Tutor Doctor, a Private, In-Home Service Helps Students Catch Up or Get Further Ahead Academically
Raleigh, NC “ The school year is starting to coming to a close soon and most parents are thinking one of two things: 1) œWow, my kid has done a great job so far! I wonder how he/she can do better? or 2) œMy child is definitely falling behind, what can I do?
The good news is that parents in either scenario have the tools to make things better in the Raleigh area with the use of Tutor Doctor. Tutor Doctor may also help a student who is only marginally achieving their potential realize how much they can succeed.
Tutor Doctor of Raleigh/Wake Forest, an expanding one-on-one, in-home tutoring service designed to help students from ages 3.5 to 96, is offering the community and students a private, easy way to catch-up or get ahead academically. Local entrepreneurs and owners of the local Tutor Doctor location Roy and Janet Pogrzeba have seen first-hand how valuable tutoring services can be for students who are struggling or looking to reach their full potential.
œAt this point in the year, it is not uncommon for parents to recognize difficulties their child may be experiencing because they are behind, said Roy Pogrzeba. œWhether the student is behind or if they want to try to get further ahead by striving for advanced placement classes or the college or their choice, we can help. We help students and parents achieve their educational goals with programs that are specifically designed to fit the needs of each individual.
The tutors at Tutor Doctor use a variety of supplemental materials, but the franchise primarily leverages the curriculum, course and text the student is currently working with to ensure the most relevant tutoring is provided. Tutor Doctor also works with the students' current teacher to ensure that they are meeting their expectations and the student's needs.
The rise of tutoring is becoming so pervasive that it is changing the face of education. Due to heightened competition in the classroom and governmental programs requiring schools identified as failing to provide tutoring to students, this $4 billion dollar per year industry, once an upper-class phenomenon, has extended to the middle class and beyond. In fact, tutoring has continued to grow at a record pace and in each of the past three years, consumer spending on tutoring has increased 7 percent to 10 percent.
œIn today's fast-paced world where dual incomes and high academic competition are the norm, one-on-one, in-home tutoring ensures that each student is being given the utmost attention and tools for success, said Roy Pogrzeba. œIt also gives our tutors the satisfaction of seeing their students' progress and eliminates the parents from becoming a taxi service by not having to bring their children to a tutoring center. We come to you.
In addition to servicing school-age students needing help in various subjects, Tutor Doctor has also proven valuable for the rapidly growing home-schooled population, as well as for seniors wanting to learn technology skills or a foreign language.
Tutor Doctor has been a popular service with families. The Wake Weekly readers voted Tutor Doctor as Best of the Best in Tutoring for 2012. œWe were thrilled at receiving this award since we work so hard on servicing our families and helping students be successful said Roy Pogrzeba.
