Role of Schools In Referring To Tutoring Services

by A Guest Author

School districts have a responsibility to make sure that each student has access to the learning resources that they need to be successful learners. In most cases classroom lectures, teacher instruction and classroom learning activities are all that they need to develop academically. However, some students require a little extra help to develop in step with their peers.

There are many signs that you can look for to determine which students need extra help and which ones are progressing normally. The first sign is how much the student participates in class. The more they participate in class the more likely it is that they are progressing normally or even faster than normal. On the other hand, if the student is reluctant to participate in classroom activities then they may be struggling with the material. Other signs to look out for are:

(1) the failure to complete homework
(2) the failure to pass exams
(3) the failure to pay attention in class

Each of these warning signs can indicate that a student needs a little extra attention.

If you notice that a student is having a hard time in your class, of if you are a parent who is noticing that your child is struggling with their homework, then it may be time to call in a professional tutoring service. If you are not sure you can work with a tutoring center, who will be able to screen your child for learning disabilities and other learning issues. They will be able to pinpoint what is causing the problem, as well as provide you with options for fixing the problem.

Tutoring services do not replace a quality education, but instead they will enhance a child’s education. Tutoring services need to work with the school curriculum so that the student can keep up with their classmates or so that they can explore a new area of academic interest. To help tutoring services develop an effective tutoring program you will want to set up a meeting with your child’s individual education plan committee.

At the IEP meeting you will talk about what the student is struggling with, what is causing their learning issues and what goals you would like to meet during this school year. You will also talk about what curriculum materials the student will be exposed to in the next semester. You can use this information to set up a tutoring schedule and plan.
