Meet the Tutor Doctor mason owner
My name is Nathan Sernoffsky. I am the owner of Tutor Doctor Mason. I live in Mason with my wife of 24 years and our 3 children, ages 16, 13, and 7. The two older children are boys and the youngest is a girl. All three kids are in Mason Schools.
I came to Ohio to attend the University of Dayton where I met my wife. We got married, bought a house in Dayton, and worked our way through school. We both graduated from UD in 1999, her with an MBA, me with a BA in International Studies. I went on to earn my MBA in 2004 from Xavier University.
Most of my time outside of this business is centered around my kids. I am one of the Assistant Scoutmasters and the Popcorn Kernel in Troop 500 at St. Susanna. My boys are both Life Scouts and plan to get their Eagle Scout rank this year. We have a lot of fun camping and volunteering. My boys are turning into great leaders. My daughter is a Brownie in Girl Scouts where she is just beginning her Scouting journey.
In addition to Scouting, all three of my kids play lacrosse. My oldest son plays for the Mason High School Team. I am involved there too as the Treasurer for the Mason High School Boys Lacrosse Booster Club. My two younger kids play for the Mason Youth Lacrosse Club.
And then there is running. Both of my boys run Cross Country for Mason, the older for Mason High School, and the younger son for Mason Middle School.
As a family, we love the outdoors. We run a few 5K’s every year. We have season passes to Kings Island. Our vacations usually center around hiking or the beach or both.
My other passion is sailing. I have Catalina 25 sailboat named after my grandmother, Millie. We belong to the Rocky Fork Sailing Club in Hillsboro, OH. My younger son is my trusty first mate. Together, we have won 2 and placed second in 2 of the club sailing regattas this year.
I started Tutor Doctor Mason for several reasons. First, I wanted to do something that would help people. Offering tutoring fills a real need in our community. We have great schools in our area, but they just cannot meet the learning needs of every student for a variety of reasons. And then there are areas of learning that the schools simply do not offer, such as ACT Test Prep. The second reason is that I love teaching and learning. I taught part-time at Sinclair Community College in Mason for about 5 years. It was the most fulfilling work I have ever done.
