Well, you will obviously have to help your kid handle calculus at a very early stage of his or her education.

Children who score well in mathematics are often regarded as ‘brainy’. If not brainy, at least you do not want your child to be ‘the stupid child’ in class. What can you do to get your kid ready to handle the pressure of a subject like calculus? Irrespective of the school your child goes to, he or she is sure to find difficulty in learning calculus as most schools depend on the old and tried method of teaching mathematics – studying the formulas.
One good option is to make sure that your child has a good base of the other branches of mathematics like algebra, trigonometry and geometry that is taught during the very early years of his education. Calculus depends largely on ideas and concepts from all these subjects. Hence, if you observed that your child brings home not so good grades for these three subjects, you should start tutoring him at the earliest.
Unfortunately, parents often find it difficult to invest time and sit with their children to help them learn. In such cases, you should definitely find a good tutor to give your child a little help handling mathematics. Finding a tutor is not difficult. If not in your locality, you can always depend on the Internet to find a good tutor for your child.
Parents nowadays find that online tutoring is an easier and more effective option when compared to traditional tutoring sessions. The reasons why parents opt for online tutoring are many. Students can learn from the comfort of their home and during their preferred time rather than wasting time going to the tutors place and having to schedule other activities around the tutoring sessions.
Internet provides a good marketplace for tutors around the globe. This is a huge benefit for a student who is looking for a tutor on-line. There is a very good probability that you choose the best tutor for your kid. Obviously, there are some pitfalls which can be easily avoided if you do a little research before investing money in online tutoring.
Online tutoring also provides you the opportunity to sit with your child during the tutoring sessions to understand how well your child is grasping the subject.

Your child will also learn better when he or she has one-to-one interactions with the tutor thereby benefiting from the opportunity to clear any doubts. This is often not possible in schools as teachers there will have two divide their attention among a large number of students and also deal with the pressure of having to complete the syllabus within a short timeframe.
