I have been "listening" with much attention and enthusiasm to all the wonderful discussions among the participants of this group. Let me introduce myself; My mane is Sandy Drewes and I am presently a member of the staff at the National Center for Developmental Education at Appalachian State University. I am a former Kellogger who has taught developmental math and tutored in the math learning center at a community college on Long Island. Now, I am asking for some assistance. I am interested in gathering information, suggestions, etc. about strategies for marketing tutoring centers. Many of you have such successful programs in place and I am hoping that you can share the types of advertising you have found that work. How do you get the students to "drop in" that first time? How do you "sell" your center to the students? Do you conduct any fund raisers? I appreciate any hints that you have found to be successful. Please reply through this group or to me personally at [log in to unmask] Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
