Our company's history:
M & M began as a shared effort between two passionate educators who desired to see their influence extend beyond the four walls of their classrooms. In almost 30 years combined, Jametra (Hinton) and Mariama (Moody)
experienced great success as classroom teachers by establishing positive relationships with students and parents, and incorporating their in-depth knowledge of curriculum and cognitive development. As the years progressed, both teachers grew increasingly concerned about the lack of individualized attention that students received, and the need for more curriculum and resources developed by teachers who were actually in the trenches.
In August 2014, Jametra and Mariama decided to join forces to address their growing concerns, and began M & M Educational Group (formerly M & M Math Tutoring Service). Within a year and a half of being in business, M & M grew from a family of two tutors and a few clients, to 24 tutors and over one hundred clients; developed curriculum resources for local youth organizations; and were honored to partner with a local private school.
Jametra and Mariama are humbled by the success that M & M has experienced thus far, and are looking forward
to what the future holds for them and M & M!
WHY should you choose M & M?:
1. WE ARE EDUCATORS: Because our founders (and many of our tutors) are veteran teachers, we are sincerely invested in our schools and communities. (Check out the LIST OF SCHOOLS that our students have attended!) Also for this reason, we hand-select and train our tutors to uphold the same standards that our founders used in their classroom.
2. FLEXIBILITY: We can meet in your home, a library, or any other convenient location-including online. We have tutors that are available any day or time during the week-just let us know what works best with your schedule. We can adjust your number of sessions based on your child's progress. If you need to switch subjects, meet more/less often, or meet individually/with a group, we will adjust accordingly.
3. Each child learns differently...so we work with each child differently. We use a combination of traditional and modern approaches to learning, and specifically target what you or your child needs to improve.
4. You are not a number at M&M...you are a part of our family. We personally match each client with the most qualified tutor to meet his/her individual needs. And we do our best to celebrate each client's successes in and out of the classroom!
