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.

What are the signs my child may need a tutor?

Parents may consider using a tutor for a child who is struggling academically and in need of remediation to prevent academic problems, to supplement instruction at school, or to prepare for school/college exams. In making a decision whether to use tutoring services, parents, with the help of teachers and other school personnel, should carefully consider whether this option will result in measurable improvements in academic performance for the student.

Criteria for selecting a tutor

A new service 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 Tutor Doctor will assess learning styles, personality type, and tutor expectations.
