Does your child need a little help in school? Is he not catching on to algebra and geometry? Perhaps he or she needs help developing better study habits? This is where Mike Siesing, the owner of Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services comes in. Last year Siesing started a one-on-one tutoring company here in the county that sends an experienced teacher to a family’s home to help a child improve his grades and build his or her academic self-confidence.

Siesing moved from Florida to the county 10 years ago with his wife, Deborah. At that time, Lake County High School lured him here by offering him an opportunity to teach business classes. By taking the position, he was able to leave the corporate world behind and fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a teacher. Since he already owned a condo in Frisco, this gave him an opportunity to live here full-time.After teaching at the high school for eight years, Siesing decided to start a franchise that allowed him to build on his business and teaching experiences. This came in the form of Club Z! In-Home Tutoring Services, the largest in-home, one-on-one tutoring company in the United States. Though most of its offices are located in large cities, Siesing decided to bring this supplemental education resource to Summit County. Siesing’s goal for Club Z! is to provide support for classroom teachers, and give parents a way to help their kids succeed during stressful academic times at school. His tutors can help in a variety of ways – from helping a child with a particularly difficult academic subject to preparing a high school student for his college placement exams.

Siesing says the rewards of doing this work come “when students, who have been wrestling with challenges in class, suddenly brighten up and exclaim, ‘Aha, NOW I get it!'”Siesing is an avid reader. When he has free time, he reads everything he can gets his hands on, from nonfiction to cereal boxes. He also love hiking with Deborah and their Yorkies, Xavier and Natasha.

Siesing laments, “I hope my ‘boss’ will let me ski more than just eight days next season! I’ve been going through extreme withdrawal since the end of fantasy football season!”To contact Mike Siesing, call (970) 668-0515.- Elisabeth Jordan
