A tutor is a teacher or instructor who gives private lessons in a particular topic or field. Often, parents seek the help of a tutor if their child is having difficulty with one or more subjects at school. Also, a tutor could help with extracurricular learning, for instance, with a musical instrument, or sport skills. Typically tutors work independently, and outside of the school setting. They can work in a tutoring center, or, often, will come to a child's home. The cost of a tutor can vary greatly depending on the subject, the tutor’s credentials and experience, and the amount of time needed for tutoring. It's important to note that individuals can become tutors without specific training, so asking for information about their experience, and even references, can help you choose the right tutor for your needs. Is your child having difficulties with a certain subject at school? Or are you simply looking to enrich the learning they are doing during the day with extra time with a tutor? Would your child benefit from additional practice in sports, music, or art? Hiring a tutor might be a great solution, and we can help you find options within your community.

Blumenfeld, first available 38 years ago has without change, continued to be an outstanding resource to teach the Three R's. It has not changed because it works so well. Its methodology is timeless!!

(2) His effective CURSIVE HANDWRITING program and (3) his equally effective ARITHMETIC PROGRAM. Has been used by 100,000's parents, teachers and tutors. Mary Pride, leading homeschooling materials reviewer, calls it a best value. 298 pages. How To Tutor works at ALL ages. Anyone who can read can teach the 3 R's with it. WHY IS HOW TO TUTOR IMPORTANT? Dr. Blumenfeld warns: Most parents wait until their child is having difficulty at school before they think of providing remediation. Sometimes the child is so far behind, so confused, so frustrated by not learning in the first two grades, that the remedial program looks long and difficult. However, proper tutoring at the preschool level or in the first two grades, as a preventive measure, can make sure that the child has the foundation on which to build achievement. How To Tutor provides parents and teachers with a complete instructional program: step-by-step lesson plans in the Three R's. It originally was to help public school students. Since then the continued decline in many public schools made HOMESCHOOLING much more important. Homeschool families discovered what a gem this book is for them. HERE ARE THE THREE SECTIONS: PART (1) READING: The big problem in schooling today. How To Tutor shows how to avoid the confusion in teaching reading that prevails in our schools today. 117 complete lessons. Contains everything you need to teach your student to be a top reader. You learn the dirty little secret professional educators keep from you: It is really EASY TO TEACH READING! There are only 44 sounds (Phonograms) you need to teach your student to build a high level of reading skill. PART (2) CURSIVE HANDWRITING: Many Parents and Grandparents today are often shocked to learn that in many schools cursive is not taught. With How To Tutor you are given all the tools you need to teach this important skill with ease. Here is another little secret: Cursive can be taught BEFORE printing (ball & stick). There are only THREE basic strokes involved in cursive handwriting. Most children can learn these at a surprisingly early age. Learning about this will amaze you. 73 complete lessons. PART (3) ARITHMETIC: Quoting Dr. Blumenfeld: In teaching arithmetic it is important to convey the genius of the system itself. Next to the alphabet, it is the greatest mental tool ever devised by man. We should approach the subject with the excitement it deserves. Any teacher who makes arithmetic dull does so because he does not understand its beautiful simplicity, logic and facility which permit us to do so much with so little. HTT Arithmetic covers addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, weights, time, and the calendar. Everything up to just before geometry and algebra.

The Tutor

Master of psychological suspense Peter Abrahams returns with an ingenious tale of an ordinary family that unknowingly invites the agent of their destruction into their own home. When Scott and Linda Gardner hire Julian Sawyer to tutor their troubled teenage son Brandon, he seems like the answer to a prayer. Capable and brilliant, Julian connects with Brandon in a way neither of his parents can. He also effortlessly helps Linda to salvage a troubled business deal and gives Scott expert advice on his tennis game. Only eleven-year old Ruby—funny, curious, devoted to Sherlock Holmes—has doubts about the stranger in their midst who has so quickly become like a member of the family. But even the observant Ruby is far from understanding Julian’s true designs on the Gardners. For Julian, the Gardners are like specimens in jars, creatures to be studied— and manipulated. Scott is a gambler with no notion of odds, festering in the shadow of his more successful brother. Linda is ambitious, hungry for the cultured stimulation Julian easily provides. Brandon is risking his future late at night in the town woods. And Ruby—well, she’s just a silly little girl. And in that miscalculation lies the Gardner family’s only possible salvation. In The Tutor, Peter Abrahams creates a living, breathing portrait of an American family, their town, their secrets, their dreams—and a portrait just as compelling of the menace they welcome into their home. It is his most chilling, suspenseful novel to date. From the Hardcover edition.

Foundations of Intelligent Tutoring Systems

This collection of essays -- each of which treats an integral aspect of the field -- defines several key concepts and their interrelationships, outlines basic research issues, and discusses near-term applications projects. The book examines three foundations of ITSs in detail -- expert, student diagnostic, and instructional or curricular knowledge -- and describes: * How they are embodied in computer-assisted instructional environments * How these systems accrue the advantages of advanced computer interface technologies * How ITSs will emerge in the real world of complex problem solving * How researchers must learn to evaluate the effectiveness and overall quality of these dynamic systems in a world where machine tutoring may one day be taken for granted. Justine Wise Polier (1903-1987) was educated at Bryn Mawr, Radcliffe, and Barnard. She earned her law degree from Yale Law School where she was editor of the Yale Law Journal.

Following her retirement from the bench, she served as the director of the Juvenile Judge division of the Children's Defense Fund. During her illustrious career, Judge Polier was the recipient of numerous awards including: the Citation for Distinguished Service to the City of New York, 1973; the Human Services Award from the New York and Bronx Mental Health Association, 1973; the Eleanor Roosevelt Humanitarian Award from the Board of Directors of Wiltwyck School, 1975.

Learning Together

Peer Tutoring in Higher Education

The number of students in higher education has expanded dramatically in recent years, but funding has not kept pace with this growth. The result is less contact time for lecturers and their students, and corresponding worries about how the quality of teaching and learning can be improved. Peer tutoring is one method which is growing in popularity, and has already proved successful in a number of countries. This book provides an introduction to the methods and practice of peer tutoring focusing on how to set up schemes and how to cope with common problems. It discusses the theory behind this form of learning and the beneficial effects associated with it. Summaries are included at the end of each chapter.
