The first Education Center, located in Wilmington, made it easy for students in northern New Castle County to receive 1-on-1 tutoring and education services outside of their home or school. Now, Newark, Pike Creek, and southern New Castle County students have a closer Center to go to as well.
“Students from Hockessin, lower New Castle County and Eastern Maryland are now able to keep “drive time” to a minimum, making kids — and their parents — very happy,” explains Back to Basics’ Director Beverly Stewart, M.Ed. “We still tutor in homes and schools but not everyone wants those options.”
Since opening doors in August of 2011, the Newark Education Center has become the “go-to” site for 1-on-1 tutoring in Newark and the surrounding areas. Hundreds of tutoring hours have been logged at the site and dozens of students have been helped to improve grades and confidence, standardized test scores, and to participate in educational enrichment activities. Adults are also tutored at that Center, 1-on-1.
Back to Basics’ Newark location is available for year round 1-on-1 tutoring, Monday through Friday. During the school year, hours are 3:15 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. and summer hours are 7:00 a.m. – 7:45 p.m. Back to Basics’ Wilmington location is open 7 days/week from 8:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m.
Back to Basics expansion is the most recent step toward the ultimate goal of remaining as accessible as possible for all students — regardless of location. In addition to the two Centers, Back to Basics’ tutors will also travel to a student’s home, office, or school. This unique option is a crucial factor in the company’s longevity; the company has been an educational mainstay in the tri-state area since 1985 for children and adults in over 60 subjects.
