Tutoring: A guide for parents

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. In making a decision whether to use tutoring services, parents, with the help of teachers and other school personnel, should consider whether this option will result in measurable improvements in academic performance for the student.

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.

How to find the right tutor

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 his/her full potential.
