Tutoring resources

Tutoring services Tutoring services aim to provide supplemental instruction for students outside of school. Since most students do not absorb every lecture they sit through, some may need more thorough guidance once they are alone. The good news is that there are plenty of websites to choose from.

The process entails a qualified tutor with extensive teaching experience meeting with a student. The student must specify the subjects they need assistance in. During a tutoring session, a tutor helps the student with their assignments and then they review past and upcoming lessons together.

A good thing about tutoring services is that they ensure that the student fully understands all the material. In a classroom, a teacher cannot give their undivided attention to a single student. Contrastingly, a student will be closely watched over by the tutor. This guarantees that proper learning is customized to fit a particular student’s needs.

The downside to tutoring is that there is no guarantee that the tutor assigned to you is qualified enough. Some just conduct tutoring for money and don’t actually care if the student is learning or not. Another is that the student might develop some level of dependency on the tutor. Spoon-feeding is another problem that might arise from tutoring. Instead of guiding students, some tutors give all the answers to their students. This does not help their students to develop proper thinking skills.

Here is a brief list of sites to refer to if you are in need of tutoring services.

SylvanLearning.com mostly caters to children’s tutoring needs. They assess each student and determine the academic area where the child needs the most help. Then they develop a unique and customized learning plan that addresses the child’s specific needs. But their services don’t stop there. They also conduct continuous evaluations and program updates so that learning is interminable. Online and in-school tutoring services are also available.

CrownTutoring.com offers students online tutoring assistance in various subjects. From Social Sciences to languages, this site has it covered. In addition to tutoring in school subjects, Crown Tutoring assists students in test preparation. It also provides courses on how to improve important skills like time management, test taking, note-taking, among others.

Care.com is another tutoring service that assists students in need of extra support. However, the user should look through the tabs carefully before finding the relevant tutoring services, as the site is mostly about care. The site offers traditional tutoring services.

HuntingtonHelps.com offers various tutoring services such as developing a student’s academic skills in a variety of subjects. They also provide tutoring in technical subjects such as physics, calculus, earth science, biology, etc. while catering to students at all academic levels. However, be aware that Huntington is a tutoring center and does not offer online services. If you want to use their services, check the site to find for the closest center to you.

Finally, TutorVista.com is an online tutoring provider that caters to students from all over the world. It has an interactive whiteboard where sessions are conducted. This provides convenience for students who do not have the time to travel to tutoring centers. The company offers assistance in math, English, physics, chemistry, science, and biology.
