Time to Change Tutors?

Tutors 315

Most parents expect to see results within a couple months of a tutor working with a child. When no progress is being made, you may be ready to call it quits. Before you do, consider these things.

1. Teamwork
Have the teacher and tutor been working together, talking about exactly the help your child needs?

2. Dynamics
Before making the decision to find a new tutor, consult with your child: Does he or she like working with the tutor? How helpful does the child feel the tutor has been?

3. Time
Some children may need a great deal of help in some subjects to catch up with the work being done in the classroom. In this case, progress will not be apparent immediately. Results of a good tutoring program should usually be seen in 10 to 20 weeks.
