Private online tutoring for students with special needs in Tulsa, OK

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 how difficult it can be to watch your student struggle in the classroom as the result of learning differences but can connect you with Tulsa special education tutoring to lighten the load. Learning differences can take a number of different shapes and sizes, and while students may receive support in the classroom when this assistance falls short, private instruction can fill the gap, providing help with coursework and offering insights and strategies that can advance your student's overall progress.

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

Learning differences present a number of challenges in the classroom. Whether your student is having trouble as a result of autism spectrum disorder, dyslexia, dysgraphia, or another learning difference, many of these conditions relate to difficulties processing and responding to information. Tulsa special education tutors are thoroughly vetted to make sure they are properly trained in best practices related to these learning differences. They can properly assess the extent of your student's challenges in order to develop a customized learning plan which introduces techniques and tools specific to your student's needs. These strategies can make it easier for them to navigate tasks in the classroom and at home, improving academic performance and social interactions. Furthermore, because these instructors understand the importance of parental support in these endeavors, they can work with you, too, to make sure you understand the efforts being undertaken and steps you can take to help the process along.

Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and 504 Plans are frequently in place for students with learning differences, establishing various supports and accommodations guaranteed by the school. Tulsa special education tutors can use these documents to inform their approach to working with your student. Consistency in instruction is very important when working with students with learning differences, so they can reference your student's 504 and IEP to make sure they're using the same sort of tools, like visual cues and reward systems, as the school is for maximum efficacy and predictability. They can also communicate with the team at the school to keep the proper points of contact updated on your student's progress during the sessions. This way you can be confident your student is receiving the appropriate level of support at every turn.

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

A significant benefit of Tulsa special education tutoring is that your student receives individualized instruction. In the classroom, the teacher has to provide instruction to a group of twenty or more students, and can't necessarily slow down to spend one-on-one time with a single pupil. Even if your student's IEP calls for assistance from an aide, most of the time those aides split their time among multiple students. During tutoring sessions, your student receives undivided attention that is devoted to their specific goals. Pacing is related to their needs. If reaching full comprehension is taking longer than anticipated, the lesson plan can be shifted to make sure all bases are covered. If one method of explanation isn't working, the instructor can try approaching the topic from different angles until it makes sense. Because the sessions always take place on an individual basis, you and your student can ask questions and get answers in the moment, avoiding confusion.

Tulsa special education tutoring can also help bolster your student's confidence. It's common for students with learning differences to struggle with self-esteem if their grades stumble and they see themselves as separate from their classmates. Working with a Tulsa special education tutor helps in two ways. First, the strategies introduced and skills developed can help improve academic and social performance, making some of these differences seem a little less pronounced. Second, these sessions can serve as a source of affirmation, with instructors offering positive reinforcement for not only performance but effort. They can also help students better understand their differences, framing them as points of distinction instead of deficits. These factors can impact confidence and your student's overall outlook on school.

How can I get my student working with a Tulsa special education tutor near me?

You can get set up with Tulsa special education tutoring by Varsity Tutors in as little as 24 hours. Your student gets to choose where they want to work, whether that's the familiarity of home or the quiet of somewhere like Hardesty Regional Library. They just need internet access and they can access the Live Learning Platform, using video chat to interact with their instructor the same way they would have in person and leveraging tools like the virtual whiteboard and document sharing as the lessons progress. These sessions are always recorded, so studying can continue long after the session is over. Contact Varsity Tutors today to begin the process.

Session summaries by tutors for students with special needs

Special Education Tutoring review by Courtney in Tulsa, OK
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 Tulsa, OK
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 Tulsa, OK
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 Tulsa, OK
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 Tulsa, OK
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.
