  • Absolutely. There should be no problem. I have a granddaughter who had her aunt as a teacher a few years ago. It did not present a problem. I would have your dd to address her tutor the same way she will address her as a teacher. That was the only minor glitch with my story.

  • Should be fine. It is a professional arrangement.

  • I know teachers that do that even while they have the student during the school year. She refused to be compensated.

  • Sure. Not a problem. Many teachers tutor on the side. As long as the teacher is not currently the teacher of her class...no worries. And what a nice way for the teacher to understand her areas she is good at and the areas she needs improvement in or how to teach so she can understand.

  • Would this teacher do it? I have found that the tutors are usually a different breed than teacher. Good luck.
