Many people like the formats used by places like Kumon, Huntington Learning, Sylvan and more. Many people find them expensive and hire a high school or college-aged student to tutor their kids and get similar results.
Go visit a Kumon and ask to see their materials. See if they offer a free trial.
It definitely is different if you want your child to get ahead versus helping a struggling child. You'll want to make sure there are no underlying issues. Doing many worksheets will not help a child with a learning disability.
My daughter started Kumon Reading since she was in kinder. It is not expensive program like Sylvan and Huntington. The tuition fee can range from $100-$135/subject/month depending on your contract term/location. Check at least 2-3 Kumon centers in your area to compare fee and policy.
Some centers may require minimum contract term like 3-6 months, but some centers offer month-to-month option.
Kumon Reading is really helping my daughter in the past 2 years, but Kumon program requires parent involvement. As a parent, youmust monitor your child's homework each week and you also must take your child to Kumon center once or twice a week.
My daughter did not like math program at Kumon after one month trial, Kumon math concept is "Speed+Accuracy=Mastery", so we did not continue math program. In my opinion, I think Kumon is not a right program for middle/high school students.81916
