Yes, I have in the past with my twins.

And I think I will this year with my oldest, math doesn't come easy to her and her father doesn't have enough patience to work with her on a regular basis. I don't remember enough of the details of upper level math to help her.

Yes. We used a tutor with Brandon. We happened to get very lucky and got a great tutor on our first try. If anyone out there is thinking of using a tutor, I would recommend checking them out first. Find out what programs they use, and what their qualifications are.

Brandon's tutor was the first one to tell him that he had a learning disability. I was new to all of this, so I kept it from him, thinking that I was "protecting" him. She spelled it all out for him and explained it and even told him about a lot of famous people who had the same condition. She was AWESOME!!

I have gotten a tutor for mine. Sometimes, having someone else work with your child helps a lot. I second what others are saying about getting a good tutor. You want someone that has an idea about what they want to accomplish and ideas about curriculum to use. You don't want a person who just sits and helps with homework.

I have been thinking about getting a tutor for Jeremy. How did you find your tutor? Did you put an ad in the paper or did you know somebody?
