Students are exposed to so many different topics in school that challenge their thinking and broaden their understanding of the world. It can be hard to keep everything straight. Working with a tutor can reinforce key concepts and bridge gaps in learning so that your child can build a strong foundation and master essential skills.  But it can be hard to know where to start or what to look for when choosing a tutor.

Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when comparing your options.

  • Experience and course offerings.

You want to ensure that the tutor is well-versed in the content areas for which your child is seeking help. The learning specialists at Crafting Scholars are bachelor- and master-level trained educators, and they have degrees in a wide range of subjects to effectively meet the needs of students. In addition to content tutoring, they are also trained to work with students on other skills including organization, studying, time management, and test taking.

  • Ability to meet your child’s unique needs.

Tutoring should be aligned with areas where your child demonstrates need and lack of understanding. Ask about how the tutor determines what concepts to cover, how they assess learning, and how they adjust to your child’s learning style.

Crafting Scholars works closely with teachers regarding what topics they are currently teaching and how the child is performing. We offer several diagnostic exams to gain a better understanding of where there are gaps in your child’s knowledge and how they learn best. This data is used to create a custom curriculum to maximize results and zero in on their specific areas of need. Lessons are designed with your child’s learning style in mind to help them connect with and recall information.

  • Flexible scheduling

In order for tutoring to be effective, it needs to be accessible and work with your schedule. Does your child learn better when working one-on-one with an instructor in person or online? Crafting Scholars offers both options so that families can choose what works best for them.

Tutoring can be done online from anywhere as long as your child has a computer and reliable Internet access, but they also have the option of hands-on instruction at the learning center in Charlotte, NC. We have flexible hours to fit the schedule of students who are in public school, private school, virtual school, and those who are homeschooled.

  • Strong connection

You want your child to feel comfortable with and trust their tutor. The tutor should be able to build a positive rapport and connect with your child to promote their learning. At Crafting Scholars, we carefully match students with a learning specialist that complements their needs and learning style. Your child will work with the same specialist throughout their sessions to maintain consistency and continuity of learning.
