Educator Extraordinaire

The at-home-classroom is where not only formal education begins, but the love of learning is formed. Every child has the right to be taught in a way in which they are afforded the opportunity to observe and interact with core subjects. Students should be engaged during the lesson that they will be inspired further investigations and explorations into the content.

As an educator to young scholars I find it important to emphasize passion, determination, empathy and kindness in ... See more

Why You Need a Special Needs Tutor

Special needs tutoring is one of the most valuable services that a parent can set up for their child living with a learning disability. Children with learning disabilities are often overwhelmed by the difficulties they face in a group-learning environment. Furthermore, these children are faced with the challenge of completing a range of standardized tests and other academic performances. Most of the time these tests are structured in a completely different way from what they’re used to when confronting and processing information.

Whether dealing with autism spectrum disorders, dysgraphia, dyslexia, language processing trouble, ADHD or any other learning-related challenge a special needs tutor can help pave the way to academic success. Most special needs students get an Individual Education Plan (IEP) at the recommendation of their teacher. A tutor will ensure that their lessons are appropriately aligned with the IEP. You are your child’s best advocate and the person who knows what they are capable of doing. A great tutor will be someone who is on the same page as you and your child’s dreams and desires. If this is what you are looking for you know “I need a special needs tutor.”

When working with a child with special needs you will have an entirely different set of issues to focus on as a parent. Our tutors know that this is the case for you and want to alleviate as much stress as possible. They are both professionals within the special needs field as well as working tutors. This creates a fantastic opportunity for your child to truly learn from the best of the best. Our special needs tutors are fantastic and can help your child focus on their challenges and feel confident in seeking help when they need it.

More often than not what happens is that your student is having problems with several different aspects of school and may not want to feel left out. Because of this, they might not ask questions when they need to which leaves them left behind in class. Our private special needs tutors want to break this method of thought and let your child know that everything that they feel is merited and that it is to ask questions. They will teach them methods that they are comfortable with so that they can be a stellar student.

Test taking is also another cause for anxiety for a student dealing with special needs. Taking a test is already a stressful situation as is, let alone for a child who is already having problems. Most teachers are not trained as to how to deal with a student who has special needs, so they will just teach them the same way they teach the other students. Our certified tutors know that this method is not going to work for your child, so they will give them other tools to find success. This is exactly the type of tutelage and guidance that your child needs to be able to move on with their educational career. They will be taking tests for a while so they need to be able to have tools they pull from at all times later on in their future.


When you find a special needs tutor it is important that you work with someone who you can trust. You need to be able to trust them around your child but also that they are capable of being able to get the most out of your child. You do not want someone who pushes your child too hard or who does not push them enough. That sweet spot is one that is hard to find, but with HeyTutor we have made that search easy on you.

Our tutors are all college graduates and have proven track records working with children who have special needs. In other words, we have the exact tutors your child needs. We have tutors who will teach your child new learning strategies to aid their understanding of certain subject matter that will prepare them for lasting lifelong success. We have the “special needs tutor near me” and “special needs tutoring near me” that you and your child absolutely need. Not only will your child be learning from our tutors, but also you as a parent will learn tips and tricks to help your child push through those rough patches.

Benefits of Hiring a Special Needs Tutor

The benefits are limitless when you hire a special needs tutor. They will help to identify the best test-taking and classroom strategies to point your child in the direction of success. Many students with autism spectrum disorders, language processing trouble, ADHD and dyslexia, tend to take tests much differently than students who do not have these disorders. Sadly, in many instances, there is little opportunity to approach the testing process in a way that is optimally suited to the needs of each individual. HeyTutor offers one-on-one special education tutoring services with the structure needed to achieve optimal test taking, homework, academic, and non-academic skills. Furthermore, our tutors can help students prepare for unexpected questions, such as those that are open-ended, or that may have more than one right answer.

The typical classroom vibe is not ideal for everyone, but particularly not for students with special needs. As mentioned, sometimes teachers are not properly taught how to deal with students with certain needs which creates a disconnect between the student and teacher. When that happens problems happen both in the classroom and at school when they could have all be avoided with the right approach. Our professional tutors know that this approach does not come in cookiecutter form, quite the opposite actually. Each and every student learns in their own way but still, some find success in the classroom setting. But if this is not your child, they need a tutor who is going to take several factors into consideration.  

With this being said, some of the most important things that need to be considered when working with a child with special needs are comfortability, learning style, and learning materials. These three things are the recipe for the success of your student. Our tutors will take all of these things into account before even considering to teach them. This is the only way that your child is not only going to be able to learn now but to also retain the information in the future. When you work with a tutor from HeyTutor you are not getting someone who just wants to do the bare minimum with your child. They pride themselves on your child being able to take that knowledge and apply it later on in life. This will make a real difference later on in their career as a student and a working professional. They will receive information that they can ideally use for the rest of their life. Working with a HeyTutor tutor will be an experience unlike any other.

Also, just as important as the students learning style is the tutor. If you are someone who one day wants to help children with special needs you know the benefits of working with one of our tutors. We not only provide excellent tutors but also working professionals who have excelled in the field. This is something that that someone who one day wants to work with children with special needs, absolutely has to do. It is so important for you to learn from a professional who has the experience that you one day hope to acquire. This will be something that helps bring out the best in you as a future educator. As mentioned, there are not too many teachers who can both teach and are trained in working with special needs children. If you see this void and want to fill it, this type of special needs tutoring is pertinent toward your success. It will truly help you learn from a different perspective than you would get in a classroom setting. We have so many tutors that we might also be able to work with someone who is also working as a tutor and doing exactly what it is you hope to accomplish someday. This is unlike anything you will get anywhere else and what separates our special needs tutors.

Children and future educators are not the only ones benefitting from our tutors. If you are a parent with a special needs child, you know how frustrating it can be to not be able to help your child. Also if your child is struggling in school and the teacher cannot help them either, it can only add to the stress. When your child works with one of our tutors you will also be learning these that can always be applicable. It does not matter what your needs are, we have the tutors who can help you achieve them. Get yourself or your child the tools needed to have a fruitful future.
