Aug. 9, 2010 - PRLog -- Local couple Greg and Linda Tarsa, are proud to announce the Grand Opening of their new business College Nannies & Tutors of Cary!  The company provides in-home tutoring and is a one-stop provider of professional nanny services addressing the biggest challenges in obtaining individualized childcare services: finding the nanny, employing the nanny and back-up care when the nanny is sick or otherwise unavailable. Both graduates of Carnegie-Mellon University, with three children in college and graduate schools, the CNT mission of Building Stronger Families® was one Linda and Greg could take on with a personal passion.

When Greg lost his job as a Software Engineering Manager in the spring of 2009, like many in the same situation, he had to answer the question, “What next?”   He approached his job hunt with a great deal of energy but felt, “the economic climate was extraordinarily challenging for everyone in this area, particularly high-tech managers. If I was going to find satisfying work, it was going to have to be a career change.”

His job search became a successful one, even if it did not result in any job offers.  As Tarsa describes, “the time I spent, the skills I honed, the things I learned and the people I met during my search all made made me a better person and prepared me for whatever my next step was going to be.”  He became a regular at job networking groups and one week he attended a presentation, “Starting Your Own Business or Franchise,” presented by Dan Prendergast of the Entrepreneur’s Source—a local franchise coach.  After a series of meetings with Prendergast in which he was introduced to the concept of small business ownership, tested for aptitude and interests, and presented with three compatible franchise business models. He chose College Nannies and Tutors, “because I like working with sharp people and there is a lot of interaction with college students and educated parents in this business.” And there is a strong need.

Finding consistent, reliable, high-quality childcare is a complicated and time-consuming process and not everyone has the time to spend to do it properly. College Nannies & Tutors of Cary provides relief in the form of after-school, full-time, part-time and on-call nannies that provide a role model for children to learn from and emphasize the importance of education.

To provide nannies, they utilize a proven process, The Complete Family Approach™, to identify the needs and interests of the family and then a proprietary Role Model Match™ to recommend specific nannies. Once a family approves a matched nanny (or “manny,” as male role models are also called) their service will hire, train, insure, and pay that nanny as well as provide on-going support and training.  Should nanny become sick or otherwise unavailable, another qualified nanny can be brought in to care.

The Tutoring side of the business utilizes similar process: The Complete Student Approach™, to identify the individual needs of each student, and the Role Model Match to find someone the child will learn from, who emphasizes the importance of education, while using the specific areas of interest of each child to motivate him or her.  Whether a child needs homework help, or a more specific educational focus, there are tutors available to meet each child’s specific educational and personal goals.

“We provide in-home tutoring at this time,” says Greg, “but we plan to open a learning center within the next 12-18 months.”

“This is a great business to be in,” says Linda, “we can build stronger families and be in our community full-time.” “It has been quite a pilgrimage,” adds Greg, “I moved from ‘I need a new job,’ to ‘starting a franchise business might be interesting’, to ‘this could be a valid Plan B,’ and now, here I am, starting business with my wife building stronger families!”
