Advocacy + Other Matters

Classroom Matters isn't just about tutoring. We believe in supporting the whole student. We offer support with advocacy for your student, organizational management with HomeWorks, and assistance with IEP and 504 plans.

Learning Differences, Learning (dis) Abilities, Sensory and Auditory Processing…What Does It Mean?

Feeling Dazed and Confused? You’re Not Alone!

Are you struggling to understand assessments and what they mean for your child's education? Have you been told your student just needs to work harder? Do you have a nagging feeling your kid might have auditory processing deficits? Is he forgetting everything he's supposed to be doing? What is the difference between an IEP and a 504 Plan?

It's confusing, and sometimes demoralizing, but Tatiana Guerreiro Ramos, Co-Director of CM, can help you navigate the world of special education and fight for the supports and services your student needs and is entitled to.

Connect with Tatiana for a free consult about how advocacy can mean the difference between success and failure for you and your child.

Please contact Tatiana or call (510) 540-8646 ext. 3 for more details.

HomeWorks: Our guidance. Your home.
$350 | SUBSEQUENT VISITS are $105 per HOUR

So often we hear from students that they struggle to get started on their work, or stay focused or manage their time effectively – sometimes all three! They confess/admit to being disorganized, unproductive and distracted by “everything.”

Most of these students have not taken a critical look at their study environment. They do not have the scaffolding they need to work productively.

Classroom Matters' HomeWorks to the rescue! We come into your home, into your student’s room, evaluate the environment, and then show your child (and you!) how to create and maintain a productive study environment at home. Drawing from our successful Supervised Study™ program, we teach them proven strategies for managing their time and workload.


  • A learning preferences assessment so that together we can design a space that caters to their learning strengths

  • A pre-questionnaire designed to help suss out/determine what is working/not working

  • An initial home visit (up to 2 hours), during which time we will help set up a productive learning environment, and do some guided practice using our Supervised Study™ worksheet (which you get to keep!)

  • A list of suggested changes/additions to your child’s room, with resources for accessories and/or furniture we recommend

  • Two (2) follow up visits (15-30 minutes each) to check on student progress

  • A post-questionnaire designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the new study environment
