A Message From Our Founder
by Brian R. McElroy
Dear Students and Parents,
It’s a universally known fact: one-on-one tutoring is an invaluable supplement to a truly great education. No student is too smart, too old or too young to benefit from private instruction, and no student should ever be ashamed to ask for extra help. Socrates tutored Plato, and Plato tutored Aristotle; today these three figures are considered some of the most influential thinkers in history.
Not only does private tutoring have the obvious benefit of helping students achieve higher scores on standardized tests such as the SAT, ACT, ISEE, GRE and GMAT, but it can also help shape them into truly well-rounded, intelligent and perceptive learners. Thus, the finest tutors are not only teachers in the strictest sense, but mentors and role models as well.
But where does one look to find an exceptional tutor? Naturally, the Internet seems like a great place to start. Problem is, it’s hard to know which company to trust. It’s laughable how many tutoring websites claim that their company’s tutors are the best without even telling you who their tutors are. They promise you the moon and the stars, and toss around meaningless score guarantees, but remember that no tutoring service can truly guarantee your success, especially the ones who keep the identities of their tutors behind closed doors.
Ultimately, the best assurance of your student's success is not proprietary materials or empty promises; it is the experience and dedication level of your particular tutor--you know, the human being who is in charge of the teaching! .
At McElroy Tutoring, my mission is simple. I seek to offer you one of the the very best educators in the business: me. Not only do I have nearly 20 years and 20,000 hours of tutoring experience under my belt, but I am also a relentless perfectionist and natural communicator who has scored in the 99th percentile on every test that I teach.
Because I believe strongly in my abilities, and trust that you will be satisfied with my services, you are never required to pay for more than one lesson at a time. However, if you do decide to pay in advance, I offer some of the best bulk discounts in the industry (up to 25 percent). You’ll be amazed at what a difference you’ll see, even after just one lesson.
Please remember that 15-minute phone consultations with me are always free. I promise to answer any questions you may have as best as I can. I look forward to hearing from you!
