The new school year is about to begin. We are excited for the new opportunities it will bring to The Tutoring Solution and the communities we serve.
Over the Summer, we worked on a variety of projects aimed at improving the lives of children in our community.
We gave a presentation at the 22nd Annual Chino Valley GATE Together, titled, “Be a Blogger,” where we taught students how to effectively create and run their own blogs. Watch videos and see additional information about the presentation here – http://thecatutoringsolution.com/category/community-outreach/2011-chino-valley-gate-together/
Earlier this month, I presented to a group of volunteer tutors from School on Wheels titled, “How to Motivate the Unmotivated.” We provided practical tips for tutors to use to inspire their students. School on Wheels provides free tutoring for thousands of homeless students across Southern California. For more information on School on Wheels, visit their website here – http://www.schoolonwheels.org/ or check out my posts here – http://thecatutoringsolution.com/category/community-outreach/school-on-wheels/
Our first year of operation was a huge success. Our tutors worked with 40 students to improve their work habits, study skills and grades. More importantly, I believe we left an impact that goes beyond our business. Many students developed tools to become successful after our tutoring has finished. We volunteered our time to help Booster Club programs, teach GATE students to blog and give volunteer tutors tools to help homeless children succeed in the classroom.
We also partnered with http://www.chinohillskids.net/. Chino Hills Kids gives the most current family friendly events, services and classes in and around the Chino Hills area.
For those of you who know me personally, I want to update you on an exciting new event in my life. As a result of my work on my blog, Twitter and Facebook, two companies asked me to become their Social Media consultant. The two companies are Scrapbook Expo, The Premier Scrapbook/Paper-Crafting Show in the United States and Los Serranos Country Club, in Chino Hills, CA. As a result, my sister, Lacey and I launched our own Social Media company, Welborn Social Media. Lacey has significant experience with web design, graphic design and video editing. She is also an experienced blogger and Social Media consultant. I have experience using Social Media and implementing the tools to connect people with companies they would otherwise not be connected with.
If you are interested in Social Media opportunities, give us a call: Zeb (909) 973 – 9089 or Lacey (909) 973 – 9088, or sign up for the Welborn Social Media newsletter, by responding to this email with “Welborn Social Media.”
I want to thank all of you who supported us last year. If you worked with us or received tutoring from us, we would love for you to share your experience on our Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/TheTutoringSolution

Please let me know if I can help you in any way,
