30 Jun What does specialist tutoring mean?
Employment of a specialist tutor to help your child overcome his/her learning challenges means that you employ an individual to work on a 1:1 basis with your child either inside the home or in side the classroom. Ideally this would be a person that would work with your child daily for an hour of two every day.
Tutoring is different to therapy. Therapy can be elective and done on an as-and-when basis during the course of the week whereas a specialist tutor will need to work with your child on reading, writing or mathematics on a daily basis.
