Growing Demand for Academic Tutoring

Finding an effective tutor for your child can be a challenge. Due to increased expectations placed on students of all ages, the demand for academic tutoring continues to grow. One-on-one, in-home tutoring is hard to come by at a reasonable rate. To add to the difficulty, parents often do not know the background qualifications of a tutor, or may discover that their student and tutor just do not work well together. Schools often do not know who to refer parents to for more academic support.

Rise and Shine Tutoring, LLC will match the right tutor to a student’s specific learning needs. With a network of professional, qualified and dedicated tutors available they can provide a tutor for any academic subject area or grade level (K-College) including special education, ESL (English as a Second Language), college level courses and ACT/ SAT.

With the growing expectations and curriculum requirements facing today’s students, it is not unusual for some students to need additional instructional time to grasp the material. One-on-one instruction is the best way for a student to receive personal attention and to ask questions that they might otherwise be intimidated to ask in a large group or classroom setting.

In this day of very busy lifestyles, having a tutor accommodate a parent’s schedule and come to them or a local place, makes it an even better solution. Parents do not have to be the one to run the student to yet one more activity and considering the price of gas and the difficulty of fighting rush hour traffic, this type of service makes it very convenient and affordable.

A preliminary and personal consultation/meeting to assess the child’s educational needs and learning style is an important part of the process of matching a student with the right qualified and dedicated tutor. Knowing that the tutor is a credentialed teacher or a tutor in a specific academic area with proof of transcripts, a clean background check and excellent references is very reassuring.

It can be a very rewarding experience when parents, student, educator/teacher and tutor come together as a team with a common goal. They can communicate and work together to help improve a young person’s attitude toward learning, build self-confidence and increase the understanding of the school’s curriculum.

Rise and Shine Tutoring, LLC launched in January 2008, serves tutoring needs in Ingham, Clinton, Eaton, Livingston and Shiawassee Counties. Tutors work with the school curriculum along with supplemental materials to reinforce the student’s understanding of content and school expectations.
