Nancy's goal has always been to help students improve their grades and, more importantly, build their self-confidence. Her business, Tutor Doctor, is a supplemental educational company that focuses on helping students of all ages reach their academic potential through convenient, affordable one-to-one tutoring (whether it be in their home, a location of another choice, or online). I believe every student can learn with the right approach, and my tutors collaborate when needed with the students’ teachers and family to identify the best learning strategies. We follow the school’s curriculum and build an individualized plan for each student to achieve success.
Our student age group has been quite vast and has included a wide breadth of subjects. Our youngest student was sixteen months (speech therapy) and our oldest was 93 (PhotoShop)! The majority of the student base is in school and the subjects have included language arts, math (including IB AP calculus), science, statistics, AP courses, various languages, ESL, special needs, and test prep. Further,we have a wonderful program that focuses on moving accountability to the student from the parent while developing the executive skills required for students to be successful in life. This program is geared towards 6th – 10th graders, and we help with study skills, organizational skills, time management, prioritization, and others areas.
Nancy believes the key to her success as an entrepreneur is passion. She wants every student to do the best he can and believe in himself. When asked how she knew when she "made it," Nancy's response was "I truly do not know if I will ever believe that I “made it” given that I’m never satisfied with what I have achieved. Do I feel that I have “made it” – no but I do feel that I am making a positive difference".
