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!

Washington DC Special Education Tutoring FAQ

Varsity Tutors understands that it isn't fun to watch your student have a hard time academically, so let us match you with a Washington DC special education tutor today so they can get the individualized attention they need.

Students with learning differences have a variety of different needs. For example, a student with dyslexia generally struggles to read, while a student with dyscalculia has a hard time with quantitative concepts like place value and subtraction. As such, there is no universal approach that works for everybody. Washington DC special education tutors can take the time to understand your student's unique needs and design study sessions accordingly. Continue reading to find out more about why private instruction could be right for your student.

What skills can my student review during Washington DC special education tutoring sessions?

Washington DC special education tutors can begin by reviewing your student's IEP or 504 Plan for a general sense of what your student's needs are, allowing them to concentrate on the skills your student is struggling with. For example, flashcards can be a good way for students to remember what sounds each letter of the alphabet can make, while kinesthetic techniques such as air writing could be better in certain circumstances. A private instructor can also forge a solid personal rapport with your student, making it easier for them to admit when they need help with something.

A private instructor can also focus on life skills that prove useful in an academic context. For instance, organization can be very challenging for students with learning differences. Color-coding your student's notebooks can make it easier for them to identify which ones they need, while day planners can really help your student plan out their approach for a longer project. Your student can even practice packing and unpacking their backpack during Washington DC special education tutoring sessions to get more comfortable with their daily routine.

Likewise, a private instructor can provide homework help. While this might entail helping your student work out math problems or reading comprehension questions, setting a homework regimen could prove even more beneficial. If your student knows that they do homework at a set time each day, you might be able to skip the homework battle. Allowing your student to burn off some energy before starting can also make homework a better experience for all involved.

What advantages can a Washington DC special education tutor near me provide for my student?

Many students with learning differences don't like school because they associate it with negative experiences such as getting scolded or falling behind their peers. Studying with a private instructor means working in a learning environment that doesn't have the same connotations, allowing your student to feel more confident in their abilities.

A private instructor can also address any questions your student has promptly, allowing them to receive assistance before the material starts to feel too overwhelming. Likewise, your student's completed assignments can be reviewed quickly so your student can review any mistakes while the material is at the forefront of their mind. Perhaps most importantly, a private instructor can introduce topics at a pace your student is comfortable with to keep sessions engaging, but not overwhelming.

If you opt for online Washington DC special education tutoring, your student will meet their instructor on our mobile-friendly Live Learning Platform for maximal convenience.

Our platform also offers powerful features like a virtual whiteboard, video chat capability, and a shared document editor that can provide a face-to-face study experience even if your student's instructor lives nowhere near the nation's capital. Best of all, every session is automatically recorded so that your student can go back and review anything they need to. You can also take a look to identify how your student's instructor is approaching study sessions, allowing you to keep the learning going at home.
