About Tutor A Team, LLC

hired 47 times on Thumbtack

We provide quality in-home, one-on-one tutoring for a wide variety of subjects and ages. Our tutors are carefully selected to maximize the optimum instructional relationship between the student and the tutor. We emphasize the team concept in that all parties in the tutoring process must be involved -- parents, student, tutor, and classroom teacher -- in order to obtain the best results.

There's a reason we keep winning awards: the Virginian-Pilot's Best of Chesapeake for 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and now 2015! Quite simply, we offer the very best in-home tutoring in Tidewater! We tutor students in all grades and for all subjects in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Portsmouth, and Suffolk, and now Elizabeth City.

We tutor students from kindergarten through 12th grade, in all subjects, and we do it in your home (or if you prefer, the local library). We also tutor some college students and adults. Our tutoring is always one-on-one!

We use a TEAM approach to tutoring. The members of the team are:

- the student
- the parent(s) or grandparent(s)
- the tutor
- the classroom teacher

Working together, our teams consistently obtain amazing results!

Tutor A Team is not a franchise. We are locally-owned and operate only within Southside Hampton Roads and Elizabeth City, NC. All tutoring is done by our contracted staff of 66 wonderful tutors, each personally chosen for his or her expertise in a well-defined subject area. All of our tutors are passionate about their students' success!

We meet with every family prior to tutoring in order to assess your child's needs and determine the best possible fit for a tutor. There is no cost for this initial meeting, and we do not make families sign contracts.

    My daughter's grades are better and she has more confidence in geometry,I would highly recommend tutor A team!

  • 5/5 stars

    We came to Tutor A team when our 16 year old son was failing math analysis. Jim was so helpful! He came to our home and met with us and our son. He spoke with our son to get a feel for which if his tutors would work well with him. He hit the nail on the head! Jacob was a perfect fit! Our main goal was to have our son pass his class for the year, which he did. Our only regret was we should have started earlier!

    The tutors were wonderful and really helped our daughter with her math difficulties. They were personable, very knowledgeable, and they had a real ability to connect with her. We were very pleased.

    I was disappointed with the 2 stars you gave Tutor A Team for our work. That is the only review we have received that low. Could you please review and see if that can be improved. You can see the other reviews that are all 5 stars.

    thank you,

    Jim Waldman and Tutor A Team is a phenomenal resource for any parent. His personal interview with the parents and the children allows him to select just the right tutor for each child or family. I found the tutor he selected for my children to possess all the qualities necessary for our unique situation. We set goals for our kids and with the help of Jim Waldman and Tutor A Team we met those goals for each of my kids. I appreciate his attention to detail and his personal involvement in the entire process as well as his commitment to excellence.

    Jim Waldman's philosophy regarding a quality tutoring program is
    exactly the template I would have used to set up my own company after
    39 years with Chesapeake Public Schools, 33 of them as an
    administrator in the school system. Read the web page to understand
    how this model provides outstanding support for the student, parent,
    tutor and teacher. Helping students to achieve is the main goal of
    the company and is the only focus of the Tutor A Team business. We
    look forward to serving all students to the best of our ability.

    I have been employed as a tutor with Jim Waldman since Tutor A Team's inception. He is an honest, hardworking company president, who really cares about providing individual help for students of all ages. He personally screens all his clients, and does his best to make sure the tutors assigned to them are appropriate for the subject area that needs to be improved. I wouldn't work for anyone else.

    Thanks Betsy, you and Randy have been that anchor that a new company needs to success. Tutor A Team has now furnished tutoring assistance to about 250 families in the Tidewater region. Many thanks to you folks and all of the wonderful tutors that we have.

    Thanks again, jim

    Jim and his team of tutors are excellent to work with. Jim found just the right Math tutor for me to pass my college math classes. Having been out of school for many years, I was more than just a little nervous about being back in the classroom. The one-on-one tutoring that was convenient to my schedule was perfect. Thanks Jim and the whole A++Team.

Question and answer

Q. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A. We begin with an interview with the student's family, including the student. Our goal is to completely assess the area of need and match each student with the ideal tutor -- someone who is a good fit personally and professionally. Once the tutoring begins, our tutors and families provide us with ongoing feedback to ensure a high-quality result. We don't simply assign tutors and hope for the best. We follow up regularly to make sure every student is making progress.

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Yes, all of our tutors are licensed and as such have to maintain their education and developments in the industry.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. Nothing complicated about our pricing, we charge by the hour or portion of an hour with a minimum of one hour at each session. We have no extras, assessments, registration fees, or testing costs.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I started Tutor A Team after 40+ years in education at many levels and realized that the current education system is not able to give individual attention to 20-30+ students in a particular class...all students are not the same and some need special attention that even the parents cannot provide. We fill in the gaps when necessary and we know our system works!

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. One-on-one in home tutoring is the only thing that we do! However, we've worked with students of all ages and abilities. K-12, college, even adults. Gifted and special education. Remediation and enrichment. We even tutored a couple of grandparents looking to learn American Sign Language so they could Skype with their deaf grandson. Our goal is to make every one of our clients happy and successful.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. We are proud of all the work that we do, and we have many success stories. Please read our testimonials on our website and talk to us prior to making a decision.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Be sure to have an in-home interview that includes the student prior to any tutoring. Ask how a tutor will ensure a personalized approach that meets your child's individual academic needs.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. We started this company in 2010 with the purpose of helping parents with the education of their children. We insist on making it work and we have a follow up procedure that reviews what happens at every tutoring session. We pay the tutors and you don't become involved in the direct payment of the tutors; your relationship with the tutor is all about your student.
