Signs Your Child or Young Adult Needs a Tutor
One of the big challenges in tutoring is the reluctance many parents have to recognizing the need for it. This is not a criticism; it is just part of being a good parent. Parents sometimes think their child can pull out of an academic slump on his/her own, or they themselves can correct the problem by spending more time with their child on homework or preparing for a test. In some cases, parents may not be able to see a problem at all, or the extent of it.
Professional tutoring from Grade Potential is the solution to overcoming academic problems:
- Grade Potential tutors are proficient subject matter experts in their field. They know what they are talking about!
- Grade Potential tutors are highly trained in teaching, enabling them to effectively communicate their knowledge and motivate your child to learn.
- Grade Potential tutors conduct their tutoring sessions in your home, which is enormously convenient for you and conducive to your child’s learning.
How do you, as a parent, know when your child needs a tutor? Here are some things to look for:
- Declining grades.
- Teachers noticing a drop in your child’s motivation or negative change in attitude.
- When your child is not interested in going to school.
- When your child becomes reluctant to discuss school or a particular class.
- When your child constantly needs to be poked or prodded to do homework for a particular subject, or in general.
- When your child seems to be spending too much time on homework.
- When your child has difficulty explaining subjects he/she is learning or are supposed to have learned.
In all of these situations, there could be something going on in addition to or instead of being challenged academically, but in many cases, they are symptomatic of just that. When children or young adults struggle in school or test preparation, they can quickly lose confidence and become frustrated. When this happens, they may tend to lose interest in school, and begin to fall into a downward cycle of losing interest in other things as well.
Why Grade Potential Tutoring?
Because Grade Potential tutors are skilled in their subjects and teaching, they give your child the best of both worlds — knowledge and motivation. Gaining the knowledge to pass a test or a class is a good thing in itself, but when a child or young adult is motivated to learn, it can be an attitude that lasts a lifetime — one that can make the difference between a successful and unsuccessful career.
Grade Potential also conducts careful, thorough background checks on all of our tutors, so that you are getting only the most qualified people to work with your family.
Grade Potential is a national tutoring organization, and everyone on our staff is committed to helping your child succeed at school. Our customer service team is the best in the business. When you have questions about scheduling, billing or any other issue, you will be talking to a customer service professional whose only interest is getting you a satisfactory answer as quickly as possible.
Speaking of scheduling, all Grade Potential tutoring is done in your home. Our goal is for your child’s tutoring experience to be fruitful, but also convenient. We know how busy you are, and with Grade Potential, you won’t have to juggle family schedules to get your child to and from a remote tutoring session.
In-home tutoring is also very conducive for an effective learning experience. Some children (and even young adults) are distracted or physically uncomfortable in an off-site setting. In contrast, the home is a comfortable, safe environment where your child can focus on the problem at hand — mastering a subject or preparing for a test.
