Melissa Berry

Individualized Education

Individualized education is not only for students in Special Ed, it's for everyone! The team here at Teachers As Tutors understands that every student learns best in a different way. Whether that be visual, auditory, reading & writing, or kinesthetic, during our intakes we get to learn about the students and take into account all of their needs in order to create an tutoring plan for each individual student.


Visual- Visual learners are able to retain information when it’s presented to them charts, graphs, pictures and more.

From Lori Spencer....

temp-post-image


I started this company in 2017 after almost 19 years in public education working with students with special needs. As a special education teacher I never felt like I was truly helping children in the way they deserved to be helped. There were just too many obstacles in the way. Some of these obstacles were large class sizes, paperwork limiting the time with my students, and limited staff. It was frustrating and I became unhappy. I had a dream to be able to work with a student one-on-one, focusing on his/her individualized needs; tailoring a plan just right for the student. There is nothing like seeing that aha moment in a child's eye!


Teachers as Tutors has grown and we have many wonderful ne...

IEP Advocacy








IEP Supports:


• Schedule a tutor to attend an IEP meeting. We were special education teachers that had experience writing IEP's and running IEP meetings


• Schedule a timeslot to have one of our certified special education teacher/tutor to help you prepare for an IEP meeting.












Experience during IEP Meetings:


Our tutors were teachers and we know what goes into an IEP. A service we provide is going into the meeting as an IEP member. We can help you walk through the meeting page by page to be sure all services and accommodations are covered. We can also be in your court / on your side and will ask questions that will not intimidate the school staff but will help you get the best plan f...
