About Jackie

My love for teaching began as I grew up helping my mom teach Sunday School and when I was 14 years old I started teaching on my own. These experiences led me to study education in college. I graduated with highest honors from the University of Michigan with a degree in education with a focus on math and social studies. I have taught middle school math and high school math, and between tutoring privately and for tutoring programs like 21st Century Learning, I have tutored almost every middle/high school math subject possible. I am certified to teach math K-12 in two different states (Arizona and Indiana). I recently stopped teaching full time so that I can be a full time mom. However, I still love teaching and am continuing to tutor part time.

As much as possible, I like to make math relate-able and enjoyable. I love to have fun, but I also make sure we get our work done. When I'm tutoring, it is all about you. I do not enter into tutoring with my own "agenda." You tell me what you need--whether it is help understanding a particular concept/lesson, or preparation for a certain exam or course, etc--and I will then tailor our sessions to your needs. I do not have a "one size fits all" approach, rather a custom approach based upon your needs as a student.

Contact me for more information and to get your next session scheduled!

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

I have 5 years of teaching experience of several middle and high school math subjects, including Algebra I. During that time I also tutored almost all of the different middle and high school math subjects, as well. When tutoring I do not come in with my own agenda, rather I listen to my student's goals and what they want to accomplish through tutoring and help them achieve their goals.

Algebra 2

I have taught various math subjects at public middle and high schools for 5 years. Algebra II is one of my favorite classes to teach! I can offer tips and tricks for how to solve different types of problems, and love to go step-by-step in order to help my students understand. When it comes to tutoring, I work toward the needs of my students. I do not come with my own agenda, but I tailor each session to your needs and goals. Contact me today to learn more or get started!

Flute

I have played the flute for over 20 years and have always excelled at it. I started college as a music major, but finished up in math education. I played in the marching band at the University of Michigan and continued to study flute privately and played in the other bands at U of M, as well. I have taught flute privately to both beginners and experienced players, and have taught group lessons, band camps, marching band sectionals, etc. I would love to help you learn to play, prepare for a contest, or take your playing to the next level. Contact me today to get started.

Geometry

I have two years of experience teaching geometry in a public high school. I have also guided students through an independent study of the course. I love geometry because there are so many hands-on and real-life applications. I even love those pesky proofs--which can totally begin to make sense once you start to think in step-by-step processes and logic. Contact me today to get started!

Prealgebra

I used to teach Pre-Algebra at a public middle school. During that time, I also tutored students privately in all middle school math levels, including Pre-Algebra. When I tutor, I tailor all sessions to the needs of the student. If you need help with your homework, preparing for a test, understanding a particular concept, etc. I can help! Also, if you would like to study Pre-Algebra over the summer to test out of it (if your school allows that) and take advanced math in the fall, I'm happy to help with that, as well!
