The Hometown Learning Center Advantage
Hometown Learning Centers is safe, convenient and smart! Our locations and hours are specifically designed with busy families in mind. Appointments are not necessary, and you can attend unlimited weekly tutoring sessions. Our approach focuses on treating your son or daughter as a unique individual who has the potential to succeed, given the right tools, skills, knowledge, confidence, motivation and attitude. Our proprietary process enables us to assess your child’s abilities, gaps in learning, and strengths. Using that information, we develop a Hometown Learning PathSM for your son or daughter to reach his/her fullest potential. With an open-based floor plan, and a small group learning method, we can provide the time and attention that your child needs to begin improving his academic performance.
We are NOT a Franchise
Most learning centers are national, franchised operations. Franchise operations may work well for hamburgers and donuts. Franchisers make money based on volume, and employ teams of salesmen in an effort to open more and more locations. Your child is not their first focus. Their sales machine is. Hometown Learning Centers is NOT a franchise and we are proud of that. We treat your child as the focus of our business. We are education experts who are passionate about tutoring children. We are highly selective when hiring tutors. Our individualized approach assures that our tutors focus on the what the child needs to succeed. That is our business philosophy, plain and simple.
Tried and True Techniques
There are alternatives to learning centers and many parents wonder about the efficacy of these other approaches. For example, in-home tutors might seem more convenient, but they are very costly and present a safety risk. Parents need to stay close by during the tutoring sessions to be sure the tutor is trustworthy and worth the expense. That means they can get little else done during that time.
Online sites and apps may seem better, because they are cheaper and safer than in-home tutors; however, the electronic approach also presents a few problems. First, parents need to be sure it is properly aligned with the classroom curriculum. Second, the potential for distraction and interruption is greatly increased. Incoming text messages, emails and notifications from other apps can easily take your child’s attention away from the tutoring at any given time.
