Chyten: A Family Name. A Commitment to Excellence.
When Neil Chyten founded the company in 1984, he brought a longstanding reputation for excellence shared among his extensive client base and was determined to bring that same level of excellence to his company. He insisted that Chyten would be a shining model of private education. Chyten, the company, is the product of that commitment to educational excellence. The following seven qualities only begin to tell the story of how Neil Chyten's commitment to educational excellence has made Chyten the national leader in tutoring, test preparation, academic enrichment, and college admission services:
1. Chyten Writes its Own Curriculum
This is exceptionally rare in this industry in which 95% of all companies and individual tutors largely repurpose content from publically available test preparation books and study manuals. While writing books is not an easy task, Chyten believes that the payoff in student performance makes it well worth the effort.
2. Chyten Hires Only Exceptional Tutors
Chyten begins its tutor hiring process by requiring all tutor candidates to have master's degrees. While this alone does not ensure that Chyten has the best tutors in each region, the interviewing, screening, and application process does. With master's degree as a starting point, Chyten dives deep into a potential tutor's interpersonal characteristics and applies its proprietary hiring algorithm to the process. Only if a candidate possesses Chyten's eight essential characteristics of a great tutor does the hiring process continue.
3. Chyten Keeps Parents Informed and Involved with ParentNET
Long before such things were readily available, Chyten built a proprietary web-based parent communication tool called ParentNET. Through ParentNET, parents are able to check schedules and receive tutor and class notes following every session. They can also give feedback to, and receive feedback from, Chyten tutors with respect to their students' particular challenges, strengths, opportunities, and progress.
4. Chyten Creates an Environment for Extraordinary Accomplishment
Chyten has years of experience bringing out talents and abilities that are often hidden from view or buried deep within a student's mind. It provides the essential nutrients needed for growth: encouragement, challenge, advice, guidance, suggestions, and strategies. The teaching skills of Chyten tutors, combined with top flight curriculum resources, have long created an environment in which students can reach and exceed even their own expectation.
5. Chyten's Tutor Match Guarantee
The importance of matching the right tutor to a student cannot be overstated. Chyten focuses a great deal on the tutor-student matching process. It backs up the effort with a tutor-match guarantee. If you don't agree that a tutor is the right match for your child, Chyten will try to find a tutor who is a better match. If you still don't agree, Chyten will refund the fees paid for both sessions and thank you for the opportunity to have worked with your student.
6. Chyten Provides All Services Under One Roof
Parents need not search for a tutor here or a counselor there. At Chyten, all services are provided in a seamlessly integrated manner for a more effective and uniform experience. Parents are assured that all services will be of the highest caliber, backed up by Chyten's 30 years of industry experience. Further, Chyten provides parents with the information they need to make all the right decisions at all the right times.
7. Chyten Has The Strongest Matriculation and Test Score Improvement Record in the IndustryA philosophy is only as great as results would indicate. So, while the six characteristics above certainly make Chyten unique, it is Chyten's longstanding record of success that has solidified its reputation for educational excellence.
