Our Special Needs tutors work with many special needs and autism spectrum students. Individualized instruction helps to compensate for learning differences and allows us to match a Special Needs tutor that is a good match in terms of academic subjects, learning differences, and personality. We work to make the best match possible for these students and have tutors with a variety of backgrounds and teaching styles. Available information from psych ed assessments, teachers and doctors is drawn upon to put together individualized programs to help these students reach goals.
Please note that while one to one tutoring compensates for many learning challenges, our tutoring is not ‘therapeutic.’ Meaning: our Special Needs tutors provide academic support but do not endeavor to do brain reprogramming or “fix” a learning disability. We work with students to support them in the learning process, provide study and organizational skills, help them learn strategies for coping and compensating, and take advantage of the strengths they have.

Another huge benefit was that I recently moved and the Tutor Doctor found new tutors in our area, so I never had to worry about finding new ones myself, which could prove to be a big pain. This service has been invaluable for me and my kids”

“Our experience with Tutor Doctor has been nothing, but positive. We decided on getting a special needs tutor for our 8 year old son shortly after his ADHD diagnosis as we just found that someone neutral with a lot of patience would be better than the usual homework struggle we were going through daily. Our tutor was — and continues to be — outstanding for our son as we have seen tremendous progress in his work, report cards and his attitude towards learning. Tutor Doctor is professional, flexible, accommodating and we are so happy we are renewing with them. We fully endorse and recommend them to anyone in need.”
