Private online tutoring for students with special needs in Washington DC

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 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. While driving to a particular study spot can be an issue, working remotely makes it just as easy for your student to study at home as it is at the Watha T Daniel-Shaw Library.

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.

Session summaries by tutors for students with special needs

Special Education Tutoring review by Courtney in Washington DC
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 Washington DC
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 Washington DC
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 Washington DC
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 Washington DC
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.
