Farnham business owner unveils an exciting new book and a brand-new look, designed to help students flourish in 2018!

This week, Alex Scotchbrook, owner of Tutor Doctor, West Surrey, proudly announced the publication of ‘Academic Success Formula – How Ordinary Students Get Extraordinary Results,’ which she co-wrote with a host of educational experts.

“I’m thrilled to see the book published, writing it has been a fantastic joint effort and the final product is packed full of useful information for parents; everything from the importance of organisation to how to optimise brain function with great nutrition,” explains Alex.

The book is a savvy read for all. Designed to help parents and teachers alike learn how to encourage children to develop a growth mindset, set goals and expectations and place value in learning skills for life. Edited by Frank Milner, a veteran in the global education industry, the book emphasises that ‘thinking caps’ come in all shapes and sizes. Instead of trying to impose a single style and method of learning, Alex and her fellow education experts believe that with personal, tailored assistance, all students can achieve success.

“All students deserve the proper resources and tools they need to help them reach their maximum potential,” says Alex. “Parents and teachers need extra resources to reference when traditional methods in the classroom prove ineffective. We hope to help parents crack the code to ensure a promising future for students not only inside the classroom, but for life.”

Alex has been at the helm of her Tutor Doctor business in West Surrey since 2009 and is passionate about helping children to grow in confidence and ability. Alex thoroughly assesses a child’s needs and then carefully selects the best-fit tutor based on goals, personality and learning level. Tutors then visit students at home, at a time that is convenient for them.

As well as the publication of ‘Academic Success Formula’, Alex says that 2018 was the perfect time to unveil Tutor Doctor’s new look. A striking change, the company’s new branding is sure to turn heads with its bold colour palette, clever imagery and thought-provoking messaging. Something which she confirms is no accident.
“With spring just around the corner, it felt like the perfect time to reveal our new branding – it’s a big change and it’s been a huge undertaking because every single element has been broken down and rebuilt with our values and our passion for making a difference ingrained in every way. It’s fresh, forward thinking and most importantly, captures the essence of what we do here: help students to find clarity and confidence in their own learning.”

Already proving to be a success with parents and students she works with, Alex hopes that ‘Academic Success Formula’ will become a go-to resource for families in the community!
