Some thoughts on tutoring….
I feel that it is important when setting up tutoring for your child, there needs to be clear goals set between the tutor and the parent. When will the parent/tutor meet to discuss progress? How will the progress be documented? How will it be decided that tutoring will end, or, the focus will change to a new topic?
Tutoring a child with an academic need is different than tutoring for enrichment. When a tutor is working with a child due to falling behind in a particular subject, it is extremely important that the classroom teacher is also part of the team. If what is being worked on with the tutor is not being transferred by the student into the classroom, then instruction would need to change.
