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!!

Washington DC English Tutoring FAQ

Varsity Tutors can find patient and experienced Washington DC English tutors if your student needs extra help with their English lessons in school.

/span> English can be a challenging subject not just for young learners but also for middle school and high school students. Some students might experience difficulty with reading comprehension, grammar, and vocabulary, while others might need extra help with constructing an essay. Whether it's understanding reading material or grammar-related assignments, Washington DC English tutoring could be a convenient and effective way for your child to work on their English skills and raise their confidence when using the language.

How is Washington DC English tutoring different from classroom learning?

One of the main differences between private lessons and classroom learning is the fact that your student gets to study in a one-on-one academic setting. During these personalized lessons, they receive 100% of the attention of their mentor, which is perfect when they have questions to ask about a topic they are struggling to understand. Since there are no other students to accommodate, a private instructor doesn't need to rush their explanations. You or your student can also ask as many questions as necessary in order to gain a deeper understanding of the topic you are trying to learn.

Washington DC English tutoring makes it easier for instructors to give instant feedback to students. If you or your child make a spelling mistake or have some issues with grammar and sentence structure, your mentor can correct these immediately. Instant feedback is important not just for correcting mistakes on the spot but also for making sure that you and your student are able to apply the new knowledge on future exercises.

Private sessions with Washington DC English tutors don't need to follow a strict curriculum, so you and your student can skip topics you already know and focus on the ones that you find challenging. With this flexible approach, your student can pour their efforts into exercises that can have the most impact on their skills. If your child already excels in identifying synonyms and antonyms but needs to improve their skills in conjugating verbs and using the proper tenses, their mentor can divide the lesson time in such a way that your student gets more practice on the topics they need help with. Skipping topics is something that your student can't do in a classroom set-up since the teacher needs to follow the curriculum and make sure that every student is able to grasp the topic they're studying before moving to the next one.

What are the benefits of having me or my student study with Washington DC English tutors near me?

Studying through Washington DC English tutoring allows you to be in charge of your own learning. We know that each student learns at a different rate, so if you or your child need more practice with spelling, writing proper commas in dates, city and states, and lists, or discriminating between transitive and intransitive verbs and direct and indirect objects, they can work on exercises with their tutor as long as they need to. They can even repeat topics if they're not yet confident with their skills, and their tutor can guide them throughout their practice.

If your student finds it hard to focus in the classroom, you will appreciate the distraction-free learning environment of private lessons. Since there are no other students or activities that might break your student's concentration, it could be easier for them to focus on the task at hand during their sessions with Washington DC English tutors. When they are focused, they can finish a task faster and could understand new concepts better.

Another benefit of private instruction is that your child gets to leverage their natural learning style when studying. Astute Washington DC English tutoring instructors can assess your child's strengths and weaknesses and use the information they find out about them when deciding on their teaching methods. If your student is a visual learner, for example, their instructor can teach them grammar rules through illustrations on flashcards instead of just writing the rules on a handout or list format. They can also use colored tables or graphs to help your child memorize verb tenses. If your student is an auditory learner, their mentor can include a lot of recitation or listening tasks when they are teaching your child new vocabulary words, synonyms and antonyms, or suffixes and prefixes.

Students are not the only ones who benefit from the assistance of Washington DC English tutors. Parents like you can also learn valuable teaching techniques you can use to continue providing support to your child outside of their tutoring sessions. Their instructor can share tips or recommend tools like text-to-audio apps your child can use to quickly convert text they want to read into an audio file so they can practice English using both sight and hearing.

The assistance that private instructors provide also helps parents free up some time to attend to their personal commitments. You can let your child work with expert tutors for their homework so you can finish other tasks you need to do.

How can I fit Washington DC English tutoring into my student's schedule?

We want to make it easier for you and your child to have access to quality private lessons. That's why we created a robust and user-friendly Live Learning Platform that allows your child to connect with the best Washington DC English tutors. Just let us know your student's schedule and we will find an instructor who doesn't only have the expertise but who is also able to conduct the lessons based on your student's availability.

Online lessons also give more flexibility when it comes to the location where your student can set-up their study area. As long as there's an internet connection, your student can log into our platform and meet their instructor via video chat. They can attend their lessons in the comfort of your home or at locations like the Georgetown Public Library or the Watha T Daniel-Shaw Library.

We've also made sure that you and your student have all the tools you will need for an interactive and smooth online session with Washington DC English tutors. When you and the mentor want to collaborate on an assignment, they can use the shared document editor on the platform. If the instructor wants to provide additional visual cues or prompts to your student when they are working on an exercise, they can use the digital whiteboard for this purpose.

Perhaps the most important feature of our platform is its capability to record the sessions. If your child needs to review any important reminder, new words they learned, or any other topic they discussed during their lessons, they can simply watch the recordings of past sessions on the platform.
