3 Reasons to Pay Attention to the Quincy Tutor Network in 2014

It has been almost six months since we crashed our national tutor network, and losing everything was devastating.  Instead of giving up, I used this experience as an opportunity to examine my life’s work and refocus my time by helping students on the South Shore.  Taking an opportunity to examine this “failure” also provided me with perspective that I can share with my students.  The adaptation of the Quincy Tutor Network is a great example of persistence, a trait that many students need to develop.2014 has bigger things in store, three of which I want to share with you today.  I am excited about our growth potential, which has a direct correlation with how much we can reinvest back into the community.  Please visit our blog regularly, we are excited to share our progress with you.

 

We are moving!

On January 1st 2014,  we will be moving into the Quincy Center for Innovation located at 180 Old Colony Ave.  Carving out a space in the innovation center will provide our team with a great opportunity to contribute to the exciting things happening in Quincy.  Transitioning to the QCI will provide our team with the necessary space to conduct meetings, meeting with students, and assess the academic needs in Quincy.

We are getting social!

The Quincy Tutor Network has a strong presence on Facebook and Twitter, but we are stepping up this year. We will be engaging Quincy residents, and using social media to identify ways the QTN can give back to the community. We are starting this initiative right away, and are excited to serve on the social media panel that Opportunity Quincy is hosting.

Our team is growing!

Paul Bowen has joined our team as COO and Director of Community Partnerships.  Paul served as the Founding Director of the Trinity Education for Excellence Program, and has a knack for developing innovative programs.  Please connect with Paul today if you are interested in developing a partnership with the QTN. 2014 is going to be an excited year, and we’re glad that you are coming along for the ride.  If we can help your student achieve their academic goals, please submit your email below.  We are excited to give back, and look forward to your feedback.
