Varsity Tutors understands it can be difficult trying to help your child with special needs address their challenges, which is why we're happy to set you up with a Chicago special education tutor who can assist them in a one-on-one setting. Regardless of what your child's needs are, we can connect you with an experienced instructor who can help them with working through their challenges.

Chicago special education tutoring can give your child the tools they need to do their best in the classroom. Let's look at some of the benefits that come from private instruction.>What skills can a Chicago special education tutor near me cover?

Your child's private instructor is committed to helping them learn ways to work through the challenges they're facing in school. They can present information in a way that makes it easier for your student to understand by adjusting the reading level, creating fact grids, or presenting important information graphically. If your student is struggling in class or with their homework, Chicago special education tutoring can let them explore different learning options that work for them. Their private instructor can also design lessons based on the challenges of your student. For example, if they're currently following a 504 Plan or IEP, their instructor can put together lessons that support their ongoing learning program.

Chicago special education tutors can do more than review coursework with your student. They can also work with your student to help them build general learning skills that can carry them throughout their academic endeavors. For example, an academic mentor can help your student learn how to organize their notebooks so they can keep track of information more effectively, use calendars to remember upcoming tests and assignment due dates, and learn how to take notes more efficiently.

What are some of the benefits of working with Chicago special education tutors?

There are several advantages that come from working privately with a Chicago special education tutor. Private lessons allow your student to learn through custom-tailored instruction that has been designed specifically for their needs. Their academic mentor can consider the challenges associated with their learning differences while they're lesson planning. That way, your student is more likely to learn in a way that works best for them. Their personal instructor can even use more activities that speak to their personality and preferred learning styles, which can help make the learning experience more enjoyable and effective.

The benefits of private instruction aren't limited to your student. A private tutor can also help you learn how to create a supportive environment so that your student can continue their learning experience outside of tutoring sessions. You can learn how to use goal calendars to increase motivation, introduce routines can help your student remember to start on their homework as soon as they come home, or draw upon additional materials to enhance their study process. All of this can go a long way in helping your student learn how to work through the difficulties associated with their learning difference.

How convenient is Chicago special education tutoring?

Private instruction is designed to be as convenient and as flexible as possible. You can choose to have your student work in person with a skilled instructor or place them in online lessons via our Live Learning Platform. Both options give them the opportunity to study with someone who's experienced working with students with special needs and is committed to helping your student reach for their goals. However, online lessons give your student the chance to take part in engaging lessons from the comfort of their own home, a nearby public location like the Newberry Library, or any other convenient location with internet access. All you need is a compatible computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Studying over the Live Learning Platform places your student in the middle of the learning experience. Tools like video chat, a virtual whiteboard, and integrated questions make it easy for your student to collaborate with their academic mentor in a simulated classroom environment. Best of all, every online lesson is automatically recorded and saved on our platform, where it can be viewed by you and your student whenever you want. This is especially useful for the times when you need to review older lessons with your student.

Session summaries by tutors for students with special needs

Special Education Tutoring review by Courtney in Chicago, IL
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 Chicago, IL
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 Chicago, IL
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 Chicago, IL
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 Chicago, IL
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.
