Q: What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?
A: Witnessing the excitement of our students and staff as they turn out victories—there’s no better feeling! How cool is it to coach a student and watch new doors open for colleges, financial aid and scholarships? Or help another earn their first A in math after they gave up on themself? Or for another, find a system that works to finish the quarter with no missing homework for the first time? We always look forward to seeing what our students achieve!
Q: How have you mentored or inspired others who are following in your footsteps?
A: Training and mentoring our skilled and dedicated educators is a critical part of our job. Our tutors can be life-changing for students, so investing in their professional development and encouraging them to find their strengths, pursue their passions and expand their leadership roles within our business is paramount. We follow our core values—Nurturing, Fun, Accountable, Respectful, Inspiring and Integrity—to guide us toward excellence. And as a national franchise leader, Tutoring Club of McLean shares our best practices with other TC centers.
Q: What advice would you offer to women just starting out?
A: Trust in your ability to succeed. By nature, women tend to possess more self-doubt than men, which inhibits them from being the leaders they’re capable of becoming. Trust the strengths and passions that have led you to where you are. We encourage women—as we do our students and staff—to strive for excellence.
