Characteristics and Credentials to Consider in Choosing a Tutor
By Kathy Stemke
If your child is reluctant to talk about their progress in school, or "they're hiding their report card," it may be time to look for a tutor. You may think that you do not have the time or resources to hire a tutor, but it will require more time and be much more expensive if you wait. One of the biggest mistakes that parents make is waiting too long to intervene.
For instance, in most subjects, especially math, the student must have the beginning concepts mastered in order to understand and succeed in the next. By waiting too long, the student develops learning gaps, which cause the entire learning structure to collapse.
