Shippensburg University (Bachelors of social)
Frostburg State University (Enrolled)
My name is Jacob, and I am available as a tutor. I have a bachelor's degree in social work from Shippensburg university, and a master of arts in teaching degree from Frostburg State University. I am anxious to get started helping students while I pursue different career options. My strongest subject is reading, particularly comprehension and the decoding of language. I have a solid working knowledge base of strategies to assist in both of these aspects of reading, and I am an avid reader myself. I am also strong in writing, with a full toolbox of skills related to the generation of ideas, as well as craft, structure, and grammar.
I am well versed in science content at the elementary level. I am quite familiar with Common Core content in both areas, have a working knowledge of available resources, and current strategies in teaching practice.
I have spent the past year as a student intern at a local elementary school with diverse populations and diverse levels of ability, and learned well how to differentiate instruction to ensure that learners of all styles and abilities achieve the necessary expectations. Prior to that, I spent three years working in a self contained autistic support classroom, where I helped to implement behavior and learning strategies for students who were profoundly affected. I can say honestly that my clients made tremendous progress. Between my internships and my professional experience, I feel like I would be a well rounded, competent, and capable asset to virtually any learner. Hello learners,

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.
