I find that every student learns differently. There is no one way to teach students', especially between k-6th grades. Tutoring can offer the one on one time that some student's need. My son was having a hard time with writing in first grade, I decided that I would sit down with him this summer one to one and work on what his strengths were and then work on his weakness. So far he has done great with his letters. I chose to work on his strengths first to give him confidence that he can do this. He was so happy that he was doing so many things well that he wasn't frustrated when we moved to things that were a little more challenging for him. Keep your child thinking positive about what they have accomplished, do not push too hard on what they need to improve. You should start to see better results.
