will a tutor really be beneficial to a child's learning development or will it only hinder the development of independent learning?

There are really kids who needs close monitoring when it comes to their academic development and that's when tutors are needed. You have to check if your kid belongs to that classification or is just plain lazy to study.

I never got to experience having a tutor although i so wanted to have one when i was younger... way way younger... anyways, with what i have observed those kids that had tutors had really good grades in my class.. but what i noticed is that some tutors spoonfeed and so i doubt if they really learned. Their were also some who really did a great job in giving tutorials. Check the tutor first if he or she can really help your child.

Tutoring is really expensive. But if he needs it and you can afford it then go. It can really be painful for parents to see their child struggle with learning. So I am all for giving them the assistance they need.

I dont think tutoring can hinder independent learning. It is assistance.

It's for their future so I say that it is beneficial. I dont think it is responsible on the parent's part to ignore their kids needs especially if they can afford it.
