Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom - George Washington Carver

In real life, you may come across several successful (famous and rich) individuals without a formal college degreeHowever, the untold story is that they built their success with the support of mentors. Also, their success was possible due to the lessons learnt from the University of Hard Knock. It is in the family’s best interest to provide a quality education to their children. Though not perfect, the current education system works. 

The inherent shortcomings in the current education system present opportunities for improvement. Until we find an ideal education system, parents will continue to seek supplemental education a.k.a. tutoring services. Tutoring helps slow learners catch up with the course work. Also, it helps fast learners advance their grades and improve test taking skills. it helps them to earn better grades. 

Parents seek private tutors because:

  • Ever increasing demand for better grades to get into top ranking universities. And/Or the pressure to earn scholarship, forces parents/students to seek expert help to earn top test scores.
  • Most schools cannot meet the educational needs of all the students.
  • Overcrowded classrooms leave little time for individualized attention.
  • Teachers are burdened with increased non-academic responsibilities such as committee work, fund raising, etc. that unwittingly cut into their core teaching obligations.
  • Families where both parents are employed full-time have little time and energy to tutor their children.
  • All parents may not have an aptitude to teach.
  • Parental teaching styles may not keep pace with the current learning trends.
  • The tutoring marketplace presents a variety of choices to those parents who opt private tutoring. While options are good, parents should educate themselves to select the right tutoring center. This is because, education is an investment in the future of the children.
