Varsity Tutors knows it can be a struggle for parents as they try to help their children who have special education needs, so we're happy to be able to set you up with Boston special education tutoring. We're standing by to get you connected with a private instructor who has the experience and skills to meet your child's specific learning needs. It can be challenging to locate a tutor who knows how to work well with students who have learning differences like dysgraphia, dyslexia, or autism. Working with a qualified instructor can help your child enjoy their learning experience more.

What skills can a Boston special education tutor near me work on with my child?

If your student has autism and they easily get upset when a routine is changed or they're struggling with social skills, their specialist can use visual clues or some type of signal to indicate it's time to transition from one thing to another. Different methods can work with different students, so your student's private instructor can take the time to practice using different ways to cue a change in activity until they discover what works best specifically for your student. They can then inform you, your family, and the child's classroom teachers so you can all utilize this signal to help your student stay calm during the transition time from one activity to another.

Another example of skills that can help is with a child who has dysgraphia, which specifically affects their ability to form letters or space them correctly, make letters the correct size, or control a pencil or other writing utensil. There are technological solutions to this, such as dictation software, and your student's instructor could teach your child to use a program that helps them. They can help them practice pinching tweezers, joined chopsticks, and other implements like ice tongs. This can help them strengthen their muscles and train them to properly hold a pencil or pen.

There are many specific learning disabilities including dyscalculia and other processing or executive function difficulties. Boston special education tutoring can provide general skills like listening, reading, writing, and speaking in a way that targets your child's learning disabilities and uses their learning strengths.

What are some benefits of working with Boston special education tutors?

Maybe the greatest benefit of working with Boston special education tutoring is the highly individualized nature of the study sessions. All students are different, and those with learning differences can present in countless combinations of strengths and areas to improve upon. A classroom teacher can't devote their full attention to your student, but during their sessions, their tutor can. By finding the path to success for your student's unique combination of attributes, they can help your child feel self-confident.

One thing many students with learning disabilities can benefit from is previewing the subjects that are coming up in their classroom. They can get familiar with the information with their Boston special education tutor and feel more comfortable when learning about it again in the classroom with their peers. They'll have asked any questions they may have and learned gained foundational knowledge about the subject, which can help them keep up with the rest of the class. This is another way to boost their self-confidence.

Special education tutors know how to connect with students who have various learning disabilities. There are challenges your student faces that an expert special ed instructor can meet with empathy and understanding. They can use the kinds of techniques that work with your student to provide extra repetition and direct, structured teaching methods that mesh with your student's preferred learning style. They can provide helpful organization methods using color coding to help visual learners keep their study materials in order.

Boston special education tutors can provide benefits for you as a parent. You can have your student meet with their instructor either in person or online. If they meet online, there's no commute necessary, unless you have a quiet public place nearby that might help with their concentration such as a nearby branch of the Boston Public Library.

Online lessons are conducted over our Live Learning Platform through video chat so your student and their instructor can communicate in real-time. Other features like a shared document editor and a virtual whiteboard make it easy for them to work on assignments together. One feature that can be helpful for you and your child is that the platform automatically records all online sessions, providing you and your child with a library of resources to view at any time.

Session summaries by tutors for students with special needs

Special Education Tutoring review by Courtney in Boston, MA
We continued to work on the student's outline for his upcoming sales presentation. We also worked on his note taking skills by taking notes for his upcoming exam. We focused on keywords as well as the outline from his professor. I instructed him to finish his presentation and continue to study for the law exam. He also planned to review for his sales course.

Special Education Tutoring review by Glenn in Boston, MA
The student shared that he scored a B on his trig test from a few weeks ago. He and I spent most of the session working on his upcoming essay assignment for Into the Wild. We brainstormed ideas for the "lost chapter" and did a quick draft of the introductory paragraph. During the last ten minutes, I showed him how to quickly outline and write a "pro and con" essay for his 35 minute ACT essays. I also left him with a practice pro and con essay to work on: "Should student athletes be required to get good grades in order to play high school sports?"

Special Education Tutoring review by Benjamin in Boston, MA
Went over the planner, binders, and previous homework assignments to get a better insight of what the teachers are grading on and where he is at. We did some reading analysis and critical thinking of a short story/poem. We went over an assignment he has due soon, broke down what he needed to do and when he needed to do them in order to finish in time. Consistent planner usage and due dates are still something we need to work on. But so far, he is doing well.

Special Education Tutoring review by Ashley in Boston, MA
I met the student at his class. We met with his professor to discuss a missed assignment and come up with a plan to catch him up. Today's class was about the midterm and a new theory so I took notes on those items. We then scheduled a time to work on the late assignment.

Special Education Tutoring review by Teresa in Boston, MA
The student and I focused on his English test on "Tom Sawyer" which he has coming up on Friday. He knows the book well; there were just a few details here and there that he wasn't sure about. The goal is for him to practice writing everything down before he gets to class and before the end of the test. He did do some writing, though, and that was good.
