Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my child needs a tutor?

All students, even students who are doing well, can benefit from our tutoring. Is there one or more subject that you don’t want to teach? Is teaching all subjects proving to be stressful for you or your child? A “yes” answer to either of these questions indicates that tutoring can be especially useful. Our tutors can insure that your students have a solid foundation, and they can answer your child’s questions as well as your own. Our tutoring yields fantastic returns on your investment in your child's future. 

Can I have the tutoring at my convenience?

Yes. In order to provide the best tutor for your child, we ask you to give us the widest range possible regarding days and times available. Tutoring is available seven days a week at times that are convenient for you.   top

Will the tutor follow my guidelines or teach independently?

The short answer is “yes.” It’s your choice. The tutor can follow lesson plans provided by the parent or Education Specialist / Supervising Teacher, or the tutor will move forward with each lesson as he or she feels is appropriate. The tutor can give assignments for the student to do in between lessons or not. You get to choose.   top

How does the tutoring work?

Our professional tutors determine the students’ strengths and weaknesses. The tutors then address the weaknesses, using a step-by-step approach until the problems are resolved. To do this, the tutor uses your student’s curriculum. Drawing on their skills and experience, the tutors are constantly assessing and restructuring the lessons to make the sessions successful.   top 

My child isn’t motivated. Can tutoring help?

It certainly can. Sometimes a student gets into a downward spiral. He’s behind and feels discouraged, so he stops trying. This causes him to get further behind and more discouraged.  Our tutoring reverses this spiral. By working with the tutor, the student will see that he can do some of the work. This will lead to him feeling a little better about himself, working a little harder, achieving more, becoming more encouraged to work harder, and so on.   top

Can I have a different tutor if my child
and the tutor don’t connect well?
 

Yes. The professional relationship between the tutor and student is important for the student’s success. If at any time you feel that the tutor isn’t a good match for your child, just let us know and we’ll provide you with a more appropriate tutor.    top
