This directory is sponsored by ILLUMII, which is located in Winston-Salem and offers support for families through testing and evaluations, high school and college planning, ACT/SAT test preparation, parent learning workshops, tutoring, coaching, and advising.
Whether you have a child in elementary, middle or high school, we know that often times they need a little extra help when it comes to academics. We have once again updated our list of local tutoring resources to help your child if and when they may need a tutor. If your child has special needs, be sure to also check out our Special Needs Directory for additional services.
Please note that many of these listings are recommendations from our readers. Be sure do to your homework (no pun intended!) and research these tutors prior to enlisting their services.
Below are two lists. One is for tutoring services where you will find an actual business or venue, and some services have enough tutors to serve more than one student at a time. The second list is for private tutors. These are individuals who may work out of their homes or are available to come to your home. If you have a service or private tutor to add, please email Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com. This directory can be updated at any time. This list will always be available to you on our Directories Page.
