I've been really pleased with the Tutoring Club. Brian runs a great crew that have been of tremendous help to both of my kids. My daughter was there for a period in fifth grade for help with math, my son for his freshman year helping him acclimate.
The staff is really in tune with the kids, regardless of age and needs. My kids didn't always have the same tutor (mostly they did), but when they had someone "new", things didn't skip a beat.
I think that the staff are in the loop on what's going on in the school district and the various demands the different schools have.
While my kids weren't thrilled with having to go to tutoring, I think they thought it was okay. There wasn't any sort of pushback on going. The feedback I got from my kids after their sessions was that they were good, helpful, worth the time.
The staff are clearly well trained. They specifically know how to approach children of various ages with differing degrees of need. If there is a test, they know how to prep them for a test. If they need to review, they review. If there is homework, the homework gets done with the kid walking away understanding what they just completed.
While I have the time to help my kids, I find that having an "outsider" helps avoid all of the nonsense that kids often pull with parents. They have a better attitude. I think this is because of the lack of familiarity and they can't use their usual excuses about why they can't do something, or don't want to, or don't get it. They are game on and want to make a good impression.
I'm very pleased with Tutoring Club and will continue to use them as the need arises.
