##### About Jackie

I have a degree in Elementary Education from Elmhurst College (Elmhurst, IL). I’ve recently moved to Arizona from Chicago, IL. I was student teaching in a fourth grade classroom from August 2015 until December 18, 2015. Leading up to my move out here I tutored two students that I had previously taught during my Student Teaching. I have been observing and participating in classrooms the entirety of my College career. In that time have taught students ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade.

I have been tutoring since high school, and have loved every minute of it. My favorite part about tutoring is the one-on-one benefit. With the one-on-one attention I feel that I am able to teach to a student’s specific needs, therefore allowing me to give the student everything they need to succeed on an individual level. My goal is that of the student and the parents: success in school and in learning.

Math is a subject I excel in; In fact, my minor was math in college. I taught math often during my time as a student teacher. I added math into our additional periods when we had time. I was able to make my lesson more engaging through hands on activities, games and incorporating technology. My most recent tutoring experiences required a great portion of math.

During my beginning of student teaching, I was able to take a regular grammar lesson and turn it into engaging lessons for the entire classroom by incorporating technology and students’ interests as a whole. I also am a big advocate for promoting understanding and utilization of vocabulary with younger students. I know a variety of techniques to get students excited about using new vocabulary.

At Elmhurst College the only way we, as students, were taught to teach is through use of common core. At my school in which I taught I had to incorporate a new math common core curriculum to the classroom. I have been well trained to use and utilize the common core in the classroom.

I have a degree in Elementary Education, which allows me to teach up to 8th grade. During my student teaching I had to take on all core subjects and have been taught the new standards, as well as how to plan a lesson based on those guidelines.

I really love being able to work with students, and I might say that my favorite part is giving them the confidence they need to succeed in all subjects. In IL my students loved having me as a part of their classroom, so much so that they still send me e-mails on their progress now. I always treat my students fairly and with the respect they deserve, regardless of age. I know that all of my students are capable, and I make it my mission to show them that they are successful!
