Falls Church, VA, May 15, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Ralph Perrino, Director of Northern Virginia Tutoring Service, and long-time professor of Sociology at Northern Virginia Community College, has authored a book titled Issues, Strategies, and Concerns in Education Today – A Collection of Essays. This compilation of essays is the culmination of twenty years as a business owner and thirty-one years in the classroom. Dr. Perrino has seen first-hand the confusion and frustration parents and students experience as they proceed through the K-12 and college years.
Dr. Perrino and his wife, Denise Perrino, who co-authored several of the essays in the book, have a combined sixty-five years of experience in the field of education. This book was prepared with the hope that it will help parents manage the issues facing them and their children. It is also intended to serve as a guide for parents and students as they maneuver through the myriad of issues, options, and decisions necessary for successful completion of the education process.
Topics covered are diverse: the socialization process and its impact on children and learning; when and how to hire a tutor; using theater techniques to teach math, science, and other core subject areas; when, where, and whether a student should go to college; the digital divide between social classes and the impact of that divide on the achievement gap; the impact of technology on higher education; community college as a financial and academic option for many students; the college funding process, and many more topics of interest to parents, students, and educators.
The book is available by contacting Northern Virginia Tutoring Service at www.nvtutoring.com, or in hard copy and Kindle versions at www.amazon.com.
