Meet Our tutors!


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 new teachers that have joined our staff. These teachers share my dream of helping the individual learner. It's an honor to work among so many talented teachers/tutors! We now tutor students in special and regular education; in all subjects and grades! Since Covid-19, we can tutor online, and yes we still tutor in  our Alpharetta Office! Further, we can tutor In your home offering one-on-one assistance that is convenient for your family. Earlier this year we even developed learning pods for digital learners offering students and their parents a certified teacher to navigate through the learning day at home. I can't say enough how proud I am of this company! Did I say we have also become advocates that can actually go into IEP meetings with you to make sure your child receives the best plan available? Please call and schedule an appointment with one of our tutors today!
