I am a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago where I earned a Bachelor of Science. My favorite subject was and still is mathematics.
I believe a strong foundation in mathematics helped me to tackle more complex academic topics. I focused on organization and with structured study and frequent practice I succeeded.
I am open to many learning styles and encourage the student to become an independent learner.
I completed college algebra and trigonometry, calculus I and calculus II, as well as finite mathematics. I tutor algebra 1 to both high school and adult students needing to complete their math requirement for graduation. I focus on organizing the information to reduce confusion.
I graduated from the University of Illinois with a G.P.A. of 3.52/4.00. I earned a bachelor of science degree in accounting. However, I have a strong undergraduate background in the liberal arts and sciences. Over 77 credit hours were completed in mathematics, humanities, social sciences, and the physical sciences.
At present I tutor the following:
Elementary math following the Common Core curriculum requirements for 3rd, 6th, 7th grades;
Elementary science, including earth science and beginning physics replete with graphs, diagrams, and formulas, for 3rd, 6th, 7th grades;
Elementary grammar, reading, spelling, vocabulary, as well as, narrative and persuasive essay writing for 3rd, 6th, 7th grades.
I have been tutoring for the past year providing written study guides for each discipline as well as proofreading all completed homework. Lastly, I've learned and continue to learn a great deal from my students. My experience with tutoring continues to be a two way exchange of information. The challenge to come to a session without being able to specifically prepare in advance for a given topic has kept me on my toes. As a result, I bring two big bags of text and reference books along with a smattering of works of fiction if I believe it might be relevant.
I have a bachelor of science in accounting from the University of Illinois. Accounting makes constant use of addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, and percentages. I utilize timed math drills to keep my math facts current.
I earned a bachelor of science from the University of Illinois. I completed 2 courses of Anatomy and Physiology and 2 courses of Inorganic Chemistry, both with their respective laboratory requirements.
I have completed calculus and analytical geometry I and II at the college level. I hold a bachelor of science from the University of Illinois. I tutor geometry for middle school and high school students.
I earned a bachelor of science from the University of Illinois. I completed one year of college level Latin, two years of a Slavic language, and three linguistics courses. My studies in these three areas greatly enhanced my understanding of parts of speech and sentence structure.
Superior Tutor — After using 5 or 6 tutors for our son we tried Jackie and without question, she is superior to any of the others. A very, very good recommendation, I would give her 5 stars.
