On October 25th ‘School Is Easy’ attended the Better Business Bureau 2012 Torch Awards Presentation as a finalist for the Marketplace Excellence award. Our BC Tutoring Service Company didn’t win the torch award, but we sure had a great time. Cindy Noble, our bookkeeper, won the prize for the best 1930s costume. The winner of our award category was China Star Travel. It was a pleasure to see him win because he was so grateful. He works hard and offers a great service.
Our BC Tutoring Service speech was prepared, just in case!
I had a speech prepared just in case we won. Since I didn’t get to make my speech that night I’d like to share it with all of you, our tutors and our clients:
“I’d like to acknowledge all of the finalists. To become a finalist for this award you have all shown integrity and good practices.
‘School is Easy’ began 10 years ago and it’s been a wonderful journey. I have great support and I’d like to share those people with you.
OUR B.C. TUTORS: You are the stars in this business. You provide the service direct to the students. You know your subject well and you share it with your students. I’ve had countless remarks from parents and students thanking us for their great teacher.
HELEN, TUTORING COMPANY OFFICE MANAGER: She started as my babysitter and now she is my office manager, franchisee trainer/mentor. Helen is always respectful to everyone. She is positive, cheerful and has a great sense of humour. She is firm, yet gentle.
