Supplemental Tutoring Provides Grade Repair and New Hope for Struggling Students
New Club Z! area director and MBA Colette Pascual believes supplemental education is key to helping San Diego students achieve more and reach higher.
SAN DIEGO, Dec. 16, 2011 // PRNewswire // -- During this hectic time of year, many families are finding themselves with one more complication to deal with: a child struggling in school. As fall grades trickle homeward and the veil is lifted from parents' eyes, the idea that a student needs some additional help can often no longer be denied. With school resources already strained to the breaking point, supplemental tutoring services such as Club Z! provide hope for many of these students and their families, helping students to repair and raise their grades while also building the academic confidence necessary for a more successful future.
MBA and business management graduate Colette Pascual had already gained eight years of experience running her own supplemental education center by the time she decided to own and operate a Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services branch. "I entered the education business in order to seek fulfillment through working with and influencing the lives of children," she states. "Running a Club Z! franchise allows me to utilize the skills I gained in my previous experience in supplemental education."
While her previous program focused mainly on enhancing children's math and reading skills, Club Z! offers a broader set of options, providing tutoring in all academic subject areas to students of all ages and ability levels, plus programs geared towards building study skills and preparing for standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT. Club Z! uses students' own school curriculums to avoid overwhelming those who may already be behind, and to ensure that results are swift, measurable, and reflected in the classroom setting.
In addition to its wide range, Club Z! also offers a unique approach compared to traditional tutoring programs. Tutoring is conducted on a one-on-one basis in the secure and comfortable setting of the child's own home, which helps tutors to eliminate distractions and students to more easily focus on the task at hand. The approach allows the instruction to be highly individualized, tailored specifically to the student's own needs and learning style. The Club Z! program is North America's largest, offered through franchise locations nationwide, and boasting high success rates, hundreds of thousands of happy clients and an excellent 15-year reputation.
Club Z!'s methods offer additional benefits to parents, Ms. Pascual points out. Not only are sessions conducted in-home, but scheduling is flexible and parent-friendly, and tutors are pre-screened experts in their subject areas. Progress reports are provided after each session, and parents are able to witness first-hand that their child is receiving the high quality, individual attention that they need and deserve.
An advertising and marketing executive for multinational corporations before her transition into education, Ms. Pascual is looking forward to multiple aspects of operating her new Club Z! location. "I'm excited about the opportunity to help students while at the same time engaging in other activities that I enjoy, such as meeting new people and managing employees," she states. "I'm also the mother of two very young and active children, so I appreciate the flexible schedule that the Club Z! franchise provides."
Ms. Pascual is also glad to be supporting students and families within her own community. Her branch will serve the Scripps Ranch and Mira Mesa areas of San Diego, and in honor of its grand opening, registration fees have been waived for all new clients through January 31, 2012.
