What year in?

I want to thank VT for connecting me with my English tutor. I'm a 49 yr old that enrolled back in college to complete my degree and I was having the most difficult time meeting the demands of my writing assignments. But fortunately, I was matched with an educator that has made what seemed hopeless in my efforts to write academic papers effectively a piece of cake.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

Buffalo English Tutoring FAQ

If you are struggling with English topics, reach out to Varsity Tutors and let us help you connect with qualified Buffalo English tutors. In a regular classroom, students do not always get the personalized attention they need to fully grasp a concept. However, with Buffalo English tutors, you can spend as much time as needed on a concept until it is fully understood. A mentor can do more than help you with your studying, however. They can also teach you how to study more efficiently and can help you become more confident.

How does Buffalo English tutoring differ from learning in a conventional classroom?

When your student studies with Buffalo English tutors, you don't have to worry whether or not the instructor has the time to spend on each concept. This is different from a traditional classroom where a teacher must stick to the curriculum and pace they have set. Also, teachers have a full class of pupils they must concentrate on, which doesn't always give them time to give students individualized attention.

Private instructors can do exactly that, though. Since they work with students one-on-one, your student can spend as much time as needed on a topic they're struggling with. Additionally, Buffalo English tutors do not have to use just one style of teaching. They can try out different techniques until they find a method that meshes well with your student's preferred learning style.

If you are having difficulties understanding how to do more than simply proofread for grammatical errors and you're an audible learner, the instructor can focus on short lectures or engaging conversations that go over this topic in more detail.

If you have a student in middle school that is having trouble understanding how to determine synonyms and antonyms and is a visual learner, the instructor can use tangible studying aids, such as flashcards. When the private mentor uses a student's strengths while teaching, it can help improve information retention.

Buffalo English tutoring also differs from conventional classroom learning in another way. A student can choose the speed at which they'd like to learn and can decide where to focus their energy on. For instance, if you have a high school student who already understands how to construct an argument that is logical, well-reasoned, and supported by evidence, it is unnecessary to repeatedly review this concept. Instead, they can put their energy into something that is more complex for them, such as practicing proper grammar or learning how to edit and revise. By encouraging your student to study their weaker areas first, it can help your student be better prepared for their schoolwork and can make study sessions more productive.

What are some of the advantages of working with Buffalo English tutors near me?

One of the first things that Buffalo English tutors can do when working with you is to administer an assessment or a few practice tests. These can provide them with important knowledge on which subjects you have already built a solid foundation of knowledge in and where improvement is still needed. This can help them design lesson plans that aren't just flexible but also are targeted at improving a student's unique learning needs.

Another important advantage to Buffalo English tutoring is the relationship you can form with your personal mentor. The mentor can take time to get to know you, such as finding out the goals you are working to achieve, where you believe their strengths and weaknesses are, and even finding out your personal hobbies. This allows the instructor to design lessons that are based on your personality, which can help them stay engaged and interested in the lessons.

The bond between a student and instructor can also help during Buffalo English tutoring in other areas. For example, the private mentor can help your student learn to keep a positive attitude, even when exploring a topic that is more challenging. They can also give your student a safe place to feel comfortable talking about the areas that are proving more difficult to understand.

The instructor can provide instant and useful feedback to your student as they work through the different topics covered in English. For example, if you have an elementary student who is still struggling with reading, the instructor can step in and correct mistakes he or she is making as they occur. This can keep simple errors from becoming persisting habits. The mentor can also help students of all ages set reasonable goals to work toward during their study sessions. The confidence of a student can improve as each milestone is met. Another beneficial part of having a private instructor is the advice they can offer to help improve the quality of a lesson. This can include having your student work on their reading comprehension, organization skills, and their prioritization and time management.

How can I find time for me or my student to take part in Buffalo English tutoring?

Are you concerned about how you're going to find time for your student to work with a private instructor? Don't worry — we can help. We do the work to find you a private tutor who can meet at a time that doesn't interfere with your student's other obligations, either in-person or online.

By participating in online studying, it can be even easier for you to find time for your student's lessons, because a long commute is unnecessary. Instead of meeting up in-person, your student will connect with Buffalo English tutors using our Live Learning Platform. With this platform, online study sessions can be just as efficient and engaging as in-person tutelage. To begin Buffalo English tutoring, the only thing that your student will need is a connection to the internet and a compatible device, such as a tablet, smartphone, or computer. Then you can decide on a place that is comfortable for your student to study. This can include somewhere like your home, the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, or a favorite coffee shop.

The Live Learning Platform has several features that can help you stay engaged in the lessons. These features include a shared document editor, a digital whiteboard, and a video chat. The video chat is important because it lets you hear, see, and speak with your instructor.

So, when a personal mentor is giving a lecture about a concept you find difficult, it is easy to stop the lecture and ask questions or request clarification. The shared document editor and digital whiteboard are useful for letting the instructor assign students sample problems to solve. They can watch as you work on solving the problems and step in should a mistake occur or if you become confused. The platform also records all study sessions, which can be very beneficial should you need to go back to a prior lesson and review something that the instructor had gone over.
