OXFORD, Pa., June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Private tutoring can often transform a struggling student into a successful one, but families in rural areas sometimes face the additional challenge of traveling many miles to meet with tutors. For these families, as well as those living in more urban or suburban surroundings, it's always good news when a new Club Z! branch brings convenient, in-home tutoring right to students' kitchen tables or living room floors.
New Club Z! Tutoring Services Area Director Jennifer McKee is well aware of the difference convenience can make. "Living in a rural area, families have to travel long distances for additional education services," she notes. "With Club Z! in the area, traveling will be one less worry for families ... which creates more family time."
One-on-one, in-home tutoring also has a myriad of other benefits for students and families. "Tutors are teachers or degreed professionals," says Ms. McKee, who has been a teacher for 10 years and is currently completing her master's degree in Education. "They are matched up on-on-one with students." In the privacy and security of their own homes, children are more confident and less distracted, allowing both student and tutor to concentrate solely on the learning process and on improving the student's academic abilities and study skills.
In fact, identifying students' learning styles and maximizing their study skills is one area in which Club Z! excels. Not only do tutors make efforts with every student to use effective teaching methods and instill good learning habits, but Club Z!'s Learning Built to Last initiative offers a concentrated study skills program in which tutors help high school students diagnose their most natural learning styles, identify their current study strengths and weaknesses, and develop an individualized plan for building academic improvement and success.
As an education professional, Ms. McKee understands how one-on-one tutoring at the right moment can make all the difference to a student's long-term academic prospects. By opening her own Club Z! branch, she hopes to provide "an affordable resource for Oxford and surrounding area families, to go for that little extra push to enhance the education of students." In addition to Oxford, the branch will serve students in the Nottingham and Cochranville, PA areas, as well as nearby Cecil County, MD.
Tutoring builds students' confidence as well as their skills, and as a long-term area teacher and resident, a volunteer cheerleading coach for the Oxford Golden Bears, and a sponsor for Oxford Little League and the Golden Bears' Youth Football and Cheerleading programs, helping local children succeed is a mission close to Ms. McKee's heart.
As North America's largest one-on-one in-home tutoring company, Club Z! offers SAT/ACT prep programs, foreign language tutoring, and tutoring in all core subject areas to students of all ages and abilities. In honor of the Oxford Club Z! grand opening, registration fees have been waived for all new clients. For additional information about Club Z!
