Chalk Talk: Should I Employ a Private Tutor?
It is worth it to employ a tutor if your child is in need of someone that has a specific area of academic expertise. As students are expected to become well versed in and have a better understanding of the subject, personalized assistance can be a major benefit. Meeting with your tutor can be conveniently arranged at the school, a local library, or at home, and students can even call or email them when needed. You tend to get much more information than expected when working individually with a tutor and they will go out of their way to make sure you have learned what you needed to know and can tell you how it applies to the subject at hand.
