Elementary Tutoring with Mrs. Michael

Among the old schoolmasters, it was said that “The beginning is half of the whole.” The first years of education set the tone for all that follows. However, parents often assume that the early years are “easy” and they can teach their children themselves. Some parents certainly can, but many parents cannot–and they learn this the hard way.

Why Modern Tutoring Isn’t Enough

The modern K-12 school system is dysfunctional and students are suffering in it. Yet, the costs keep rising.

Most treat some of the symptoms, but neglect the causes of the problems. After spending lots of money on tutoring, parents will find their children in trouble again. Students commonly have problems that come from a number of sources. We need to address the immediate problems (low grades, confusion, frustration, etc.), but we also need to … Continue
