Mentaur Learning has been locally owned and operated since it opened its doors in 2010. The original owner, Ginny Wirzbicki, felt Lincoln county could benefit from an affordable tutoring center. Ginny had worked at the Davidson Center and decided to use that as a model for Mentaur. Although the business has relocated twice, it still remains in Denver and is close enough to attract students from Lincolnton, Stanley, Pumpkin Center, Maiden, Catawba, Charlotte, and even Belmont.
In the summer of 2016, Ginny and her husband decided to move to Florida. Since she wanted the Mentaur tradition to continue, she offered the business to her tutors. Carolynn Wesche, who had been working at the center since January, 2016, decided to accept. Ginny is still associated with Mentaur as a tutor via Skype and as a college planner.
