Top Ten Signs that Tutoring is Needed



10 – You see the second marking period report card and are not pleased with the results or the second marking period report card never makes it to the house.
9 – You hear the words, “I give up” from your child or you think very strongly that “you want to give up."
8. – You get phone calls from the teacher that your child missed the test or failed a test.
7. You get phone calls from the teacher saying that your child is not doing homework.
6. – You get phone calls from the teacher saying that your child is missing or refuses to do the project for the marking period
5– You get phone calls that your child is late or absent.
4- When you talk to your child about what is happening at school they say, “Nothing.” You notice that your child never opens his/her notebook at home nor is he or she willing to go on the Internet to research answers.
3- Your child’s textbook makes a sound when you open it. The binding looks brand, spanking new.
2-Your child’s grades start to fall even when you receive a progress report from the teacher.
1- You never get any mail from school. Your child’s friends have progress reports, know when the next parent association meeting is, are aware of their child’s grades, know the address for their teacher’s blogs, know the address for the school’s blog, and are aware of the phone numbers of all the key people to help their children move successfully from one grade to the next.
