UCF Master's Degree with 15+ years of tutoring experience

Education has always been a big part of my life. In grade school, my teachers would often ask me to work with other students in class who needed assistance with the current lesson. This gift of being able to help others resonated with me and I realized very quickly that everyone does not learn in the same way. In high school, I volunteered with students with special needs and discovered there are many ways to communicate and teach. At San ... See more

Why You Need a ADD/ADHD Tutor

Does your child lack the attention span of most students or show behavioral problems in class? Are they not sitting still in class and not focusing as they should be? Then your student has probably been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD and this can be quite a challenge. However, this is not something that both you and they cannot overcome without the right help. An ADD/ADHD tutor can help your child learn the tools necessary to become the thriving student that is within them. As a parent, you are not trained in how to deal with students who have ADD/ADHD so it can be frustrating for you. But when you realize “I need an ADD/ADHD tutor” you know you are bringing in a professional who is trained in this area. This can be the difference maker in your child finding lasting success in school.

Having a child who has ADD/ADHD can be something that causes problems within the family. You know that your child is capable of doing their work and paying attention in class, but they just are not meeting these expectations. This can also stress your child out as they struggle making the grades they should and constantly face discipline from their teachers. It can be a time that causes much turmoil not only in the classroom but also in the household. You have already started exploring “ADD/ADHD tutoring near me” being the proactive parent that you are who wants the best for their child.

There are several pharmaceutical options that come to mine but ADD/ADHD tutoring should be given strong consideration. Your child might not need to be sedated they might just need to work with a private ADD/ADHD tutor who can spot anything out of the ordinary in terms of their learning style. In fact, what often happens is a doctor assumes a child has ADD/ADHD because they have certain symptoms but what they miss is your child may also have a learning disability. So students are given medication and are able to sit down in class but they still will struggle with the subject matter. An ADD/ADHD tutor brings a different perspective than your doctor as our tutors specialize in this disorder.

For example, if your student is not diagnosed with ADD/ADHD until later on in their elementary education they will have holes in their basic learning skills. No amount of medication is going to be able to fill in those gaps. But an attentive private ADD/ADHD tutor who is there to work exclusively for your child will absolutely be able to help. If your child just continues to take the medication and there are no results outside of the fact that they are docile it will make going to school a burden for your child. Our special needs tutors will make sure that your child starts to see results which will let them enjoy going to school and learning in general. They have the ability within them it just has to be brought out and that is what our tutors can do. That is their main objective as tutors.

Putting your child in the best position to succeed in the classroom is definitely one of the main concerns as a parent. You want them to be able to go on with their life and get a degree so that they can get the job they have always wanted. But dealing with ADD/ADHD goes beyond the classroom. There are also several internal hurdles they have to jump over in order to bring out the best in themselves. These include things like anxiety, anger, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. If these are things your child deals with bringing in a study skills tutor who is a specialist in ADD/ADHD is something you need to do without a doubt. They have the knowledge and years of experience to help your child overcome these obstacles. This will help them dream big and achieve those goals while also giving you and your family the tools needed to assist your child.


A child with ADD/ADHD needs help from their home base as well. This comes from you and their siblings as these are the people they are closest too. Understanding ADD/ADHD is not something that we all just know how to do, it is very delicate and takes patience. But it also takes practice and understanding which is what will be given to you when you find an ADD/ADHD tutor. It is a family effort and the tools that you gain will be given to you by a trained professional who you found from HeyTutor.

From this, they will be able to asses the way that your child learns and in what situations they do not respond well in.
