In Home Tutoring Is a Safe Way to Have Your Child Tutored During the COVID 19 Epidemic. However, There is an Online Option.
In Home Tutoring Means Less Exposure To Other Children, Adults, and Potentially Contaminated Surfaces
Most tutoring services use a "flow through" model: students visit a room within a physical structure to be tutored, most often sitting in groups within one common room. Even if in a 1 on 1 tutoring arrangement, they are usually in one room with other students and adults, or grouped into two to three rooms - still with other students and adults present. Because coronavirus can live on surfaces for up to three days, your child may be potentially exposed to all the people that flow through the area they are being tutored in. I'm sure these companies are taking all the protective measures possible (they are responsible companies and survived for years because they are) however, there is still a risk of transmission.
Isn't having a person come into my home more risky than having my child tutored outside my home? In a word - no. Because the virus is so "sticky" your child may be bringing home droplets from all the people he was exposed to (as well as the surfaces in that provider's tutoring area). When I come to your home your student is only exposed to one person rather than multiple children and surfaces. We will be working on a surface you choose, one you can make sure is clean before and after I leave.
I'm healthy and will not come to your home if there are the slightest signs I am sick. Because of the work I do, I'm practicing limited social exposure at this time. I will remain in one place when working with your child and that area can be cleaned as soon as I leave. I will use a hand sanitizer before entering your home.
If your child needs academic help to remain current while out of school or remedial work long term, my services are a safer option.
If still concerned about your child's and families' safety, Keith can use Facetime or Skype and tutor and coach parents without physically coming to your home. Working online is not quite as fun as having Keith jumping around your kitchen using rhymes and gestures to memorize vowel combinations - but it gets the job done.
