About the Owner

Celena Turney

Owner Celena TurneyThe local office is owned and led by Celena Turney, a parent, non-profit leader, and former educator and instructional coach. In her work with learners of all ages -- whether at museums or arboreta, in the classroom, in after school programs, or on the stage -- she understands how to inspire curiosity, provoke the imagination, and instill a sense of determination and perseverance. As Director of Teaching & Learning at Tutor Doctor Palo Alto, she looks for tutors and academic coaches who bring this philosophy to life!

She is passionate about empowering students of all ages to realize their creative gifts and talents. Helping students maximize their potential through the work of Tutor Doctor’s tutoring and coaching services, is her number one goal.

Giving back to the community is important to her. Currently, she has projects with Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga, Luna Dance Institute in Berkeley, and volunteers her time in the school districts she serves. She is a member of the Chamber of Commerce in Los Altos and Palo Alto.
