There are a few reasons:
Teachers are the best tutors.
Independent school teachers have the most summer vacation availability.
Most independent school teachers come with experience working with placement agencies.
Independent school families tend to appreciate the benefits of hiring an independent school teacher as a tutor. Every independent school has their own special qualities, and every teacher at these schools has his or her own unique skills. However, all Summer Blazers tutors carry with them a deep understanding and respect for the culture of independent schools. Summer tutoring by an independent school teacher can take the form of a private, custom made summer school class taught by an expert. This separates us from other agencies.
Of course! We serve all students and all different types of learning profiles. We believe that students who are transferring from a public school into an independent school will find our services particularly helpful.
80%. This is much more than other agencies because our tutors have more experience.
No, but you may if you wish. Many tutors make use of our agency rather than act independently.
Yes. There is a $25 fee to cover the cost of a CORI background check.
There is no extra fee or hidden charge.
All tutors must be current independent school teachers. They are interviewed, they submit proof of employment, and we conduct a CORI check.
