Looking for someone with some flexibility who is near by.
I have a budget of about $40.00 a week or $10.00/hour

I agree about not finding someone for that price. I am a certified teacher and I used to tutor before I had two kiddos running around the house. I felt so bad for young families, so I only charged $45 and only did families from church. Many of my friends charged much more than that.

I don't know what they charge, but you might call http://www.risingscholars.com/ they are tutors that come to the home.

That is the price range for getting a good Jr. or Sr. in high school (maybe a college kid too). They can be really responsible but you might have to provide a bit more direction to the teen.

Best wishes.

Guidance counselors can usually give you ideas on who tutors. A lot of tutors are teachers who tutor on the side for extra money for an hour at a time.

I've not heard of any tutor that starts out less than $40/hour and that is on the low end. You might be able to find a college student to help.

Good luck.

I'm not sure you're going to be able to find anyone for $10.00 an hour. It sounds like you have an extremely marketable skill yourself though. Maybe you could trade some interior decorating in exchange for quality tutoring? It's just a thought.

May I suggest you take a trip over to Home Educators Resource in Lewisville. You can get info at www.homeeducatorsresource.com. They are geared towards homeschool and sell a wide variety of curriculum for all kinds of learning styles. One that comes to mind is "Math You See" which is based on manipulatives that lets the visual and kinetic learner understand math in a more physical sense than just a jumble of numbers. They also teach classes there, so they know what they are doing. A tutor is a good idea. However, you may also need to take a different approach to his learning style for him to grasp the concepts. This is one fieldtrip that would be worth your while. By giving your child mastery of this subject now, you will be helping him immensely in the future!

I would highly recommend Parliament Tutors if you are looking for private in-home tutoring...

My daughter used them and they have some neat tools on their website, such as a question of the day and diagnostic exams.
