Why Invest in a Tutor?

I'm often asked "Why should my child work with a tutor?"  In my experience as a professional educator, tutoring helps students make significant improvements in their reading and writing.    The child who is just starting to read or struggles in the classroom is often the child who does not want to raise his or her hand in front of others.    I've seen students who were unfocused and resistant to learning blossom when they receive tutoring.   Why?  Tutoring targets the instruction to the student as an individual.  It addresses learning difficulties and challenges in a positive environment.
