How can I find a great tutor for my dyslexic son who is in elementary school?

I'm really distressed! My 9 year-old was making great gains with a Barton Tutor, but she just informed me that she will not be able to continue when school starts back up. It has taken 3 years and 3 tutors to get to a program that works! I'm not sure what to do next!

I would also suggest asking your current tutor for a recommendation and connecting with your school district as another resource. Another thought would be your family's pediatrician. Most people are far more networked than they realize. When feeling stressed or overwhelmed we tend to forget these sources of connection and support.

Regardless of the direction you may go, take a deep breath and believe it will work out. That calm can go a long way in helping you make a good decision and support your child.

Good luck!

As a parent of a dyslexic teen (I'm dyslexic too and still use editing tutors) I am always on the lookout for tutors who can help either one of us. Here are additional resources I have used to find tutors. Contact your local college, most have an education department, retired teachers or graduate students working on their masters in education and specializing in dyslexia. Plus, I keep a list of tutors I meet or hear about that I may need in the future.

A great way to search for tutors in your local area is to use Noodle's tutor search. You will have the option to search for tutors who specialize in learning disabilities such as dyslexia; you will also be able to search for tutors who specialize in certain age groups, like 9 year-olds for instance.

Noodle also has an extensive catalogue of resources on how to find and work with private tutors. Additionally, there are plenty of articles and expert-written answers to questions about the subject of tutoring in general.

Hopefully you can use this information to find a tutor who meets your needs. If you still feel confused or overwhelmed, feel free to ask a follow up question. If you provide a specific street address, someone at Noodle may be able to help you find resources in your area.

Best of luck!
