About Jocelyn

Dear Families,

I am NOW accepting students for summer tutoring. Please contact me for more information.

As a teacher in the community, I'm pleased to bring my training and expertise to tutoring. It is a thrill to work one-on-one with individuals or small groups who need a little support to reach their educational goals. I am an elementary school teacher, but can help in various subjects for middle school and adult learners. I have my M.Ed in Special Education with an endorsement in ESOL education.

Currently, I work as a second grade teacher at a language school. In the past have worked with at-risk students in my local school district, helping them with math concepts. I am able to help my students with instruction using real-life practical examples and simulations. I create multiple paths so that students of different abilities, interest, or learning needs can experience equally appropriate ways to absorb, use, develop and present, concepts as a part of the daily learning process. I allow students to take greater responsibility and ownership for their learning.

For all of my students I develop an individualized learning plan with assessments and progress monitoring along the way. I am an experienced, professional, and qualified private tutor that assists students, home schooled students, homework help, review of classroom material, test and exam preparation for the class, as well as study and organization skills. Please contact me for more details about my tutoring and teaching. I look forward to working with YOU!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have had the pleasure to work with many children whom have ADD and ADHD. Right now I am working in the process of getting certified through special education as well.

When I work with children whom have ADD/ADHD I use a variety of techniques.

1. Make directions clear and short. Repeat if necessary.

2. Make each task specific…in other words; instead of giving several directions at once, split the directions into smaller steps.

3. Give reminders often, coaxing the child to finish. It is important to complete projects once started to help the child learn to sequence beginning to end.

4. Use interesting materials; hands-on activities, visual and auditory aids.

5. Most of all I am patient, as this is the best strategy for helping a student.

Dyslexia

As a teacher, I have taught and tutored children with dyslexia for 4 years in addition to working a consultant in dyslexia for teachers and families. Moreover, my Masters degree is in Special Education with a certification in reading. Techniques I use to help children with dyslexia in reading are phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, explicit phonic teaching, spelling, multi-sensory reinforcement, controlled reading with decodable text, fluency, vocabulary comprehension, as well as progress monitoring. The techniques I use are similar to Orton methodology. I am in the process of receiving my Orton training. However, this certification takes a 1yr to finish!.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in elementary education with the state of Georgia T-4 ECE P-5. I also have a BS degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I have a strong desire to educating young minds and help them blossom into, well-rounded, responsible, and successful individuals. From my experience thus far, I have had wonderful opportunities to teach a diverse group of students, including those with learning disabilities, those who perform at grade level and below and those who are gifted/exceptional.

Elementary Math

I have had wonderful opportunities to teach a diverse group of students in math, including those with learning disabilities, those who perform at grade level and below, and those who are gifted/exceptional.

As a tutor I help guide students through the solution process. I ask the student leading questions that will direct the student towards the correct steps. I also help by teaching concepts. This helps my students become independent learners. In mathematics, it is important to teach concepts rather than just processes or procedures. Understanding the concepts makes remembering the procedures easier.

ESL/ESOL


I was able to teach ESL in Costa Rica. I have excellent communication skills, patience, and ability to relate to students of diverse backgrounds. I help students with basic theory, teaching speaking, grammar, listening, reading and writing skills.

Handwriting

I have taught children handwriting skills throughout my teaching career. Strategies I use involve a developmental sequence. I use multisensory approaches to incorporate a sense of fun and engagement during activities. In addition, I build on prior knowledge so that students are not frustrated with the handwriting process.

Phonics

As a teacher, I am certified in reading and language development. I have had the opportunity to help students in preschool and kindergarten learn phonics in order to help them learn to read. Phonics, the connection between individual letters and its sound, are the building blocks to reading. Early readers sound out and decode words to make meaning. This is done by helping the student develop pre-reading skills and encourage emergent literacy through spoken language, phonological awareness, print awareness, and more.

Reading

I am certified in Elementary education which also includes reading p-5. I am able to teach students how to read by breaking down concepts that start from learning phonics, guided reading and comprehension strategies. I also love to help children acquire a love for reading.

Special Needs

I have received my Master's degree in Special Education. In the past, I have worked with at-risk students for Cobb County in their math program. I have taught inclusionary classes as a first and second grade teacher. I thoroughly enjoy working with students who have special needs. I have the patience, dedication, and I enjoy the challenge of helping students who need the extra support.

Study Skills

As a certified teacher in Elementary education (p-5) and tutor I have worked with students in elementary and middle school to help them acquire study skills. I have helped my students with study skills by showing them to apply certain strategies and tips. The most important part of study sills is to help a students with organization skills as well.

During a study skills sessions, I cover note taking, time management, organization, binder skills, learning styles, concentration and memory, test preparation, and test taking tips. A regular routine and assigned time for homework is also essential.

One of the first things that I generally do in the first two sessions is to help the student develop a working notebook.

The working notebook is the daily notebook your child takes to class.

I have found that this strategy helps students get organized and with help with general study skill habits.
