No parent wants to see their child struggle, particularly when talk turns to school, school work and ultimately kids who can't seem to make the grade.
The moms and dads who are concerned spend the majority of their time troubleshooting what actually is holding their child back. Could it be other students? Bullying? Maybe, they're just not engaged with the teacher or they simply might not understand the subject matter being presented.
In the case of the last item, parents tend to begin scouring their neighborhood or area for a suitable tutor for their kids, one that can help them outside of school hours and beyond what they learn from the teacher. Students who don't immediately connect with a teacher or their specific style might benefit exponentially from having someone different, who isn't in the front of the room, delivering information that they can grasp just from a different source. The information is the same but who is delivering makes a big difference.
So how exactly do parents find a worthwhile tutor?
Finding the right tutor can be difficult. Do you go with someone younger, closer in age to your child? How about an experienced, older person who is perhaps a retired teacher? While the answer often isn't right in front of your face, selecting a tutor that works often becomes more trial and error rather than an exact science.
