Now that my eldest son is in grade school, somehow I also think if it would be best if I get a tutor for him. Nowadays, private tutoring is one of the best options. Getting somebody specializing on education doesn't mean that your child is failing and he needs help. Let's rid of that common perception.
There are several purposes why tutors were made available. My son's school for one is offering after class tutoring for children whose parents are having a hard time coping and mixing work with aiding their child on school matters such as homework. As for me, being a concerned parent, I look at tutoring as a good activity to have for my child. Like once or twice a week, spending my son's time with a private tutor is way better than seeing him waste time in front of the television. I'm not a perfect mom. I sometimes miss out on things every time I teach my son. Things tutors has full knowledge of and creative activities that only professionals are capable of.
Private tutoring is a good option. Your child gets to stay at home where you can still monitor him with the teacher and when it comes to schedule, with private tutoring, it's easier because you will only mind the time the tutor or teacher will begin and end the whole teaching process. But before hiring a tutor, it is best to have your child assessed so that the tutor's able to adjust according to the child's needs.
