About Jacqueline

Hi and welcome to my profile page.

I worked as a credentialed elementary school teacher for seventeen (17) years. I left in June to pursue other interests in education but I still have the passion to work with students and to teach. Nothing is more satisfying for a teacher than to see a student have a breakthrough and understand a skill they have been taught.

My specialties lie in reading, the writing process, test taking skills and language acquisition. A large percentage of my students have been second language learners.

Throughout my career I taught hundreds of children and adults to read, write and speak English. I have worked with pre-K to high school students.

My strategies, methodology and the way I interact with students have been successful. I always approach a student with positive reinforcement so that they are not afraid to learn.

I have also served as a parent advocate at SSTs and IEPs. I understand the process. I also know that, at times, parents are outnumbered by the school's "team" and are intimidated by the process. I know the system, and its process, and can serve as your advocate.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I worked as a credentialed classroom teacher for many years. My school practiced mainstreaming so several of my students were ADD/ADHD. I also taught ADD/ADHD students before they were identified. I am patient with these students and have developed strategies to make learning easier.

CBEST

I was a classroom teacher for 17 years. I took the CBEST and passed the test the first time. I also worked as a mentor teacher.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a qualified tutor. I have a California Clear Credential. I also achieved National Board Certification. I have seventeen years experience working as a classroom teacher.

Phonics

I have been a teacher for 17 years. I taught phonics throughout my teaching career. I have a Master's degree in education. I have taught adults, second language learners, phonics.

Study Skills

I am very good at teaching study skills. I use notecards to study vocabulary. I have taught students how to study for spelling tests using notecards and repetition. I have also taught the multiplication tables through flashcards and repetition.

Very patient!!!! — Upon meeting her for the first time she was very personable. Usually my son isn't that happy about learning. On the first visit she tried different strategies to get a response. At the end of the tutoring session he completed some of the work she gave him. Which is very good for him seeing as though he usually cries his way out of everything. She gave him flash cards for sight words and when she l ...
