How Can My Child Get Free 7th Grade Tutoring?

If your child is struggling in school, he or she may need tutoring to catch up. Tutors can be a great resource because many customize instruction for individual children and provide targeted support. Most tutors, however, do not provide free tutoring; they generally charge by the hour. If your 7th grader needs a tutor and you don't want to hire one, you may be able to find free 7th grade tutoring in your neighborhood.

Determining What Your Child Needs

Before seeking help, it's usually best to first determine what kind of help your child needs. Talk to your 7th grader's teachers and school counselor to pinpoint what sort of trouble your child is having. You may also want to consult a learning expert or even a child psychologist outside of school. Once you have an idea of what needs to be done to help your child, you'll have a better idea of what type of support will be most appropriate.

Finding Free Tutoring Programs

There are probably several free tutoring options at your disposal if you find out where to look. Ask your child's teachers if the school has any tutoring programs. Many schools have before or after school help programs for struggling students. Your child's teachers may also be willing to meet one-on-one with him or her.

Another place to look is at a local community center or youth organization. Some communities have homework help centers staffed by high school students, senior citizen volunteers or college students majoring in education who will be able to guide your 7th grader in the right direction.

Utilizing Supplemental Educational Services

Many states offer Supplemental Educational Services (SES) to struggling students through a number of tutoring companies. This is due to the passage of the 2002 No Child Left Behind Act. Whether or not your child will qualify for SES depends on factors such as your gross income and your child's immediate tutoring needs. If your child qualifies, he or she can receive free tutoring anywhere from once a month to every day.

Finding Other Options

If you have the time, you can tutor your child yourself. There are a number of resources providing information about how to tutor your own child. You might find some at a local library, bookstore or online.

Many tutoring companies online offer free trials, so if your child only needs help with one assignment, this may be a quick fix. There are also volunteer-staffed, free homework sites. These offer many tips and answers to a multitude of questions that you or your child might have. Some sites will allow readers to submit questions as well. While this can be helpful, the drawback is that your child may have to wait a day or two for a response.
