WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - As students are settling back into the school year, tutoring can help your child get ahead in the classroom.
Indiana Youth Institute President and CEO Bill Stancykiewicz said the majority of students need some sort of help outside the classroom.
Stancykiewicz said a stigma surrounding tutoring can keep some students from seeking help or asking questions.
Stancykiewicz said students shouldn't be afraid to speak up and parents can help.
"It's something parents definitely need to be proactive about. They shouldn't be afraid to ask for help. You need to be able to speak up for your child and make sure they are taking advantage of all their opportunities and overcoming their challenges," said Stancykiewicz.
If a student is struggling in school or with a class, Stancykiewicz said a child should talk to their teacher, dial the Rose Hulman homework hotline, or even go online to find additional tutoring help.
