Both parent and tutor need to understand that when a student requires help, the issue, may not be about the subject matter, but about the development of learning skills that allow the student to "get it." After all--mom, or dad, your child probably learned to speak quite efficiently and quickly, without much help or fuss. The same learning skills in older children need to be unleashed so that school work CAN BE SEEN (BY THE STUDENT) as challenging and pleasurable rather than being a negative situation.
If, after the first session, a student or parent decides they are not satisfied with the session, I will not bill for the session, and will graciously terminate the relationship.
As someone who has tutored many students of all ages, and has taught in the classroom from kindergarten through elementary school, as well as in college, my experience has been that I am usually able to sufficiently adjust my teaching methods to enable most students to achieve a positive learning experience.
How can I help? What are the issues? I am most willing to engage in a phone call prior to any commitment on either side.
Looking forward to communicating with you in order that we might determine if there is a "fit."
Your friendly tutor,
