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!

My Town Tutors wants to make it easy for parents to connect with local teachers who tutor. We have two simple beliefs.
1. Teachers are great tutors!
2. Parents want great tutors for their children.
The idea was conceived in August of 2008 when I was walking the grounds of the Marshfield Fair the week before school started. A friend, another teacher, was working fourteen straight, 18-hour days for $10 an hour as a security guard. Many other security guards were teachers who needed extra money and working the Marshfield Fair was the best, and for some, only, part-time job available.
I suddenly realized that creating My Town Tutors could solve two major problems for teachers, students, and parents:
1. Teachers can use their education, experience, knowledge, and training to do what they do best, helping students achieve academically. At the same time, these teachers can have the flexibility to select their own hours and own rate of pay (definitely more than $10 an hour).
2. Parents and students can find qualified professional teachers, with unique skills to work with their child. Parents can have complete confidence that the each tutor we list has experience teaching students with variety of learning abilities and styles.
Teachers who tutor are a much better alternative for parents than the national tutoring franchises. Many of these companies rarely employ teachers, and if they do, the teachers are grossly underpaid. The national franchise tutors are usually college students who have no training or experience working with students. Additionally their fees are insanely high.
Teachers know the curriculum, content, and state standards. More importantly, teachers know children. They understand the learning process and the challenges faced by many students. They speak regularly with other teachers and have been trained to use strategies to reach many different learning styles.
The goal of My Town Tutors is really simple – to make it easy for students and parents to connect with a qualified, local teacher.
Teachers can register for ONE full year for only $12. There are no other fees for our service.
My Town Tutors has been tested successfully in the towns South of Boston. We have added some great new features to our website and are ready to provide our service in every state.
We currently have over 180 teachers registered and teachers can sign-up today.
We would love for people to comment on this blog and share your thoughts on our belief that “Teachers are great tutors.”
