Firstly, we are assuming that adults know when to hire a tutor, so we are focusing on when to hire a tutor for a child or adolescent. Even though each student is different and no two situations are alike,here are a few signs and situations that may indicate that your child can benefit from a tutor.
- Lower grades especially if the downward slide becomes a trend
You will know that it is time to ask for help, when your child is getting lower grades or can’t keep up with class work.
- Frustration with homework
Typically, homework is an extension of classwork, and if you child is having trouble with homework, it is a clear sign that they need help especially if you find that homework time is a battle not just for the student but for the parent as well.
- Changes in behavior
This can happen for a myriad of reasons, but one of them is simply frustration with school work and if that is the case a tutor can help alleviate it. If the child starts avoiding talk about school or school work, is reluctant to do homework, seems irritable, short tempered and angry there is a very good chance that they are having trouble keep up with school work and the change in behavior is caused by a roller coaster of feelings- they are afraid of parent judgement, they may feel shame, harbor anger toward teachers, feel inadequate and helpless and a tutor can easily reverse the situation in a very short period of time.
Freedom tutors offers customized one on one in person or online instruction to every student. Our academic tutors are either licensed teachers or certified tutors in addition to be the absolute best in their fields. We also make to pass almost all of the proceeds from the lessons to our tutors so that they are always at their best and you get the high quality instruction you deserve. You can either take lessons online or have a tutor come to your house so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your house if you don’t want to.
There is no limit on the number of tutoring sessions you have. However, we recommend that you seek help from a tutor with a goal in mind. Your objective should be to reach that goal and not to reach a certain number of tutoring sessions. Also, it is important to note that academic success and any other skill acquisition depends on consistency. You are unlikely to see any benefits if you have one or two tutoring sessions unless you need some very specific help with a particular project or problem.
Your tutor will work with you and your child to figure out what your child’s challenges and objectives are before and during the first tutoring session. They are there to help your child overcome difficulties, get ahead and gain confidence, so if your child’s school uses common core, your tutor will teach common core as well. If you homeschool or your child’s school do not use common core, your tutor will conform to the respective curriculum.
We recommend that all our tutors who teach school age children get in touch with the student’s teachers because we believe that students are better served when they have a supportive team. Chances are your tutor will recommend you get them in touch with the teachers but you are certainly more than welcome to bring it up if they don't. You can even ask your tutor to accompany you to parent teacher conferences with the teacher's permission.
Every tutoring session is backed by our “perfect fit “guarantee. Your money is safe in an escrow account for 5 days after you have had a lesson. If you need to dispute a payment either because you believe there was a mistake or because you were not happy with a tutoring session, we will assist you in doing so . Please email us to dispute a payment.
Freedom tutors uses a payment, gateway and encryption services to make sure that your financial information is 100% secure. This processing fee represents a portion of these services cost.

However, if you decide that you would like to delete your account, please send us an email with the subject line Delete my student account on email@example.com
If you post a request for for tutoring, we send that request to all the tutors that match your criteria and tutors are free then to contact you.
You are under no obligation to work with any one of them and frankly, virtually always you will receive several tutor responses and you have to pick the best one for you. Although you can simply choose to ignore tutor responses, we recommend that you respond to the tutors either to accept their offer or reject it. Please be respectful because these are highly qualified, licensed or certified instructors who work hard to improve their students’ lives.
