Bright Apple Tutoring Service, Inc., aimed at matching professional teachers and tutors with students in all grades and subjects, is proud to announce expansion of its operation to include the Pasadena/Glendale area.
“We are very excited to be entering the Pasadena/Glendale area,” said Laurie Hurley, president of Bright Apple. “Our business has grown substantially in the past four years and we have tutored more than 1,000 kids since opening in June of 2002. The demand for personalized tutoring where the parents do not have to drive anywhere to get their kids the help they need is really fulfilling a much-needed service in the community.”
Hurley is a tutor broker, which means she contracts with qualified tutors and matches them with students individually. By providing this personalized tutoring, Hurley eliminates peer pressure and creates an environment where your child feels comfortable asking questions. A relaxed environment at the kitchen table is conducive to a productive tutoring session that instills self-confidence and raises your child's self-esteem.
At Bright Apple, tutoring takes place in the client's home and is always one-on-one, using the school curriculum and focusing on teaching the concepts, homework support, organizational skills, test-taking strategies and study skills.
Also, since many busy parents don't have time to drive to a learning center, one-on-one tutoring offers them the convenience of in-home tutoring seven days a week. A schedule will be arranged to fit the parents' needs, according to Hurley.
This year more than six million students are expected to seek qualified tutors and finding the right tutor is essential for academic success. At Bright Apple all tutors are dedicated professionals who truly enjoy interacting with a child one-on-one to help them attain their academic goals. They have been thoroughly interviewed, references checked and a background check completed.
