Tutor, teacher, or just an instructor? To whom do you turn when your student needs more help than you’re able to provide? In general, we expect public/private schoolteachers to be sufficient facilitators of their respective subjects of expertise for all their students, but that is entirely unrealistic. No one instructor could provide a sufficient amount of time and energy to each pupil’s satisfaction even if the instructor was willing, and so the more serious students must tax the teachers with their questions at the end of the day (providing the teachers even stay late after school hours). Some institutions graciously provide free after school homework help, but it is not individual tutoring. It is also not conducted by tutors that are handpicked for the students’ needs. It is general homework help, but your student needs specialized attention and help. That means the English teacher probably shouldn’t assist students with advanced calculus unless he or she has also studied the subject thoroughly. That’s generally not the case, and it is the general population that we are addressing here.
There is no doubt that students need help from time to time, but where do you get it? A typical Internet search will render countless tutoring agencies, companies, and independent freelance tutors, but you want quality not quantity. Is a group of 5 - 15 students with unrelated academic needs in one room really conducive for your student’s understanding? Most parents would say no, but what most don’t know is that this is the typical tutoring arrangement with the majority of the tutoring companies. You can hire a private tutor, but without a third party to verify the tutor’s identity and qualifications, you are taking a serious risk with your money and possibly safety.
The LP Learning Center screens and tests their tutors rigorously, so that whether they tutor your student at home or at our center, you can rest assured that your student is receiving one-on-one instruction, tailored to his or her needs. We also offer small group sessions in which the group does not exceed 2 students, and each group is focused on the same subject. We have flexible scheduling and can tutor all the major core subjects for all age groups. If you have ever considered tutoring for yourself or your student, look no further. We’ve taken care of the leg work for you so you don’t have to.
