About Jessica

I am a certified teacher with a major in language arts and a minor in early childhood. I also have a master's degree in reading instruction. I taught first grade for three years and am currently teaching preschool. I have tutoring experience with individual and group settings ranging in grade levels from first through sixth grades.

When working with students, I like to take the first few sessions to get a feel for the student's strengths and struggles as well as their interests. I try to incorporate different types of learning and activities to keep the students interested and focused. I make sure that the student is working on skills that will be beneficial to him/her in the classroom currently and in the future. And of course, I keep in contact with the parents about how they feel the sessions are going and if they see the improvement they are looking for for their child. I am open to feedback and ideas on what works best for every child to help them each succeed.

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.

Common Core

I am qualified to teach common core with my Michigan teaching certificate. I taught first grade for three years, with my last two years transitioning into the common core. Also, when I was working towards my master's degree, our lessons and activities in the classes focused on looking at reading and writing at a deeper level for students, just as with the common core.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor elementary math with my three years of experience teaching first grade. I have also spent another year of my internship teaching kindergarten, first grade, and substitute teaching K-5th grades. For two summers, I taught summer school and worked with students ranging in grades from K-6th grades in various subject areas (including math).

Handwriting

I believe I am qualified to tutor Handwriting because of my teaching and tutoring experience. I have taught preschool, kindergarten, and first grade--each level of education still focusing on handwriting skills. I have used various methods of handwriting practice in the classroom and tutoring settings.

Phonics

My teaching and tutoring experiences provide me with the necessary qualifications to tutor Phonics. I have three years experience teaching first grade, plus two years of tutoring students in language arts. Phonics is a beginning skill to learn how to read and write, which is taught in early elementary. I have taught many lessons and created many activities relating to Phonics.

Study Skills

I have experience working with many students, all of whom work and learn differently. My classroom and tutoring experiences have taught me different ways to teach my students how to manage their studies, and how to practice skills the way they work and learn best. I also have many years of schooling myself to assist in the teaching of study skills.
