The Valencia Tutors Learning Center Difference
Tutoring is how Valencia Tutors Learning Center started! Our fundamental techniques, and commitment to hiring the best teachers has created a program with a results oriented emphasis. VTLC does not believe in long-term contracts and has built a program dedicated to the individual needs of each student. We work collaboratively with a student’s parents, teachers and counselors in defining approaches which directly impact success. VTLC has built a positive reputation in our community, enabling unparalleled communication with the professionals directly involved in your student’s education.
Simply put, our teachers are very well qualified. Our teachers have been selected for their ability to teach, their experience in the schools, their ability to communicate with families and their formal educations. Our teachers are also chosen for their aptitude to connect with students. All of our teachers have a minimum of a four year degree, in their subject area, and almost ALL of our teachers have a graduate level degree and credential. The average tenure of the teachers at VTLC is seven years. Our teachers stay because they believe in the integrity of the program. In fact, many of our teachers are full-time, which is extremely unusual for an after school learning program. Providing opportunities for our teachers, naturally translates into opportunities for our students.
