2017 Year in Review

Standard

by Dr. Charice Hayes, CEO

It has been a joyous 2017. All 4 One Tutoring continues to make strides. In last year’s review, I stated that we have put some things in place to diversify and expand our company and services, and we began to reap the fruits of those seeds.

Contracts/Partnerships

In March of 2017, we secured a contract with Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE). We are very elated to have this contract. Recently, we have submitted a proposal to secure another contract with MSDE. We are executing our current contract so well that we are optimistic that we will keep securing contracts.

In June of 2017, we obtained a business-to-business (B2B) partnership with SD Solutions. They help support us with e-learning. We look forward to a lengthy partnership.

Once again, we were able to hire tutors and instructors for our local face-to-face tutoring and our after-school program at the Empowerment Academy . This month, we have once again started the process of hiring an administrative assistant/marketing intern . We are looking forward to bringing more staff on-board the first 3 months of 2018.

Office Home

Last year (it was mentioned in our 2016 year in review), we closed one of our offices due to space and location. We are still looking for a larger center/office to call home. Over the past few months, we have been looking at buildings. We still have office space at The Empowerment Academy.

Afterschool Program

Our after-school program, at the Empowerment Academy , continues to get praises by administrators, community leaders, and parents. Even though we have lost a few of our loyal families and students for the 2017-2018 school year due to graduating and/or transfers, we continue with our project-driven instruction, STEM projects, and arts.

Workshops/Seminars

On the behalf of All 4 One Tutoring and All 4 One Learning Solutions, I was able to participate in a 3-day research seminar at Georgia State University via the Institute of Education Sciences (IES) and Educational Testing Service (ETS). I was amongst some leaders in research. We came together to not only familiarize ourselves with the Program the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) and its databases but to be on the path to help solve problems or close gaps in cognitive and workplace skills needed for successful participation in 21st-century society and the global economy. Since I am an employer, I wanted to use the database to acquire knowledge and begin research on average literacy skills of adults within two age groups. Hopefully this research becomes into fruition in 2018.

Mayor’s Office

I was elated and honored for All 4 One Tutoring to be approached by the Baltimore Mayor’s Office to participate in a well overdue employment event entitled Work Baltimore. This month long event was initiated to serve the City of Baltimore’s citizens and stimulate the City’s economic growth. Unfortunately, due to previous commitments, we were unable to participate in the seminars and workshops. However, we are very grateful for the opportunity. Hopefully, we will get another opportunity in the future.

First On-Demand Course

All 4 One Tutoring debuted its first on-demand Spanish I course in July. The course uses vocabulary and language structure through a series of activities designed for realistic communication. You achieve listening, reading, speaking, and writing language skills. You will develop an understanding of the Spanish language and culture.

Doing Business As (DBA)

In the last quarter of this year, we acquired a trade name (All 4 One Learning Solutions) with Maryland’s Department of Assessments and Taxation. All 4 One Learning Solutions has a different focus and operation than All 4 One Tutoring. The focus is solving problems with innovation. We look forward to what this new venture will bring in the future.

Accounting

For the fifth year in a row, All 4 One Tutoring‘s income and net profit has increased. We just celebrated our sixth year in operation in October. Our income has increased 30% this year from 2016 (a slight decrease from 2015’s report), and our net profit has increased 26% (a slight decrease from 2015’s report). What we have planned for 2018, we hope to keep this trend ascending.

What’s Next

Being the owner of such a blossoming, rewarding, and empowering organization is such an honor. We are proof that when we work together to achieve a shared goal, we can expand quality services so that everyone can be autonomous in positive social change. What we have planned for 2018 is:

  • to expand to the state of Georgia.
  • to develop more on-demand courses.
  • to begin a company book project.
  • to develop more partnerships.
  • to find our office home.

Special Thanks

I would like to give a special thank you to those who have contributed blog posts this year. Laura Pearson has been a huge help with contributing wonderful informative and innovative content. We will continue to open our doors for guest bloggers in 2018.

See you prosper in 2018!!

2015 Year in Review 

Standard

by Charice Wofford, CEO

  
It’s been another fabulous year for All 4 One Tutoring.  This past year, we’ve diversified and expanded our company and programming. Within the first few months of 2015, we established an office in the Pikesville, Maryland area.  At our office location, we provide tutoring and training. 

In the summer of 2015, we were able to run a summer tutoring program. We also added new tutors to our family this past summer. The summer of 2015 was spectacular. 

During the last quarter of 2015, All 4 One Tutoring formed a partnership with another educational company in India. We’re looking forward to great things in 2016 with this partnership. 

Our after-school program continues to get praise by administrators, community leaders, and parents. This school year, we initiated more project-driven instruction and projects. We are looking forward to finishing the school year with a field trip to a STEM center. How exciting!!!! 

Last but not least, for a second year in a row, we’ve been recognized as the best in Baltimore for “educational services.” We would like to thank the Baltimore Recognition Program for such a prestigious honor. Being the owner of such a blossoming and empowering organization is such an honor. We are proof that when we work together to achieve a shared goal, we can expand quality education and learning so that everyone can strive for positive social change. We have more plans underway for 2016!!!!

  

Here’s a look at what’s coming in 2016:

-more partnerships (international and nationwide)

-becoming an approved testing site for CASAS testing (for adult education)

-offering more training and workshops 

I’d like to thank everyone who has had a positive impact and who has supported All 4 One Tutoring. Together we can reach the goal of educational EMPOWERMENT.

Happy Friday

Standard

June 6, 2014

We trust that everyone is enjoying their Friday. We have been very busy with preparing to expand our services to offer a STEM after school program. We have partnered with a local charter school to provide an after school STEM education program. Our STEM after school program will begin this fall and we have several sign-ups already.

STEM education is an approach to teaching and learning that integrates the content and skills of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM Standards of Practice guide STEM instruction by defining the combination of behaviors, integrated with STEM content, which is expected of a proficient STEM student.

If you are a school leader/principal in the Baltimore City or County area and would like to partner with us to implement an after school STEM program, contact us at info@all4onetutoring.com.

Put Commas After Your Periods

We were honored to listen to United States Congressman Elijah Cummings, who was a keynote speaker, at a graduation ceremony last night. Congressman Cummings geared his speech towards education and succeeding. A profound statement that resonated in his speech about education, determination, and success was:

Put a comma (,) after your periods (.).

BCPSS’s Empowerment Academy and Learn It Systems have partnered to launch a successful STEM-focused afterschool program in West Baltimore. Over 60 Empowerment Academy students in pre-K to 8th grades are engaged daily in Learn It’s afterschool school program featuring lessons in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Science Technology Engineering Arts Math Empowerment Academy’s afterschool program re-engages student minds with a unique blend of hands-on learning and state of the art technology. The program kicks off each day with a healthy snack and mandatory student homework sessions and then the real fun begins. Afterschool instructors encourage critical thinking sessions through Learn It’s structured Young Scientist and World Explorer curricula and grade-level iPad learning games.

During the past several years, the Empowerment Academy students have placed tops on the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) and achieved many state and local regonitions. Learn It’s STEM-focused afterschool program was a natural fit for the engaged Empowerment Academy’s student population.
