About Us

The Tutoring Place was born in August of 1999 out of a desire to create a welcoming and comfortable place for students to work one-on-one with tutors who enjoy helping students. We’ve been helping thousands of kids ever since, and we were recently voted Best Tutor by the Park Cities People newspaper. Our goal at The Tutoring Place is to do all that we can to help students understand their schoolwork in an environment without distractions. We work with students of all ages in all classroom subjects.

Because of the variety of their needs, we don’t require time commitments from our students. Students can come to us as often or as infrequently as they need. All tutoring sessions are by appointment, and we suggest that appointments be scheduled as early as possible; however, because we have 15 – 20 tutors on staff, we can often schedule an appointment even at the last minute.

Our tutors come to us from all walks of life — many are students themselves, and some are full-time teachers. Our ideal tutor has a thorough knowledge of the subject matter plus the ability to communicate effectively. Of course, not every tutor works in each academic area, but many of our tutors can help students in several subjects. All of our tutors love the experience of working with students in trusting and respectful relationships. Because our tutors understand the importance of identifying each student’s individual learning style, they can teach students how to interpret the information conveyed at school and give them the support and encouragement they need to succeed.

We do our best to place every student with the tutor who is most capable of working not only with that individual student’s subject but also with that individual student’s personality, and we are always willing to do everything we can to ensure that every appointment is both successful and enjoyable.

Subject-based tutoring isn’t the only thing we offer at The Tutoring Place. We also plan group review sessions for semester exams, offer study skills seminars, and work with students on test preparation for PSAT®, SAT®, ACT®, AP®, and ISEE® tests.

In addition to all of this, students can use our classroom as a study hall for individual studying or group projects. Our classroom offers a quiet environment in which students can work uninterrupted, and we encourage students to use it free of charge.

During the school year, The Tutoring Place is open Mondays through Thursdays from 4pm to 9pm and Sundays from 2pm to 5pm. Our summertime hours are flexible to be able to accommodate students’ activities.
