I love K-3! I have taught for over 20 years in elementary school 2-4th grades as well as a Reading Specialist K-5 and currently as a coach to teachers. 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. For K-3 math, I have lots of hands on materials and games to make Math interesting and engaging. I believe in a combination of basic computation with various strategies.
If you're interested in SPANISH semesters 1-6:
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 only tutor students who are already enrolled in a junior high, high school or college Spanish class.
I would prefer to meet clients at the Tempe, Mesa Dobson, Mesa Public or Chandler Sunset Library, for Scottsdale students- Tempe Marketplace, for Ahwatukee students AJ's or Starbucks at Ray and I-10. I could also meet at coffee shops that are close to Tempe. I'm willing to negotiate on meeting clients at their homes , if the home is within an 8 mile area of my home in Tempe (Baseline and McClintock). I will need to meet at a public place at the first meeting.
I look forward to hearing from you!

Jody is an incredible tutor. It takes a lot to keep my daughter interested and engaged, but Jody succeeds every time. She brings a whole suitcase full of fun activities and projects to keep my daughter learning and interested. She uses iPad apps as well as hands on learning tools to help her succeed. Jody is great with scheduling and is very personable. I definitely recommend her!!!!
Ms. Jody is an amazing tutor. She's very patient with my son. He has ADHD and can be easily distracted. She knows exactly how to keep him engage and makes learning fun for him with learning games and activities. She is also advance with different learn tools that are appropriate for his skill level. Also, she collaborates with his teacher's assignments and her learning materials. Her learning methods are strategic by allowing him to earn points (fun stickers) for each completed lesson, which keeps him engaged, motivated, and excited to learn. And at the end of his sessions, he's rewarded with a special toy, which my son looks forward to. She goes over and beyond. We are very lucky to have her in our lives.
Jody did a great job tutoring my daughter. She made learning fun for her by using puzzles and memory games. We will continue to schedule tutoring sessions with her. I highly recommend this tutor☺
Jody is always on time and prepared with different types of learning materials for my son. She is patient and focused on my son throughout the lesson. Strongly recommended!
Jody let me know where my son's reading level was through some assessments. She was able to let me know his strengths and weaknesses and the plan she has to get him reading on level. Excited to see his progress!
It was only the first session but we feel confident we made a great choice. Teaching young children to read is her specialty. I will follow up the reviews as we move forward. Seeing her previous reviews had an impact on our decision.
My son was nervous about having a tutor. Jody was great working with him and when they were done my son was so happy and can't wait for lesson #2.
Jody is a very kind lady. My son enjoys his time with her. She is very patient and works with him. She always has good lesson plans and in only a few weeks I have noticed a great improvement. Thank you Jody!
Jody has been a great find for us! I'm so grateful she lives in the area and willing to come to my place. My grandson is doing so much better in school with her help. Thank you, Jody!
Jody has been working with my son for about a month and he really enjoys tutoring with her. She is very kind and patient, she has been flexible with her schedule to work around ours. I've already seen an improvement with his reading and he enjoys it even more now! !!
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.
