As a former Long Beach educator, Dupé Aleru knows what it takes to help students find success in school.
Aleru, who was laid off from the Long Beach Unified School District in 2010, began Tutors for Tots, Tweens and Teens the same year as a way to continue helping youngsters who may be struggling in school.
The business grew out of Aleru’s living room into a new business office, which will host a grand opening celebration this Saturday, at 5541 E. 7th St.
“The grand opening of the business office is a milestone in my life, so I want to go big,” Aleru said. “I like to do everything big and glamorous.”
Aleru and her team of credentialed instructors work one-on-one with students in their homes, which provides the children with intensive instruction and also keeps them away from any distractions.

Tutors for Tots would like to congratulate its student Riley S. for being its December recipient for Student of the Month.

Riley S. is a 2nd grade excel student at Prisk Elementary school in Long Beach, CA. She began our program in October 2012 to help with her advancement in math and spelling.

During the last few months, Riley has worked with her tutor Kelley on weekly spelling tests, math problems and writing projects. Her pre and post tests exemplify her growth in math.

“Riley is very smart and excels in all her school work. She also continues to do better each week with her spelling words. Riley continues to be a joy to tutor. She loves to learn and is always up for me to challenge her, said Miss Rowell.”

Tutors for Tots would like to congratulate Riley S. on her achievement as well as acknowledge her tutor Kelley Rowell.

Way to go Riley. Keep up the great work!
