Choose Good Tuition Centres

Are you searching for good tuition centres? There are many approved tuition Agency in Singapore. Do you know which one is good? How is the learning environment? Are the tutors there patience enough to help my children? Well, I believe these are the questions that most parents will ask when looking for a tuition centre in Singapore.

Below, we are going to look at a few points of what make good tuition centres!

1) Do the tutors always ask for any feedback?
Good tutors from reputable tuition centres will always ask their students for any feedback. Tutor who asks for response will usually be someone who is more responsible and have the wiliness to help the students. Besides, it is very difficult for students to learn by themselves. If the tutor is able to help the student to find the problems easily, they can solve the problems faster and able to proceed on to the next level.

2) What is the qualification of the tutor?
Parents must first be very comfortable with the tutor who they handed their child to learn from. This is extremely important as the final grade of your children will be greatly dependable by the tutor-in-charge. Most of the tutor / teacher in Singapore should hold at least a graduate certificate of Education from MOE - Ministry of Education of Singapore. It is important as teachers with the correct certificate are well trained to handle students in their study.

3) Is there any tuition centres nearby to your house?
Yes! If your child can save on the travelling time going to the tuition centre, he/she can greatly use the precious time to do revision for his/her homework. Thus, it is a good advice to find tuition centres where they are located within your living surrounding. - Probably 5-10mins walking distance to your house.

4) Does those tuition centres help to revise on the exam papers?
Inorder to help your child gain more confidence on handling the coming 'O'-levels, 'A'-levels examinations, do ask the tutors how they offer to help the students prepare for it! In fact, students who have done well in their studies are those who are very familiar with the exam syllabus. They must be confident enough to complete each exam paper on time and with the most correct answers.

1. What do you charge? Fees can range anywhere from $15-$75/hour. Usually at the lower end of the scale are people without degrees or teaching credentials. They could also be high school or college students looking to earn some additional income. Depending on their academic knowledge and their ability to explain things, these less expensive tutors may or may not be a good match for your child. At the upper end of the scale are people with advanced degrees (Masters and Doctorates) as well as college professors. Again, just because they look good on paper and charge a lot of money doesn't mean they are the best tutors. What you are looking for is someone your child can relate to and understand, someone who explains things in different ways until your child "gets it." Feel lucky if you can find a certified teacher who has a good rapport with your child that charges anywhere between $20-$40/hour.

2. What is the length of a session, and how often should the student meet with you? To be the most effective, tutors should meet with students 2-3 times a week. Sessions can range from 1/2 hour to 2 hours, depending on the age of your child. Very young children have short attention spans and should meet more often but for shorter periods of time. High school students can focus for up to two hours if the tutor varies the activities and keeps the discussions lively. Even if students are attending 2 hour sessions, they should still meet with a tutor at least twice a week. By only meeting once a week, students are not able to get enough feedback about the material they are covering and do not have the consistency they need to succeed in their problem areas.

3. How long have you been tutoring? Tutors who have at least one year of experience have had time to work out the kinks in their systems. That's not to say that tutors just starting out won't be excellent teachers for your student, especially if they have previous experience as teachers. However, novice tutors probably haven't worked out their billing system or their cancellation policy or other types of business matters. They may not have as many resources available to them as tutors who have been in business longer. Conversely, just because a tutor has 20 years of experience doesn't mean he/she will be a good match for your child. Sometimes older tutors get set in their ways and have difficulty adjusting their system to new material or children with problems focusing. Making sure your student gets along with the tutor is one of the most important factors in ensuring the relationship is a successful one.

4. Are you a certified teacher? Certified teachers have had to pass minimum competency exams in their areas of expertise. So you can be sure that a certified teacher has a certain basic knowledge of educational concepts and at least some level of proficiency in his/her subject areas. Generally teachers are either certified as elementary (covering grades K-8) or secondary (covering grades 6-12). As you can see, the certifications overlap at grades 6-8, the middle school years. So teachers with either elementary or secondary certifications would be qualified to tutor these grade levels. Depending on the age of your child, you want to try to get a teacher with the appropriate certification. That's not to say a teacher with a secondary certification can't help an elementary student or vice versa. It's just that teachers with an elementary certification have had specialized training dealing with younger children whereas teachers with a secondary certification have had more opportunity to focus on more difficult subject matter.

