What tutoring costs
The costs of tutoring vary dramatically. I've assembled a
to help you decide what fits into your budget. If you can afford professional, im-person help, it is the best way to go. A skilled educator in a one-on-one coaching relationship with a child can yield dramatic, long-term learning results.
Where to find the right tutor
You have a lot of options here. Many parents like working with a tutoring center because they have package deals and access to highly qualified tutors. Others prefer the flexibility of an independent tutor. I'm compiling a select list on this site. Whatever you choose, the most important thing is that you interview the tutor to find out what her qualifications are and how she will work with your child. Next, the child must work with the tutor on a trial basis to see how they fit. If, after a few sessions, it seems the tutor is not a good match for your child, continue to look. There are many wonderful kids homework help options available.
What to ask your child's tutor
First things first: qualifications! For the absolute best kids homework help, look for a tutor with a college or graduate degree in elementary education, specializing in your child's area of greatest difficulty.Five questions for an elementary tutor:
1. What is your philosophy of elementary education?
2. Why do you work with kids?
3. What experience have you had working with children my child's age?
4. How do you respond to learning difficulties?
5. How do you stay in communication with the parents of your students?
These will get you started. Explore this site for subject-specific information on finding the academic support your child needs. Here's to your (and your child's) success!
