A Parent's Guide to Tutors and Tutoring: How to Support the Unique needs of Your Chil

A Parent's Guide to Tutors and Tutoring: How to Support the Unique needs of Your Child

A Parent's Guide to Tutors and Tutoring offers a survival guide for helping parents decide whether or not to hire a tutor; advice for choosing the right person; and ideas for evaluating if the job is well done. In addition, the book includes suggestions for selecting a tutor for kids with special needs and shows what it takes to tutor for an individual child's unique weaknesses and strengths.

Praise for A Parent's Guide to Tutors and Tutoring:

"James Mendelsohn understands how tutoring and education must fit the unique core nature of every child. His ideas, methods, and techniques are brilliant and can make a big positive impact on improving your child's success in school and in life."
—Michael Gurian, author, The Minds of Boys, Boys and Girls Learn Differently, and Nurture the Nature

"This book shows parents how to avoid the stress and pressure of competition and instead pay attention to what our individual kids really need for success at school and in life."
—Michele Borba, Ed.D., author, Parents Do Make a Difference and Building Moral Intelligence

"Dr. Mendelsohn has written a wonderful book that is a great gift and resource to any parent struggling with the question of whether—and if so, how—to tutor their kid. For them, it is a must-read."
—Alvin Rosenfeld, M.D., coauthor, The Over-Scheduled Child

"If you are lucky, you might find a tutor like Dr. Mendelsohn. Reading this book should certainly be your first step."
—Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., educational psychologist and author, Your Child's Mind and Endangered Minds