5. How do you handle kids with learning problems like ADHD and dyslexia? Teachers should be aware that students with learning difficulties often require different strategies than students who have not been diagnosed with these challenges. Tutors should be able to outline some of their specific strategies for helping your child based on what his/her problem happens to be. For example, what do they do when your ADHD daughter just can't seem to focus? What kind of approach would they take with helping your dyslexic son learn to read? You need to make sure that tutors are sensitive to these types of learning issues and have strategies in place to deal with them. One of the qualities that all tutors require is patience, so it would be beneficial to you to observe a tutoring session to see for yourself how patient the tutor is with your student. If the tutor does not allow parents to watch a session, perhaps they would allow you to tape or video record a session, so that it is less distracting for your child. Also, get feedback from your children as to how helpful the tutor is. Don't continue with a tutor who your child does not like and is not enthusiastic about seeing.

6. What is your area of expertise? Different tutors will have different strengths and weaknesses. Just ask the tutor what they feel comfortable teaching. Your high school sophomore might need help in Geometry, Chemistry, and Spanish. But it is unlikely you will find a tutor who is able to teach all 3 of these subjects. Often someone good with Math with also be good in Science, and someone good in English will also be good with a foreign language. But you might also find that someone with an English degree is also excellent with first year Algebra. You just never know. So you should find out what the tutor's credentials are and how much experience they have teaching the various subjects your student needs help with. Then make an informed decision about whether the tutor is qualified to help your student with the subject. High school students may need to see more than one tutor in order to get all their questions answered for each subject area.

7. What age student do you like to work with? Many teachers have definite preferences about what age student they like to work with. Some just enjoy helping younger students because they like the enthusiasm and energy little ones have. Also, many tutors feel that certain upper-level material is over their heads and feel more comfortable working with easier subject matter. On the other hand, some tutors prefer working with older students because they relate to teenagers better and haven't had the training necessary to be able to relate to smaller children. Of course there are some extra special teachers who can effectively work with students of any age. So just find out what age student the tutor feels comfortable with and make sure that matches the age of your child.

8. Do you have any references? Tutors who have been working for at least a year should be able to provide you with the names and phone numbers of other clients who are happy with their services. If tutors are just starting out, they may not have names of any past clients, but they should be able to give you the names of former employers, teachers, or friends who can vouch for their character. If any of the references you contact seem the least bit unsure about whether the tutor is good with kids, then you should look elsewhere for help. If a person is willing to give you references, then they should be good references that inspire confidence in the tutor's ability to teach your child.

9. Where do you tutor? Find out if a tutor prefers to work at his/her home, your home, or a neutral location like a library. Many tutors like to work at their own home. First of all, it is more efficient for them. They can line up clients back-to-back and not lose any time on the road or be caught out if their tutoring student cancels on them. Tutors also find it easier to have all their supplies and materials on hand without having to tote them around and possibly forget something they will need to effectively teach the student. If tutors use their own home, make sure that they are working at a well lit place conducive to studying with no distractions. Also, make sure you feel comfortable leaving your son or daughter alone with them. If not, ask the tutor to let you stay in a nearby room during the tutoring session. Other tutors will travel to your home. Expect to pay an additional fee for this service, since the tutor will be out additional time and gas money to travel to you. For tutors who feel their home is not suitable for tutoring (because they have young children or live in a small apartment), they prefer to travel to their clients' homes, and some of them will not charge any additional fee. Other tutors prefer a neutral location for tutoring like a library because they think it more conducive to studying, and it ensures the safety of both the tutor and the student.

10. What is your cancellation policy? Don't be surprised if your tutor requires you to sign a paper that says if you cancel a tutoring session without at least 24 hours notice, then you will be charged for that session. Tutors make their schedules based on an agreed upon time with their clients. Often they will have other clients who would like to tutor at the same time your student is scheduled, but they have to turn away this business because you are already taking up that time slot. If you cancel and the tutor is unable to fill that slot, the tutor has lost some of his/her anticipated income for that day. In the case of illness or an unexpected emergency, most tutors will allow you to make up that tutoring session at another time. Also, you should know what the tutor's policy is if he/she has to cancel on you. You should receive a make-up lesson or a refund for that session. If a tutor cancels on you more than 3 times in a semester, then you should consider looking for another tutor.

