Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world.

Hi! I am Vanessa Kahen, a NYC-based Private Tutor and Special Education Teacher. I have four years of classroom teaching experience, and have been tutoring for the past six years. I work with students in Kindergarten through 5th grade and focus on a variety of subjects, including but not limited to:

  • remedial reading
  • remedial math
  • writing (from spelling and grammar to essay writing)
  • reading comprehension
  • upper elementary math topics (fractions, geometry, operations, algebra, etc.)
  • middle school entrance exams
  • reading comprehension

With most of my experience in Special Education, I have a hefty bag of tricks to help struggling students make progress, all while having fun and gaining confidence.
