My Town Tutors was created in Hanover, Massachusetts in 2009 by a high school teacher with one simple goal – to be a great South Shore tutoring resource for parents, teachers, and guidance counselors. Our motto is “Teachers are great tutors!”
My Town Tutors lists over 250 teachers who tutor, mostly from the South Shore. We make it easy for South Shore parents to connect with a local teacher who tutors.
My Town Tutors has two simple beliefs.
1. Teachers are great tutors!
2. Parents want great tutors for their children!
My Town Tutors is a huge hit on the South Shore because we provide a great service to many groups.
Parents and students can find qualified professional teachers, with unique skills to work with their child. Parents can have complete confidence that the each of the tutors we list in this area has experience teaching students with variety of learning abilities and styles.
Teachers who tutor are a great alternative to 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, these companies charge insanely high fees.
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.
“I have seen incredible progress with my child. He went from a failing grade at mid-term to a B+. I have seen improvement in his grades, but more importantly in his self-esteem.” South Shore 10th grade parent.
Teachers can use their education, experience, knowledge, and training to do what they do best, help students achieve academically. At the same time, these teachers can have the flexibility to select their own hours and own rate of pay.
We list teachers from almost every school district on the South Shore. We currently have several teachers who are tutoring students regularly. We even have two high school math teachers who are turning away students because they are so busy.
“Tutoring is a great way to earn extra money. I enjoy the flexibility of selecting hours that fit my schedule. It is also a great way to connect with a student. It so rewarding to hear with pride a student report an improved grade to me!” South Shore Teacher / Math Tutor
Guidance counselors can take one more thing off their busy plates. Guidance counselors no longer have to ask around to find a tutor for a student. Guidance counselors in the South Shore know that qualified teachers are very capable tutors. Now when a parent inquires about a tutor, the guidance department can refer the person to My Town Tutors.
“My Town Tutors has been a great resource for us. In the past we have had difficulty locating tutors for some subjects. Now we have a database of tutors from the entire South Shore. If we do not have a physics tutor in Hanover, we can connect with a Marshfield High or Holbrook High teacher. It has been a great time saver for us!” Hanover High Guidance Counselor
The goal of My Town Tutors is really simple – to make it easy for students and parents to connect with a qualified, local teacher.
