BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT: Where Academics and Safety Come First

Jo Anne Disney

Arcadia –

I had the pleasure of meeting Joseph Smith, the owner of one of the newest businesses in Arcadia. Tutor Doctor opened for business this past March and now employs 10 tutors.

Tutor Doctor offers tutoring in any subject for children from K through 12 grades. The safety of children is their number one concern. So all employees go through extensive background checks and must provide personal and professional references for further screening.

I asked Mr. Smith what makes Tutor Doctor stand out from other tutoring businesses. He explained that at Tutor Doctor they believe that it is important to be passionate about students and learning. Therefore, to assist parents and students, he offers affordable prices and discounts for tutoring packages.

Also, at Tutor Doctor, they “believe that everyone can learn.” That is why they offer personalized programs with one-on-one learning at home. This concept improves confidence as well as study and organizational skills. Then, grades begin to improve.

It seems Tutor Doctor is one of the best kept secrets in Arcadia. And, with the start of a new academic year fast approaching, Tutor Doctor can provide your student with the extra help they may need. Tutor Doctor is located at 615 Las Tunas Drive, Unit L, Arcadia, CA  91007. The office is on the second floor. Consultations are free. Discounts offered.
