About Jackie

I am a highly qualified, experienced, and certified high school teacher who offers excellent tutoring in the following areas:
· Test Prep – I know the current school system places major emphasis on testing and I can help your child be more successful in passing these tests. I have taught test prep classes (FCAT equivalent) to high school students with great results.

· EOC Exams – I have taught classes that required end-of-course testing; my students have been very successful in passing the exams.

· Reading – I can help improve reading skills, including reading comprehension, context clues analysis, and vocabulary building.

· Math - I have a strong math and science background, therefore I tutor very successfully in math middle-school through Algebra 1.

· Science – My strong science background allows me to provide excellent tutoring in middle-school science, earth science, and physical science.

· Social Science – Social science is my primary area of study and experience.

· Computers – I worked in Information Technology for several years and am Microsoft certified. I have vast experience in computer technology training/teaching including Microsoft Office to networking.

· School Projects – I have a creative streak in me so I am really good at helping students create and complete interesting school projects.

Philosophy: I strongly believe that schools need to teach students how to not only ‘pass a test’ but also learn to think on their own. I place a big emphasis on “hows” and “whys’. I also try to incorporate life lessons, especially when tutoring for social studies. I believe that a major part of success in school is knowing how to study, therefore, I will incorporate a healthy studying skills in every tutoring session,
Individualization: I have experience with students with special needs and also have taught gifted and AP classes. I believe that each student is different, therefore I tailor my tutoring to each student’s needs.
Where: While I am willing to have lessons at your home, I think it’s important for students to be in an environment that is most conducive to learning. I will try to reserve study rooms at local libraries.

I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Microsoft Excel

I am Microsoft Office certified.

Public Speaking

In college, I took a public speaking class and received an A in the class. As a teacher, I am in front of students and have to conduct presentations for parents. I have also done voiceover work.
I understand the importance of public speaking and know it is a fear people have. I take pride in teaching techniques that will help anyone.

Social Studies

I have a professional teaching certificate from the state of Florida in Social Studies (grades 6-12, broad field).

Study Skills

I taught a test prep/study skills class for 12th graders in Atlanta. I have helped students learn to read test questions and how to find the correct answer even if they don't feel confident on the subject. Over 80% of my students (that previously failed) that took my test prep classes passed.
As a high school teacher I have incorporated how to have healthy study skills as part of my daily lessons.

World History

I am a certified social studies teacher in Florida for grades 6-12.
