The new school year doesn’t have to mean frustration. Tutoring services offer a big help, especially when tutors tailor learning to your individual child’s needs and interests. That might mean bridging gaps or extending content further than classroom curricula. If your child struggles to stay organized, needs to know how to prepare for an upcoming test, or just wants homework help, these tutoring companies can help provide both academic and executive functioning support. Here are some places to start, but don’t hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher for feedback on what he or she sees in the classroom, too!
