March 20, 2017 Mentorship Mondays

Now, I love mentoring young entrepreneurs”, said Richard Branson of his earliest mentor. Now one of the most successful businessmen of all-time, Branson doesn’t think he could have ever done it without the aid of Freddie Laker. Because Laker offered Branson advice and guidance at a time when he needed it, Branson was able to develop his business and understand which risks were worth taking.
Mentorship is just an important a part of what we do at TutorBright as tutoring. We’re more than a tutoring service, and in addition to giving students homework help with their science and math questions, we give them mentorship in all aspects of life. Our Tutor-Mentors are problem solvers, dedicated to helping students with challenges in their academic lives as well as their social lives.
