BUSINESS: College Nannies and Tutors
Edmond’s College Nannies and
Tutors has been a community fixture since 2010. Owner Karin Dallas has built
the company’s reputation on reliability, flexibility and excellent customer
service. Her approach is simple: meet with families, identify their needs and
match them with the best available assistance.
“I was inspired to bring the
College Nannies & Tutors franchise to Edmond because, as a working mom of
an elementary-aged child, I saw a definite gap in qualified, certified, professional
in-home childcare in our community,” says Dallas.
Offering a full compliment of
childcare services includes nanny placement, on-call nannies and professional
babysitting. No more rifling through the rolodex to find the number of your
sister’s friend’s daughter to watch the kids on date night. Dallas and her
staff tailor childcare services to each family, creating individual pro-grams
that fit not only parents’ busy schedules, but their values as well.
Dallas’ tutoring services work
similarly. Every student’s academic needs are different, and Dallas is prepared
to meet all of them. Tutors aren’t just subject-matter experts—they’re role
models, and matching the right role model to the right student dramatically
improves learning. One-on-one tutors offer homework help and prepare students
for tests needed to apply for college, including the ACT and the SAT.
Thoroughly trained tutors strive to make learning easy, fun and rewarding. They
employ structured methods and proven teaching approaches, but keep things
flexible to accommodate every student’s unique needs. Tutoring takes place at
an on-site learning center.
“Our secret weapon is our
people—our role-model nannies and tutors,” says Dallas. “Everything we do is
customized and one-on-one. Every family is unique, every student is unique
and every solution is unique. We offer a role-model approach to
full-service, in-home customized childcare. We handle everything—initial
family consultation, nanny screening, matching families and nannies, and
replacing nannies when circumstances change. All of that and more is part of
our brand promise.”
“Our rock-star nannies and
tutors come mainly from UCO and OC, as well as by referral,” Dallas
says. “ We also have some super-great nannies from less obvious
sources—retired moms and grandmas who still have a passion for taking care of
children—as well as highly screened internet leads.”
