Do You Smell Smoke? Why Tutoring Is Like Firefighting

Once you’ve decided your child needs some extra help from a tutor, you may be wondering how it all works. What strategies will help your child get back on track as quickly as possible?  We like to think of tutoring as a bit like firefighting.

I couldn't offer enough positive reviews or references for Jim Waldman and his entire "TEAM"! They were able to start a tutoring schedule with my high school student in the late spring, within two... days of my first inquiry! Then the billing process is simple, well explained and easy to take care of. The quality of the tutor him self, and his follow up through out the summer and into this year has been professional and sincere! Thank you Tutor A Team for a job well done!
