Chalk Talk: How to Determine If Your Child Can Benefit from Tutoring
If your child is feeling down about school, talk to your child's teacher about how your child is doing in class. If you are seeing a decrease in ability level through grades and assessments, conferencing with your child's teacher may give you an increased understanding of why your child is struggling. The teacher will also be able to communicate with you specific needs of your child, and where they see your child falling behind. At this point, a tutor may be the best option for you. Our tutors are able to pinpoint specific needs, and will be able to increase your child's educational progress.
