About Jordana

I am a graduate of Elmhurst College, having received my Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Communication Studies. I am currently pursuing an M.Ed in Elementary Education from Loyola University Chicago and have broad plans to eventually pursue a doctorate in educational administration. I discovered my passion for teaching towards the end of my undergraduate career and have been working on helping others flourish academically ever since. I am certified to tutor a wide variety of subjects, though I am very passionate about English, Public Speaking, and elementary level subjects. I believe that the ability to utilize the spoken and written word is essential to function in society and that there is no limit to what can be achieved with strong communication skills. My teaching philosophy is that any student can learn and that education does not have to be boring! Teaching requires discovering the student's strengths and passions and tailoring creative educational approaches that connect with the student's interests. I love incorporating games and activities into my sessions! My outside activities and interests include theater, improv comedy, color guard, Drum Corps International, reading new books and obsessively rereading my old favorites, video games, and exploring the local forest preserve.

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.
