10 Signs Your Child Needs a Tutor

Avoiding School

"I don't feel good," is a phrase you'll hear from your child who struggles with school. Going to the nurse's office or calling home while at school are sure signs your child needs the support of a tutor.

Sour Attitude

Watch for an overwhelming amount of emotion when home work time comes each night. If your child shuts down or throws a tantrum, your child may need the insight of a tutor.

Test Scores

There are times when your child's test scores just don't seem to make sense because it does not reflect your child's daily performance at school.


If you are consistently hearing from your child he/she doesn't have homework, this is a red flag especially for upper grades!


When your child seems unmotivated to please you or his/her teacher and do class work or testing, there is a reason beneath it and a tutor can help you find it.


If your child is consistently beating themselves down because of a poor grade or performance at school, a tutor can help build his/her self esteem again.

Learning Disabilities

When a child struggles, he/she may have ADD, dyslexia, an auditory processing disorder, etc. A tutor can help guide you to find a study regiment that works for your child. 

Extreme Anxiety

If your child feels fearful of tests or is even physically sick, a tutor can help your child find test taking strategies to help them conquer his/her fears.


If you or your child have given up because it seems that no matter what you try, it's just not working. Contact a tutor today to help you problem solve and come up with a solution that gets your child back on track.

Poor Time Management

If homework is taking longer than it really should, your child could benefit from working with a tutor who can help him/her find systems to increase their productivity.

All children have the right to learn, and deserve to succeed in school. Nourishing Minds is committed to providing a positive, safe, and productive environment that fosters learning to improve confidence and self esteem. Empowering students with the skills to become confident, effective, and independent thinkers and learners will allow them to reach their full academic potential.
