zipingo asks: I am a special child – I can’t walk and am in a wheelchair. I need a tutor to teach me in Urdu. Can you help me?
Hi zipingo –
I don’t know enough about your specific situation (where you live, etc.) to give you exact information, but I think the Internet is your best bet.
Let’s say you lived in, oh, Paris. Well I imagine you could go onto a search engine like Google or Yahoo or whatever, and type in “Tutor Urdu Paris” and that a number of names would come up. Then you could check with all of them, and see who you can trust and like the most.
But also, I would imagine, if you live in a city, there will be places that provide tutors for special-needs kids, and you could just contact them and tell them what you need, and they’d be able to either provide you with someone, or give you referrals to other places that might.
The most important thing for you to know is that, with your situation, everyone out there will want to help you. Everyone will wish you the best, and everyone will feel good for any help they can give.
At the same time, I know living in a wheelchair is really tough. I guess the closest I’ve ever been to that experience is when I’ve had to wear a huge cone on my head, to keep me from chewing on itches. It got in the way of absolutely everything I wanted to do. And worst of all, it made me feel depressed and hopeless, like I’d never be able to do anything fun at all. So I’m really impressed with you that you’re keeping your mood up, and seeking that tutor.
So see what you can find on the internet. And once you have that, please let me know how you’re doing. I’ll be thrilled to hear from you, and to help out in any ways I can (maybe with something I know more about than tutors!).
Best of Luck!
