Personal Tutor/Private Tutor
Many parents are in search of a math tutor, reading tutor, or writing tutor for their children. Remediation for children can be found through various facets of educational support. Most private tutors work as free-lancers, scheduling weekly session times and rates at their own convenience. Anyone can claim themselves a tutor, even without having professional credentials, teaching experience, or a degree.
Some parents easily find a college or high school student in the neighborhood, a retired teacher, or even a working teacher who can tutor their children toward success. Others try countless tutors, spending lots of money for one-on-one service that just doesn’t seem to work. Sometimes, reinforcing concepts once or twice a week for a child is not enough when continual support is needed. What to do?
Tutoring centers, such as Kumon, Huntington, and Sylvan follow a different approach, much like that of a traditional school, with teacher designed lessons and implementation. Children are diagnostically tested and then put on an individual path toward remediation, focusing on areas of weakness and strengthening study skills.
Prices and times depend on the owners of these franchises. Again, for some kids this works. For others who need a deviation from the traditional school strategy, a more innovative program is needed to scaffold their skills.
Time4Learning is an online program designed with many purposes. It can be used as a homeschool core curriculum, a supplement to home school or traditional school, a summer school replacement, or for daily remediation and enrichment. The interactive software is developed for preschool to twelfth grade students with complete math and language arts curriculum, along with additional content in social studies, science, and foreign language learning.

I LOVE Time4Learning! It holds the attention of my kids, plus I can keep track of their learning without hovering over their shoulders.
I am really pleased with Time4Learning. It has made a world of difference in my son's academic performance in school!
Time4Learning provides activities, lessons, assessments, reports, and educational games, making it a valuable resource for parents and students alike. Parents can be kept informed on their child’s’ progress daily and are able to adjust levels so that the program addresses specific needs and areas of interest. See Demo Lessons.
For convenience purposes, lessons are completed at the discretion of each family. Parents and children decide when, how long, and which lessons to do. With the ability to skip, review and build upon lessons, children are given ongoing support while gaining independent work study skills. Many parents find Time4Learning an excellent program that provides continuity and fun while engaging students in their learning. Click here to sign- up.
Staying involved in your child’s educational journey is most important, yet sometimes difficult when relinquishing certain control to an after-school program. The Time4Learning program offers extensive support and tracking systems for parents.
Parents are consistently provided with a scope and sequence, lessons plans, and the ability to track their own child’s progress, making scores, assignments and assessments readily available at all times. With the ability to print these plans and assignments, parents can easily create a home-school portfolio, saving time and helping in the overall organization. Parental support is also given through our online forum where discussions and questions may be posted.
Time4Learning is very effective in its goal to captivate and educate students simultaneously. It is increasingly less costly and more comprehensive than other programs. Parents who are looking for a daily, interesting way for their child to learn via the modern technology of a computer would be best accommodated using Time4Learning. Sign up for Time4Learning and begin using the many resources. We look forward to helping foster the growth and journey of your child.

The Time4Learning Program Structure
Time4Learning has been refined through years of feedback from educators, parents, and students. Subjects are organized into chapters composed of interactive lessons, printable worksheets, quizzes and tests. Students are guided through the activities at their own pace by an automated system.
When students log in, they choose a subject, select a chapter, pick a lesson and complete the activities. A bright green arrow tells them where they left off, and completed work is clearly labeled with a check-mark or a gold star. Visual and auditory prompts guide students through the lessons making them easy for young learners to follow, and an online playground (controlled by parents) rewards and motivates them to finish their lessons.
Parents get access to printable lesson plans, teaching tools, detailed reporting and parental support through our online Parent Forum.
Does your child have different achievement levels for math and language arts? No problem. Time4Learning lets you set each individual subject at the appropriate graded level, making this program great for special needs and gifted students.
