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.

Parents may consider using a tutor for a child who is struggling academically and in need of extra assistance, to supplement instruction at school, or to prepare for school/college exams.

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.

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.
