BETHESDA, Md., Dec. 15, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- When it comes to helping struggling children to succeed and thrive in school, there's simply no substitute for individual attention and direction - and yet, in today's crowded classrooms, teachers' resources are already strained to the breaking point. Parents, on the other hand, cannot always provide the assistance their child requires, despite the best of intentions, and many tutoring programs only succeed in offering new crowded groupings in which children falling behind continue to fall through the cracks. To provide students and their families with support and hope, however, there is another alternative: the one-on-one, in-home tutoring offered by programs such as Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services.
As North America's largest one-on-one in-home tutoring program, with an excellent 15-year reputation and hundreds of thousands of happy clients, the Club Z! franchise is well-respected and well-loved for its supportive tutoring style and high success rates. The security and familiarity of the home environment allow many children to concentrate more easily and help to eliminate distractions - ultimately building the child's study skills and boosting their academic confidence.
Meanwhile, Club Z!'s curriculum is centered around the child's own schoolwork whenever possible, with supplemental material only as needed, to avoid overwhelming a student who may already be behind and to make sure results are easily measurable both at home and in the classroom.
Tutors are experts in their subject areas, and tutoring is available to students of all age levels and abilities. The program offers assistance in all core academic subjects, from basic math and reading, to preparation for standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT, study skill building, and more.
Club Z!'s programs are popular with students because of their supportive style, but they are also popular with parents, who appreciate the pre-screened tutors, the flexible scheduling, and the convenience of in-home sessions. This method also allows parents to receive regular progress reports and to witness first-hand that children are receiving the high-quality individual attention they need and deserve.
The tutoring program's Bethesda area director is a local resident herself, a former scientist who was constantly involved in outreach programs for students and teachers. She is excited about her new branch's ability to help Maryland children build study skills and reach toward their academic potential - especially in the competitive environment of the greater Washington, D.C. area of Montgomery County.
With year-end grades trickling homeward and many parents just coming to realize that their child needs help, the branch's opening comes at the right time to help families plan a fresh start for the new year.
"As a parent myself, and very education focused," Bethesda's Club Z! area director comments, "I was looking for a business model that can help kids raise grades in school, improve their academic achievements, and make a difference in the family's life." With Club Z!, she is confident that she's found the right approach.
The new location will serve students and families in Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Rockville, Gaithersburg, and surrounding areas.
In honor of this Club Z! grand opening, registration fees have been waived for all new clients. For additional information about Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services, please visit http://www.clubztutoring.com/Bethesda or call 301-424-0444.
