I am the director of Los Angeles Tutor and San Diego Tutor. We offer in home tutoring to students in the Los Angeles and San Diego areas. It is really important to find a tutor that meshes well with the student and is able to make the student really understand the material in a comfortable environment. It is not enough for the tutor to just know the material..he or she has to be able to communicate and teach the material to the student in a way that the student will understand. Tutors need to teach their students how to learn and apply, not just memorize material. We have a great paragraph on the first page of our websites which talks about how to choose the best tutor.
I also wanted to mention that we offer free tutoring to families that are unable to pay for supplemental tutoring help. We have a very easy scholarship application on our website that I encourage all families to apply for. With schools being as competitive as they are, we want to offer everyone the opportunity to get tutoring, even if they can not afford it. I have included a link to our websites below for your convenience. We are always open to getting feedback so please let us know what we can do better to help. Thanks for reading.
