About this tutor

We are different from other tutoring centers because students work face to face the whole hour with college educated tutors at a low 3:1 ratio or less so students get all of the attention they deserve. Also, we teach all subjects under one roof, so with the hours you purchase, you can use them for any subject. Our tutors are experts in their field and will help you reach your academic goals.

I enjoy your low tutor to student ratio because with that we can develop relationships with our students that help in the teaching process. I also love that we are focused on our local area schools so what we teach directly relates to local classrooms in Rocklin, Loomis, Lincoln, Roseville, and Granite Bay. We are trained in Common Core and in explaining the mysteries of this new system. Students that join our team find us supportive, friendly, and professional. That is beause we love what we do!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We work face to face with students with a low 3:1 ratio. Our tutors are all college educated professional tutors. We guide students by teaching to their learning style. Success comes with the partnership our tutors create with their students.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I, the owner, Sherrie, have a degree in English and a teaching credential. I chose tutoring over teaching in a classroom because I love the more personal setting I have with students. I feel I can make a real difference here.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Our prices range from $46/hr to $40/hr, depending on how many hours students purchase up front.


How did you get started teaching?

I have always tutored either as a volunteer or as a paid professional from college into my teaching program. I started as an ESL tutor and branched out from there until I was able to open this business, hire tutors with all skill levels, and have the ability to help all struggling students achieve their goals.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with ESL adult and teens. Currently we teach local students. Some have learning issues like ADHD or dyslexia, for example. We have techniques that help students learn to manage any learning issues they may have. Everyone is capable of succeeding.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We had a very frustrated mother come to us one day in tears. She could not work with her 6th grader because she could not understand the new Common Core math. The homework was becoming an issue in the house. We gently took over, explained the concepts in a way the student could understand. Now they have peaceful evenings and great grades! Then in the summer, this student prepared with us for the next year, and the result of that bit of extra effort was success!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a tutor in your area of expertise?

I would advise that you make sure all tutors are college educated, not high school kids. Also make sure they are trained in common core, not that they have just heard of it. Like it or not, it is the new system in the schools, so kids must learn this new way of doing the work. And finally, I would make sure you have reserved times with a tutor with a low tutor to student ratio so you make sure you know your student is at the effective table with the correct tutor who is qualified and attentive.


What questions should students think through before talking to tutors about their needs?

They should make sure the tutor is receptive to their individual needs. That is the whole point of tutoring, getting that extra individualized attention. Teachers are forced to teach the same way to everyone in a classroom because they have so many students. The point of hiring a tutor is to get individualized attention from a patient tutor who will teach to your learning style.
