ADHD

At the Chicago Home Tutor we have the skills to effectively teach your student with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We provide expert tutoring services in the convenience of your home- in Chicago and the suburbs.

Our tutors have graduate degrees in education and psychology and years of experience working with students with ADHD in our classrooms and individually. Alongside our scientifically-supported teaching strategies, we use many different methods that research has shown often help students with ADHD including executive functioning interventions, self- monitoring checklists, the MotivAider, Calm Classroom breathing exercises, on and off task monitoring and feedback, and much more. We design our program specifically for your student to improve inattentive and/or hyperactive behaviors, so that he or she can attend to and focus on our lessons.

As always we are eager to coordinate our services with other professionals. Are you considering medication for your child or wondering if the current medication is making a difference? We can work with your doctor to take data during our sessions to provide information on medication effectiveness. We can also collaborate with speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, and teachers to work on generalization of goals across settings and make sure your child is getting the maximum benefit possible from services.

“Chicago Home Tutor was a godsend when we were struggling with how to help our 9-year old son who was diagnosed with phonics and writing delays along with ADHD (inattentive type). We were at a complete loss with where to start and how to move forward.  We sent a few emails to tutors that specialize in tutoring for learning delays and ADHD and heard back immediately from Laura who knew exactly what we were going through and how to help us approach the situation.  She provided a list of potential approaches that we could try and let us know how common this is / that there is a way forward.  After our initial correspondence and discussions with Laura, we were paired with our perfect match – Amy – who is a special education teacher.  Amy has such a lovely way about her and really connects with the children through many different learning techniques that particularly encourage focus and phonics learning for our son.  We also have our 6 year old daughter tutor with her so that our son does not feel singled out.  Both of the kids absolutely love her, and we are really seeing progress in both children’s learning. The Chicago Home Tutor’s approach to learning is very specialized to the child and very flexible.  As our son dreads reading and phonics but loves math, they always end with a challenging math problem so he has something to look forward to.  They also have understandable ways to measure progress that they can share with both the parents and the children.  Our son is highly motivated and sits up straighter when he sees that he read 10 words per minute less than he did the last time. We couldn’t recommend Chicago Home Tutor enough.  They have really helped and continue to help our family through a difficult time.  We feel very fortunate to have been connected with such a great resource for our children.” – Sally P, June 2016

What Parents Say:

The Chicago Home Tutor has had a transformative effect on our son's reading and writing ability over a really short period of time. Our tutor is fun, approachable and our son loves her classes. He learns by playing and he is proud to show us his progress. She details improvements and compares our child to the average at his age. It's invaluable to know where he stands and how he's doing great. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend The Chicago Home Tutor to every parent seeking for a top class tutor.

The Chicago Tutor was a wonderful gift during a challenging time for my daughter. The whole process worked marvelously smoothly. Ryan was terrific - he kept my daughter motivated and feeling secure. He was also responsive to changes when they became necessary. And he could teach the material well. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Our tutor is an excellent and engaging tutor. She works with my 7 year old daughter on math concepts and is very effective. My daughter actually looks forward to working with her. She is very conscientious and professional; she is always prepared with materials and has multiple ways of approaching the subject. I would highly recommend the Chicago Home Tutor to anyone in need of a tutor.

I am so happy with the Chicago Home Tutor. You can tell our tutor, Laura, has prepared every class meticulously and knows perfectly what each student needs. My son has improved a lot with her help, and he smiles every time I tell him that he will be seeing Ms. R.
