The company says they will continue in-person and virtual tutoring.

"We are continuing to provide in-person tutoring for those that want to come in. We are strict on regulations and requirements and we are following the recommendations of the public health department and adding to that. We will service one or two students here at a time. But most of our services will be provided via zoom."
