About Jacqueline


Bio

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...

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.

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 left he was eager to go over a few!!!!! I think this will be a great fit.

Jacqueline is great

Jacqueline is great with my six year old daughter! My daughter is having problems reading and writing correctly and has improved so much since Jacqueline started with us about 7 weeks ago. She is very kind and has a great way of explaining that she is here to help not to grade like the teacher.

Great with kids and very responsible!

I got incredibly lucky finding Jackie by simply browsing the internet for English tutors. She was an LAUSD elementary school teacher for 17 years - what more can you ask for?!? She charges less than many recent college graduates, but has far more relevant experience. She can tutor anyone of any age in English (she even has extensive ESL experience), but I needed someone who could patiently teach my easily distracted 1st grader the basics of reading. I've never seen my daughter sit still for 2 hours 1:1 before Jackie! My daughter has blossomed after just 6 weeks and is now a beginner reader and one of the more advanced students in her class. I can't be happier with Jackie and plan to continue the tutoring sessions for the rest of the school year.
