Private online tutoring for students with special needs in Raleigh-Durham, NC

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 that it can be difficult to watch your student struggle with academics if they have special education needs, which is why we want to help pair your child with a Raleigh-Durham special education tutor. Some examples of learning difference that require special education include autism, processing disorders, dyslexia, and dysgraphia. If your student was diagnosed with any of these conditions, consider connecting to Varsity Tutors to begin Raleigh-Durham special education tutoring.

What skills are covered when working with Raleigh-Durham special education tutors?

An instructor understands that students not only need help with their schoolwork, but they also need help with skills such as organization and test-taking. For students with special education needs, traditional classrooms can cause learning difficulties. It can be hard for students to keep up with the pace of a classroom, especially if their specific learning difference has to do with the processing of information. Students who have dyslexia, or example, can have slow reading and writing speeds.

If you have a student with dyslexia, their Raleigh-Durham special education tutor can design lesson plans that move at their pace, so there's no need to worry about keeping up with others. During these private lessons, your student and their instructor can also pre-review lesson plans before your student learns certain topics in class. This way, they can receive a head start and feel more confident and caught up in the classroom.

Raleigh-Durham special education tutoring can help your student stay on task when it comes to their education. Students with autism can benefit from color-coded organization. When working with a private teacher, your student can have color-coded to-do lists, different colored school supplies for each subject, and even color-coded notes for homework and classwork. These approaches to organization can help your student feel less frustrated when going to school every day.

What are the benefits of working with a Raleigh-Durham special education tutor near me?

One of the most beneficial aspects of Raleigh-Durham special education tutoring is the one-on-one interactions your student can have with their private educator. Many students with special education needs have a hard time learning in group settings. Sometimes their needs require individualized attention.

Through private learning sessions, your student can receive that one-on-one approach to learning that they need. Through these personal sessions, your student can feel comfortable enough with their instructor to express their academic insecurities and educational concerns. Your student's instructor can use this information to design lesson plans that can help your student feel more confident and connected to their schoolwork.

Your student's instructor can also use 504 Plans or IEPs provided by your student's school as starting points when putting together personalized study sessions.

A student with dysgraphia, for example, demands unique approaches to their coursework. Dysgraphia affects a student's handwriting, typing, and spelling skills. To help your student, Raleigh-Durham special education tutors can introduce your student to alternative tools and educational methods. Your student can practice pinching to help them grip a pencil. They can also use dictation software on a mobile device. Speaking words before writing them can help students with dysgraphia learn how to write in a way that is tailored to their needs.

Whether your student has dysgraphia or another special education requirement, Raleigh-Durham special education tutors can use alternative teaching techniques to help your student grow.

How do I connect to a Raleigh-Durham special education tutor near me?

Your student can work with their private special education instructor in-person or online. If they choose the online study option, they gain access to the Live Learning Platform. This platform is designed to connect students and their instructors. Video chat is available, so students can work face-to-face with their private instructors as if they were actually meeting in-person.

They can also use a shared document editor and virtual whiteboard for a hands-on approach to learning. Not only can your student use these tools, but so can you. Review recorded video chat study sessions to learn how you can help your student study for tests or complete their homework assignments. Thanks to the flexibility of the online platform, your student can learn from home, the James B. Hunt Jr. Library, or their school campus.

Convenience is key when it comes to learning for students with special education requirements and their families. As a parent, we know you are busy. We want to make things as easy for you and your student as possible, which is why we do the hard work of finding private instructors for your student.

Session summaries by tutors for students with special needs

Special Education Tutoring review by Courtney in Raleigh-Durham, NC
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 Raleigh-Durham, NC
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 Raleigh-Durham, NC
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 Raleigh-Durham, NC
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 Raleigh-Durham, NC
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.
