Identify specific problems that is keeping your kid at bay. Once you know what is the problem and difficulties your kid is undergoing you will be able to know when to acquire the service of a tutor or tutor your beloved kid yourself.

2. If you think your kid need a tutor see to it that the tutor you are going to tap is expert and fully armed with necessasry skills and knowledge. Know the learning preference of your kids and share this to his potential tutor. Is your kid is more of a visual, kinesthetic or auditory learners, know this first before letting anybody tutor him so that success with the endeavor of tapping a tutor will spur success. Additionally, your prospective tutors or you if you don't feel like hiring one must know how to cover bases, meaning you know how to eased ot any weaknesses your kid have.

      Good hub! My daughter starting tutoring 6th grade math when she was in 8th grade & continued on through HS. She worked closely with both the student's teacher and the student. She loved it. I think student to student tutors really help.

      One thing that I recommend is that your kid and your prospective tutor spend some time together to see if they will gel together. Otherwise, a great hub, GH. Thanks for all the advice!
