Our Tutors


The level of quality tutors that TKN provides to families across the country is second to none. Some of the words families use to describe TKN tutors are:

  1. Reliable: Tutors show up when scheduled, providing accurate and personalized instruction.
  2. Focused: Tutors help parents and students set realistic goals and then work diligently with each student to achieve those goals.
  3. Flexible: Tutors work patiently and creatively to find ways to communicate difficult information without wearing out the student or demanding compliance in a way that fails the student.

Our tutors excel in interpersonal communication, work only in their areas of expertise, and maintain the highest level of ethical standards as they help your student. To achieve this level of excellence, TKN takes every candidate through a rigorous selection process that includes background checks, professional referrals, and character references, followed by multiple rounds of interviews and testing of communication and educational skills. Only then do we extend an invitation to those professionals who stand out as positive role models in their communities, exhibit a passion for education, and commit to investing in students.

TKN’s intensive training program takes each new tutor through Derek Moore’s time-tested methods and mindsets for student success. We also invest in ongoing tutor development in response to an ever-changing educational landscape that demands more from students and their support team. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that our tutors are fully equipped with the tools they need to guide your student to success.

Our tutors excel at interpersonal communication and work only in their area of expertise.
