About Jenny

I have always helped out other people. Coming from a two-parent educator family, it was not unexpected when all four of us girls graduated from college. I followed in my parents footsteps and became an educator. I was drawn to help those who did not understand easily. This is when I found the field of special education.
I have worked in institutional, recreational, and public school settings, from younger students through high school. Once the highly-qualified requirements came out, I got certified for regular education math and reading. I like to help others understand the subject they need, learning more about the students and what can make him/her understand. I have high expectations for whomever I can help learn.

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.

Algebra 1

High School Math 9-12

Algebra 2

I possess a T-5 Teacher's Certificate from the state of Georgia certifying me in this subject area. The certificate is valid until 2018.

Autism

I have successfully completed the Treatment and Education of Autism and Communication Handicapped Children and Adults (TEACCH). I have also attended and used Sensory Integration training. Later on, I was trained for aggression difficulties with Mindset Aggression Training.
I have worked with autistic students in inclusive and self-contained classrooms.

Dyslexia

Having taught in the field of special education for over 14 years, many students have these dyslexic characteristics. The video FAT city helped explain many of these reversals to me. Structuring tasks from left-to-right, top-to-bottom is one of the strategies to emphasize when reading or completing math problems. Other assistive technology tools, such as word windows or colored overlays can also assist.

Special Needs

I have worked with special needs students for over 14 years. I have worked with students qualifying for special education with: behavior disorder, autism spectrum, learning disability, developmental delay, hearing impaired, vision impaired, cognitive disabilities, orthopedic impairment. I have attended ongoing training and professional development in all of these areas.

Volleyball

I began to play volleyball in the fifth grade. Our high school team was state-ranked, and I continued to play in college with a Division II scholarship. I still play recreationally and have coached at the high school level for 3 years.
