Learning Differences



Roughly 20% of the school aged population suffers from a learning difference, including dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and processing deficits. While there are typically resources in place to assist these students at most schools, they often don’t get the specialized instruction they need. Instead, they are tragically labeled as ‘stupid’ and lose the self-confidence to achieve what is possible for them given their frequently higher level of intellect.

Alliance Tutoring, with specialized tutors experienced in working with these students, caters to these students’ unique needs specifically.

One-On-One Format

The one-on-one format offers the opportunity to indulge more differentiated instruction: with learning based in visual, auditory and/or kinesthetic mediums, where classroom instruction is frequently limited to one.

Specialized Instruction

Specialized instruction combined with a focus on ego remediation returns these students to a place of self-confidence, providing them the tools to thrive in traditional academic structures with the supplied alternative approaches.

*Generous scholarships available on sliding scale based on demonstrated need.

I am a mother of a 14 year old boy with special needs. In the middle of his 8th grade he made a very significant regress in school (due to a change of teacher). I immediately started looking for a tutor who could help him with English. I found Alliance Tutoring on-line and spoke with Mr. Merrill, who recommended Ms. Alexia Quinn. She is experienced in working with children with special needs. My son has been engaged from the very first session with Alexia. He is eager to learn and looks forward to each session. She is excellent with him and knows how to keep him engaged and interested in learning, by keeping the sessions fast paced, asking a lot of questions, and being very patient and positive. She teaches him to write essays, as this has been his struggle. Creative writing is not something that comes easy for him; however, I already see progress.  I am very pleased with Alliance Tutoring and with Ms. Alexia.
