Why do parents seek the help of a tutor?

Parents seek assistance when they clearly see a need to support their child. Sometimes they want support in an academic area that they don’t feel prepared to provide support on their own. Sometimes they want to distance themselves from their child while they are working on their homework. This will allow them to continue to be a parent, and not a teacher. Those of us who have children know the struggle. It is a very real thing.

Is this a sign of weakness? Absolutely not. It is a sign that you care about your child and that you want find support for them.

There are many kinds of tutors. Some tutors are in high school and they have a talent in a certain area. They have the time to give to someone else. Other people have trained in a particular area, and can provide support.

Speaking for myself, I am a teacher. I have had many years working with children. I know that each child learns in their own way. I know that some children can work for an hour straight and do multiple activities during that time. Other students need time to visit before they start to work. They can do a few practice activities and then they need a quick mental break.

In my opinion, it takes someone who is a trained educator to really understand those nuances.

If you would like to visit about your child’s needs, be sure to click on the link and submit the form. I will get back to you and we can do a consultation. I look forward to hearing from you!
