Sophia W. says, "My daughter was in 3rd grade reading at a 1st grade level. I reached out to Eric and immediately felt at ease. All of my concerns were met with thoughtfulness and warmth on our initial phone call and after our first session, I knew it was a perfect match. Over the course of the school year, my daughter went from throwing tantrums every day before school, to keeping up with her classmates and thriving as a student. If you want someone who is going to pinpoint exactly what your child's needs and change their life, Eric at Butterfly Lit is your person." Read more

Hey there, I’ve been tutoring since I was a senior in high school. I love tutoring because I believe that no child should be left behind because they don’t understand. I feel that each student or individual learns differently than others. My methods are going backwards to make sure they understand what is being taught. I believe that it helps the student to be more confident, motivated, and comfortable to speak up when they need help. Also, I practice challenging the students because sometimes it’s not that they don’t understand, but they’re bored, distracted, and don’t feel challenged.

Your special needs tutoring questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Tutors.

What is special education tutoring?

Special education tutors help students with mild to severe cognitive, emotional, or physical disabilities. Special needs tutors modify the general education curriculum to meet the child's individual needs and involve themselves in each student's social and behavioral development.

What is disability in special education?

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) identifies 13 disability categories where special education should be provided.

  • Auditory Impairment (AI) – refers to a hearing loss not categorized by deafness.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) – mainly affects a child's social and communication skills and behavior.
  • Deafness – covers kids who can't hear most or all sounds, even with a hearing aid.
  • Deaf-Blindness (DB) – covers kids with both severe hearing and vision loss that requires unique programs.
  • Emotional Disturbance (ED) – various mental health issues such as anxiety disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression.
  • Intellectual Disability (ID) – covers disabilities such as below-average intellectual abilities, poor communication or social skills, and poor self care. One example is down syndrome.
  • Multiple Impairments (MI) – a child with multiple disabilities in this list.
  • Orthopedic Impairment (OI) – covers impairments in kids who lack function or ability in their bodies, such as cerebral palsy.
  • Other Health Impairment (OHI) – conditions that limit a child's strength, energy, or alertness such as ADHD.
  • Specific learning disability (SLD) – conditions such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, auditory processing disorder, or nonverbal learning disability.
  • Speech or Language Impairment (SI) – covers difficulties such as stuttering, pronouncing words, making sounds with the voice, or understanding words.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) – injury to the brain caused by a physical force.
  • Visual Impairment / Blindness (VI) – covers both partial sight and blindness.

Reviews for Oakland special education tutors

Recent success stories from people in the Oakland area.
Arnab B.
Sarrita helped me prepare for my SAT in December. I took the test in October and didn’t do great. I rly needed a good score for my college Apps. Thanks To Sarrita I got a 1550, up from 1240. Sarrita’s a rly good teacher and working with her is easy. She’s very patient and helped me a lot with my anxiety. My biggest prblem is with math cos I was sick during a lot of algebra 1 and 2 and I hate geometry. But she taught me how to spot certain questions and get to answers quickly. I’m glad I won’t need to take the SAT again. Sarrita’s also tutoring me for AP Chemistry and AP World History. One thing I like the most about Sarrita is that she believes in me. She’s very smart but she won’t intimidate you with how smart she is. She knows so much that I only ever need one tutor to help me with all my subjects.
