Meet the Team At Tutor Doctor Gateway and East Mesa
Bill and Kim Rohr, Owners
We live in the beautiful community of Eastmark and have three children. Our daughter has struggled academically since Kindergarten, which was the first time we found out she was behind. At first we thought she was doing really well in school, as she was far ahead in comparison to where our oldest son was at her age. But with academics changing drastically over the years, we learned she was way behind. We made the tough decision to hold her back in Kindergarten hoping this would help to fill in the missing educational foundations, help increase her confidence and allow her to catch up to her peers. Unfortunately she continued to fall further and further behind. As parents our hearts broke as we watched her struggle with homework, her confidence continue to fall and she was beginning to say she no longer wanted to go to school. Our daughter has always enjoyed school, she strives to be a teacher one day, so to see her in this state was very discouraging. Our daughter was diagnosed with a learning disability in reading and math and placed on an IEP at the end of her 2nd grade year. We felt extremely fortunate to have amazing support from her teacher and the special education teacher, but in a large school setting there is only so much assistance that can be provided on a one to one basis. As busy working parents, we did not know where to turn or how to help her with her homework and fill in the missing building blocks so that our daughter could have academic success. We knew we needed to get her assistance before she fell further behind. That is when we found Tutor Doctor and our eyes were wide open at the opportunity to be able to help our daughter in a way that would change her life! But even better we saw a way we could help make a difference in other students’ and parents’ lives as well.
