In this TutorBright video, Jim Judgey, VP of TutorBright and Geoff Guenther, Lead Curriculum and Assessment Designer, discuss why the company has partnered with the Ronald McDonald House.
TutorBright is revolutionizing the way people think about tutoring, and now they’ve formed an ideal union with the Ronald McDonald House Charities. In this video, Jim Hudgey (TutorBright Vice President) and Geoff Guenther (lead curriculum designer) explain why they feel the move creates the ideal partnership. The Ronald McDonald House has always been dedicated to helping children so the pairing of these two companies seems bound to yield great results. There are 357 Ronald McDonald House locations in more than 60 countries. They help families with sick ill children, offer grants to worthy non-profit organizations and provide scholarships for children. When one considers the natures of these two companies it becomes clear why each is so excited about this new union.
Geoff explains how TutorBright was able to design fun and exciting activities, that add an entertaining element to learning. TutorBright was responsible for planning different aspects of the Ronald McDonald House’s summer camp and they focused upon entertaining the children as they taught them. Geoff explains how some of the learning activities even get a little messy which is ideal when attempting to keep the attention of children.
There were cooking activities which the children only see as entertainment, but they teach about math and measuring. While watching the video, it becomes evident why TutorBright is such an effective system. Both Geoff and Jim display an almost palpable enthusiasm about helping children learn. This excitement about education is what separates TutorBright instructors from others, and it’s the key to our success.
TutorBright is also affiliated with the Ronald McDonald House classroom, which emphasizes education. They’ll provide teachers and principals with the same effective tools with which they provide their own instructors. The Ronald McDonald house provides shelter for the families of sick children who must travel for treatment. Many times, these ill children have siblings who are also missing school, but they can continue their education away from home. By teaming with TutorBright, the classroom can become an innovative place for children to learn until they return home. The Ronald McDonald House has many partners, and they help lots of other non-profit organizations succeed. However, their partnership with Sunny’s company is one of the most practical unions formed by the noteworthy charity. Now families of ill children have one less worry, when they travel to get treatment for their children. The instructors are also mentors to the children which is why the program has garnered such success. They provide someone positive for the children to admire, and that positivity can inspire hope in kids.