11. Do you require me to sign a contract? Don't worry if a tutor asks you to sign a paper that confirms the hourly rate, documents how often he/she will get paid, and outlines the cancellation policy. This contract will benefit both you and the tutor. After all, this is a business relationship, and it is good for both parties to have in writing the details about payment and cancellations. However, if a tutor wants you to sign a contract that commits you to paying for a specified number of sessions in advance, then you should beware. What if your son tells you after the second session that the tutor is not being helpful, and he hates her? You don't want to have to keep taking him to her just because you signed a contract that says they will have 10 sessions together. And you don't want to lose all the money you spent and get no help at all. Then you are stuck. Just read the contract carefully, and if there are parts of it you don't agree with, discuss them with the tutor and see if you can modify the contract. If you can't, don't sign the contract and look for another tutor.

12. Can we meet with you? Most tutors will agree to meet with the parents and student (at no charge) before they begin tutoring. This meeting should allow you the opportunity to check out the home of the tutor and inspect the area where the tutoring will take place to make sure it is suitable. If you are scheduling tutoring at a location other than the tutor's home, this meeting will serve as a job interview. Make sure the student is able to attend this meeting. How the student relates to the tutor is much more important than whether or not the parents like the tutor. If the tutor only talks to the parents and ignores the student, you may want to seriously consider whether or not the tutor will be able to communicate educational information to your child. If the tutor seems more interested in your child than you, take it as a good sign, a sign that the tutor genuinely likes kids. Of course you will want to make sure the tutor communicates with you and finds out your expectations for tutoring. If the tutor cannot meet with you because of scheduling conflicts, the tutor may be too busy to take on additional clients and may not have the time to give your child the attention he/she deserves.

13. Do you offer any guarantees? There are no guarantees in life. You may want the tutor to promise you that the student's grades will improve or that the student will study more or that student will start to have a better attitude about doing homework. While all these things might result from your student working with a tutor, the tutor can't promise that they will happen. Remember if your child is behind in school, it will take awhile to catch up. Don't expect an instant fix to the problem. If you know your student is two grade levels behind, don't expect him/her to catch in one six weeks. So how will you know if the money you are spending for a tutor is worth it? If your student doesn't mind going to tutoring, and the tutor can show you what they are working on regularly, then you can trust that they are making progress. Of course the ultimate goal of tutoring is for the student to become an independent learner, so you should make sure the tutor is encouraging the student to take responsibility for his/her studies and not simply helping the student complete his/her homework.

14. When do you get paid? The way tutors get paid will vary with each one. Tutors can get paid for each individual session, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Some tutors will want their money in advance while others are content to get paid after services have been rendered. Some tutors will be flexible about when they get paid and others will not. Just remember that the tutor also has bills to pay, and so if they have a certain way they want to be paid, try to accommodate them. If they have a lot of clients and each one pays in a different way, it will be hard for them to keep track of who has paid and who has not. Make sure you work out an agreement about payment in advance of beginning tutoring so that everyone will know what to expect.

15. Will you invoice me? Many tutors will not have the capability to take credit cards, but if they do, you will have a record of your payment when you receive your credit card statement each month. If you pay by check, keeping a record is easy. You either have it on a duplicate check or on your monthly statement. However, if you pay cash, make sure the tutor gives you a written receipt with the date you made the payment and what the payment covers (the dates and lengths of the tutoring sessions). Many tutors will provide you with a typed invoice for tutoring. If so, keep them in a file folder and make a notation on them about how you paid. If you pay with check, write the check number, amount, and date paid on the invoice. If you pay with cash, simply make a notation of the amount paid in cash and the date you paid it. If you want, you can even have the tutor initial the information for verification. This kind of record keeping ensures that there is never any discrepancy between you and the tutor regarding payment.

The tutoring market is enjoying rapid growth across the spectrum of subjects and levels of education in Australia. Currently, according to Standards Australia, about 25% of Australia's 4 million students receive supplementary private tutoring every year. This number continues to grow as parents all over the world are recognising the importance of education in the increasingly competitive employment industry.

There is also an international trend toward supplementary education. Struggling students in conventional classrooms right through to brilliant students who do not feel challenged enough at school are taking up private tutoring. Many parents of average students want to maximise their child's educational opportunities and encourage a deeper interest in school subjects.

