My son was doing well in most of his classes, but it seemed as if he was struggling with English literature. That surprised me, since he had done well with the other English electives. After talking the matter over with the teacher, I decided to see if tutoring would help.
This was easily the best decision I ever made. We found a tutor who was able to help my son gain an interest in the reading material. By making it fun, reading and comprehending what was on the page became easier. It wasn't long before he was participating in class discussions and coming up with interesting angles for essays.
If your child is having difficulty with a school subject, let me tell you about our experience with the tutor. You may find this is the right solution for your child too.
