Tutors and Trainers
Tutors work in various capacities. Many elementary schools, high schools, and for-profit schools employ tutors to help in the instruction of their students. Tutors encourage the understanding of standard school subjects such as reading and math, assist with questions regarding homework, and work to improve a student's level of literacy. More importantly, tutors help students develop good learning habits. Many tutors associated with schools are paid employees; most have college degrees applicable to the subjects they tutor, for example a degree in education, mathematics, or English.
