I searched for a tutor to supplement our foreign language, but I never found one that I could afford. If you can find one, a tutor can provide the missing ingredient for some kids. A classroom setting can go too fast or too slow, but it may help some kids. If you take a class at a community college, however, be VERY careful about it. Sometimes those classes add a level of foreign "culture" that you may not want your teenagers exposed to!
For college-bound teenagers that really struggle with foreign language, there are still solutions. First, you can find a college that doesn't require a foreign language. Second, you can find a college that doesn't require a foreign language to enter, they only require a foreign language to graduate the college, so you can take it while you are there. Third, you can take community college classes in foreign language, where every quarter or semester equates to a whole year of high school foreign language and you can quickly get the admission requirements you need.
