Abstract:

"Tutoring today is a $4 billion industry (yes--billion) with companies like Sylvan Learning Center and Kaplan Tutoring cashing in. What are parents of today's overextended students to do? If only there were a resource closer to home that was easy, free, and able to provide the same quality of service. But there is: you. Top professional tutor Marina Koestler Ruben empowers you to take a do-it-yourself approach to your child's after-school enrichment, while sparing you the expense of private tutoring fees. As a parent-tutor, you will learn how provide holistic academic support for your children and create an intellectual environment in the home--strengthening your relationship and improving parent-child communication in the process. Ruben's holistic guide shows you how to balance big-picture curiosity with the academic nitty-gritties of homework assignments and electronic organization, while providing real-life examples and scripts to help you liven things up. Building on her proven "Six-Step Session" format, Ruben shares the secrets to tutoring children in any subject from kindergarten through high school--all with a warm, entertaining tone that will inspire you to inspire them"--Provided by publisher.

""A top academic tutor gives parents the tools they need to inspire after-school learning at home, without having to hire a pricey outside tutor"--Provided by publisher"--Provided by publisher.
