We’ve found that when it’s a one-on-one setting in a comfortable surrounding for the student and for the parent, accountability is maximized.

What do Billy Graham, Randy Travis, and Herman Lay (the founder of Frito-Lay) have in common? They were all born in Charlotte, North Carolina and are known for their integrity, creativity, and business savvy. Study Sparkz wasn’t born here, but they bring the same elements of expertise to their craft – the sparking of young minds – and their success promises to be as evident in Charlotte as it already is in Boston, Baltimore, Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Raleigh.
The (east) coast is clear for the Study Sparkz method of tutoring. It was birthed from the need to offer tutoring services that are effective for not only the K-12 students, but also for their parents. Study Sparkz found that traditional methods of tutoring services, either in after-school classroom settings or in tutor-locating companies were not delivering on their promises.
“We wanted to bring our tutors into the home,” says Kelly Del Rossi, the Charlotte Study Sparkz Director. “We’ve found that when it’s a one-on-one setting in a comfortable surrounding for the student and for the parent, accountability is maximized.”
The Study Sparkz method is highlighted by a tutor match system that ensures the right student/tutor combination. They interview and test their prospective students as much as they interview and test their prospective tutors. The result is not only in their understanding of the abilities of the student and of the tutor, but also of the motivational factors involved in learning. And this is just the beginning of their team effort. Kelly explains:
“Our Counselors gather information from the students and from the parents. Then we assign a liaison to contact the student’s school teachers to gather feedback and set goals on how we can help the student meet their school requirements. And then we ask ourselves…which one of our tutors will get the most out of the student? Who has the expertise in not only the subject matter, but also for inspiring the student to achieve their goals? We monitor the individual programs and report to the students, to their teachers, to their tutors and to their parents. Everyone is in the loop and everyone plays a part in the student’s success.”
The Study Sparkz tutoring method works because of its design and because of their dedicated staff of professionals who strive to maximize their efforts for the student. It’s a proven model and one we await with expectation as they open their doors to the young minds of Charlotte. In the immortal words of Billy Graham, “Only those who want everything done for them are bored.” At Study Sparkz, no one, including the student, gets bored.
