If only there were a resource closer to home that was easy, free, and able to provide the same quality of service. But there is: you. Top professional tutor Marina Koestler Ruben empowers you to take a do-it-yourself approach to your child's after-school enrichment, while sparing you the expense of private tutoring fees. As a parent-tutor, you will learn how provide holistic academic support for your children and create an intellectual environment in the home--strengthening your relationship and improving parent-child communication in the process.