The rise in identification of psychological disorders such as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) and Aspergers Syndrome has also driven the home tutoring market upwards with schools unable to provide the necessary one-on-one attention these students need to perform well in school. The increasing population and the burden that places on the educational system results inevitably in larger class sizes with typical classes having over 30 students. Amazing results can be achieved by choosing the right private tutor for a child that is struggling at school.

The credit crunch doesn't seem to have slowed demand for home tutoring services. A child's education is perceived as an essential investment by many parents, who are willing to sacrifice spending on commercial goods and luxury items before cutting back on home tutoring expenses. Time will tell if this trend continues but for now home tutoring seems to be bucking the trend in the current global economic downturn. The number of people working as home tutors seems set to soar as people are made redundant or have their hours cut back and turn to alternative ways to make money. We're predicting that freelance tutors and home based services will balloon over the next few years as more and more people seek out additional revenue streams.

Most parents have little knowledge of what to look for in a tutor and so tend to rely on recommendation and reputation when making decisions regarding their child's education. It can be a slow process building up a client base from scratch as a private tutor as so many people use word-of-mouth and trusted referrals to find a local tutor. Many tutors are turning to agencies to find clients which can act as a win-win with parents who prefer to have the buffer of a management company along with the assurance of child safety checks and reference checks.

South Charlotte Tutoring: The Help Your Child Needs!

1. Check with the teacher. See if your child's teacher offers tutoring before or after school. If so, then make sure you take advantage of all the tutoring times offered. Making an effort will show the teacher that your son or daughter really cares and is trying to improve. If the teacher does not offer additional help, check and see if the school offers any tutoring programs before or after school for your child. You might also consider having the school test your child to see if he or she qualifies for any of the special classes offered by the school to help students with learning difficulties.

2. Ask the school counselors/school district.  Some school districts have an approved tutoring list that will not only give the names and numbers of qualified tutors but will also have their areas of expertise as well as their hourly rates. Usually these tutors have passed a background check so that the school district can ensure they have no criminal history. Also, the tutors being used by the school district will usually live in the nearby area, which will ensure that they are not too far so as to make them inaccessible.

3. Get recommendations from friends, family, and co-workers.  If you ask other parents, you will probably find that some of them have hired tutors for their children. You can then determine what they like and did not like about the tutor beforehand. Ask them what age their children were when they saw the tutor so that you can see if it is about the same as the age of your child. Also, find out what subject the tutor was helping them with so that you can see if it is the same type of material your child needs help with. You can also ask if the tutor is dependable and if the rates are affordable. By getting this information before you contact the tutor, you can limit your search and save yourself some time.

4.  Check Yellow Page listings.  Although the Yellow Pages may seem like an impersonal way to find a tutor, you can be sure that a teacher with a listing takes his/her tutoring business seriously. Make sure you contact the tutors closest to you first, especially if they want you to drive to their location for help. Also, try to select a tutor who you have a good rapport with over the phone. People who are easy to talk to are also usually the ones who kids relate to. Ask for the tutor's credentials, including years of experience and educational background, and find out if the tutor is willing to give you the phone numbers of other students he/she tutors as references.

5. Go Online.  You may be leery about going online to find a tutor, especially with all the warnings about the bad people lurking out there on the Internet just waiting to pounce on unsuspecting youths. But if you look in the right places, you can find extremely well qualified tutors who live near you. Simply go to your favorite search engine, and type in a phrase like "Dallas (or whatever the name of your city/town is) area tutors" or "Dallas Algebra tutor." Once you find some tutors you would like to contact, you should send them an email or call them to get more information about where they tutor, when they tutor, how much they charge, etc. Then you can decide which one you would like to meet to further discuss any tutoring questions you may have.

This is a great service for parents who need to leave the home.

The more common tutor is those you must go out to see. The nice thing about this is the tutor usually will have more supplies at their work and will be able to give your child more help.

Tuition is a lucrative business - and a deceptive one at times. Do not get me wrong. I'm not implying that there are tuition centres that are out to cheat you. It's just an inherent flaw in the system which makes quality control an uphill task. And this inevitably forms the root of the problem.

More often than not, we hear parents relating incidents where they were 'cheated' by tuition agencies for assigning 'lousy' tutors to their children, complaints of the rising costs of education, and the escalating stress levels their children face. Quite recently, the press had also released a full- page report on the 'omni-presence' of tuition among school children. Evidently, school is no longer from Monday to Friday. It's every day.

