Club Z! In-Home TutoringClub Z! In-Home Tutoring Services has expanded from Raleigh to Rolesville and Wake Forest. The company uses each student’s classroom curriculum to provide a customized tutoring program, and does not require long-term contracts, so parents can discontinue the service at any time.  Rodney Taylor, area director of the new Wake Forest Club Z!, tutoring is done in the student’s home and usually after normal business hours and on weekends so parents don’t have to provide transportation for their child to and from a learning center.
