What year in?

I want to thank VT for connecting me with my English tutor. I'm a 49 yr old that enrolled back in college to complete my degree and I was having the most difficult time meeting the demands of my writing assignments. But fortunately, I was matched with an educator that has made what seemed hopeless in my efforts to write academic papers effectively a piece of cake.

Do they have an IEP or 504 plan? (We have tutors that specialize in learning differences)

The tutor that was paired with my daughter was perfect and fits Bella's needs. Bella struggles with attention and has been on a 504 plan for years. The tools used, the interaction and flexibility are priceless. I was hesitant at first but now I'd do it again and I recommend Varsity Tutors!!

Chicago English Tutoring FAQ

If your child needs extra help with their English abilities, Varsity Tutors can connect you with expert Chicago English tutors. Not all students learn the same way and at the same rate. The skills of a student can vary depending on many factors such as their natural learning style and the type of training or guidance they get from teachers and parents.

English covers a wide range of topics including pronouns, verb tenses, synonyms and antonyms, prefixes and suffixes, and reading and writing exercises. Some students can experience difficulties with reading comprehension, spelling, and verb conjugation. If you see your student struggling with their English schoolwork, Chicago English tutoring could be an excellent way to provide them with professional support. Their lessons can be targeted to their learning needs and they can spend more time honing the skills they need to improve their current level.

How is Chicago English tutoring different from classroom learning?

In a standard classroom session, a teacher needs to attend to the learning needs of a lot of students. They also need to make sure that the lesson is maintained at a good pace and that topics that need to be covered in the syllabus are discussed based on the schedule. You can imagine there are so many things to consider during a class, so a teacher might not be able to give their full attention to your student when they're struggling with a topic.

When your child studies with Chicago English tutors, they get 100% of the attention of their instructor. Since there are no other students to accommodate, private instructors can focus on your student's learning needs and provide quality training on each meeting. If your student has a question about pronouns or how to form the past tense of irregular verbs, they can ask their instructor and receive immediate and relevant answers. There's no need to wait for their turn and the instructor doesn't have to rush their answers.

This personalized attention also makes it possible for the instructor to identify your student's strengths and weaknesses and provide instant feedback during exercises. If your student makes a spelling mistake, their instructor can correct them instantly, which is important in making sure that your student is able to notice their errors and correct themselves while the idea is still clear in their heads.

If your student is finding it hard to focus in the classroom, you'll appreciate the one-on-one setting of Chicago English tutoring. Through private lessons, your student can avoid common classroom-related distractions like chatty classmates and noises in the hallway that could break their concentration. The fewer distractions, the easier it is for your student to focus and the faster they can learn new concepts in English.

What are the benefits of having my student study with Chicago English tutors near me?

Working with experienced Chicago English tutors offers advantages that are hard to match with self-study. Your student has access to knowledgeable and patient instructors who can spend as much time as necessary to assist them with English. We evaluate each instructor so you can be confident that your student will only work with qualified mentors.

Private lessons are also highly personalized since the instructor can assess your student during the first few meetings and use the information they learn about them in creating a customized study plan that better addresses their core difficulties. For instance, if your child is already able to correctly identify synonyms and antonyms but needs extra help with determining the meaning of words from prefixes or suffixes, their instructor can incorporate more exercises for this topic on your student's lesson plan. A customized study plan is flexible and can grow with the learning needs of your student.

Aside from managing what your student needs to learn, Chicago English tutoring instructors can also use several teaching techniques that correspond to your child's natural learning style. If your child is a visual learner, for example, their mentor can use flashcards with colored images when teaching new vocabulary. If your student is an auditory learner and remembers better through listening, their instructor can ask them to record themselves while reciting words from a vocabulary list they're studying. Because of their experience and training, private instructors can use a combination of techniques and adjust their teaching methods depending on how your student responds to the lessons.

Since the lessons with Chicago English tutors are based on what your student needs to learn, they can study at their own pace without the pressure of quickly learning each concept to be able to move on to the next. Your student can study in a more relaxed and supportive online environment where they don't need to constantly compare their output with other students.

The benefits of private instruction don't stop with your child getting support for different English topics. You can also gain insights on how you can help your student's learning even after their private lessons are over. Instructors can share tips on how you can support your child with their English learning such as spending a few minutes every day reading grade-appropriate material out loud with your child and asking them a few questions as you go along to check their reading comprehension.

How can I fit Chicago English tutoring into my student's schedule?

If a busy schedule has been preventing you and your student from considering English coaching, our online lessons could just the solution you've been waiting for.

They can attend lessons from home or from other distraction-free locations like the Newberry Library or the Sulzer Regional Library - Branch of Chicago Public Library.

Our platform has a virtual whiteboard so Chicago English tutors can easily write additional reminders, study tips, or grammar rules for your student when they need to.
