Southfield firm hires onsite teacher to support employees
By: Christensen Law
Located in a space next to the law firm offices, the Christensen Academy assists staff member children, by providing direct access to a teacher/tutor with nearly 40 years of teaching experience in metro Detroit.
The program, led by Marsha Denise Carreker, helps second through ninth grade students who have returned to school this fall. She is being assisted by her husband Tyrone, a retired educator. The program includes the following components for each student:
• Continuous academic assistance throughout the day as needed
• Two hours of individualized one-on-one tutorial instruction per week
• Academic assistance in preparation for school Standardized Test
• Prepared physical activities during the school day
• Parent conferences throughout the week
"It has been a wonderful experience so far," said Kim Martin, a staff member with two daughters in the new program.
"So far, it's going pretty well," said Ericka Matthews, another staff member with a daughter in the program. "Mrs. Carreker is great with my daughter and the students."
Law firm founder David Christensen said his company is always looking for new ways to help support their team members and is glad to fund the tutorial program.
"In these days you have to be creative and think about the needs of everyone trying to deal with circumstances that we have had little experience with than ever before," said Christensen. "I am excited that a little bit of burden has been lifted from our team members, and they can stay focused on serving our clients and community."
