Our Story

How the company started:


Teachers as Tutors began as a dream of a special education teacher. She realized that meeting kids where they were in the way they needed to be met would not always happen in the classroom setting. Working with student’s one-on-one was the solution. So, starting a tutoring company in her daughter's office complex was the answer to a prayer!


We are more than just a tutoring service!


When this company started, all of our tutors had been special education teachrs in public schools. Because of that, parents began asking the tutors advice on how to preceed with their child's Individualized Education Plans. Consequently, meetings were set between parents and the tut...

Individualized education is not only for students in Special Ed, it's for everyone! The team here at Teachers As Tutors understands that every student learns best in a different way.

From Lori Spencer....

I started this company in 2017 after almost 19 years in public education working with students with special needs. As a special education teacher I never felt like I was truly helping children in the way they deserved to be helped. There were just too many obstacles in the way. Some of these obstacles were large class sizes, paperwork limiting the time with my students, and limited staff. It was frustrating and I became unhappy. I had a dream to be able to work with a student one-on-one, focusing on his/her individualized needs; tailoring a plan just right for the student. There is nothing like seeing that aha moment in a child's eye!


Teachers as Tutors has grown and we have many wonderful ne...
