3 Reasons You Might Need a Tutor - #LearnWithWyzant



This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wyzant for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

My kids are all back in school and I'm sure so are yours. Whether you homeschool or not, it's just that time of the year. I'm going to be honest with you. I graduated from college over 20 years ago. The British does things differently than Americans. We start college at age 16 so we get out of school a little bit younger than American do. However, I also went to college here in the US and graduated, but it has been a while. After all, I'm 40 years old and while I know that you're never too old to go to college, I wanted it done as early as possible, when I still had all my faculties intact. Now it's my children's turn. My eldest is in her 3rd year of college and my oldest son will start college in just 2 years. What that means for me and him is that he's now doing work that I did years ago, and I'm going to be the first to tell you that I have no idea what some of the work he's doing is all about. Even my 11yr old's math is sometimes confusing and I have to tell him "ask your teacher tomorrow". But thanks to Wyzant Tutoring he doesn't need to wait until "tomorrow". However, I want to share with you these 3 reasons you may need a tutor.


1. Failing Grades

Failing Grades is the number one reason that your child may need a tutor. If your child is used to bringing home A's and now he's bringing home C's and D's, that's a sure sign that your child may need help in whatever subject that he may be failing. Talk to your child about their grades, but don't be judgmental, consider ways that you can help. Keep an eye on their homework, tests, quizzes, etc, and don't wait until that first mid-term test results show up. Don't wait until your student brings home an F, get help before it's too late.

2. You Can't Help With Homework When Asked

If your child is struggling and you can't help with homework when asked, that's also a way to know that you're going to need help and a tutor might just be the way to do so. With Common Core becoming more common, there are lots of parents who are now actively seeking help. I'm going to admit that I'm one of those parents. When did math become so difficult? If you can't help with homework, find a tutor who can help your student. Don't let pride get in the way, if you can't do it, you just can't.

3. Homework Taking Longer Than Usual

If homework that once use to take an hour, now takes 3 hours, it might be time to worry. Granted more and more homework has been sent home lately, but if that is also accompanied by frustration, then there is a very good chance that a tutor might be needed. When frustration and helplessness sets in, you may now be dealing with a child who no longer wants to do the work. A child who may also start hating school because to them, they may feel like a failure because they "just can't do it".

My son is currently doing Statistics in High School, which is a college course. He LOVED Algebra I and he couldn't wait for Algebra II, which he finished successfully. However, he now has a love/hate relationship with Statistics and according to him, he just don't get it, and it's hard. I'm also going to be honest here. I'm a business major and I only took math because it was mandatory, but I'm horrible at math. I wasn't going to pretend that I could help so I decided to find him a tutor. I had recently heard about Wyzant Tutoring and I decided to give them a try.


Whether your child is struggling with a subject, or you'd just love for them to get ahead in language lessons or even want to find a piano teacher – Wyzant has the most comprehensive network of expert tutors in the U.S. Now as a mother, I want nothing but the best for my kids and I wanted to be able to have choices. With our busy schedules, I wanted the option of either having someone come to my home, but online work just as great, and maybe even better since I now would also have experts all across the country willing to help. It was so simple to set up my online profile, and you too can see how Wyzant works here for yourself.


I felt comfortable finding the perfect tutor for my son because Wyzant gave me all the tools I needed to make the right decision. I can find a budget within my price range, read their ratings and reviews from other students and I could even ask the tutor to run a background check. What I absolutely LOVED was that my first lesson was backed by Wyzant's good fit guarantee, so if I wasn't satisfied with my first lesson, it would have been absolutely free!


Now my son has help from an online tutor and is doing much better in Statistics. He's able to do the work in the comfort of our home, usually outdoors because he claims it's much nicer outside, and I couldn't have been happier. There are more than 80,000 expert tutors just waiting to help your child in more than 300 subjects, and it can all be done online on Wyzant's website or mobile app. With no upfront costs, you only pay after your lesson ends and it is all processed securely. So if you're looking for a tutor, for whatever reason, try Wyzant online today.

  1. I've heard how hard and confusing the new math is these days. It's great that you can have an online tutor. I remember how hard it was to find a tutor and a time to go to the tutor when I was a in high school and college.

  2. Right now I can still help my son with his work, but he's in third grade so I think I may have to look into this because once he gets a little bit further I will not be able to help him anymore.

    1. Well Jeanette, it's not all about school work. Do you need a tutor for piano classes? They've got that too.

  3. Homework sometimes takes HOURS in our house. It is frustrating for EVERYONE! I need to look into Wyzant for more peaceful evenings!

