Our learning center provides a safe, positive environment where students feel welcomed, with instructors who are friendly and non-intimidating. Since its creation, Tutor-Me has created a large community of high-achieving students, parents, and teachers.
Our Mission Statement
We create a human connection to help our students reach their full potential in and out of the classroom.
Tutor-Me is best described by our mission statement: “We create a human connection to help students reach their full potential in and out of the classroom.” Tutor-Me is not just a place for enriching students’ education, but also enhancing values such as time-management and work ethic. Through this journey that the students and mentors take, the students will also build confidence and passion in their own lives.
