About Jodi

I have been involved in education for the past 17 years; as a parent volunteer, school board member, classroom aide, substitute teacher, homeschooling parent, elementary school secretary and grants manager and, most recently, working with military veteran students at a community college. In addition, after a 35 year break in my own education, I recently completed my AA and an AAS-Family Life Education, earning a 4.0 GPA.

As I lifelong learner I have always understood the importance of a quality education, but it wasn't until I volunteered in my daughter's kindergarten class that I truly understood how difficult it can be for a student to 'catch-up' if he/ she falls behind. Sometimes that can be as simple as providing a different way of looking at the subject or perhaps a different set of study skills. We all learn in different ways and finding the key to a student's learning style can often unlock the door to understanding. Over the past 17 years I have helped students of all ages to stay in step with their grade level/ college courses. Learning isn't just about memorizing the facts, it's about understanding the subject.

Reading truly is fundamental; if you can read you can be and do anything. I put tremendous effort into finding out what opens the window to reading for each student with whom I tutor.

Having been in and a part of elementary education classes in various parts of the country, as well as overseas, I have an understanding of many different teaching methods and learning styles.

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.

Study Skills

I have been involved in education for the past 17 years; as a parent volunteer, school board member, classroom aide, substitute teacher, homeschooling parent, elementary school secretary and grants manager and, most recently, working with military veteran students at a community college.

Throughout that time I have helped a myriad of students discover the study skills that are best suited to their learning style, lifestyle, and pocketbook.

Good study skills are also good life skills, period. Most often if a student is lacking in good study skills there are other facets of their life that are out-of-control. By bringing all of the areas of their life; school, home, work, and social or community life, under control they are ready and able to succeed.
