I am an intelligent, fun-loving, enthusiastic former college instructor who loves learning and helping others learn. I can help make mind-boggling subjects more manageable and maybe even fun.
After completing a Master's degree in economics, I taught both math and economics at community college and university, followed by several years of tutoring. While teaching Algebra 1, I excelled at helping students who had always struggled with math gain confidence and begin to enjoy the class. I received some of the highest evaluations the school had ever seen.
My Montessori training and work with my own children (1st and 4th grade) has uniquely prepared me to help elementary students in math and language. The Montessori method of using concrete materials to build a foundation for abstract ideas is ideally suited for children struggling with reading or math concepts. I have a "classroom" in my garage filled with materials designed specifically for helping children lean elementary math skills.

Jodi was very flexible in meeting our changing schedule. She spent extra time working with my son and didn't watch the clock!! We appreciated that a lot.
She is tutoring me on Linear Algebra which is very difficult but has a great way of explaining things in a simple manner.
Jodi has been a patient and caring scholar providing careful guidance and subject knowledge that has helped a student that needed that personal attention that only a talented tutor can provide. Her assistance is greatly appreciated and the progress of my grand daughters confidence is well noticed.
My student's progress in her class continues to improve. She has pulled herself up in terms of her grade and her quiz results also show great improvement. Jodi has continued to work with her and help her to understand the subject. She has brought her mid-term grade up to a good, respectable "C"! Great work, Jodi!!
Jodi is a phenomenal tutor. I've been working with her for 2 months while studying for my GRE. I had seen a few other tutors previously before I tutored with her and while other tutors may be smart, they didn't help me really understand what I was doing and why. Within one session with Jodi she made me truly understand the content of the questions I had asked the other tutors. While working through problems, she makes you work just as hard as she's working. She'll ask you questions about what would your next step be, your answer, and then she'll give you clarification for why that's a common mistake, or why that is the correct step. Jodi also goes beyond what most tutors would, and she gave me access to more study materials (GRE tests, study problems that were my weak points, ETS PDF workbooks) outside of the tutor session. If you give her a list of some difficult problems, she'll work through them on her own time so when it comes to your one hour session, you can accomplish more with your hour. You'll be surprised how much you can cover in an hour. Her feedback and methods were invaluable to me. She helped me raise my Quantitative GRE score from 156 to 159. I'm quite pleased with that!
Jodi is an excellent PreCalc tutor. She has a lot of patience and works extremely well with our daughter. Her guidance and knowledge not to mention her calm personality is a plus to anyone who needs a math tutor. They work well on homework assignments when our daughter is stuck on a problem, strategies for test taking and test prep. Unfortunately Jodi is moving to California in June so we will miss her tutoring our daughter. Hopefully when she gets settled in CA she will tutor there and others will know she is a great choice for an excellent math tutor! Save travels Jodi!
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.
I have an extensive math background. I have worked with a wide-range of skill levels from those struggling with the basics to those trying to ace the section. I understand the importance of quality preparation in either case.
I have years of experience teaching algebra 1 subject matter to college students. I have developed unique ways of presenting material that appeals to struggling students. I utilize hands on material whenever possible.
As a military spouse with tutoring experience I am well-suited for ASVAB preparation. I have experiene working with individuals from many different backgrounds. I understand the importance of scoring well on the ASVAB in order to land the job of your dreams in the military.
I have a bachelor's degree and master's degree in economics as well as several years of teaching experience. I know how to make economics understandable and doable, by using simple language and concrete examples.
I am a certified Montessori teacher. The training I received and the materials I have allow me to help children who struggle with math.
