GREENSBORO, N.C., March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nothing benefits a student's prospects for academic success like individual attention, but with today's packed classrooms and hectic schedules, even the best of teachers and parents cannot always provide the level of support a child may need. That's where tutoring services enter the picture - but even here, students often meet in groups and compete for the educational time and resources they desperately require.
New Club Z! Area Directors and owners Christine and Ryan Anderson aim to provide students and parents with another option, by bringing the nationwide franchise's renowned tutoring methods and individualized approach to Greensboro and surrounding areas. Whether they are struggling in a particular subject area or needing to catch up to grade level after a disappointing report card, Club Z!'s tutors meet with students one-on-one and in the comfort and security of their own homes. This method boosts children's ability to focus and gradually builds their academic confidence, since distractions can easily be minimized and it is clear that they have the undivided attention of their tutor.
Helping children in need is no new subject to Christine Anderson, a passionate teacher with undergraduate degrees in anthropology and biology as well as a Master's Degree in Education. Her husband Ryan, who holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA, is a less obvious match for the field, but he realized his own flair for instruction while teaching SCUBA courses. "We needed to find something we were both interested in, and to which we could both contribute," says Ryan. "We explored a number of options, but Club Z! leverages Christine's education background and my management background, so it was a great match."
The Club Z! franchise is no newcomer to the education industry - in fact, it is North America's largest one-on-one in-home tutoring program, boasting hundreds of thousands of happy clients and an excellent reputation stretching back more than 15 years. The business is well-respected and well-loved for its supportive tutoring style and high success rates.
Club Z!'s programs are a perfect fit for many students specifically because they can be tailored to each child's exact requirements - tutoring is available for students of all ages and at all ability levels, Pre-K through college, whether for academic subjects, standardized test preparation, or study skill improvement. Parents also benefit from Club Z!'s personal touches: scheduling is flexible and requires no added transportation time or costs, and tutors meet with parents for progress reports after each session.
Having served as a science teacher at both high schools and community colleges across the country, Christine is thrilled that she and her husband will be bringing their combined instructional and business skills home to North Carolina, where they have now lived for several years. "We are excited to start helping local youth and to act as a resource to the local schools," says Ryan. The Andersons' new branch will serve the western half of Guilford County.
