Question #1 How do I know if my child needs tutoring?
There are several situations in which tutoring can be very helpful. First of all, if you find your child saying, “I hate math,’ tutoring may be right for your family. Often, when a child dislikes a subject, it’s because he or she doesn’t fully understand the material. One-on-one tutoring efficiently cuts through a student’s confusion, which improves confidence, self-esteem, and grades.
Preparing for a standardized test is another situation in which tutoring makes a lot of sense. Studying and practicing for these tests can significantly improve a student’s score. Being prepared and learning specific-test taking strategies is also one of the most effective ways to reduce test-taking anxiety. Students who are disciplined enough to study on their own can benefit from having expert help and guidance when getting ready for standardized tests. Tutoring helps these students tackle the most difficult parts of the test and use their time more efficiently.
Finally, many families choose tutoring for gifted students who may not be properly challenged in school and who are hungry for intellectual stimulation.

Question #7 How much tutoring do you need?
Initially, it may take more than one tutoring session per week to get a student up to speed. Although cramming before a big test can be of some help, it is a much more effective strategy to keep up with the material well in advance of any tests. Our goal with the weekly sessions is to get the student ahead of the class so that when the teacher covers the material, it is more like a review. Therefore, the student is absorbing the material during class time and is able to ask important questions during the teacher’s lecture rather than having to go home and waste valuable time trying to figure out the material before starting any homework assignments. We find that by keeping the students ahead of the class, there is often improvement by at least one letter grade.
