MILWAUKEE -- No one understands more than a parent what your child needs to succeed.

With social interaction possibly out for this school year, there is another resource parents are considering: Tutoring.

The Better Business Bureau serving Wisconsin shares what to look out for in the person you hire.

First, know your options. There are many types of tutoring. This includes home lessons, one-on-one sessions, or online instruction.

Next, ask for referrals. The BBB has a section where they rate tutoring services. This includes reviews from past customers.

Lastly, know your budget. Prices of a Milwaukee tutor can vary, depending on the tutor's experience level.

The Milwaukee Public Library is providing access to free tutoring through an online program called Brainfuse. You must be a library cardholder to access this service.

There are also virtual storytimes for children in English and Spanish every weekday morning and some library locations offer curbside pickups for books.
