In addition to our Director, j&R Tutoring Academy employs several Tutoring Associates. These outstanding associates are former elementary school teachers who possess an Indiana Teaching License, Master Degrees in education, and many years of teaching experience.

We strongly believe in the importance of having instructors who know how to work with children, how to encourage them, and when to let them work independently. Our Tutoring Associates are also parents and grandparents.

Your children are important to us and we want to assure you that they will learn from highly qualified instructors.
