How Tutors Can Help
Improve Student's
Performance

Some students do not face major difficulties with school but need homework help. They may need help writing papers or working through math problems. Some students feel more comfortable working with a tutor than with their parents on these regular assignments. David Kahn, who was interviewed by Rosen for Scholastic, says that students often listen more to tutors because they act as a referee, someone to guide without judgment or emotional baggage. The tutor may be able to help your child develop basic study habits and homework strategies that he or she can use in their higher educations.

Individualized, 
Customized Learning 
Plans

While choosing to hire a tutor can have a tremendous impact on one's academic performance, finding the right person for the job is crucial for success. Finding a tutor or tutoring program that compliments your child's needs is essential. Keep in mind how you or your student interact with peers and adults, as well as how he or she learns best. Using a type of tutoring that is geared towards the way your teen learns can also help him or her build confidence while learning.

Different Students 
Require Different
Approaches to Learning

Many people recognize that each person prefers different learning styles and techniques. Learning styles group common ways that people learn. Everyone has a mix of learning styles. Some people may find that they have a dominant style of learning, with far less use of the other styles. Others may find that they use different styles in different circumstances. There is no right mix. Nor are your styles fixed. You can develop ability in less dominant styles, as well as further develop styles that you already use well.
