Hello, my name is Jacqueline. I have been tutoring on the needs basis since the beginning of my college career. Currently, I am a writing tutor at my college's writing center. At my job, we focus on the writing process and ensuring that the student leaves with direction of how to approach future papers and a set of techniques or methods that will help them. Although my tutoring is currently focused on writing. I also have experience tutoring elementary and middle school math as well as working with students on spelling and grammar. The most important thing that I've learned from my experiences in tutoring and working with students is that, as a tutor, I want my current or potential students to acquire skills and techniques that will help them in the future and allow them to be successful.

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.

Aspergers

I have tutored/worked with two individuals with Aspergers. I have worked with both of them in improving their writing and in starting writing assignments. We go through each step of the writing process from looking/reviewing the assignment sheet to brainstorming, paragraphing and the final product. I find it important to let the student flesh out their ideas before they begin writing. I want them to have all their ideas on the paper before we start because we can use that information in the paper. I do not like to tell students what to do or take over their assignment. I believe in a peer relationship between the tutor and student, something that I learned from my supervisor at my job at the writing center.

Special Needs

I recently graduated with a degree in Childhood Special Education. In my observations during my college career, I have observed in several different settings with children with special needs. I have observed and worked with children in a self-contained classroom, resource room as well as inclusion classrooms.
I currently tutor a family friend who has Asperger's in writing. I am also a 1:1 aide for a high school student with Autism.
I believe that anyone can learn despite their abilities, disabilities, strengths or weaknesses. All it takes is time and patience.
