So Much Happening!

SUMMER 2012 at SUCCESS! TUTORING

Well, it's been a while since I've last posted something on our blog other than Vicky updating the calendar of family-oriented events in the local area.

We've had so much happening so quickly recently that I just had to take some time to post an update of some of the latest happenings.

First of all, we've moved!  Yes, that's right.  Success! Tutoring is now on the ground floor (street level) at the corner of Verdugo Avenue and Parish Street, right across from the new John Burroughs' Memorial Field.  We're in the same building we've always been, but now there are no stairs to climb.  And we're much more visible!  We've had a number of people stop by to ask about our services and they've been very surprised that we've been here for over 10 years!  They never knew we were here.  This is definitely a testimonial to the old real estate adage: Location, Location, Location!

Below is a pictures of our new location front entrance and our new reception area:



And of course, what would our tutoring center be without tutoring stations for our tutors to work with their students:

In addition to our tutoring stations, we now have a small seminar / meeting room area in which we've already had two very successful seminars.  One was a free College Financial Aid seminar delivered by a certified College Tuition Advisor, Michael Budnick.  The successes from the parents that attended were all absolutely rave!


Now, if you missed the workshop and wished you had been able to make it -- you're in luck!  We have another one scheduled for this coming Saturday, April 28th from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  There is very limited seating so please call Vicky right away to confirm your attendance if you'd like to go.

In addition to the Free College Financial Aid workshop, we have also had a Phonics Workshop for 5 to 7 year olds.  They and their parents had a blast!



Well, all of the above is related to our move.  But as I said, there is so much that has happened recently!

We've worked out our program for this summer, 2012.  How would you like for your child to not forget what they learned all school year during the summer but to review their math and language arts so that they are better prepared for the next school year!  We've developed a very economical way to do just that -- with small-group workshops scheduled throughtout the summer.  Again, we have very limited space and seating so if you're interested, call Vicky right away at (818) 557-7379 and ask about our Early Signup Special.

How about having your child work with a tutor to address any subject he or she may have had trouble with during the regular school year?  Summer is the perfect time to do just that!  No other classes, homework or other academic demands other than focusing on that specific subject so that your child can accelerate, progress and increase his or her self-confidence in that subject.  They would start the next school year so much better prepared.  Below is a flyer for the summer 2012 at Success! Tutoring.


Well, I could probably go on and on with some of the other latest developments but that's all I'm going to post today. 

Don't forget to let others know about our services, our blog and our summer program.

Thank you,

Armando and Vicky Salcido

City of Burbank Honors Success Tutoring



This acknowledgement is for 10 years of business in the City of Burbank, issued and signed by the Mayor of Burbank, The Honorable Jess Talamantes. "Your services definitely make a difference in the lives of students and are contributing greatly to our community."


In honor of this recognition, Success! Tutoring is celebrating by offering a 10-year anniversary special during the month of August, 2011. Call our office today for details. (818) 557-7379 or email: info@success-tutoring.com.


Thank you Mayor Talamantes. We would also like to thank the many parents, families, teachers, and counselors that have entrusted us with the academic advancement of their children and students. Their referrals have helped to spread the word about our services.


Additionally, we would not have been able to achieve this milestone without the best academic tutors around. Our tutors, consisting of current and retired teachers, are always in demand. With many years of classroom experience and one-to-one tutoring, they really care about their students and know how to help them learn.


We are extremely honored to have received this acknowledgement from the City of Burbank.


Sincerely,


Vicky and Armando Salcido

What’s New at Success! Tutoring


1. Success! Tutoring now has Teen Seminars based on the book, “Success for Teens”. You can find information about the book at http://www.successfoundation.org/ . Our very own Armando Salcido started delivery of the seminars last month. The first chapter covered was titled: “Little Things Matter”. All of the students who attended the seminar loved it, wrote a success story and wanted to come to the next one. Below are a few excerpts from the material they covered.



“I learned that you need to do the right thing even if you don’t want to.”



“I feel that no matter what people think of you.. do what you think is right. Do not slack off, do your best and try hard.”



"Everything we do has an effect on our lives some minor and some major….I learned that everyone has a choice in life and that what they cause or do has an effect.”



The date of the next seminar is Saturday, April 2 from 10 am to 12 noon. The next chapter to be covered is titled: Attitude is Everything.



The seminars cover time-tested principles for excelling in all areas of life such as time management, goal-setting, self-esteem, dream-building, self-motivation, habits, and purpose. As you may recall from your initial consultation, Armando is very good at communicating with students.



If you’d like your child to attend the next seminar, call right away as we like to keep the group small to encourage participation. The cost for the two hour seminar is the same as one tutoring hour. (Yes, you can use hours you may have on account.)



2. Success! Tutoring has recently started delivering regular art classes by Randall Williams, a very well known local artist who has had his art exhibits in the Midwest as well as both the East and West Coast. His artwork has been featured in many news articles, televised news and in television programs as far away as Japan and England.



After receiving his Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Fine Arts, Randall worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, worked as a stain-glass artist, became art director at two of L.A’s largest photography labs and owned his own art gallery for six years. Randall is also very active in the Burbank community. Just last week he painted a mural for Providencia Elementary school and regularly teaches art at the local Burbank elementary schools. He was the President of the Burbank Art Association as well as other associations.



So far at Success! Tutoring, he has taught classes in pastel, acrylic, drawing, charcoal and air brush. The students love him!



Private lessons and group lessons are available. Call for details!
