About Jacinta

I enjoy teaching and have been in the education field for decades. I have degrees in Elementary Education, Curriculum & Instruction, Reading Instruction, and Educational Leadership. I have over 15 years of public school teaching in both Atlanta, GA and Chattanooga, TN, 5 years of online teaching (K12, Pearson, Sylvan Online, and college-level courses), and 9 years of home-school teaching of special needs (Asperger's Syndrome and ADHD) children. I have been a tutor for over 20 years.
My specialty is in reading comprehension, oral reading, math application, problem solving, and calculation, test taking skills, social studies/science comprehension, and the writing process. I typically work with students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade.

I am very patient and have a great rapport with children. I can work with students who love to learn and students who need more encouragement. I communicate constantly with parents, so that we are all on the same page. I set high standards for myself, and I teach children how to set high standards and live up to them in their own lives.

My first tutoring session is usually 60 minutes in length. During this session, I evaluate your child's strengths and areas of need. I sit with the student one-on-one to do a quick inventory, then I do a quick inventory with the parent(s) to find out what areas we need to target and the time frame needed to complete the task(s). The remaining sessions will be conducted with individualized lesson plans for the student, and a lesson plan for the parent with homework/enrichment activities to continue the learning process throughout the week. I will communicate with parents prior to tutoring sessions and after sessions so that the learning will continue.

Because I have school-aged children myself, I require a 12-hour cancellation notice and policy. This means you will be charged for a full session if you cancel without a 12 hour advice notice or are a "no show" for a session.

I look forward to working with you and your child/children.

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.

Chess

In Georgia, I was the Chess Teacher/Coach of an after school Chess Club for over 3 years. I learned the game of chess at a young age and have loved the game ever since. I have used online teaching tools and DVDs to teach chess and my students loved it.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a B.S. Degree in Elementary Education, an M.S. Degree in Curriculum & Instruction - Elementary Education, and an Ed.D Degree in Reading I have active teaching certificates in both Tennessee and Georgia.

Microsoft Outlook

As an online teacher for both K12 and college level students for over 10 years, I have become an expert on computers. I use Microsoft products for my personal computer tasks, too. I have over 10 years of experience using MS Outlook, Power Point, Word, and Excel.

Phonics

I have a B.S. degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Language Arts Instruction. I also have a Reading Specialist degree. In my formal schooling, I learned several effective ways to teach phonics-based instruction. I have used Saxton Phonics, Plaid Phonics, Hooked-On Phonics, and Pearson's Phonics programs. I have used Scholastic Phonics programs and online software, too. As a result, I have over 15 years of experience teaching phonics.

Study Skills

As a certified teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience, I have learned and taught study skills techniques to public school students, private school students, and in one-on-one tutoring sessions for students in grades 3 through college-level. I even developed an taught study skills workshops for teachers in Georgia. As a dedicated test taker, I periodically take tests to keep my test taking skills up to date. I have experience taking the following tests: ACT, GRE, NTE, TCT, ant the Praxis Series. I have experience giving the TCAP, ITBS, CRCT, SAT9, CAT, and Terra Nova.
