There are many reasons parents choose private tutoring for their children. Some parents find it difficult to help their children with schoolwork. Others have found that their children work best with another person. They see that not only do their child’s grades improve, but their confidence as well. Tutoring gives students individualized instruction that they don’t receive in a large classroom. So, if we know this to be true, why is it so difficult to find a local, qualified tutor?
Parents and students have limited options when searching for a tutor: word of mouth or a large, impersonal tutoring company. These options rarely provide you with a certified teacher who has experience with the curriculum being taught at their child’s school.
TutorFuse was developed with the parent and tutor in mind. We wanted to create a network that connects certified, experienced professionals with students in need of support. It is important to us that teachers are able to instruct students in their own content area.
