There are many organizations in the community such as a Learning Disabilities Association or Mental Health center that may offer tutoring free of charge or at a very nominal fee. Consult with these agencies if they are located in your area to find out what options you may have for your child or children.
Hiring a tutor is a large commitment. If you hire a tutor to help your child, make sure that you know his or her qualifications. Not all tutors have the same skills and education as a teacher does. Knowing the quality of their experience will help you to know if they are qualified to teach your child.
