Does My Child Need A Tutor?

Does My Child Need A Tutor?

 

Students are tutored for a variety of reasons: To improve the understanding of concepts in a given subject area, to hone in on a specific study skills such as note taking or test preparation, to further enrich a student’s experience beyond the standard curriculum, or to prepare for school/college entrance exams. Tutors can also relieve the emotional tension created when parents try to assist their children with homework. It is important to be clear on your reasons for seeking a tutor.

 When faced with a youngster who is struggling in school, he/she may need a tutor to get the extra practice, attention and confidence needed to improve his/her performance in school.

 

 

What to Look For in a Tutor 

• Look for someone who specializes in teaching students your child’s age. If your child has special needs, ask their teacher for some recommendations.

• If your child is in middle school or high school and simply needs extra help in one subject area, consider older students who have excelled in the subject. This is cheaper and can be as effective as a professional tutor. Place a call to your high school’s guidance counselor’s office and ask if they can suggest an honors student who might be interested in the job.

• Consider if your child has a particular learning style and ask the tutor to describe his/her special training and the different modalities he/she uses when working with students. 

• After 6 hours of school, your child will not be looking forward to more school. Sessions should engage your child with interesting activities. A tutor is not your child’s teacher, and while the sessions need to be structured and serious, they also need to be enjoyable.

• Set realistic goals; collaborate with the tutor, and ideally the teacher, to create a plan from which the tutor will teach. Consider the possibility that your child might need to meet with the tutor more than once a week. The tutor should be willing to communicate with your child’s teacher on a regular basis.

• Expect a tutor to give an honest report of your child’s progress. In addition, get an assessment of your child’s progress from his/her teacher. Parents should realize and accept that under the best of circumstances their child’s abilities and skills may improve slowly. 

• Be sure to ask for a tutor’s credentials and references of experience. 

How Parents Can Support the Tutor

• Be sure you and your child can commit to the time requirements of tutoring. This might mean rearranging or eliminating some after school activities.

• Be respectful of the tutor’s time. Be on time for sessions and if you need to cancel, do so as soon as your know. 

• If you want to discuss your child’s progress in depth, schedule a time separate from the tutoring session to do so. This way the tutor is prepared and can speak candidly without your child feeling judged. 

• Prepare your child to be a participant in the tutoring by discussing with him/her the purpose and benefits of such assistance.

 

There are many excellent tutoring services available on Cape Cod. 

Seals and Whales—Cape Cod’s Ancient Residents

Graceful, content and gliding thru the deep dark depths of the ocean, seals and whales go unnoticed until they surface to take their next life-giving breath of air. It is during this phase of their swim that we humans get to see these wondrous animals as they go about the business of surviving in the waters that surround Cape Cod.
As serene as seals and whales appear to be today it wasn’t always that way. Both of these animals were hunted extensively by early colonists as well as Native Americans. Whales give away their position by spouting white spumes on each exhaustive breath as they chase tiny plankton for their food. Seals love to haul out and rest on sandbars to sun themselves and then howl with contentment. These maneuvers made seals and whales easy to spot and hunt by early native peoples and also by the colonists. Native Americans would spy whales from the high hills of Cape Cod and chase after them in their canoes. Often when hunger would be at its worst mother nature would send a herd of pilot whale, also known as blackfish, shoreward and when the tide receded these animals were left high and dry. Blackfish Creek in Wellfleet earned its name from the sometimes hundreds of pilot whales that would strand as the tides of Cape Cod Bay roared out, emptying the narrow channels that the whales had wedged themselves into. Almost everything from the whale was used—oil from blubber for lighting, meat for food and bones for tools. It became so easy to hunt seals and whales along the near shore that they became scarce and harder to find. When local seal /whale populations declined the early settlers of Cape Cod built sturdy ships from native expanses of forest to chase the whales further from shore. Some ships were sailed all the way to the Pacific Ocean on three year voyages chasing whales and would not return until every wooden cask was filled with the valuable whale oil. Fortunes were made on a single trip and the large amount of stately homes built by Cape Cod sea captains testifies to that fact.
            Harbor and gray seals have been here for many centuries. Archeological digs reveal that Native Americans utilized this available resource as evidenced by the seal bones found in local digs. Some seals can weigh 800 pounds and this provided an abundance of food. The dense fur (which is actually hair) was quite insulating and waterproof-- a wonderful and welcome combination for clothing and blankets on those frigid winter nights. I’d wager that the man who brought home a fat seal solidified his stature in the home, tribe and community. It must have been quite something to see native people chasing seals and whales form dugout canoes.
            In the early twentieth century, seals to some degree had become a nuisance to the point that it was felt they were depleting the fish stocks that fed many Cape Cod families. As late as the 1960’s seals had a bounty on their heads. Out of work Cape Codder’s would be paid a few dollars for every seal nose brought into a local town hall to verify its kill. In 1972 the Marine Mammal Act provided seals and whales full protection under the law. No more hunting and no further reductions in their numbers. As a result seal populations have exploded; whales not so much due to low productivity in reproduction. However, many are cautiously optimistic about their ultimate survival.
            Today seals and whales have come full circle. Once hunted to near extinction by early colonists and Native Americans, the seal and whale populations have evolved from preferred food to summertime performers. Every summer seal tour operators and whale watch vessels “hunt” their prey and “shoot” them with reckless abandon with the latest in digital photography.
            Seals are often spotted by tour boats at the sandbars and shallow waters near ocean inlets. From these inlets and gazing out at the Atlantic, whale spouts are often seen merely a half mile offshore. The Cape’s vibrant sea life is making a resounding comeback. Cape Cod’s ancient residents—the seals and whales have become symbolic of the sandbar we call home and now are entertainers to the many curious tourists who flock to see them aboard local tour boats every summer. Local tour boat captains are all knowledgeable about these graceful animals, where to find them, and would be happy to take you out to see experience “the show”.
