Hi, my name is Jinny and I am an elementary school teacher. For the past eight years, I have taught fourth grade in a self-contained classroom and have been responsible for teaching all subject areas. I have developed much of the curriculum and created my own worksheets, projects, tests, and activities for my students. Aside from being a classroom teacher, I have been actively tutoring throughout these past eight years to students from within my school as well as students from other schools. I have tutored students in first through eighth grades in all subject areas.

I love working with elementary and middle school aged student and take great pride in working with them. The most rewarding part is seeing how much more confident students can become with a little bit of tutoring and the realization that they can accomplish academic goals if the time and effort are put forth.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary school at the fourth grade level for eight years. My self-contained classroom teaching experience has allowed for much curriculum development and creativity. I am also an experience tutoring having tutored students from first grade through eighth grade in all subject areas. My tutoring experience included enrichment activities as well as working with students who had learning/developmental struggles (ADHD, delayed processing, CP).


As a classroom teacher, I taught handwriting, specifically cursive, to my students. It was first introduced to my students when they were in second and third grade, and I reinforced the skills in fourth grade.I think handwriting is an important skill that many schools are abandoning. I feel handwriting instruction is vital for cognitive development and motor skills.

Study Skills

As a fourth grade classroom teacher, I prepared my students annually for taking standardized tests. I have tutored students who were taking high school entrance and placement exams. Study skills were also incorporated into my daily lesson plans. My students consistently utilized online tools (Quizlet, Spelling City, etc.) to help prepare them for summative assessments.
