We assist our students by going back to the foundation and filling in the missing conceptual gaps that are hindering your child’s success. John Hooi’s method is to consolidate current expectations and then move ahead of requirements. Our Slogan is to “work smart” not inefficiently.
Our programs provide affordable “One-on-One” tutoring in your home, offering much better value and results than other learning centers that generally offer a “One-to-Four” teacher-student ratio. Your child shouldn’t have to wait to learn, and our “One-on-One” sessions guarantee them the personalized attention they need and deserve. We also feel that convenience is important. Therefore, we eliminate the inconvenience of you having to come to us, and instead, we come to you.
Tutor Doctor uses a variety of well-known books and educational materials to supplement our customized programs, but primarily, we leverage the curriculum and text the student is currently working with to ensure the most relevant tutoring is provided. We also work with the student’s current teacher to ensure that we are meeting the student and teacher’s expectations.
If we compare the Tutor Doctor’s services to the traditional center-based tutoring operations, the superiority of the in-home, one-on-one tutoring model becomes obvious. The Tutor Doctor Platform matches a highly qualified tutor with a student in the privacy and comfort of their own home. Students prefer this stress-free approach to learning as they can progress at their own pace and are free from peer pressure and the embarrassment they often feel in traditional learning environments. By removing the intimidation and fear of failure, students suddenly become comfortable, confident and eager to learn.
Unlike many tutoring programs that require parents to bring their child to a tutoring center, at Tutor Doctor we provide students with affordable, professional, one-on-one, individualized tutoring services in the comfort of their own home. No longer is a parent’s time wasted by dropping off, waiting, and picking up their children from a learning center. As well, parents and students with limited transportation are no longer precluded from enjoying the benefits of extra-curricular learning.
Today’s parents also greatly value the flexibility that Tutor Doctor provides. Parents are no longer limited to the times dictated by traditional center-based tutoring companies. Lesson times can be arranged to fit into the hectic family schedule without any difficulty. For many families this also means that extra-curricular activities can be more easily coordinated while the student receives the academic support he or she needs.
Traditional tutoring centers teach through multiple student groups with a set curriculum and little time for individualized instruction or help. The one-on-one instruction provided by Tutor Doctor is superior to this approach. One-on-one learning has been proven to be the very best way to help children who are behind in their studies, discover the learning styles and methods that can help them catch up.
Our tutors also use a student’s homework as the core curriculum for helping them succeed in the classrooms. Traditional tutoring centers provide very little individualization as they use set curriculum that’s over and above the student’s existing homework. This creates a further burden on a child who’s already behind, by adding to their overall work load.
Contact with a student’s current teachers is also important. Traditional tutoring centers generally have no contact with classroom teachers but our tutors are often in regular contact with student’s teachers, beginning with a teacher feedback assessment requested for each student. Tutors then work hand-in-hand with a student’s teachers to create a tutoring program that is geared towards the student’s needs.
Tutor Doctor’s services cover all grade levels, from kindergarten to university, and incorporate an understanding of different student learning styles. We even provide tutoring for adults. Each in-home tutoring program is custom-designed to meet the student’s specific needs and interests while addressing the underlying foundations of concepts learned. The program fills in missing bricks of academic structure, consolidates that with current expectations, and then moves the student ahead to future requirements.
By working collaboratively with students, parents and teachers, Tutor Doctor tutors provide the best supplemental, personalized instruction along with the motivation and confidence needed to help students succeed. With a growing market need, and such a superior service offering, it isn’t difficult to see why parents and students find the Tutor Doctor offering so refreshing.
