How Can a Tutor Help?
Sometimes parents have a personality conflict with their child’s teacher. It seems like whatever they do, the teacher always seems to want something different. Many parents will request that their child be transferred to a different teacher. If the problem is severe, some parents will move their children to a private school. But changing teachers mid-year can be difficult for an elementary school student. Kids get attached to their primary teachers. They are almost like a mom to many kids. Going to a whole new school is particularly disturbing for kids since they lose all their friends. More can be found here.
Rather than all that disruption, sometimes all parents need to find an excellent elementary school tutor. During their working years, many elementary tutors become familiar with the teachers in the local schools. The elementary tutor may already know this particular teacher and what she expects from her students. Learn more about the Skills of an Elementary School Tutor.
Or maybe it isn’t even the teacher – maybe it’s the teacher’s teaching style. An elementary tutor can employ a different style and help the child thrive. Or a tutor can teach the child how to interact with that particular teacher – certainly a life skill anyone needs to learn!
