A: Yes! In fact I highly recommend this! In most cases the parent will have to sign an information release in order to discuss student information with someone other than a parent or guardian.
The best chances for student success happen when the student, parent, teacher, and tutor, work in concert to help the student meet academic goals. All play an important part in this process, not just the student and tutor. When Tutors and teachers work together, study is streamlined, not going off in different directions.
As with any worthwhile goal in life, working smarter, not harder, using the correct tools will achieve the results we want for ourselves and our children!
