StudyPoint, a leading provider of private in-home SAT tutoring and ACT tutoring, reached a milestone this August, enrolling its 12,000th family since the company's inception in 1999.
Despite challenging economic times, parents continue to invest in educational services for their children. "Our families choose us because of our quality educational programming and personalized, one-to-one instruction," says Rich Enos, CEO and co-founder of StudyPoint.
Enos attributes his customers' satisfaction to "a fantastic team of instructors who get great results from their students." Unlike classroom or small-group instruction, StudyPoint tutoring focuses on each student's strengths and weaknesses, and provides tutoring in the convenience of the child's own home. With the undivided attention of a tutor, students are more engaged and more accountable for homework and practice tests. They also tend to be more comfortable asking questions and wrestling with difficult material. All of these factors have been integral to StudyPoint's reaching their 12,000th family.
Since launching in 1999, StudyPoint has opened offices in 23 metropolitan areas across the country. With over 14,000 students, 800 instructors, and roughly 25 full-time employees, the company had over $5 million in annual sales this past school year. Thanks to its ongoing growth, StudyPoint has made the Inc 5,000 list of the fastest growing companies in America for the last four years-a huge achievement in this trying economy.
Enos feels StudyPoint continues to be successful because "everything we do is personalized: personalized, one-to-one instruction, dedicated program management by a single point of contact, and educational technology that creates homework assignments tailored to the student's specific needs." He is optimistic that StudyPoint's philosophy, work ethic, and commitment to its students will continue to make it a national leader in the tutoring industry.
