I completely agree with the advice already shared in regard to specific skills for a tutor and the suggested organizations. However, I would also add that you want to find a tutor who is kind, patient and who genuinely loves children. You want someone who connects with your child and with whom your child will feel a connection. Consider having your child present at least for some portion of the interview and observe their interaction. You can learn a lot from tone of voice, body language, etc. In the end, children will most eagerly learn with someone with whom they have positive relationship. Good luck!
