Frequently Asked Questions

We all have our good days, and our bad days. Everyone experiences it. If you are experiencing any challenges, here are some helpful tips and advice to help you!


  • What happens if my learner is not participating in our tutoring session?

    • Try taking a 5-minute break: bathroom break, color, do something "mindless."

    • Try figuring out a new form of teaching the material. Children love more hands-on learning than mere worksheets. 

  • What do I do if my learner does not feel comfortable around me?

    • Try ice breakers to ease your way into a friendship.

    • Try finding similarities between you and the learner.

  • What do I do if my learner is saying something inappropriate?

    • Redirect your learner to the task you have been working on together. ​

    • Reaffirm/ model appropriate language and behavior. 

  • What if my learner brings nothing to our tutoring session?

    • Find resources that you know and/or use our list of resources to practice concepts that you have both been working on. ​

  • What do I do if I don’t understand how to relay the content my learner is learning the way their teacher is doing it?

    • Ask them to teach you. A reversal of roles can be more beneficial to the learner. As they are teaching you, they are practicing and learning educational material.
