From time to time, we come across wonderful organizations – organizations that are dedicated to helping improve the lives of others. We are so inspired by these types of organizations, that we feel the need to share them with our readers. Comfort Zone Camp is one of those organizations.
Comfort Zone is a nonprofit organization that provides a safe environment for children and teens to grieve after having suffered the loss of a loved one. According to Comfort Zone Camp, the camps are free and they “include confidence building programs and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings.” The camp is available to children from 7 to 17 years of age.
Comfort Zone Camp is funded through donations given by groups and individuals that donate money and time, because they believe in the cause. If you would like to volunteer and help heal a young person’s heart, if you would like to donate money, or if you would like to register a camper, be sure to check out their website. We hope more people will become more involved in organizations like Comfort Zone Camp.

Collin Miller, Principal of Sparks Middle School in La Puente, invited me to speak to his middle school students during career day at his school.
I titled my presentation, Doing What You Love, in order to show students that now is the most opportune time in the history of mankind to pursue your passion. The Internet and social media has provided such an amazing opportunity for people of all ages to pursue their passions and turn their passion into financial success.
During the day, I spoke about The Tutoring Solution and my Internet marketing business, Welborn Social Media, my core values, about myself, what I do on a daily basis and offered my advice for them.
The atmosphere at the school was amazing. The students were all excited to see the speakers at career day . . . and many students came dressed in business attire. The school even had teachers who donated ties for students who wanted to wear a tie.
I was amazed at the behavior of the students and their eagerness to absorb the information I was able to give them. I also shared with them the blog-based learning program we developed last year. The blog-based learning program is designed to encourage passionate students to use their passsions as a tool to learn valuable life-long learning skills. These skills can be applied to any job they have in the future and aims to help them get more excited about their education.
If any of you are interested in giving your child the opportunity to pursue his/her passions I encourage you to check out our Blog-Based Learning Program.
I loved participating in career day at Sparks Middle School and would love the opportunity to share what I’ve experienced with others. If anyone is interested in having me share my knowledge with students at their school . . . or with business professionals looking to market their business online I’d be happy to speak with them.

Looking Back and Moving Forward
We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Many of you were grateful for the days off of work or school, and for the opportunity to spend time with family and friends that you don’t get to see on a regular basis, for your health, your career, and so much more.
Although we are grateful for all those things, this Thanksgiving we thought about those of you who have helped our tutoring company grow and to the people who inspire us to be and do better.
We are thankful for those individuals/organizations that work hard every day to improve the lives of others and, as a result, improve the different communities and the world we live in. While looking ahead for the new year we want to keep in mind those who inspire us, learn from them, and do everything we can to improve the lives of students in our community.
Julia Schemmer – Inspiring Others to Help
We would like to start off by giving a special thank you to Julia Schemmer. Julia Schemmer was the winner of our Norco High School Share Your Passion Scholarship. In her essay, she talked about how her sister’s battle with cancer inspired her desire to become a doctor and help others. We were so inspired and moved by her story that we awarded her as the Norco High School Share Your Passion Scholarship Winner. Nonetheless, we became even more moved when she later contacted us to promote her Facebook Fan Page for the organization she founded called, The Face of Cancer. Her organization is devoted to helping cancer patients deal with the hardships of the illness. She wrote a blog article for our webpage, sharing the purpose and goals of her organization. She is truly one of the most inspiring young people we know and we would love for all of our readers to check out her Facebook Page and support such a wonderful cause.
Counselors, Teachers, and Tutors – Inspiring Us to Be and Do Better
We want to thank all of the counselors, teachers, and tutors that work very hard, every day, in order to provide all of our students with a wonderful education and a great learning experience. We are fortunate to know wonderful people who are devoted to helping students become knowledgeable and prepared young adults. These individuals go above and beyond, and they do more than what is expected of them, because they understand the value of education.
School on Wheels & United Way – Two Noteworthy Organizations
Additionally, organizations like School on Wheels and United Way, continue to enthuse us with the wonderful services they provide for disadvantaged youth. School on Wheels offers free tutoring services for homeless students, while United Way created a mentoring program in order to offer mentors for disadvantaged youth. Both these organizations’ desire to help disadvantaged kids inspire us to become better and strive for new ways to help more kids in our community.
A Special Thanks to Zeb Welborn
Finally, we would also like to thank Zeb Welborn, the founder of The Tutoring Solution and Welborn Social Media, for inspiring us to be better as well. His goal has always been to motivate others into following their passions and living fulfilling lives. He began The Tutoring Solution, precisely because of that goal; he wanted to motivate students to live up to their full potential and to grow to love learning as much as he did. He since has moved on to run Welborn Social Media, a company devoted to helping small to medium sized businesses grow. We thank him for his efforts to improve our community.
These wonderful people/organizations make us feel inspired. We are so excited for the new year and can’t wait to help even more bright young minds reach their potential.
Help Us Help More People – Post a Review on Google Places
In order to grow even more, and provide more tutoring services for students who aren’t meeting their potential, we need your help. We would really appreciate it if you would post a review/recommendation on Google Places. By doing so, you will let other parents know about our services and allow us to grow as a company and help other students succeed in and out of school.
We are constantly looking for new ways to help the community and to help improve the lives of students. If you have any suggestions or know of any organizations/causes that need help, please email us and let us know. We genuinely hope to make a difference and help improve the lives of others.

