About Tutor Royal Instructors

At Tutor Royal we believe it takes a village to educate a child. That being said, with the parents written consent we would love to communicate with your child’s teacher. From viewing teacher made websites, to sending updates and progress reports to ensuring we are aware of the teachers recommendations and concerns for the student, we are here to help!

Of course! Anytime you wish! But rest assured as part of our Free Academic Planning session your child’s tutor will conduct an initial assessment and meet with you to discuss the results. However, we have also found that the best way to communicate tutoring needs is to meet with our Center Director or other full-time staff. Here’s why: The tutor knows a limited amount of information – his or her academic performance. The staff knows this same information, in great detail, plus all of the information you and your child’s teachers and others shared with us as well. They are in the best position to work with you to make improvements to the tutoring plan and to discuss how we can help your child in the most effective way possible.
