Private online tutoring for students with special needs in New York City, NY

Receive personally tailored lessons from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting who can support students with special needs. The best tutor isn't always located where you are. We help you connect with online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling.

Varsity Tutors understands what it's like to watch the student in your life struggle academically, so we're delighted to match you and your student with the professional New York City special education tutoring services your student needs to reach for their goals.

Language-based learning disabilities, or LBLDs, can limit a student's ability to express themselves, follow a story, learn how to write, or perform math problems (among other things). While many instructors lack the specialized skills and experience to handle these problems, New York City special education tutors can help your student reach for their academic potential. Please continue reading to learn more about how private instruction could be a good fit for your student.

What life and academic skills can my student review during New York City special education tutoring sessions?

No two students with learning differences have the exact same needs, and a New York City special education tutor can tailor their approach to your student's unique situation. An instructor can begin by reviewing your student's 504 Plan or IEP (Individualized Education Plan) to get a general sense of what they need. Of course, actually spending time with your student can allow your student's private instructor to design New York City special education tutoring sessions around the specific skills your student needs help with.

For instance, many students with learning differences could use help with their organizational skills. A private instructor can help your student color-code their notebook to make it easier to locate the material they need. If your student has to do a longer project, their private instructor can also make them a study calendar that breaks it down into smaller daily tasks to make time management easier.

Likewise, New York City special education tutors can provide generalized homework help for all of your student's academic subjects. If your student has a hard time doing math problems in their head, visual aids such as counting cubes and number lines can make math homework easier. Your student's instructor can also take some of the burden of homework off of you, giving you more time to tend to household tasks.

What benefits can a New York City special education tutor near me provide?

Many students with learning differences struggle in a classroom setting because they associate it with falling behind their peers and getting scolded by the teacher. Working with a private instructor allows your student to study in a one-on-one learning environment without the same emotional baggage, allowing them to develop self-confidence in their own abilities.

Since your student is the only pupil in their New York City special education tutoring sessions, their needs always come first. For example, many students find it easier to ask for help in a private setting, especially if they trust their instructor. If your student isn't shy about asking for help, they can receive clarification before a simple misunderstanding spirals out of control.

Similarly, a private instructor can design study sessions around your student's unique learning style for maximal efficiency. An auditory learner can repeat information aloud to themselves to make it easier to remember, while a visual student can use infographics to help illustrate key concepts. Your student can also complete extra practice problems during their study sessions until they get the hang of a particular topic.

Session summaries by tutors for students with special needs

Special Education Tutoring review by Courtney in New York City, NY
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 New York City, NY
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 New York City, NY
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 New York City, NY
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 New York City, NY
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.
