  1. The noun clause in this sentence is the subject of the verb, "is."

    What do you think the noun clause is?

  2. That's an awkward sentence.

    The main verb in that sentence is "is" and rest of the predicate is this: "hire a tutor who can help them with their math skills."

    What's left?