  4. Great tips! We use a tutor in the summer and have a few times during the school year as well. I saw your comment on Tamara's post about the leaves changing in Colorado (my home state; now I'm in northern VA near DC but a lot of my family's in Colorado so we visit). I miss it! Enjoy the leaves!

    1. That's awesome Kristi and sometimes you just have to get the help you need. I haven't met much Colorado natives in the blog world, but it's beautiful in the fall.

  5. This is pretty awesome and something I will keep in mind for my son! He's only in 3rd grade and doing pretty well but I'm not very school smart and sometimes I struggle to help him. It's kind of embarrassing when I can't help him with some things but I sure do try.

    Jaiden also loves math but I know it's going to get harder! This will be great for when he needs that extra help I can't give him.

    Thank you for sharing this! I would have never known about this if it wasnt for you and your blog!! I'll be book marking for sure!

    1. Oh it's only going to get more difficult as time goes on. I actually helped my son as much as I could but I'm not a fan of Math either.

  6. Everything is done online these days and there is no reason why tutoring shouldn't be able to be done online as well. I love it! Taking tutoring online opens you up to some much more flexibility when it comes to finding the right tutor as well as to scheduling a session. It also makes getting that tutoring session in as easy as possible - you can do it right from the comfort of your own home.

    1. That's what I love about it. We can do it in the comfort of our homes without having to go out. There is just so much more choices as well, compared to if you needed one to come to you.

  7. There are plenty of reasons for parents to hire tutors for their kids. It's a huge help as well when you're working outside and if you think that a tutor will do a better job than you when it comes to helping with homework or catching up with lessons! Sounds like this is a great company for hiring reliable tutors.

    1. Oh it's amazing! And you're absolutely right, it is a big help.

  8. I will have to remember this company when my son is struggling. I have no clue how to teach my kids things because they are taught how to do things differently compared to the way I was taught how to do it.

    1. That's why most people hire tutors. I'm really surprised at the way they teach math now, just seems so much more difficult to me.

  9. Oh, this is a nice checklist. I will share this with my mom, I think my little sister needs one.

  10. The hourly rates seem pretty steep but if it is to ensure the success of our children, then why not? I only have one more child in college and he pretty much copes with his lessons. I will recommend Wyzant to friends and family.

    1. There are lots of different rates and guess what? You get to set your own rates.

  11. Tutoring can be so helpful and important! I love that it's so easy these days too. In the mall I shop at, there's a student center where students can get help from teachers and the parents can shop while they do it! Pretty neat.

    1. That sounds amazing! I would totally utilize that.

  12. Having a tutor at your fingertips is pretty neat! I have been homeschooling for 11 years now & it is just getting harder with the high school math. I failed it myself so it's nice to know there is someone who can help when it is needed. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. Oh trust me, I totally get it. I did college math and even I can't remember some of this high school stuff.

  13. Tutor can be very helpful. Yes! Especially with the homework and math that they give as assignments these days to young kids. Might be good to just get through that portion.

    1. Yes it can be very helpful and thankfully Wyzant is there to help.

  15. Great post! My daughter hasn't needed tutoring, so I count myself lucky. I probably could have done better in school with it had I applied myself more. I went back to college after my divorce and did much better. It's funny. I couldn't handle algebra in high school or my first attempt at college, but, I did great with statistics! Thanks for sharing!

    1. He was having trouble with statistics, but he's only 15 so I can totally understand.

  17. It's nice to be able to read the ratings and reviews and also to find a plan that fits any budget. Sometimes parents can't get the same results with tutoring their own child that a paid tutor can accomplish. Education is so important. Good info!

    1. Education is very important and you're right about parents and tutors. :)

  18. Really good considerations!
    My little girl isn't yet in school but I really do believe in tutors. I think sometimes, no matter how well you're doing in school, you can't beat a little bit of 121 time which you sometimes just don't get in a large classroom.

    1. I couldn't agree more! That one on one time is sometimes needed.

  19. I homeschooled my son, but, as a former teacher, I definitely think it is important to get tutoring if necessary. Sometimes you just need that extra help!

    1. Sometimes you truly do. You don't know everything. I know that I wouldn't have been able to help so I got the help that he needed.

  20. I always tell my students before they even start the class, to go get a tutor. You may be great at the subject, but it is good to have someone help you stay great along the way.

    1. That's a great way to look at it too. Thank you.

    1. While you may not need it for Kindergarten, and I really don't see why you would, you might need it for high school/college.

  26. Tutors are definitely necessary sometimes. As a kid I needed a geometry tutor and I did manage to pass that class. You should always ask for help when you need it.
