Meet the Staff

Mary Alissandratos

Welcome to Tutor Time Dunedin! My name is Mary and I am the Owner. I have been here since the school opened over 17 years ago! I have my MBA is Business and many years of experience as an administrator and business owner. Because of the longevity of our school, we have a very tenure staff, over half of them have been here 7 years or longer.

Everyday is different and special! The perks you get from the children including smiles, hugs and kisses make it worth while! I value the strong relationships I build with our children, families and staff and feel like they are an extension of my own family.

We work to create a family environment with a focus on early education and exceptional care. Our goal is to make your child feel like they are at home. We host many special events for our families to get involved in and encourage participation! We have a longstanding reputation and the referrals never stop! Call us today to see why our school is the best choice for your child’s early education.
