    About Penryn

    Before Penryn, California was a city, it was a granite quarry. For decades through the late nineteenth century, Welsh immigrants gathered to the area to mine the granite stores, a familiar labor to many of them. Silver, granite, and other minerals were frequently mined in Wales, and settlers brought these skills and hardy work ethic with them with their arrival to California. They also brought their language and culture.

    Like many cities in the United States, Penryn is named for the home region of the immigrants who came to America. New York (named for York, England), New Hampshire (named for Hampshire in the UK), and Penryn are imported names. In fact, Penryn is a Welsh word, aptly named for a promontory or headland, which describes the original seaport from which the quarry took its name in the immigrants’ home country of Wales.

    The mines in Penryn, California proved lucrative—though they may not have contained the gold so many other settlers sought in the mid-nineteenth century. As more granite was discovered in Penry, more businesses followed suit. Eventually, the area transitioned from being a mining camp to a small town, where it remains today with less than 1,000 residents.

    The granite mined from the quarry that made Penryn a spot on the map (however small) is known for its lustre and beauty. Penryn granite is mottled with flecks of black and white, popular for modern kitchen design, and changes in hue depending on the light that shines on it. The black and white turn a blue-grey hue in dimmer light, or when polished or wet. Penryn granite is also durable and strong, capable of being used in the construction of a number of landmarks in California such as the capitol building foundations and the U.S. Mint in San Francisco.

    Tutors serving struggling students in Penryn, in many ways, are like the early Welsh miners. They are willing to dig deep, work hard, and eventually, draw out a valuable product that lasts a lifetime. With focus and determination, both tutors and their clients can see exponential growth and success. The students who go through the process with these well-trained tutors develop ideas, academic abilities, and hopefully, retain good study skills to take with them into future educational endeavors. Just as granite is strong and lasting, so too is the life of the mind when it is expanded and worked with over time.
