Students, parents and teachers of the Westport school district now have a new option when seeking quality tutoring. Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services, the nation’s fastest growing in-home tutoring program, has opened a branch in Wilton, offering services to all private, public and home schooled students in the Lower Fairfield County area.
Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services’ educational strategy is unique among tutoring programs. It offers one on one tutoring by highly qualified teachers at affordable prices right in the student’s home.
A variety of academic experts have researched and concluded that students excel when they receive individualized instruction on a one to one basis with the instructor -- the Club Z! model of tutoring. Deborah Frati, Area Director of Club Z!, explains, “The added component of in-home tutoring affords students as comfortable and non-competitive of a setting as possible in which to learn, eliminating the pressure and embarrassment of the classroom setting.” Deborah adds, “In-home tutoring allows the student and tutor to focus on the lesson at hand, giving the student the individual attention he or she needs, and enabling Club Z! tutors to reach children more quickly and effectively.”
Nationally known assessment tests used to monitor the effectiveness of the Club Z! tutoring program show marked improvement in students’ grades and comprehension after only a couple of months of tutoring.
Club Z! tutors are locally recruited, the vast majority of whom hold state teaching certificates and currently teach or have taught in public or private schools. Most have at least a Bachelors degree with 2 or more years’ teaching or tutoring experience. Many have specialized skills including expertise in teaching students with learning disabilities. Club Z! tutors teach using the curriculum of the student’s classroom and do not introduce new curriculum or subject material that will further overwhelm students. Students are encouraged to work at their own pace.
Club Z! offers tutoring in all core subjects – reading, math, science, computers, language arts and much more. Club Z! also provides tutoring in study skills, SAT, ACT, and other assessment tests preparation, as well as specialized services for children with learning disabilities or needing speech therapy.
