You’re a parent with a child who is struggling in school. You know your child needs help. The classroom teacher has a half dozen other students with the same struggles, but does not have the time to sit down one on one with each one to give them the help they need. You realize you cannot give your child the help that he or she needs. So, you turn to a tutoring service. But, you want to make sure the tutor is proficient in the area where your child is struggling.
