About Jalyssa

Hi, here's an update. I am currently receiving my Master's from Full Sail University in Creative Writing. I have been a teacher for five years teaching various subjects from, English, Dram, and Creative Writing. I also work as a tutor at a learning center. I love working with students outside the classroom, that way you can see where they really flourish.

My name is Jalyssa W., I am a native of Miami-Dade County. I received a bachelor's degree in Criminology with minors in English and Sociology from Florida State University. Go Noles! I recently received my teaching certification and I love reading and creative writing. I have been teaching and working in the school system for about five years. Most recently, I taught 6th grade English and Drama. I worked at Southridge High School as a 9th-grade whole-class support and reading interventionist. I believe the most effective way to teach is to meet the student where they are and make the lesson life applicable so it is easily remembered.

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.

Common Core

I currently tutor children in all grades from Kindergarten to 12th grade. I am a Middle school English teacher and I am currently receiving my Master's in Creative Writing. I have experience in tutoring and teaching to Common Core standards and preparation for FSA testing.

Criminal Justice

I am qualified to tutor in Criminal Justice and Criminology. I have a 4 year BS in Criminology/Criminal Justice. And 4 years worth of Legal and Public Affairs. I have a love for figuring out why people commit crimes and how the justice system works and sometimes doesn't work as well as it should. With my 8 years of experience I have found a way to make criminology fun by making it life applicable.

English

Certified teacher in Middle Grades English 5-9

Phonics

I am a Middle School English teacher. I focus on handwriting, phonics, grammar, and all things English. By the time my students reach High School their writing schools are comparable to higher level High School students. Writing is my passion and I like to get all my students passionate about being able to creatively communicate effectively through writing and speaking.

Reading

Certified Middle Grades English 5-9 (3 years)

Study Skills

I am an English teacher and I have found the best way to learn a subject is to find a way to make it life applicable. If you can make it interesting then there is no limit to what you can learn. I have turn hard subject matter into songs and other mnemonic devices to help myself and my students remember.
