We engaged a tutor to help with physics and pre-calculus. In our case it was a matter of helping review material that was being covered very quickly at school. We needed things to be explained more fully and presented in a new way, because sometimes learning styles don’t match the school teacher’s teaching style. The tutor was wonderful at all of this, helping to cover those bits missed during the week and hone in on problem areas we didn’t even know about. Engaging a tutor also helped us see the issues and set up a study schedule for the rest of the week that really worked. My child’s goal was to achieve an A and she did that with much hard work and guidance. Our greatest benefit was seeing her confidence return, along with her independence in the subjects.
