This week, Hodis Learning & Music is celebrating its one year anniversary of being in business! It has been an amazing year full of service, learning, and growth, and I could not be more proud of our team and students.

A little over a year ago, I developed a great vision: an educational connections business that operated by a philosophy of kindness and expertise. Every step that we have taken as a business has stemmed from and further promoted this philosophy.

We developed a rigorous interview process to select the most exceptional candidates for our tutor and teacher positions. We expanded the number of subjects offered so we can help more students in their academicartistic, and musical endeavors. Our philanthropy has flourished and we now give 20% of our profits to SPEF and PEF. We have helped dozens of students pass milestones, get good grades, and hone their skills. Our website launched a resources page full of insightful articles with topics about study skills and tips for success. And we kept our services at fair and affordable rates throughout all the changes.

HLM could not have grown so much in the past year without our community. We thank all of our students and parents for their patronage. All of us at HLM have thoroughly enjoyed serving you and helping you succeed in academics, music, art, and beyond!

We are very grateful for our Director of Marketing, Rachel Hanks, and our Outreach Coordinator In-Training, Wuzhi Lou, who have been integral to our success by spreading the word and building client relations. We are very proud of our expert tutors and teachers for doing such great work and we are grateful to have them on our team. And we owe many, many thanks to Steven Lawrence at the South Pasadenan News and Nexusplex Business Production Agency for his guidance and wisdom.

We look forward to continuing to serve our wonderful community. Here’s to another year of Shining Brighter with Hodis Learning & Music!
