SUMMIT, NJ - College Nannies and Tutors (CNT), a complete resource for customized nanny and tutoring services, has opened in downtown Summit.  Mayor Ellen Dickson, and Common Council Members Dr. Robert Rubino and Albert Dill, Jr., jointed CNT owners, and Summit residents, Sharon French and Terry Haggerty to cut the ribbon officially launching the 2,200 square-foot learning center.

As parents of two teenagers, the husband and wife team of French and Haggerty both worked outside of the home until their oldest was 10 years old, and understand the critical nature of employing the right caregiver.  French has worked for more than 25 years, and has seen their family needs continue to evolve since their children were first born, and the couple has employed a live–in, then a live-out / full time, and now part-time / after school nanny.  “This is a very personal venture for us,” she says.  Haggerty adds, "We think there is an important, unmet need in Summit and the surrounding communities to provide this service by people who understand and have lived the challenges."

Haggerty left the financial services industry to pursue his passion to become a teacher.  After getting certified, he decided that instead of pursuing a traditional teaching job, he could have a massive impact on kids learning through one-on-one tutoring.  The selection of each tutor is critical, and CNT uses a "role model-based" placement process, ensuring that right “match” for the each student's needs is met.  “It is a privilege to deliver a service that we believe will enrich the lives of families in our unique community,” he said.

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
