When my oldest daughter was in high school she became sick between her sophomore and junior years. She missed almost the entire first half of her junior year and ended up having to drop her advanced classes. With the help of her understanding teachers, an at-home teacher and a tutor she was able to graduate on time.
Utilizing tutors was a new experience for her because she had never needed them in middle school when she was taking 4th grade math or 5th grade math. As she’s gotten older and realized the help that a tutor can provide she has no trouble taking advantage of it.
My oldest is now in college and she continues to use the expertise of tutors when she needs them. It can be the difference between a pass and fail grade.
