ABOUT HOMEWORK HELPERS
My story starts very similar to those of the many students that I see here everyday.
Like the students that come to Homework Helpers, my sisters and I grew up working with tutors for help with our homework. For the aspiring pediatrician, ironically, I was tutored in math. Our family had tutors over a few times a week to help us, but, over time, I realized how pivotal those educators were in my life. They became part of my family. Even at a young age, I quickly recognized how tutoring could be such an instrumental tool in helping kids not only get by in school, but flourish as individuals. Reflecting on my childhood, I realized that the way I needed to help kids reach their fullest potential was by creating a company that mirrored my own tutoring experiences.
In 2011 and at just 24 years old, I abandoned my dream of becoming a pediatrician in pursuit of a new one that would help others fulfill their own dreams. Founded on the premise that tutoring is more than a one-size-fits-all industry, Homework Helpers is a company that meets every student’s unique set of needs and learning styles. My goal has always been to help students reach their goals in more personalized ways, regardless of grade, subject, or ability.
But we wanted to do more than be your average tutoring center. Long Valley is an area that embodies family, and students need a place that is their home away from home. When parents bring their kids to Homework Helpers, we wanted to make sure that students could experience the comfort and security of learning right at home. So we did just that--our business is literally situated in a historic Long Valley house, where we bridge quality education with the comforts of home. Families can see by the way we design our business, provide dinner and beverages to our students and staff, and encourage the community that we aren’t just a business--we are a second family.
Even with the onset of challenges, our business continues to grow and thrive because of the love, dedication, and familial relationships we have fostered at Homework Helpers Tutoring. Our burgeoning business is now local, national, and global, and offers more services that allow for in-center, virtual, and at-home instruction.
We’ve come a long way, but our mission remains the same: we will always be your second home that helps your students feel loved and supported educationally as well as socially. We will consistently walk alongside you to help your student aim high and succeed--even if it’s not as a pediatrician.
