Tutored by Teachers Club 
Is your child in need of academic assistance? Who better to step in than a teacher? 
Star Heights “Tutored by Teachers Club” is a team of highly qualified, strongly committed, self-motivated teachers who are passionate about student’s academic success, experienced in all subjects from grades K through 8. The “Tutored by Teachers Club” is a homework club that runs week nights helping elementary and middle school kids with their homework. We provide transportation from school to Star Heights Recreation Center. We start by having a 15 to 20 minute window between the time school gets out to when homework time begins. During this break the children can relax, have a snack and then re-focus on their school work without feeling burned out.
