Students of every age, from first grade to high school, often benefit from the help of a skilled academic tutor. If your child is struggling with a particular subject in school, an academic tutor may be able to provide the specific guidance they need. A tutor can help your child with everything from math and science to reading and writing.

An academic tutor usually focuses on building concrete skills and helping students with what is immediately required to keep up with schoolwork. A tutor can also help your child prepare for specific tests and exams, usually based on their expertise in the subject matter. A good tutor is able to zero in on the specific skills that are giving your child trouble. A math tutor, for example, may focus on multiplication or division.

Many academic tutors are current or retired teachers, who either work independently or as part of a commercial tutoring program. Often, they charge by the hour and will see your child over a period of weeks or months. Sometimes high school students will serve as tutors of younger children.
