School is Easy provides in-home and online tutoring that is tailored to the needs of students with learning difficulties or neurodiverse conditions. These include Autism, Dyslexia, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and more.
See the difference a qualified special education tutor can do for you
Instructors working in a one-on-one tutoring session are especially skilled at helping a student engage with a subject. When it comes to special education tutoring, another layer of complexity is added to the mix; the tutor must know how to teach in a way that suits the individual needs of the student, based on a comprehensive understanding of their specific condition. They need to know how the child learns.
It may sound obvious to some, but you just can’t teach an autistic student the same way you’d teach a dyslexic student, or one with ADHD, Aphasia, or sensory processing issues (to name only a few).
Students with learning difficulties often have very high IQs. They just process information in a different way. These students need the right kind of instruction to help them reach their potential.
Use a special education tutor who understands the needs of your student’s learning difficulty
Our special education tutors come in many forms. Each will have their own personality, experience and style of teaching. We try to match you to the best one for your child. However, you can be sure that they all have in common the understanding that the job of special needs tutoring requires particular demands. These can include:
Identifying the student’s learning style as it relates to their condition, and using that as a spring board for interest-based learning.
Helping to formulate, or follow an Individual Education Plan. This needs to happen for an applicable Identification, Placement, and Review Committee when your child is identified as having a learning difficulty. Tutoring thereafter involves knowing school curriculum requirements, and how to make, or suggest modifications to the IEP on an ongoing basis.
Adapting to, and learning to incorporate assistive technologies to help a student with learning difficulties. This way, they can continue their studies when the tutor is not present.
Recognizing when the student needs a break. Being a special needs student is overwhelming, and the tutor needs to know what the child’s coping mechanisms are, so they can be employed during tutoring.
Being able to separate behavioural issues from learning issues. While these may be related, a trained special ed tutor usually knows when the setback is because of a true learning difficulty, or a lack of interest, current emotion, irritability or otherwise.
