Tutoring Centers: One-Stop Tutor Shop

Tutoring centers are often an excellent resource for students who are struggling academically. They have a staff of pre-screened experts in lots of different subjects--even tough ones, such as Calculus and trigonometry.

Sometimes, clients can choose whether to have sessions in the company's office or at home. (Choosing to have sessions on-site is almost always the cheaper option.)

Centers may also offer study groups or other types of enrichment that keep costs lower than one-on-one homework help.

Talk with the program director to find the right fit for you or your child. Finding the right personality fit can make a huge difference in the success of the experience. If the first person isn't a fit, take the time to find the right tutor. A great tutor is worth it!

Parents: I strongly recommend you shop around until you find the right fit for your child. That fit includes personality, skill set, and simple "chemistry." When your child is comfortable with this new person, results will be better.

Remember not to get too "grade focused." Yes, of course, grades are important. But learning is more important still. If a focus on grades erodes your child's natural curiosity, everyone loses, even if grades temporarily improve. If a tutor can ignite your child's love for learning, however, the long term benefits will be immeasurable.

Note: For new educators, a job at a homework help facility can be a great way to find out whether teaching is your passion; for retired teachers, a few hours of one-on-one coaching can be a great way to continue giving back.
