How to evaluate IB tutors for special needs student?

Discussion in 'Jobseekers' started by frenchbubbles, Feb 23, 2012.

  1. My son is due to start the IB in September studying HL maths, physics and computer science. He is dyslexic with problems organising his thoughts for written work. He seems able to think outside the box but sometimes struggles to see the obvious.
    We have been told how hard the maths and physics programmes are so we would probably think about a tutor anyway. We would like to try and find someone who understands special needs. Most difficult, we are not in the UK so would plan to do everything via virtual tutorials.
    Do you have any suggestions on how we could identify/advertise for a tutor and what criteria should we use to evaluate a tutor given this unusual mix of needs? Are there any measures of success for teachers we could use to help us?

  2. You might want to try posting this question in the private tutors forum as they're likely to be more able to help.
