Why pay a tutor to help your child do better in school when you can do it yourself and save a bundle of money? If you follow the information top professional tutor Maria Koestler Ruben shares in this handy guide, you'll be on the fast track to making your son or daughter a more accomplished and confident student and hopefully also instill in him or her a lifelong love of learning.

The author shares her bag of tricks for making learning not only fun but also more productive. You'll not only learn how to think like a professional tutor but also discover ways to create an environment that will make your child enjoy doing homework and learning new information.

From the use of technology to helping the child become more organized and efficient when it comes to studying, the ideas this guide contains will make the role of being a parent-tutor much, much easier.

'Not all the advice in this book will work for every student, nor should it,' explains the author. 'Some recommendations are meant for younger children, while others are meant for middle or high school students. Don't feel you need to embrace every technique in this book instead, make use of the bits and pieces that strike you as worth a try.'

By familiarizing yourself with all the tools Ruben suggests and explains how to use, you can find the ones which will best suit your child and situation. Then give them a try and see what happens. I think you'll discover that at least some of them will pay dividends and work well.

This is a particularly helpful book for either parents who are homeschooling their children or the parents of a child who is having difficulty in school. You'll find that this guide will provide some inspiration to help you help your youngster.