Among the many subjects offered in Primary schools, students seem to find it hardest to excel in the math and sciences; some barely pass. Why? You may wonder. These are subjects that require conceptual knowledge, logical thinking, and creativity to solve the problem at hand - skills that are relatively hard to master (unless you have the natural gift for it), and definitely not something which one could grasp given the short time span in the classroom. In other words, in order to fully understand the subject, one needs to attempt questions, make mistakes, and learn from them. Such thorough work cannot be done only on the night before the exam! And that's when tuition comes into the picture.

The role of a tutor is to consistently teach, clarify doubts, and ultimately lead his student onto the path to success in the exams. Unfortunately, this rosy picture is not always fulfilled and by the time parents realize that, it's too late.

Searching for a Math/Science tutor is a tedious process. Not only does one need to look at the tutor's qualifications, one needs to know what the tutor is doing during lesson time and most importantly their child's development. The first criteria tends to be screened by tuition centres and agencies, but the second requirement is usually neglected. Due to the nature of the skills demanded by Math/Science, a student's progress can be painstakingly slow. But remember, exams never wait! Their improvement is slowed down further or even put to a halt when the tutor does not do a proper job. Some of these signs are listed below:

- Looking at your child do his/her school homework, which essentially takes up the entire duration of the tuition, while the tutor does something unrelated.
- Building such a good rapport with your child that they discuss anything except the subject to be taught
- Not marking/ checking your child's work
- Not explaining your child's mistakes to him/her
- Always cancelling/ postponing the lesson.
- Giving your child a shorter class duration than what was paid for.

Since busy parents tend to overlook these minor details, the damage made to their child's grades becomes irreparable when the exam draws near. Instead of frantically searching for another tuition centre, or waiting in vain for the agency to assign another tutor with a matching schedule and location, some parents in Singapore have turned towards a slightly more unconventional alternative.

Online tutoring has been an up-and-coming trend over these past few years. This is especially so in countries such as the US where tuition becomes an email or mouse-click away. This service tends to be utilized by students who require extra assistance in their studies and whose teachers are too preoccupied to answer their numerous queries in time. It is often favoured for the lower costs, convenience and daily support it provides. The tutor, too, benefits from this online working relationship with more flexibility to think outside 'tuition time' compared to a face-to-face session. Hence, students are assured of higher quality answers to their questions. However, an occasional meet-up is possible through prior arrangement should the need ever arise.

With national exams such as the PSLE round the corner, we still see parents hunting for tutors so as to help their children improve or maintain their grades after the prelims. This is good as it attests to the level of importance parents place on their children's education. Yet, one may need to take a step back to re-assess the stringency of checkpoints placed in the general tutoring community too.

Monroe Tutoring: The Help Your Child Needs!

math and reading tutor

People may think that the key to effective math tutoring, or tutoring in any area for that matter, is contingent upon the knowledge that the tutor brings to the table. While knowledge of one's field is certainly important if a tutor is going to be effective, more important is the tutor's ability to relate to your child and give him or her the necessary confidence to succeed in the math subject at hand. During my many years of math tutoring, students would come to know that I knew my field well, but more importantly they came to know that I could relate to them on a deeply personal level. Once this aspect of the tutor-student relationship is established, tutoring becomes markedly more effective.

Whether you are working with the slow learner, fast learner, or in-between learner, you as a math tutor must be able to get inside that student's head and find out what makes him or her tick. You also need to assess whether your particular student is an auditory learner, visual learner, tactile learner, or some mixture of these. It certainly does not hurt to find out the interests of your student and gear your remediation of the troubled subject toward this particular interest. Thus if sports is dear to Johnny, the struggling algebra student, then you should try to center your lessons around sports and interject some sports related problems to the sessions. For example, in remedying Johnny's problems with decimal equations, you might relate decimals to batting averages and percentages such as a pitcher's earned run average (era). In dealing with projectile motion problems, certainly use Johnny's favorite quarterback as the one who throws the football, which is governed by the equation to be solved, in the air.

Techniques such as those mentioned above will not only stimulate interest in the subject but also show the student how such seemingly irrelevant courses in school can actually relate back to the student's world and realms of interest. Remember, you can thoroughly understand both integral and differential calculus, but if you cannot teach your students to navigate in these waters, your knowledge is essentially self-serving. Identify with your tutoring students and watch both them and you grow to become better learners and better teachers.

