Specialized Learners

Supporting special populations through live virtual tutoring instruction requires a tailored approach that addresses students’ unique needs. We provide accommodation, and engagement strategies.

Here’s how we effectively support special populations in a virtual tutoring setting:
  • Individualized Instruction: We recognize that each learner may have different strengths, weaknesses, and learning styles. Our tutors tailor instruction to accommodate individual needs, whether it’s providing additional explanations, modifying lessons, and offering alternative learning resources.
  • Accommodations: We ensure that the virtual platform used for tutoring supports accommodations for learners. Additionally, we regularly provide a variety of Individualized Education Plan (IEP) accommodations.
  • Clear Communication: Our curriculum emphasizes clear and concise language during tutoring sessions, with visual aids or demonstrations on the virtual whiteboard to support understanding. Through the Gradual Release of Responsibility, we break down complex concepts into smaller, more manageable chunks, and encourage students to ask questions for clarification.
  • Engagement Strategies: Throughout each lesson our goal is to keep learners engaged by incorporating interactive activities, such as quizzes, and discussions, into the tutoring sessions. We encourage active participation by prompting students to unmute and share their thoughts, opinions, and experiences related to the topic being discussed.
  • Cultural Sensitivity: Culturally Responsive Pedagogy provides a baseline for respecting cultural differences while being mindful of language barriers that may impact communication. We provide opportunities for students to express themselves and incorporate diverse perspectives into instruction.
  • Collaboration with Support Services: We work closely with support services, such as special education teachers, counselors, and therapists, as needed to ensure that the needs of special populations are adequately addressed. As districts are open, we can collaborate on individualized education plans (IEPs) goals or 504 plans to outline specific accommodations and support strategies.
  • Feedback and Reflection: Through a proprietary survey tool, we solicit feedback from students and tutors regularly to assess the effectiveness of our tutoring approach and make necessary adjustments. Through tutor feedback, and ongoing data review, our team reflects on our practices and provides professional development opportunities to enhance our instructor’s ability to support special populations effectively.

By implementing these strategies, we create a supportive and inclusive learning environment that empowers special populations to thrive in virtual tutoring settings.
