Hiring a private tutor is among the best ways to help your child improve their reading. But, before you do so, there are three things you need to consider:
  1. Make sure to have finished a psycho-educational assessment. This is essential. If you skip a professional test, how will you be able to find the right tutor?
  2. Give some thought as to whether you might be the tutor. It saves you money and can be rewarding. Ask yourself: do you have the energy, time, and knowledge to do it?
  3. Do some research before selecting a tutor (an interview is a must). Considering that you will work with the tutor for a long time, you have to make sure that you enjoy working with the one you choose.
