About Jody

It's important to hire someone who is familiar with the rigor of Arizona's Common Core standards. I'm a certified teacher in Arizona and Texas. I'm also a National Board Certified teacher in early childhood literacy. As a master teacher, I know how to pinpoint student's area of interest as well as change strategies or methodologies when needed.

I love K-3 literacy! I have taught for over 20 years in elementary school in various grades and positions. Currently, I'm a Reading Interventionist at an elementary school. I love the light bulb that goes on as students become more confident as readers, writers and spellers. This passion led me to pursue the rigorous National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. In 2012, I became a National Board Certified Teacher in Early Childhood Literacy. I believe in using a combination of phonics with patterned, high interest books. I also mix it up with some games and IPAD applications. My goal is to develop students who will LOVE to read and write.

Although I'm currently a Reading Specialist, I've also taught classroom Math grades 2-4, as well as being the gifted/talented teacher K-8. I have lots of hands on materials and games to make Math interesting and engaging.

I have an undergraduate degree in Spanish from the University of Minnesota. I have a Masters degree from ASU in Bilingual Education. I have studied abroad in Spain and I've traveled in Mexico and Guatemala. I'd love to teach basic to intermediate levels of Spanish for all age groups. I prefer to tutor students who are already enrolled in a junior high, high school or college Spanish class.

Now that school is back in session my availability will be limited to weekends. I have tutored students at the Mesa Dobson, Tempe and Chandler Sunrise libraries. I will also consider tutoring at client's homes if it is within close proximity(Within 5 miles) of my home in Tempe.

I look forward to hearing from you!
