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.
