About Jakera

I am currently living in Saint Petersburg, Florida. I teach 3rd grade at a local Charter school. In previous years I have taught 5th grade for 3 years and 3rd grade for 2 years. Teaching is my passion and is what lead me to earn my Master's in Curriculum and Instruction in May 2015.

I have years of training from the Escambia County School District in Pensacola, Florida on teaching struggling readers. I have come to love teaching reading and teaching students how to become a better reader. Tutoring will allow me to help children who may need extra support outside of the general education classroom and one-on-one instruction.

I have taught students for years who are at least 2 years below grade in the past. With the use of direct and engaging instruction several of my students were able to make a year's worth of learning gains if not more. I differentiate the instruction by using videos, interactive notebook activities, and math manipulatives during instructions. Students enjoy math we they have a visual and hands-on experience.

As a child, I struggled with comprehending what I have read. This struggle has turned into a huge benefit for me and for my students. Over the years, I have learned to use pre-reading strategies, during reading strategies to help guide me through a text. I implement these same strategies in my classroom and 100% of my students have increase their ability to analyze and understand high complexity text.

Common Core is mainly structured around student engagement and critical thinking. During instruction I allow my students to interact with the texts and math concepts. They are responsible for their learning and they are confident learners. I require that they provide proof or evidence when giving answers. I allow for collaborative conversations to take place in the classroom.

I am an outstanding tutor because just like in my classroom, I make learning fun, relatable, and engaging for the student.

If you are struggling in Reading, English Language Arts or Math and want to learn how overcome this struggle in an engaging and fun way, then please contact me!
