Hello! My name is Jessica and I have been teaching for six years. During my six years of teaching I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade, both in the general education and special education classroom. I currently teach at a private (independent) school, and previously taught in the public school system. I am very familiar with IEP's, as well as students who are undergoing the RTI process at their school. One of the most important aspects of teaching/tutoring to me is to foster a love of learning. If students are "burnt out" or disinterested in learning, it is very difficult to make academic progress. I take a holistic approach to teaching/tutoring and examine the factors that can impede a student growth (such as a difficult prior experience with a subject or feelings of frustration). What would my students say about me? I'm kind, caring, very patient, positive and that I love teaching! Why should you pick me to tutor your child? Because I'm patient, experienced and committed to your child's academic growth. With dual certification in Early Childhood Education and Special Education, I have a toolbox of strategies that allows me to find a way to meet the needs of each child I encounter.
