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.
