The tutors who work at the Estes Park Learning Place are highly skilled, energetic and committed. Because each of the tutors possesses credentials that include advanced degrees, they are paid by the Estes Park Learning Place to work with students. Individual plans are developed for each student to set goals, assess progress, and then set new goals. This results in the tutor committing significantly more time for each session than the hour spent with a student. The tutors motivate and support students as they learn at their own pace.
