A student’s life is all about learning. Unfortunately, there are situations in life that may hinder the learning process of a student. Whenever a student is experiencing difficulty in a certain area such as math or reading, it is important that it be addressed immediately. According to studies, if a student is unable to achieve grade level reading from the third to fifth grades, then there is a high chance that he/she would never achieve grade level reading at all.

Tutoring is an effective way to address a student’s difficulty in learning. When a student is underperforming, there is a high chance that the student needs a private one-on-one tutoring. There are times when students are not suitable for a classroom setting that is why there are kids who are home schooled. But deciding whether a child needs tutoring can be difficult especially if the budget is tight or if the parent is unaware of his/her child’s learning difficulty. But when you do decide to get a tutor for your kid, here are some ways for you to do so.

  1. The School. The best way to find a tutor is to ask the child’s school. Most schools have a family resource center and there you would be able to find information of where to find a tutor, whether it’d be through the school’s system or through private companies. In fact, your child’s school may even have a tutoring program.
  2. Peer Tutors. There are also times when a child would not need another teacher as a tutor. Sometimes, he/she would be able to learn better from a peer tutor. A peer tutor could be from the same class who has gained mastery over a particular subject or an older student.
  3. Tutoring Agencies. There are plenty of private tutoring companies out there. The best part about choosing private tutoring companies is that you can be guaranteed that your child will receive a highly qualified tutor to help him/her out.
  4. Nonprofit Organizations. Sometimes the local university or the YMCA offers academic tutoring programs. These organizations would often employ high school or college students seeking to earn money by teaching younger kids. In your local area, these organizations may be the best choice for you to take if you value quality education as well as your budget.
