Our History

Founded in October of 2005 by Yolanda Fontanez-Coleman, Team Tutor has quickly become the Delaware Valley’s premier educational tutoring firm. Team Tutor offers the highest quality personalized one-on-one tutoring for grades Pre-K through College at very affordable rates. Team Tutor also provides enrichment classes at several local school districts and parks and recreation departments.

Yolanda’s passion for educating children and inspiring them to achieve was the driving force behind her decision to develop Team Tutor. An expert in her field, Ms. Fontanez-Coleman spent more than 10 years with the School District of Philadelphia and continues to teach enrichment classes in several disciplines including Spanish.

It was during her tenure with the Philadelphia School District that Yolanda was first exposed to the wide-spread need for accessible one-on-one instruction. With no assistance in sight, she decided that she would become the solution by matching students with tutors who could truly address each child’s individual needs.

Yolanda’s mission is to offer the highest quality of educational instruction in an accessible manner. She believes all children can learn and should be given the opportunity for academic success. Though she may not be currently teaching in the traditional classroom setting, her goal is to help one child at a time through Team Tutor.

Our Mission

TEAM TUTOR is an educational firm providing individualized instruction designed to support and supplement classroom learning. Our ultimate mission is to provide each and every one of our students with the tools they need to achieve academic success.

Our tutors help students improve grades, raise test scores, learn productive study skills, build self-confidence and most importantly, they enable their students to succeed in the classroom.

We tutor students in need of intervention or enrichment services in grades Pre-K through College throughout the entire Delaware Valley, including the city of Philadelphia, and the surrounding suburbs.