When asked her goals for the future, #100 Norco High School Share Your Passion scholarship winner, Julia Schemmer replied, “Change the world.” Passionate in the medical field, Julia not only aspires to be a missionary doctor but has also founded her own organization, The Face of Cancer.
The Face of Cancer is a Facebook project launched in September 2012. Its primary function is to give support to Corona-Norco cancer patients. “It’s easy to see the cancer ribbons, or to be asked to donate,” she says, “While these are equally important, there is a great malnourishment of actual support to these patients.” Their past two events have been a huge success. Julia hopes to expand the organization by setting up a Pen Pal system with a member of the Face of Cancer and a cancer patient.
“It’s amazing the things you can do for the community with your resources,” Julia says. “Sometimes the best world-change is just letting people know that you care. I hope this organization inspires others to make a difference as well.”

GATE Together – We were excited to participate in the GATE Together workshops again this year. On Saturday, May 19th, we presented a workshop on the benefits and reasons for becoming a blogger. Most students walked in having a vague idea on blogging, but they walked out excited to start their own blog on topics ranging from animals, to video games, to music. There is nothing more rewarding than presenting a new and fun topic to intelligent students who are eager to learn. We really appreciate the Chino Valley Unified School District for inviting us to present again this year.
Macaroni Kids – We wanted to take this opportunity to share with our readers a wonderful website and blog called Macaroni Kid. If you are not familiar with Macaroni Kid, be sure to click on the link and check them out, they are a group of moms that provide their readers with information on kid-friendly family events and activities that are happening in our communities every week. They provide great opportunities for parents to take their kids to fun activities and spend quality time together as a family.
Our Prominent Articles – If you have visited our blog yet, please be sure to do so. This month we wrote articles on the different types of intelligence, we looked at different learning styles, we took a closer look at the STAR test, we tackled the bullying problem, and we covered how to improve your child’s self-esteem in 3 different articles – learning to listen, teach your children about their culture and history, and remind them that you love them every day. We always strive to open communication between parents, tutors, students, teachers, counselors, and anyone else invested in children’s education, so please feel free to comment on our articles and share your opinions.
We are tutoring students in Chino, Chino Hills, Eastvale, Mira Loma, Alta Loma, Ontario, Corona, Norco, and Rancho Cucamonga at Sky Country Elementary, Oxford Preparatory Academy, Townshend Junior High School, Roosevelt High School, Alta Loma High School, Norco High School, Centennial High School, Chino Hills High School, Ontario Christian High School and Ayala High School.

On Saturday, July 16th, 2011 and again on Monday, February 6th, 2012, we had the honor of sharing our knowledge on tutoring and motivation with the School on Wheels tutors. We felt extremely privileged to be asked to conduct these two workshops and we cannot begin to express our gratitude.
We are great supporters of the School on Wheels organization, and we sincerely respect all that they do for homeless children. It is because of organizations like School on Wheels, that homeless children are better able to reach their full potential and to feel that their contribution to society matters. These volunteer tutors make these kids feel like important and valuable members of society, as they should be made to feel.
Natasha Bayus, the education and training coordinator for School on Wheels, was kind enough to share with us some of the participants’ feedback. The overwhelming majority said that they learned how to interact and communicate with their students more effectively, and in turn, this helped them understand what tools to use in order to connect with their students and to motivate them to become more involved in their education and to value its great importance.
Many participants also felt more comfortable about contacting the student’s teachers and parents after participating in the workshop. They realized the importance of working with the teachers and parents in order to improve the student’s grades and understanding of the material being learned. There is nothing more important than having the students know that their success and learning matter and that there are many individuals that care about them and that are invested in their educational growth.
Nonetheless, out of all the lessons the tutors learned, the most important seemed to be to let their students’ learn from their mistakes. Instead of being made to feel ashamed, children should learn that we all make mistakes and that that is how we learn and grow. Most of all, students should feel positive about their learning experience.
Education is what keeps us all going. Give us an opportunity to show you how one-on-one tutoring can benefit your child’s future.

Last Summer I gave a presentation to a group of volunteer tutors from School on Wheels titled How to Motivate the Unmotivated. School on Wheels has provided volunteer tutoring for homeless students in the Los Angeles area since 1993 and I received a lot of positive feedback from those who attended and received the following email several weeks ago to ask if I was interested in running an online webinar to which I agreed.
It sounds like things are going really well for your company. Your workshop for our tutors was very popular last year. I’m wondering if there’s any chance you would be interested in doing another for us, but this time in an online format. We are offering online webinars, and I would love to offer your strategies and professional expertise to more of our tutors. If this interests you, please let me know and we can discuss times. I could come to your office to run the workshop in order to make it convenient for you.

The presentation is set to take place on Monday at 7 PM and they already have a large list of volunteer tutors interested in attending. I am excited for the opportunity and am always happy to share my time and expertise with those interested in helping others. School on Wheels is a great organization and I encourage all of you to visit their website to find out more about them.
