Research shows that parental involvement and participations play a fundamental role in increasing the level of educational attainment of their children. Parents engage some tutors at home for making up the academic deficiencies and for increasing the academic abilities of their children. For this purpose, professional tutors are appointed for tutoring the children at home and gradually this trend of tutoring is being converted into a tradition rather an academic requirement
