Realistically, the classroom is a busy environment where personal growth and learning cannot always compete. Unfortunately students begin to fall behind. Parents seeking the services of Tutor Doctor will immediately see that aside from experienced tutors, the tutoring sessions are centralized around the child’s homework and personal learning. Our tutors assess the child’s current performance offering contextual support that will focalize on the ‘exact’ steps that the child will need to relearn, practice and improve upon in order for growth to occur in the classroom. Our tutors bring this structure and academic routine right into the home, rather than a learning centre. Since the child works with the same tutor throughout the duration of the mentoring period, enduring improvements can be made to both the child’s report card, as well as ensuring that they develop learning strategies for life success.
Education Consultant of the Kingston franchise, Sara Hailstone, is a certified secondary school teacher who understands the realities of the classroom and appeals to Tutor Doctor’s vision. “Although teachers go to great lengths to ensure that every single one of their students is improving, there are many individuals that fall through the cracks. That is where we can help. We are extremely flexible in terms of helping our students achieve success. We work with the parents’ schedule and financial situation. We strongly support connections between the child’s tutor and the teacher, as well as gearing our tutoring sessions around growth, not quick fixes. If there are any concerns from parents about the match between their child and tutor, we find another tutor as soon as possible. Tutor Doctor is not a band-aid solution!”
Tutor Doctor relies on strong affiliations while it is seeking to make lasting connections with the Kingston community through sponsorships and partnerships. “I am thrilled to have secured a partnership with the Faculty of Education at Queen’s University. We are looking for new graduates that will give our students a fresh approach to learning with the academic credentials to support our ideals. This is one of the many directions we have taken in ensuring quality tutoring services.”
Tutor Doctor is further affiliated with the National Tutor Association (NTA) whose mission is to foster advancement of professional and peer tutoring through research and certification while upholding the NTA Code of Ethics. Tutor Doctor has achieved international success as well. Awarded #1 Franchisor and #1 Franchisor Sales Partner in 2009 at the FranNet awards for the year of 2009, Tutor Doctor is one of the fastest growing franchises in North America.
We want to show Kingston and Belleville that as a local franchise with much success, we are here to support the community through various strands. We are actively seeking tutors with specializations and are accepting resumes at this point. As well, please contact me for any sponsorships, partnerships or tutoring services. We are happy to provide our students and community alternative methods in learning and success. Hailstone can be reached at Sara.Hailstone@
