Teachers on Call is celebrating 30 big years of helping students make the grade, and Cursive’s Jessica Green helped to shine the spotlight on the organization and their work in Village Living Magazine.


“I’ve always believed that every child deserves a chance to maximize their learning experiences,” says Rhona Sallay, founder of Teachers on Call. Recognizing that there was a need within the school system to support both students and their families with diverse tutoring services, Teachers on Call was born.


Fostering a creative and harmonious environment to facilitate learning is what makes Teachers on Call a success story. Emphasizing open communication and focusing on the specific needs of each student rather than employing a “one size fits all” strategy has turned the company into the thirty year-strong institution it is today.
