Tutoring: A guide for parents

Successful students usually have parents who are involved in school programmes and carefully monitor their child's progress. Children who read well in the early grades are more successful in later years; those who fall behind rarely catch up with their classmates. As parents, you want to support and help your child attain good grades and strong academic skills. At times, this may mean finding a tutor to help your child.

Criteria for selecting a tutor

The decision to seek out the services of a tutor is one that should be considered carefully. The main considerations are tutor qualifications, cost and convenience.

Now a new service being provided by Tutor Doctor can take the pain out of finding the right tutor to meet your individual needs. Tutor Doctor tutors undergo a thorough vetting process before joining and hold qualifications in the subjects they teach. All academic subjects are catered for and Tutor Doctor tutors work with students of all ages, from primary school right through second and third level.

The Tutor Doctor service begins with a free, no obligation consultation during which the needs of the student are assessed. As well as determining the problem areas, the education consultant will assess learning styles, personality type and your expectations. This information is used to find the best tutor to help the student reach their full potential.

What should you expect from a tutor?

If you feel your child is struggling academically or in need of enrichment activities to enhance skills, seek help. Hiring a tutor to provide additional instruction to your child can be a significant contribution to your child's education.
