My passion for teaching stems from the values my family instilled in me growing up. I come from a family of teachers and was taught the importance of education. I graduated with my B.A. in Psychology and started my teaching career ten years ago. I have been tutoring in learning centers for the past 8 years. I tutor in phonics, elementary math, elementary reading, writing, and study skills.

My experience has given me the knowledge to work with students with vast backgrounds. Working at a charter school for students with learning disabilities, I have experience working with those that have ADD, ADHD, and Autism. I have worked with students that were in danger of failing reading and math. I have also worked with gifted students that are not doing well in school due to a lack of study skills. Homework should not be a frustrating time or a hassle! I help students identify and use strategies that works best for them. I strive to make every child I work with feel successful and excited about learning.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with students K-6th grade in the past ten years at Summit Charter, Huntington Learning and Sylvan Learning. I have been trained to teach students that are either struggling in school or looking to get ahead. First, I identify strengths and weaknesses in the subject(s) they seek help in. Based on the needs of the child, I adjust my lessons to best support them. I work with elementary students in the following subjects: phonics, reading, math, writing, and study skills.

Phonics

I have taught phonics for the past 10 years at Summit Charter, Huntington Learning and Sylvan Learning. I have been trained to teach phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension. I also help students build sight word vocabulary. With guided practice and application, students will apply phonetic knowledge to decode and comprehend stories at their appropriate reading level.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to students 3rd-12th grade in the past ten years at Summit Charter, Huntington Learning and Sylvan Learning. I teach strategies on how to become an effective learner. These strategies include: test preparation, organizational skills, note-taking, time management, and how to set goals. I will also help students identify their learning style and find the best ways for them to learn information. Working on study skills will help students realize that they must take responsibility for their own learning. As a result, they will improve their grades, build their confidence and feel successful in school.

Excellent Tutor — My son has been working with Ms. Jade for about six weeks. I can see in his grades how much he's learned so far. She is amazing at understanding what your child needs and communicating with them. She knew right away what skills our son needed to strengthen in order to improve his reading and tailors each lesson towards those needed skills. We are very impressed with the standards of excellence she ...
