As a parent, you know that nothing is more frustrating than not knowing what to do. It’s possible that your child may need additional help that we as parents are not able to provide. A professional tutor may be the answer you have been looking for. Here are some signs that your child may need tutoring.

10 Signs Your Child Needs Help

  1. Your child’s teacher or school counselor recommends it. This may happen at a parent-teacher conference. It may also occur when progress reports are issued, or at report card time.
  2. Your child’s grades start to fall independent of how hard he or she seems to be working, where before they were improving or holding steady.
  3. No matter how long your child spends on homework, it’s neither complete nor accurate. This may indicate a lack of basic skills or a weakness in a specific academic area.
  4. Caught in a cycle of frustration and failure, your child shows an increasing lack of confidence and motivation.
  5. Your child has lost interest in learning.
  6. Your child experiences extreme anxiety before tests and exams.
  7. Your child is reluctant to go to school, fearing failure and criticism from others.
  8. Your child’s teacher reports that he or she is acting out, becoming a behavior problem in class.
  9. Your child says, “I’m too stupid. I’ll never understand this stuff.”
  10. Your child says, “I give up.” Or, worse, you hear yourself saying it.

Professional learning centers, such as Huntington, can provide help. Seek out tutoring and give your child the chance he/she deserves.
