ABOUT US

Finding the best in every student

Our mission at Next Door Tutors is simple: help students actualize their academic goals by providing a tutoring program tailored to their unique learning style. We believe in a "Near-Peer" model that matches high school students with highly qualified college students. This enables our tutors to empathize with your student's workload and academic environment while enabling them to reach higher levels of academic achievement. By actively fostering sincere, supportive relationships, our tutors ensure that students feel confident enough to confront their challenges head-on and overcome any obstacles in their way. Next Door Tutors' greatest asset is our ability to instill values in students that will serve them both inside and outside the walls of academic institutions. Hard work, integrity, and drive are the fundamental characteristics of success, and our tutors are trained to nurture these attributes in each student.
