Chalk Talk: Choosing a Tutor
Oftentimes, independent tutors are college students looking for extra work, so they do not have as much experience. However, they may be great options, especially if they are majoring in education and have some experience working with children in an academic setting. These tutors may also have more flexible hours. Some schools districts might even offer free tutoring programs at which volunteer high school students tutor younger children—a great option if finances are very tight. One last factor is to look at is the availability of tutors. If parents simply seek a tutor to help their child sharpen some skills over the summer break, they can hire a tutor with seasonal availability. If tutoring is needed long-term, they should hire a tutor who is more reliable time-wise so that continuity can be established between the tutor and child.
