Our Story

Lindsay Springer was overloaded with requests from students, parents, and friends wanting her to tutor. She had the resources, but not the time! If only there was a way to bring together like-minded educators and specialists in their fields to help give students the most optimal support in any subject . . .

So, in 2015, Lindsay began BookMark Tutors. Her small idea grew from a two-person, home-grown business into a large-scale operation focused on giving learners premium support in any field, subject, grade, or life stage. Lindsay has surrounded herself with educators who are passionate about providing a customizable learning experiences that adapts to the learner’s style and speed while, together, working towards each learner’s unique definition of success.

Our Instructors

OCT, ECE, or subject specialists

The majority of our tutors are well-trained undergraduate students, graduate students, professionals, or OCT/ECE teachers. We conduct in-person interviews with each instructor, contact all references, and ensure your family’s safety with police background checks.

 

Occasionally, we do hire high school students for more specialized subjects, such as French and Hebrew. High school students must be able to demonstrate an advanced level of proficiency in the language or subject and have a teacher of the language validate their skills.
