The Tutoring Collective’s founder and manager, Laurie Marvald, is a Cornell Graduate and attended Columbia Business School. She is an entrepreneur who saw first-hand, through the challenge of raising three sons in NYC, how difficult the school system is to navigate. She realized that guiding students through this landscape, truly does take a village, and with The Tutoring Collective, she created that village. Now in its 15th year, Laurie continues to personally vet and hire highly experienced and caring tutors, ensuring their vast experience with the challenges that students face.
Working with over 12,000 families, The Tutoring Collective has grown primarily through word of mouth from parents who have seen their children’s lives enriched and developed by a unique and connecting relationship with their tutors. The numbers speak for themselves, with huge improvements in their grades, writing skills, reading comprehension, test scores, as well as high admission rates into specialized high schools and top tier universities and graduate programs.
We know that getting the numbers up is only part of the equation; that’s why our fascinating and accomplished tutors share their experiences with students to create a greater bond thereby enhancing the mentor and role model aspect of this relationship. Building up the student’s confidence and developing key organizational and time-management skills are key elements in this process. Our tutors grew up in major metropolitan areas, taking the same tests, and attending prestigious universities. They applied to the same schools and faced the same obstacles as their students; the familiarity and similar experiences are elements that also promote understanding and success.
We are currently working with students from pre-K through high school, plus all college levels as well as graduate school. Every subject, every test prep, every type of enrichment, plus all college process management – All!. Contact us directly to learn more!
