HAMPTON -- The greater Seacoast area now offers a unique option for parents and struggling students: affordable, one-on-one tutoring, by qualified teachers, in your home.

Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services, the nation's fastest growing in-home tutoring company, has opened a branch in Hampton. Club Z! provides high quality, individualized tutoring to students in the security of their homes, at times convenient to parents.

According to Gary Annis, owner of the new Seacoast Club Z!, "Tutoring is performed in the student's home in order to provide a comfortable and non-competitive environment for learning. In-home tutoring eliminates the pressure and embarrassment of the classroom setting and allows each student to focus on the lesson at hand."

Annis adds, "Club Z! reaches students more quickly and effectively because tutors give students the individual attention they need, making each child more comfortable, eager, and confident about learning."

Parents also benefit from the convenience of in-home tutoring, according to Annis. Club Z! tutors have flexible schedules and can accommodate working parents. Most tutoring is performed after normal business hours and on weekends. Furthermore, parents are not pressed for time by having to provide transportation for their child to and from a learning center.

The Seacoast Club Z! is locally owned and operated, as are all 300-plus Club Z! franchises throughout the United States. Each franchise employs local teachers and degreed professionals to perform the tutoring services. Club Z! tutors are either state certified, public or private school teachers or degreed professionals with expertise in the area they are tutoring.

Club Z! matches tutors with students based on their individual academic needs and personality. Tutors' teaching styles are highly individualized and tailored specifically to the student. With Club Z!, a student has the same tutor for the entire program, with lessons following the same curriculum the student is learning at school. Tutors do not introduce additional material or require outside work. Students work at their own pace, with most sessions lasting from one to two hours, depending on the age and need of the student.

Club Z! offers tutoring in all core subjects — reading, math, science, computers, language arts and much more. Club Z! also provides tutoring in study skills, SAT, ACT, and other assessment test preparation, as well as specialized services for children with learning disabilities. Club Z! does not require long-term contracts. Parents can end tutoring at any time.
