Why You Need a Dyslexia Tutor

Is your child struggling in school because of their dyslexia? Is it upsetting to see them trying their hardest, but just not meeting their grade level expectations? Worry no more. A dyslexia tutor can help to overcome some of your child’s biggest weaknesses. Proficient reading is an essential tool for learning most of the subject matter taught in school at any level. With an increasing emphasis on education and literacy, more and more children, as well as adults, are needing help in learning to read, spell, express their thoughts on paper and acquire adequate use of grammar. Dyslexia tutoring can help break reading and analysis down for your child and help them with techniques to stay focused.

To find a dyslexia tutor means you need to find someone you can trust. Having a child who is dealing with dyslexia can be a troublesome time for the entire family, so bringing someone in from the outside might feel like the last hope. But when you work with HeyTutor, our tutors will be the light you are looking for in your family’s life. Dyslexia really has no official list of the types that exist but a private dyslexia tutor will be able to identify things that otherwise would go unnoticed to someone without years of work with dyslexic students. Due to the fact that our special needs tutors are trained professionals, they have years of experience dealing with individuals who have dyslexia and other learning disorders. So they know what you are dealing with as they have been there before and have helped other students prospered.

Looking for a “dyslexia tutor near me” is something that you need to do in order to get your child to the level of learning that makes them comfortable with reading in class. When you work with a one-on-one dyslexia tutor you will be bringing in someone who can make a daily checklist for the pupil to refer to each evening. This will help your student start to learn the complex skills needed for them to find success in the classroom setting. Our study skills tutors will give your student tools that they not only want but that they need. Everyone learns differently, especially individuals who have dyslexia so laying down a foundation early on is crucial for present and future success in the classroom and for life in general.

This starts with organizational skills to ensure that your student keeps track of their work and keeps track of exactly what they are learning. Dealing with a learning deficiency can cause stress in situations when it is time to start doing homework or take tests. Our professional tutors are well aware of this and work with your students to eliminate these concerns. By having your student learn unique organization skills developed from a professional dyslexia tutor, breaking down tasks into small easily remembered pieces of information will become much simpler. However, having the extensive backgrounds that our tutors have they know that each and every student is entirely different. So they will not use the exact same methods, they will build the method around your student's needs.

For example, if visual memory is something that your student finds difficult, copying must be kept to a minimum. So our tutors will utilize notes or handouts because they will be far more useful. Having a technique that is tailored toward your student is incredibly advantageous, and will be something they can use for the rest of their life. Ideally, it will become second nature to them and they will not even have to think about what it is they are doing. They will be able to apply the tools they learned with one of our dyslexia tutors down the road in their education and once they hit the job force. Our tutors do not want to make dyslexia feel like a hindrance for your student, they want to turn it into something that your student will no longer be overwhelmed with dealing with while learning. Our tutors are one of a kind, not only because of their years of tutoring but also their years of working with dyslexic students. This puts them in a fantastic opportunity to work with your student in a manner that is beneficial for them overall. If your student does the lessons assigned and follows the directions of the tutor, they will find themselves doing things they did not think they were capable of accomplishing.

Benefits of Hiring a Dyslexia Tutor

When finding “dyslexia tutoring near me” developing a structured reading scheme that involves repetition and introduces new words slowly is extremely important. This allows the child to develop confidence and self-esteem when reading. HeyTutor’s instructors believe that in order to be able to teach, according to each child’s educational needs, it is essential to see him or her as their own person, complete with individual strengths and weaknesses. Our Dyslexia tutors take pride in finding solutions to your child’s problems.

Learning in a traditional classroom setting can be difficult for just about anyone, especially if your student is dealing with dyslexia. The current system is not built to work with individuals but instead focuses on the class as a whole, which can leave your child feeling left behind and buried with information. At HeyTutor we look to reverse those effects by teaming you up with a top-notch tutor who will focus solely on your child’s needs as a student. This unique experience will allow for our dyslexia tutor to truly get to know and understand who your child is so that they can make the lessons appealing and enjoyable.

Outside of learning the material, one of the main things our tutors want to make sure of is that your student is having a good time. Learning can sometimes feel boring, especially if you are not retaining much of the information. So to truly ensure that your student remembers the lessons that are being prepared for them, they must enjoy the learning style. Having a one-on-one professional tutor allows for this to happen, in a way that is unparalleled to most other approaches. Group tutoring sessions are not ideal for a student who is struggling with dyslexia. So you might realize “I need a dyslexia tutor.” When that happens one of our tutors will come in and build around up your student's weaknesses and make their strengths even stronger.

After working with HeyTutor our tutors do not want you to have to ever think about dyslexia tutoring again, we want your student to just be able to focus on reaching their goals. Learning should be something that is pleasurable for all people regardless of who they are and that is something we truly believe at HeyTutor. Reading is crucial to any students success so having a well trained professional who can show your student their problems, vocalize it and then help them fix it is an incredible experience.

As you know, there are several types of dyslexia but that does not mean a student only has one kind or that there is a clear set of rules. Like a fingerprint, everyone is unique and has their own challenges which is why you do not want a tutor who uses a cookie cutter approach. What might benefit one child may only confuse another even more, and our tutors understand this fact. They will be able to use this acquired experience and truly understand what types your student is dealing with while trying to read. The first session will essentially work as an evaluation where your dyslexia tutor will see what your dyslexia student is having problems with understanding. They will then take whatever it is your student is currently learning in school and then create a lesson plan surrounding all of this information that is particular to your student. This way, when class begins your student can have the confidence that previously they did not. They can use the tips and methods given to them by a tutor with years of experience to excel in their classwork.

Our tutors know that sometimes it can be like pulling teeth when it is time for a child to have to learn. But our tutors will make it so your student is excited about their sessions and that they can continue to move forward in their quest to break past their dyslexia while truly building the foundation they will use to read at a high level for the rest of their life. This assessment,  and lesson plan you will get from a well-trained dyslexia tutor will be unmatched and at a more than reasonable rate. So scroll through our site of hundreds of dyslexia tutors, or call one of our reps so they can get you started today towards building your students confidence when it comes to reading. Find the best tutor for your child today.

We are so grateful to have been put in contact with Susan. I had been battling for weeks to find a suitable tutor in my area for my daughter who was recently diagnosed. All tutors were currently fully booked or if I could locate one it would have meant hours of traveling time. Susan is truly a pleasure to work with and my daughter looks forward to her sessions. We have already seen a marked improvement in her reading, writing, spelling and overall confidence. Susan makes learning fun and has a very interactive approach which is fantastic for those with dyslexia.

Linda has been a great tutor for my son. We have completed 3 sessions with her so far and they have been very valuable. She quickly assessed my son's needs and tailored her approach and lesson to what he needed. My son is really enjoying the sessions.
