Does Your Child Need Tutoring?

Even with summer in full swing, many parents cannot take a vacation from worry. They are often caught between concerns about last year’s final report card and their child’s readiness for school in the fall. Not every child who is struggling academically needs summer school, but many parents are considering another option:  tutoring.  How do you know if your child can benefit from tutoring?

As any parent knows, what children say and what they mean are not always the same. Sometimes, “I’m stupid” really means, “I need help with school.” When children are having difficulty learning, parents often become frustrated because they don’t know where to turn or how to help their child. The staff at Huntington Learning Center offers the following guidelines to determine if your child needs tutoring.

At report card time or during parent-teacher conferences, a teacher or school counselor has indicated that your child is having difficulty in one or more subject areas.

Your child’s grades have been dropping regardless of how much time he or she spends on studying and doing homework.

Your child experiences extreme anxiety before tests and/or resists going to school in the morning.
Both physical and behavioral problems may be exhibited by a
child with learning difficulties.

Your child shows signs of lacking motivation and confidence, and loses interest in learning, even in a subject he or she used to enjoy.

Your child dreads going back to school in the fall.

Children who exhibit any of these warning signs may benefit from tutoring. The Newark Huntington Learning Center offers diagnostic testing, individualized instruction, and personal attention to help students build skills, confidence, and motivation.

Parents who want additional information are encouraged to call the Huntington Learning Center in Newark at 302-737-1150.

I just wanted to let you know that Courtney was offered a full tuition scholarship to Arcadia University. They told her that her ACT score was what really put her over the top…I know Courtney deserves the majority of the credit for all her hard work and dedication throughout her school career, and the extra effort she made this summer to take Huntington’s prep course and do additional homework over her break, but I really want to thank the teachers who worked with her and you, specifically, for suggesting she take the ACTS. I hadn’t ever considered that test, and no one at her school mentioned it either.
