We found Jody to be fun, happy, full of life. My daughter was very attracted to her teaching style. As an employee of a school district, I saw the communication skills with us and my daughter. She has the engaging, empowering skills required by anyone working with children. And when combined with her happy personality and the fun learning environment, we know that we have chosen the right teacher for our daughter's success. We also found Jody very easy to work with. She was very open to scheduling and whatever it takes to touch our daughter's life. Ms. Jody is all about the kids and for a teacher, that says it all. Our daughter and we have committed fully to Ms. Jody.
Jody truly understands the needs of the ESL student. She comes prepared with many effective resources to help guide the ESL student to learn English as it relates to the school experience. In our case, she has an understanding of Japanese to aid our Japanese grandson with his transition to America. She has the ability to listen carefully to the student to determine his needs and then to work and assist in solving these problems. Jody is skilled at assisting with the learning in all basic subjects in addition to facilitating language development.
Jody has been a pleasure to work with. She is always prompt and well prepared for each session. More importantly, she really does like the student and is taking a personal interest in helping him grow in this transitional time. He has advanced rapidly in the month's time that Jody has been tutoring. We are blessed by the good work that she is doing!
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.
