“We are educators and mentors by nature and that really comes across in our individualized approach and the improvements we see in our students.”
Q: How have you mentored or inspired others who are following in your footsteps?
A: At Tutoring Club of McLean, we are committed to creating confident, self-motivated learners for life. And that goal doesn’t stop with our students—I’m always encouraging my staff to develop their skill sets, follow their passions and expand their leadership roles within TCM. Our tutors have the opportunity to be life-changing role models for our students and inspire a love for lifelong learning.
Q: What’s the best advice you’ve received and how has it helped you?
A: Do something that you care about. Work with people who inspire you. I’m fulfilled each day, seeing our students advance in their academics. And I’m lucky to work with likeminded people! We are educators and mentors by nature, which comes across in our individualized approach and the improvements we see in our students. We’re proud to consistently be voted “Best Tutoring Service,” “Best SAT/ACT Program,” and a “Top Enrichment Program,” by readers of Arlington, Northern Virginia and Washington Family magazines.
Q: What changes are on the horizon in your industry? How are you preparing for them?
A: With the unprecedented changes to education due to the coronavirus, it’s more vital than ever to keep our students engaged in learning and motivated for the future. We’ve added extended hours, online sessions, learning studios and study groups, and we will follow strict health guidelines for those who will join us back in our center (when it’s safe). Our community is resilient; we’ll come out on the other side of this even stronger.
