About Jody

I'm an elementary school Special Education teacher. I have a Master of Education Degree in Reading and Learning Disabilities. I have taught all ages through high school. Preschool and early elementary are my favorite.

I believe in learning through games and hands-on techniques. I love sharing books and doing thematic activities related to the stories. I believe in using technology to teach. The library is a great place too!

If you want to have fun while learning, call me. I'm flexible and can adapt to different ideas. Children have ideas too and if they have a choice in their learning it's more than likely they will be better learners.

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.
