Information For Parents

Got questions? We’ve got answers.

Are the sessions virtual or in person?

Both are currently available if you live in the Pensacola, Florida, area. If in person is preferred then a meeting place is agreed upon between the teacher and family.

Virtual sessions via Zoom and Google Meet are also available for students in any location.

How do I schedule a session?

Sessions can be requested by simply emailing thepanhandletutor@gmail.com, attending our free consultation, or completing this form for more information.

What should the student expect during a session?

The student should be prepared to review the subject material that’s been requested. Come prepared with your notes, any homework, pencil, paper, and any other tools you might need to complete the lesson. The teacher will review the lesson and continue to practice to ensure understanding.

How do I know if a tutor would help my student?

Before a tutor is assigned to your student, our Education Consultant will meet with the family and child to assess the need for a tutor, and where your child is struggling or could use enrichment.

Are group sessions available?

Yes! Please complete this form and we’ll be in touch when there is a small group available for your student’s age.

What is an Education Consultant?

An Education Consultation is where we visit with the family to assess the academic situation, as well as, get to know the student a little so that we can ensure a strong match with a great tutor whom they look forward to working with. Many factors impact how students perform in school including missing or weak academic foundations, lack of ability to understand how best to organize homework, the learning style of the child and other outside influences. The consultation helps us understand all of these factors. The Education Consultant will also work with the client to establish goals and expectations for our tutoring sessions, prior to making a recommendation on an appropriate enrollment.
