We understand how important it is not just to find a tutor for your student, but to find the right tutor. That is why we put our tutors through a thorough screening and qualification process to ensure they will produce results for our students. While some private tutoring companies will use high school and college students as tutors, our focus is building a staff of tutors in San Jose who are certified teachers, college degreed professionals and/or highly experienced in-home tutors in their respective subjects. We have found this method to be the most beneficial for all students involved.
Our in-home tutors near you have classroom teaching experience or extensive experience providing tutoring services, and they have proven to have a real passion for their field of expertise and for sharing their knowledge with students. We extensively screen our candidates by doing thorough background checking and reference checking to ensure the safest environment for all our clients. All of our tutors near you have agreed to be routinely drug tested.
In our initial consultation plays a large role in helping us find a tutor in San Jose who's the perfect fit for you. During the consultation with you and your student, we will do a thorough evaluation of your student's strengths and weaknesses and decide on the specific areas in which your student needs private tutoring. We think about your student's personality and who he/she would "click with" too. Personality matching is so important! After that, we use our thorough matching process to determine the best tutor near you for your student based on certain criteria, including:
At Club Z!, we understand the importance of consistency in the learning and development process of each student. This is why we focus on ensuring that we not only find a tutor near you who's correctly matched to your student, but that the tutor we find is available for every session moving forward. Weekend and after school tutoring doesn't work well if the tutor is rarely available to help your student! Our hope is that our tutors in San Jose will develop a special relationship with their students and will feel just as proud of your student's success as you do! Don't let a revolving door of different tutors and teaching methods at some private tutoring companies hold your student back from the success that is just a call away with Club Z!.
Our private tutoring services are normally conducted in the comfort and privacy of our client's homes. Most of our clients enjoy the convenience of private, in-home after school tutoring because it removes the hassle of traveling to and from an after school tutoring center. However, it is not uncommon that our clients request that we tutor at public libraries and similar locations, and our home tutors near you are more than happy to accommodate that. We have found that the long-term results are much stronger with in-home tutoring than with private tutoring at another location. Why? It's important for students to develop good learning and study habits at home...not just at school or the library. It's easiest to teach this when a student is used to focusing and being productive at home and used to ignoring the distractions that exist in any normal home. Our goal isn't just to find a tutor for your student for one subject. It's to teach your student effective productivity skills for life, and the ability to work well at home is one of these skills.
Yes! Many after school tutoring companies use a standard program for every student that goes over every principle or concept, no matter the skill level or what the student has learned in school. We know that this can be a strategy for disaster, since not all schools and teachers are the same. It's easy to find a tutor who can review the same concepts with every student, no matter what. Our goal isn't to do what's easy. It's to do what's right. We focus on developing a private tutoring plan that is unique to the student's needs in their grade, subject and curriculum. That is why we work with the student's specific school curriculum to determine the best course of action and the best structure for your student's after school tutoring sessions. We will focus on the homework schedule and upcoming tests to ensure the student is staying on track in school, while approaching each day with the confidence they need to succeed. Every student is different. Outside of Club Z! of San Jose, it's difficult to find tutors near you who are willing to treat your child as the individual he/she is...because most other tutors have their hands tied and are married to one private tutoring style, mandated by their tutoring centers, whether they like it or not.
No, you do not have to sign a contract. At Club Z!, we believe that we should earn your business with every private tutoring session and do not require the signing of long-term contracts to use our services. Our confidence in our tutors near you and our processes to produce results is what allows us to offer this no-obligation business model, when most in the industry do not. As with any business, we do have an agreement that outlines the details of the relationship, but this is not a long-term tutoring services contract. Part of the agreement explains how to cancel or suspend your private tutoring services. If you're shopping and considering other private tutoring services companies, be sure to read through anything they give you to sign. Many companies lock in their clients long-term with no way to get out of the contract. The only instance with us where there may be some sort of contract involved is when a special or offer is being redeemed for free services.
We pride ourselves on producing results for our students that will set them up for long-term success. Our belief is that our results should always clearly prove to you why you are using our in-home tutoring services. That is why we focus so much on helping you find a tutor who's the best possible match and developing a plan in the beginning for ongoing success. We will work with you in our initial consultation to discuss options, likely results and lay out this plan for success. Our private tutoring services method have delivered amazing results for students all across the US & Canada since 1995.
We know how important it is for a parent to be involved in the private tutoring & education process, which is why we include you every step of the way. We will meet with both you and the student to ensure everyone is on the same page from day one. We will outline a plan and provide progress reports from our tutoring services that match with the school, curriculum, and student's grades. We will also work to develop a plan for future success by working with you to help you understand how you should be involved moving forward. We encourage all parents to be as involved as they would like and to ensure they are happy with the home tutoring services we provide.
Depending on the needs of each student, we will work with their school and their teachers to uncover any areas where the student needs extra help or attention, and we'll cater our after school tutoring services to fit those needs. By working with the school curriculum, we will ensure the student stays on track and we will periodically check with teachers to ensure the grades are consistently improving. This is especially important in cases where the student needs improvement in study skills, attentiveness, test anxiety and other things that may not be noticed in our in-home tutoring sessions.
