Adrianna M. says, "Chidubem has been helping both my daughters with Math for about a year now (Algebra and Calculus) and they have been doing so well! Before we met her we had been working with another tutor that unfortunately was not that good with explaining concepts. However, with Chidubem, my daughters have been able to easily pick up on subjects they struggle with. I am very sure I did the best thing for them by working with her. She's great and 100% totally worth it!" Read more

Throughout my academic journey, English has always been my favorite subject, captivating me with its rich tapestry of literature, language, and creativity. While my professional experience in the field may be limited, my passion for English and dedication to learning are unwavering. Armed with a degree in Liberal Studies with a focus on English from my associate's degree, I have delved into the intricacies of literary analysis, writing, and communication, furthering my understanding and appreciation for the subject. As a creative and imaginative soul, I am drawn to the endless possibilities for expression and exploration that English offers

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.

I have been working with Chidubem for 5 months now and she's incredible. She teaches me programming with Java and I absolutely live how she teaches. She gives me challenging assignments and homework, and guides me through the parts that I can't understand. I have learned more from working with her than from my programming class in College. She's the best!

Since starting reading tutoring with Anne-Marie Coakley, our son has flourished! Anne-Marie took time to get to know our son early on and made an immediate connection with him, setting him at ease. He frequently mentions how awesome she is and how much fun tutoring is! Not only has his reading skills improved exponentially, but his self confidence is rising and he no longer puts himself down. He actively reads road signs and his surrounds, wants to play games that require reading, and even helps his sibling with their homework! We can tell he feels more on pace with his classmates and has excelled in other subjects too! We are so happy with our decision to hire Anne-Marie!
