My son has ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia AND a learning disability. He's always attended private schools for learning disabled children, but when we had to move, public school and an IEP were the only option. I called VT in desperation because he was failing across the board and was so distressed. I know he just needed the right environment in order to thrive. After a couple tearful sessions with the VERY PATIENT tutor, my son began to "get it". Once he did, there was no stopping him!

Richmond Special Education Tutoring FAQ

Watching your student struggle at school as the result of learning differences is never easy, but Varsity Tutors can get you connected with Richmond special education tutoring that can help.

While many students with special education needs receive support in the classroom, there are limits to those resources and still work to be done at home. Private instructors can be of assistance by reinforcing lessons from school, introducing new strategies, and offering support with class assignments, offering significant benefits for both students and parents.

How can a Richmond special education tutor near me work with my student?

Richmond special education tutors offer specialized instruction for students with all sorts of learning differences. Instructors are vetted to ensure they have the proper experience and expertise necessary to work with your student, assess the scope of their challenges, and develop a lesson plan that is tailored to their specific needs and learning style.

Whether your student is diagnosed with a condition like dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, or dysgraphia, their instructor will be able to incorporate best practices to help them tackle their challenges and adapt to their information processing differences. As professionals, they understand the importance of involving parents in the learning process and can work to help you understand the tactics being used and material being covered so you can support the efforts underway, too.

Most students with special education needs also have an Individual Education Plan or 504 Plan in place at school that guarantees and defines the supports and accommodations they will receive there. Richmond special education tutors can use these documents to inform their approach to working with your student. They can study your student's past to learn what tactics haven't worked, bypassing those methods to improve the efficiency of their sessions. They can build their lesson plans around supports that are currently in place at school to foster consistency in the instruction your student is receiving, which is critical to the success of any student with learning differences.

Perhaps most importantly, they can keep in communication with your student's team to make sure they know how your student is progressing outside of the classroom and that your student is always receiving the appropriate level of support.

What are the benefits of working with a Richmond special education tutor?

A significant benefit of working with a private instructor is that it provides more individual attention than your student might otherwise get. Their classroom teacher's attention is split among twenty or more students, and even if they are guaranteed the attention of an in-class aide, that aide is frequently juggling a caseload of students.

With Richmond special education tutoring, your student is guaranteed undivided attention. During this time, instruction is completely customized to your student's needs. If they're struggling with a concept and need some extra time studying it to get to an adequate level of comprehension, that's what will happen. If one explanation isn't making sense, their instructor can try approaching the topic from different angles. Because the sessions always take place on a one-to-one basis, your student will be able to ask questions the minute they occur to them and get answers then and there, building clarity and comprehension.

Another benefit of Richmond special education tutoring is that it can bolster your student's confidence. When a student finds themselves struggling or notices pronounced differences between themselves and their peers, their self-esteem can take a hit. In working with a Richmond special education tutor, this can be addressed in two ways.

First, they'll have an opportunity to develop skills that can help them improve their performance both academically and socially, narrowing the perception of some of these differences.

Second, these sessions can be a source of affirmation, with positive reinforcement for both effort and achievement. The end result can be not only an improvement in confidence but in an outlook on school in general.

How can I get my student started with a Richmond special education tutor near me?

Varsity Tutors can connect you with Richmond special education tutoring in as few as 24 hours. Our educational consultants work with you to match you with an instructor whose schedules work with yours. All your student needs to get going is internet access. They get to decide where they want to work, whether that's their bedroom or somewhere like Libbie Mill Library. Once they've logged on to the Live Learning Platform, they can connect with their instructor and start using tools like video chat to interact just as they would in an in-person session, the virtual whiteboard for visual demonstrations, and document sharing for resource pooling. All of these sessions are recorded, so you and your student can revisit the lessons whenever you'd like to continue studying at your convenience.
