Does My Child Need Tutoring?

How do you know if your child needs tutoring? Is your child just a late bloomer? These were the questions I was asking myself before my daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia at the end of third grade. It was this experience that inspired me to become a tutor and help other children like her. If you have these same questions about your own child here are some things to look for.
