About Jacqueline

My teaching career began in college when I was completing my teaching degree in special and elementary education. I began substitute teaching in a high school setting and continued my work after graduation in my hometown middle school as a special education teacher. I have continued teaching in a variety of settings, mostly secondary, including teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) in a Chinese university and a high school on the Big Island of Hawaii. I have taught a variety of subjects, including algebra for special needs, reading, English speaking, and speech & language. Upon becoming a mother, I have utilized my teaching skills to home school my sons and tutor on an as needed basis. I have worked with two elementary school students over the past few years and have recently also been substitute teaching in the local public school district.

As a tutor, you will find that I am dedicated to the students I serve. I am open to tutoring a variety of ages in certain topics. I enjoy assisting with reading, writing, speaking and mathematics. I prefer to help a student pinpoint goals that are clear and attainable in order to help her or him meet with success. I welcome feedback as a professional in order to improve myself as I help my students improve.

Since prealgebra is a content focused subject, having a strong core knowledge of the elements of algebra is key. I have a solid base in this area and am more than capable of assisting students in obtaining the basic skills necessary to prepare them for future algebra instruction.

I have had experience teaching firsthand non-native English speakers. These experiences have been in China, via telecommunication to French students & with Spanish speaking students where I currently live. I have proofread countless papers for students for in class assignments to highly technical documents for company work. I have spoken to hundreds of students at a time in my experiences in China and have taught business English skills to hundreds as well.

My goal is to keep motivation for learning high. I know the importance of meeting a student where she or he is at and scaffolding to the next level. I have knowledge of classroom routines and helpful practices for best meeting the requirements of such settings. Students I work with will know the value I place on them as human beings and that I have genuine interest in helping them get ahead.
