Recently, we have received a ton of tutoring calls and the first question many people ask is the cost or rates of tutoring, but really this should not be so important. In the long run the less expensive option is often more costly. Think about it, if you go with a tutor or tutoring company in which the teachers are not highly qualified, do not have the proper curriculum materials, do not challenge and motivate the students, then they will not succeed to their highest potential and you will end up having to pay for tutoring longer or more often to catch up with the time you lost from the poor quality tutoring.
Additionally, investing in a child’s education at a very early age will give them a leg up that can help establish good study habits, provide a strong foundation of academic skills in math/reading, and build a work ethnic that might be harder to develop later in their middle or high school years. Students who push themselves and earn the best grades will more likely earn scholarships that will save parents lots of money in the future.
I know this is a touchy subject, but it is an important one to address as some of my credentialed teachers have complained to me, “We are not valued. Education is not valued.” We will pay $100/hr for a personal training session and $80/hr for a plumber, but then we want to pay teachers $25/hr-$50. These are professionals that not only greatly impact our children’s lives and futures, but also typically have years of schooling and degrees. Does this make sense to you??? Just something to think about when you are considering the cost of tutoring. The cheapest or even cheaper options are often far from the best and in the long run will cost parents more money.

While focusing at home can be challenging, there are many things that parents can do to create a positive learning environment even with the Corona Virus. First, it is important to create a quiet, dedicated workplace away from distractions. The workspace should have materials such as textbooks, notebooks, pens, pencils, highlighters, worksheets, and laptop/ipad that students can access for online learning. It is important to consider the lighting as well as making sure the area is clean and neat so students can focus. Creating a structured time schedule and checklist can help students stay on track and feel productive. The schedule should include structured breaks to recharge and include movement. Some students may benefit from having classical music or other soft instrumental music.
Especially for younger students, the learning space should not contain toys, games and other items that could distract students.. Providing a comfortable area for students for students to read should also be created as reading will improve students writing and spelling as well as strengthen their imagination. Having plenty of books in addition to online resources is important.
It is important to maintain a regular schedule during even temporary homeschooling so that students can be most productive and get back into the regular routine of school once the virus settles down. Holding students accountable may be challenging but it will be important so that they will be prepared for the next grade.
