As a parent, you want to make sure you child is successful in school. This will ensure that he or she is prepared to enter higher education or a successful career path. However, your child has advanced so far in school that you may not feel prepared to continue to help your child with homework; or perhaps your child needs specialized tutoring to either help or advance their skills in a particular area.
However, private tutoring or specialized help can be expensive; but there are free options out there for your child. Here are some tips on finding free tutoring.
Research tutoring options at your child’s school, as they may know of free resources. In addition, the “No Child Left Behind Law” may require your school provide free tutoring in some circumstances.
Your local library may offer homework or tutoring programs. These programs are usually offered as an online resource and can be used at the library or at home.
Churches, community centers and other community agencies may also offer tutoring programs.
If you live near a college or university, check with them as they may have a teachers-in-training program that offers tutoring or homework help as part of the teaching program.
Check out online resources. Use search terms such as “free online tutoring services.”
You can also use other online resources to advance your search for homework help by using specific search terms. You can search for solving a particular type of math problem or a specific English term.
There are many resources that can help you find free or very inexpensive options to help your child.
