HUNTINGTON, N.Y., Aug. 3, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- While kids across the country may currently be preoccupied with the next hour's TV lineup or finding someone to drive them to the mall, many parents are realizing that it's time to plan a little productivity into their child's summertime schedule - especially as the new school year starts to loom on the horizon. Experts agree, with some claiming that children may lose up to three months of learning during summer vacation if they are not frequently called upon to access and use their newly acquired knowledge. What can be done to save the situation? Enter Tom Masone and his new Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services branch.
With 16 years' worth of experience as an educator teaching high school and middle school science, Mr. Masone is a certified School District Administrator and, now, a new owner and Area Director of a Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services franchise. He also brings long-term IT field experience to his new endeavor, with over a dozen years of it involving project management. A native Long Islander who has lived in Huntington for over 20 years, Mr. Masone found in Club Z! the perfect opportunity to run his own business and put his expertise to use, all while providing a much-needed service to his local community.
Club Z! has carved out a nationwide reputation for excellence based upon their supportive tutoring style and high success rates. Offering one-on-one tutoring and the type of individualized attention that is all-but-impossible during the school year, learning sessions are conducted in the comfort and security of the child's own home, enabling tutors to more easily eliminate distractions and help build the student's study skills and academic confidence. Additionally, Mr. Masone points out that Club Z! has added features that make the program popular with parents.
"Since all tutoring occurs in the student's home, we provide very flexible scheduling, something that would not be available at some of the tutoring centers in the area," he states. Parents also appreciate the highly trained, pre-screened tutors and regular progress reports. Tutoring is offered to students of all ages and ability levels, and programs are ideal for summertime tutoring as well as school-year assistance.
SAT prep, kindergarten readiness, and study skills programs are popular choices for summertime sessions, says Mr. Masone. "Our SAT prep program is outstanding, and the one-to-one format is very effective," he states. Students are able to implement a study plan without the distractions of the school year, often leading to significant improvements in their test scores. "The kindergarten readiness program is also one that could be of great benefit to those youngsters who are a little apprehensive about starting school," he states. "And we have study skill programs for those students who need to learn how to study and organize their lives in order to make the most efficient use of their time."
Tailoring the program to the exact requirements of the student is Club Z!'s specialty. "Our philosophy is to build a relationship with our students, which we believe leads to a greater opportunity for the student to succeed," Mr. Masone says. And although parents may not expect to find kids enthusiastic about summertime learning, many students find that summer tutoring offers a useful change from the hectic school year - a chance to focus more intently on repairing academic weaknesses, developing their strengths, and even pursuing interests. And with the new school year already rapidly approaching, there's no time like the present for strengthening skills or gaining a competitive edge.
Mr. Masone is excited about his new endeavor, and adds, "I have always been very community-minded, and I see this as an avenue to bring quality services to my hometown and the surrounding areas." His new Club Z! location will serve all communities of Huntington Township, including Huntington, Huntington Station, South Huntington, Dix Hills, Greenlawn, Northport, Centerport, East Northport, Commack, and Fort Salonga.
In honor of the Huntington Club Z! grand opening, registration fees have been waived for all new clients through the end of summer. For additional information about Club Z!