Are you getting hung up on your science homework? Do you need homework help for 8th grade science? If so, you need to read this article. So, take 5 minutes now, to get yourself back on track for a good grade in science!

Most junior high school science classes broadly cover the natural science, from basic physics, chemistry, earth sciences, and biology. Grasping so many concepts can be tricky, though, so if you need homework help for 8th grade science, you should consider these following points.

Junior high (especially 8th grade) is the time when schools change from general ideas to specific concepts in terms of teaching science. Teachers are preparing you for high school the more rigorous science classes you will take in high school. Therefore, it is vitally important that you start building good study habits ASAP. Up until this point in school, you could probably get by without studying or readying the book too closely. Well, not anymore. It is really important to read the assigned chapters in the book and understand what the book is saying. Also very important is to do the homework and understand what you're doing! You will eventually be tested on the material covered in homework--that is a guarantee.

If you believe you're spending enough time reading the book but aren't getting the grade you want, you should consider getting homework help for 8th grade science from another source, be it your parents or a tutor. If you're already spending 4-6 minimum per week studying (that should probably be enough studying to get an A in most junior high science classes), then you need to seek outside help. A tutor can quickly help you get back on track with the concepts from class. Ask your teacher if you are looking for and can't find additional homework help.

This next point should be self explanatory, but I'm not at all surprised at how many students don't already do this--and this is that you need to pay attention in class. If you're sleeping or talking during class, not only are you going to miss what the teacher is telling you, but you're not even going to know WHAT topics have been covered in class. It is extremely difficult to study for a test if you don't know what topics to study for! Things you need to do to pay attention in class include getting enough rest (8 hours is recommended), eating enough for breakfast and lunch, and being prepared with paper and pencil. And a trick that will help you far into the future is to read the material ahead of time. When you hear the teacher talking about material you've already heard, it'll make SO much more sense. Following these tips will make science class easier to learn and reduce the amount of homework help for 8th grade science class that you'll need.

1. Check with the teacher. See if your child's teacher offers tutoring before or after school. If so, then make sure you take advantage of all the tutoring times offered. Making an effort will show the teacher that your son or daughter really cares and is trying to improve. If the teacher does not offer additional help, check and see if the school offers any tutoring programs before or after school for your child. You might also consider having the school test your child to see if he or she qualifies for any of the special classes offered by the school to help students with learning difficulties.

2. Ask the school counselors/school district.  Some school districts have an approved tutoring list that will not only give the names and numbers of qualified tutors but will also have their areas of expertise as well as their hourly rates. Usually these tutors have passed a background check so that the school district can ensure they have no criminal history. Also, the tutors being used by the school district will usually live in the nearby area, which will ensure that they are not too far so as to make them inaccessible.

3. Get recommendations from friends, family, and co-workers.  If you ask other parents, you will probably find that some of them have hired tutors for their children. You can then determine what they like and did not like about the tutor beforehand. Ask them what age their children were when they saw the tutor so that you can see if it is about the same as the age of your child. Also, find out what subject the tutor was helping them with so that you can see if it is the same type of material your child needs help with. You can also ask if the tutor is dependable and if the rates are affordable. By getting this information before you contact the tutor, you can limit your search and save yourself some time.

4.  Check Yellow Page listings.  Although the Yellow Pages may seem like an impersonal way to find a tutor, you can be sure that a teacher with a listing takes his/her tutoring business seriously. Make sure you contact the tutors closest to you first, especially if they want you to drive to their location for help. Also, try to select a tutor who you have a good rapport with over the phone. People who are easy to talk to are also usually the ones who kids relate to. Ask for the tutor's credentials, including years of experience and educational background, and find out if the tutor is willing to give you the phone numbers of other students he/she tutors as references.

5. Go Online.  You may be leery about going online to find a tutor, especially with all the warnings about the bad people lurking out there on the Internet just waiting to pounce on unsuspecting youths. But if you look in the right places, you can find extremely well qualified tutors who live near you. Simply go to your favorite search engine, and type in a phrase like "Dallas (or whatever the name of your city/town is) area tutors" or "Dallas Algebra tutor." Once you find some tutors you would like to contact, you should send them an email or call them to get more information about where they tutor, when they tutor, how much they charge, etc. Then you can decide which one you would like to meet to further discuss any tutoring questions you may have.
