"Unlike classroom teachers, tutors are able to adapt to my child’s learning style and teach at her pace.”
To perform well, you must practice well.

Different Students Require Different
Approaches to Learning
Every student is unique in his or her gifts and talents. As well, everyone assimilates new knowledge at differing rates.
Individual tutoring has the potential with the right tutor to bring a customization to that uniqueness that cannot be achieved in a conventional classroom setting.
Face-to-Face Tutoring is Superior to Online Tutoring
Supplemental use of online resources for additional practice and enrichment definitely have a place and value. I use them and encourage my students to use them; however, I find that students enjoy working with a human being that really cares enough to take the time to explain a concept three different ways and three different times if necessary.
The experiences and data are pouring in that supports the need for face-to-face instruction and tutoring.
Face-to-face tutoring can make the difference for students in, dare I say it, the majority of situations. Yes, I dare. My personal observation as a math tutor has been overwhelmingly that students from one end of the spectrum to the other benefit from fact-to-face tutoring.
"This trend can be seen vividly in one study of developmental math courses where withdrawal rates were two to three times higher in the online sections and in another where completion rates were higher in the on-campus (80%) versus the online (61%) sections.
Withdrawal rates were roughly twice as high in fully online courses; Regardless of academic subject of the course, demographics, or academic background, students performed more poorly in a fully-online course than in a face-to-face course."
