About Jodi

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 (3rd and 6th 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 many of these materials designed specifically for helping children lean elementary math skills.

I am interested in working with homeschooling families and college students seeking daytime tutoring sessions. I have daytime openings and offer a discounted rate of $45/hour for sessions scheduled weekdays between 9:00am and 2:30pm

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT Math

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.

Algebra 1

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.

ASVAB

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.

Econometrics

In addition to successfully completing all necessary PhD level coursework in the field of econometrics, I have experience using econometrics topics in applied research. When tutoring, I use concrete language and real life examples in order to make complex topics easier to understand. I also have experience tutoring statistics which underlays many econometric concepts.

Economics

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.

Elementary Math

I am a certified Montessori teacher. The training I received and the materials I have allow me to help children who struggle with math. I have experience working with children from a wide-variety of backgrounds and have a wide variety of methods to use in order to match each child's individual learning style.
