With the “indefinite” closures of schools, one local teachers’ company is saving the day for hundreds of families around the area.

Teacher Time To Go is a “travel to you” tutoring service providing individualized tutoring, homework help, test prep, and executive functioning services K-12th grade.

Started by Jennifer Shemtob, a teacher in the Lower Merion School District at Gladwyne Elementary School, Shemtob’s team is providing families with one-on-one support to help through these uncharted times.

Her team of 55+ tutors are all certified teachers in their specific subject area.

The team is trained in Teacher Time To Go organizational approach which includes using data from baseline assessments, individual goal setting meetings, communicating with student’s current teachers, and providing feedback to meet the needs of the students, all while providing fun, meaningful, and engaging lessons.

Shemtob “meets” with every family, identifies student need, puts a plan in place, and then matches the family with a tutor on her team based on best fit.

Her plan has proven successful as she has grown her local business from a few families to now hundreds of students across the area.

During these unprecedented times, as with a majority of small business across the state, Teacher Time To Go has shifted their model from a “travel to you” approach to a “meet with you” remote learning opportunity.

“Together, we decide frequency, duration, and preferred virtual platform to use and ensure that students are feeling confident and motivated during this extremely uncharted time,” Shemtob said.

“Our tutors are the heart and soul of what we do.  Their creativity, enthusiasm, and determination are what makes this whole system work.”

Shemtob recently hired a Director of Recruitment to handle the overflow of business and to ensure that all hands are on deck.

Victoria Seidman is assisting in the creation of resources and materials for the tutors, developing training platforms, and handling the social media and marketing for the company.

Shemtob noted that Victoria’s addition to the team is helping tremendously and she is excited for their shared success together.

Teacher Time To Go is currently accepting new families that are interested in support during this time.  You can schedule your free consultation phone call today by calling 610-212-9440 or by visiting their website at www.teachertimetogo.com .
