At TutorVille, our mission is to foster a lifelong love for learning that extends well beyond the classroom.
TutorVille was founded in 2009 with the understanding that every student has the right to an education, and we recognize that the one-size-fits-all approach is not for everyone.
We are a boutique tutoring firm that customizes each student’s educational plan to fit their specific needs and learning style. We offer personalized one-on-one tutoring from Pre K-12th grade to ensure each student’s academic advancement in all subject areas and standardized testing. We also offer a K – 12 homeschool option through our partner school, TTU K-12 as well as a full college application/essay program.
Our company objective is not simply to increase our students’ grades. We genuinely care about each student’s personal growth – intellectually and emotionally. With a holistic approach and the nurturing guidance of our tutors, we work hard to advance our students’ confidence and self-assurance for long-term success.
Every one of our tutors goes through an extensive training program, and we take the time to carefully select the ideal tutor to work with your child. At TutorVille, we are here to see you through the entirety of your educational journey and ensure that your child achieves the highest level of success.
