About this pro

How does your service stand out?

I developed the A+ Club by working with under-performing students who wanted to do better in school. Our approach is simple and powerful: when students articulate their goals and responsibilities, they are more likely to fulfill them. We engage students in goal-setting, articulation, reminder, and problem solving.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The highest compliment we receive is when parents tell us they are no longer arguing with their kids about homework and grades. When kids build academic ownership, they gain confidence, their grades go up, and their parents are not just relieved, but happy!

    Very Satisfied with Michael's teaching.
    Michael did an excellent job of evaluating my daughter's needs and referred us to good tutors, including himself. My daughter is receiving the help she so needs.

    Mr. Bromley has been very helpful and provided the support we needed when we’re searching for an online tutoring service. The A+ Club helped coordinating our schedules and we are able to find qualified tutor that is reasonably priced and also give us the homework help that we're looking for. Yes, I would recommend their service to others.

    Mr. Bromley is a highly organized individual that uses a variety of tools to help my daughter achieve her goals, study habits and now she is an A student. I like the fact that he listened to the problems my daughter was having and implemented a plan specifically for her issues. Mr. Bromley is extremely motivated, helpful, intelligent, witty and very easy to converse with. My child felt very comfortable speaking with him and his staff who are friendly and forthcoming. You will not find a better educator to guide and assist your child. I would highly recommend him for your tutoring needs.

    My son is a junior in high school and we desperately needed a tutor to help him in AP Calculus. Michael has been a huge help with matching us up with a tutor. Michael listens and fully understands the needs of a student and family struggling in a subject. He took the time and effort to select a tutor that best fit our son's needs and personality. He scheduled an initial "get to know you" session with my son so that they could learn more about my son and to understand his current study and classroom habits, etc. The tutor follows up after each session with feedback on what was covered, what needs more attention and how things are going. So far, so good...and I, as a parent, feel like we are in great hands. I appreciate Michael's attentiveness to our situation. I look forward to seeing my son succeed in this class! I highly recommend A+ Club for Student Success.

    Having a support team has really helped Matt stay on track by turning assignments in timely. It also encourages him to set goals so that he will achieve better grades. Mr. Bromley has been a great mentor and an excellent teacher. Thank you so much.

    Knew how to reach my son. Helped him increase his SAT score by more than 100 points in just a few short sessions. Great program! My son got into his first choice school! Thank you for everything!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
We use the latest technologies, we monitor education developments, and we are always learning from child psychology and behavioral motivation fields. Above all, our teachers put themselves into a state of constant professional and personal improvement that they apply to our students.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Our direct tutoring program starts at $34 / hour. Our monthly support program starts at $135 per month with a $50 setup fee, which covers loading student information into our system and setting up our services for daily academic and parental oversight support.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I fell into teaching after a successful business career. After 10 years teaching high school history, I decided to combine my love for business with my love for teaching kids with the A+ Club!
What types of customers have you worked with?
We can help students improve in specific subjects, but we mostly want to help kids improve as students in general. That's our specialty and what makes us different from the rest.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We love it when our students gain confidence and start performing better in class and at studying. We also love it when our parents are so relieved that their child has gotten effective and affordable help. Recently, a parent wrote to thank us for helping her son build a B average for the first time in high school. She was thrilled by his academic success. And she was equally thrilled that she could now qualified for "good student" car insurance prices!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find someone who is honest, dedicated, organized, consistent and communicates well. Getting initial help is one things, but you want follow-through and full feedback on your child's standing and progress.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
We truly care about our clients.
