How To Find a Tutor for Your Child
Nothing frustrates a parent more than watching your child fall behind in school. Tutoring is an option to get extra help that your child may need. Many different options are available for tutoring depending on the size of the town you live in.
Larger towns will have some of the national chains (like Sylvan Learning) but many times they are also very expensive. So what are some other options for tutoring? Here are a few places you can start your search.
Ask the guidance counselor at the school where your child attends for help in finding a tutor. They should have resources both for paid tutors and perhaps even options for you to get some help for no charge. They usually have a lot of knowledge and if they don’t know, they should be able to direct you to someone that does.
Another option is to ask your friends. They may already have someone tutoring their child and if not may know someone who does.
If you have a college in your area, take a trip to the student center. Ask in the student center where people go for academic help. Usually this will be a learning center and you should be able to get some information there.
Check your local newspaper / the student newspaper in your area.
