Children learn in different ways, and this is especially true for those with learning disabilities. When searching for a tutor for your child, you will want to keep this in mind.
If you are familiar with the teaching method that works best with your child, you can use Canada 411 to find tutors who specialize in that particular method. If you don’t know or aren’t sure, you can look for tutors who have knowledge of different teaching methods. If you’re not sure which teaching method works best for your child, you may have to interview tutors who do not specialize or adhere to one particular method. Even if they have been trained in one specific type, if a tutor is willing to adjust his or her methods to your child’s needs, the tutor may still work out.
If you are interviewing a tutor and it is apparent that her or she uses only one teaching method for all the children he or she tutors, and is resistant to any change or adjustment in the method, you will most likely want to look further. If the teaching method simply does not work with your child, you will be wasting your money and your child’s time by trying to make the situation work.
If this is the case, you can use an online directory to find other sources for tutors. As you continue looking, you should be able to find one who can respond to your child’s needs and is willing to make adjustments or changes.
