My Town Tutors is making a huge commitment for the 2014 – 2015 school year to be the #1 tutoring resource for parents and teachers in America. Our motto is “Teachers are great tutors!” Parents love the fact that every teacher in our directory is a teacher!
March Madness is a great time of year. During the NCAA tournament, we will be pairing up 68 of the top twitter accounts to see who our 2015 Champion. The 2014 field of 68 teams was impressive. There were exciting match-ups and an amazing Final Four!
Last year @jonsamuelson was crowned our 2014 March Madness for Teachers National Champion! Will he be able to defend his title.
Here is the field so far! Seeds will be based on number of followers! Check out our Top 365 U.S. Educators too!
The seedings will be announced later this week. Stay tuned! Check out our Connected Educators of the week.
