Merit Question and Answer
Too Embarrassed to Go to Huntington Learning Center


Area of Concern: Reading Comprehension

Submitted by: Parent

Grade Level: Special Education

Competency: Below Level

My son is in 6th grade. Reading comprehension is a struggle. In the past, we have sent him to Huntington Learning Center to work with a tutor. Now he tells me he is too embarrassed to continue going. Can your online reading comprehension software be used by parents at home? Does a tutor need to oversee his work?
