Tutoring is often an important part of a student’s education. A tutor is someone who generally works with a student to provide remedial, enrichment, or other support. Tutors can help students who are working to get into college, assist the beginning reader, help a struggling student understand difficult math concepts, or provide more in-depth instruction for a pupil looking for greater knowledge in a particular subject.
The most familiar role of a tutor is one in which the tutor provides remedial assistance. Because a good education is so important, especially in today’s society, many parents hire tutors to help their children catch up or keep up in school subjects where they are having difficulties and have fallen behind their peers. Tutors can help a student in one or many subjects depending upon the child’s needs and the tutor’s expertise.
A tutor can also benefit a child who is considered gifted. By providing enrichment activities, the tutor can instruct a student who excels in school to look at subjects on a deeper level. Often this is based on the child’s interests and talents. For example, a child who does very well in reading at school may work with a tutor to pursue reading practices beyond what is being taught at the child’s current grade level. The student may work with a tutor to read more complicated books and stories and do a more in-depth analysis of what has been read.
