We know -- tutoring can be a big investment! It's part of why so many parents choose to wait until their student is in high school to pay for help. Unfortunately, problems don't always start in upper level classes and it can be very hard to both catch up and keep up simultaneously. That doesn't mean those upper level kids are "beyond help" -- not at all! But it does mean that hiring a tutor to nip problems in the bud can be incredibly crucial.
Children who don't receive additional support early on can fall behind very quickly. School moves at such a fast pace today and so much is expected of such young students, having an outside resource simply makes the most sense. If your child is buckling under the pressure of homework in elementary school, the habits set up at age 8 will continue at age 18, so it's important to make sure they're good ones!
The confidence boost that comes from excelling is immeasurable. It takes time to get there but it's worth the investment!
