Club Z! Tutoring and Test Prep of South Lake County opened for business in September 2017 offering one-on-one and small group tutoring in all subjects, including SAT and ACT test preparation and study skills development. Club Z! also has services and programs to support students of all ages, from Kindergarten readiness through college admissions counseling.
I had the opportunity to speak with Svetlana, the Area Director of Lake County Club Z!, after the South Lake Chamber of Commerce’s recent ribbon-cutting ceremony welcoming ClubZ! into the business community.
THE TABLET: Svetlana, Club Z! is an in-home tutoring service. Do you have any background in the Educational Environment?
SVETLANA: I worked in the Educational Environment in one way or another for years. I worked as a Center Director with Sylvan Learning Center for a long time and loved working with kids, helping them achieve educational success. Club Z! has excellent tools and programs to help accomplish that and they also have a scholarship program for students that work hard. All of which tells me they care about their students and helping them find success in education.
THE TABLET: Where is your business located?
SVETLANA: I work out of my home office. Our tutors go to the homes of our students, so we don’t need a business location. It keeps costs down, and those savings are transferred to the parents of our students.
THE TABLET: Do you live in the area?
Svetlana: My home is just over the Lake County border, in Winter Garden. My family and I spend a lot of time in Lake County, not only for the business but when we go shopping or out to dinner. We love the rolling hills and the beautiful landscape.
THE TABLET: Tell me a little about ClubZ!
SVETLANA: Club Z! In-Home Tutoring works with kids as young as Pre-K. We have a fabulous Pre-K program that comes with a backpack and all the tools necessary for a fun, successful program. Our program goes all the way to SAT/ ACT prep and everything in between. We have proprietary programs, like a writing program, a study skills program and an SAT/ACT program that’s fantastic. Our SAT/ACT program can help students grow their scores by using our Score Booster program and our one on one tutoring approach that is a recipe for success.
THE TABLET: Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers?
SVETLANA: We are very customer friendly and will do what it takes to help a child succeed and hopefully exceed expectations. Our costs are very reasonable and competitive for one on one tutoring. The good thing about using our service is if anything happens with your tutor, we have other excellent, qualified backup tutors so you are not left stranded. We have done the legwork to make sure that tutors are knowledgeable and effective. Since we visit the homes of our students, the parents don’t have to worry about loading everyone into the car and traveling to a tutoring session or hoping that their selected tutor will work out because it was such an effort to find them. If a student is currently tutoring in math and needs to switch to another subject, we will make any changes necessary without an extra cost or any time lost.
Svetlana and her husband Larry intend to continue fostering positive relationships with her local schools and other community organizations that serve students in Lake County.
