About Jane

I began teaching in a self contained classroom in a private school with students of varied ages. Several years later I worked as a pre-school instructor and ultimately at the high school level with special needs students and the general student population, as well. My current position I co-teach in primarily math and English classes. I have tutored intermittently and am able to assist with math up to pre-algebra, writing or reading at the elementary level. I am interested in working with elementary, middle school students who need to keep the rhythm of academia going during the summer. And finally, I enjoy teaching reading/phonics skills to elementary students.

I am adept at teaching the mechanics of grammar, use of apostrophes, homonyms, vocabulary development, etc.

I have experience with ages pre-k through high school. My experiences as a co-teacher in my current position are diversified.

I have a strong background in phonetic awareness from my Special Education training.

If you need to keep up with your math skills, spelling, reading, writing etc,. I would enjoy working with you.

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.

Elementary Math

Because I am a special education teacher, I have many math tips and strategies at my disposal. I am very good at task analyzing to determine where the breakdown is that results in your child not accessing the skills presented in class.

Phonics

I was trained in various methods for reading and spelling/phonemic awareness such as the Orton-Gillingham, approach and the Slingerland multisensory approach early in my career. Currently at the high school level I work with students with decoding and encoding difficulties.

Study Skills

Study skills I am familiar with come from several sources, most recently Marzano strategies and Kansas study skill strategies. Some strategies I am very well versed in are two column notes, linking for vocabulary memorization, association, Frayer models, mnemonic devices, Anticipation Guides, graphic organizers of many types.
