What We Offer

Common Sense Special Education offers REAL solutions to your Special Needs problems. Serving the San Francisco Bay Area, we are battle-tested Educators, ready to cut through the jumble and make tangible progress in your child’s life. We provide homework help, social skills, reading and math help, IEP help, behavior management, and sports training (among others). Our mission is to stay FLEXIBLE enough to suit your child’s evolving needs, whatever they may be.

Why In-Home Tutoring

Instead of dragging your child to an intimidating office, we bring the tutoring to you. We are not an agency or a learning center, just real people who know how to get things done. Our goal is to break down the problem in its most simple form, and work out simple solutions you can use long after the tutor has left.




Tired of broad, theoretical explanations for your child’s behavior? So are we! Our philosophy is to look at what’s really going on, and make actual, measurable progress on actual, measurable terms. Hard or easy, it doesn’t matter; we get things done in a long-lasting way.


Our teaching team is made up of hand-picked Special Educators from all corners of the San Francisco Bay Area, chosen specifically because of their experience working in the most challenging of school environments. We value patience and flexibility above all other traits, as well as the ability to form solid working relationships with our students.
