While every community we serve is valued and loved, as the birthplace of Tutoring Rocks, El Dorado Hills holds an extra special place in our hearts. It all started back in 2008 when Chris and Sheeva Koch put their passion for serving youth in education into action by creating a small tutoring business. They could have never predicted the incredible welcome that would be offered to them by the El Dorado Hills community. As Tutoring Rocks, we’ve since been defined by whom we’ve become in El Dorado Hills, and we couldn’t be more honored by that fact.
We believe that how we spend our time and resources reflects what we value. In this treasured community, we’ve chosen to invest ourselves in the following:
Weekly trash cleanups
Teacher appreciation lunches
ORHS VAPA & athletic programs
K-8 campus events
Local non-profit events
Seasonal on-campus programs
Finals preparation events
"TR is so gifted! Our son has had many tutors over the years and it had been a struggle each and every week to get him to go. In two years with TR, he has never once asked to skip tutoring. They have been a light for our child as he approaches 16! I can never thank them enough for their positive energy and enthusiasm with my child week after week!"
"Our two teen daughters have been raised to ask for support when they need it. We are eternally grateful that this help came in the form of Tutoring Rocks! Not only do they have the expertise required to assist students with specific, skill-based strategies in all subject areas, but they also tailor their tutoring to the ‘whole’ child. The particular learning style of a student is always honored and respected."
"The TR family is a gift to the young people in our community. They are extremely knowledgeable in their subjects, they are kindhearted in their demeanor, and they naturally generate enthusiasm for studying."
Tutoring Rocks has spent the last decade plus establishing ourselves as an educational pillar in the Great Sacramento area, serving the students of locations like Sacramento, Folsom and El Dorado Hills throughout this time in our effort to leave a lasting positive impact on the lives of children in the community. With that said, El Dorado Hills is always going to be of great significance to our organization, known to us and the community as the place where it all started.
Back in 2008, Chris and Sheeva Koch saw a pressing need in the El Dorado Hills community for tutoring services that would enhance the education of students and give them the boost they need to succeed in their K-12 education. They understand the necessity for a quality education as a primer for success in life, and so they started the small tutoring business in El Dorado Hills that you know as Tutoring Rocks.
In the time that has transpired since 2008, we’ve extended our tutoring services to all of El Dorado Hills and beyond, becoming a fixture in our community both inside and outside of the classroom. The El Dorado Hills learning community has welcomed us with open arms, and because of that, we’ve felt truly honored to be a part of a number of local events, such as being able to volunteer for ORHS dances and athletic events. We also proudly sponsor local events, such as ORHS drama productions and athletic events, as well as many local non-profit fundraising events.
On top of all of that, we extend our tutoring services in El Dorado Hills for free via on-campus tutoring for ORHS student-athletes, as well as free finals prep programs for all high school students. Those are just a few ways we feel as though we can give back to the community that has embraced our mission, and we aim to provide tutoring services and SAT prep to El Dorado Hills for years to come.
