Tutors are more popular now than ever before. The methods used to teach our children are far different than how we learned several years ago.
Attempting to teach a child at home today can be a real challenge when our lingo and approach seems to be a foreign language to them. However, a qualified tutor can both explain a subject in current terms, and provide the teaching patience that many families are looking for.
But how do parents go about finding the best tutor for their child? A number of tutor services exist today that match qualified personal tutors, trained in one or several subjects, with the student in need. However, these services and respective tutors can vary greatly in price and the subjects they teach.
Before you hire a tutor for your child, you should consider the following:
Focus. Which age groups and learning subjects does the company provide tutoring for?
Location. Will the tutoring occur at your home, at a separate location, or online?
Cost. What is the cost of the tutoring service?
