About Jeri

Hello!

My name is Jeri and I have 6+ years of teaching experience. I have taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade, as well as reading intervention for grades 1-6. I received my Bachelor's degree in elementary education from Wayne State University and Master's degree in literacy education from Madonna University.
Teaching is something that I love, so I try to make learning just as enjoyable for my students. After I determine your child's math or reading level, I will gather the appropriate materials to work with them at their level. Additionally, I will incorporate games and lots of hands-on-activities in my lessons whenever possible to keep your child interested and focused. I look forward to working with you!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary teacher and also possess a reading specialist certification. During my career I have taught grades K-6 and have worked helping many struggling students. I have a Bachelors degree in elementary education and a Masters degree in literacy. In addition to my education I have many hours of professional development in teaching reading, writing and math.

Phonics

I have spent the entire school year (2007-2008) working with 1st and 2nd graders. A main focus in both classrooms I worked in was phonics. I am familiar with various phonics programs and have implemented these programs in the classroom. Phonics is an essential component of reading and I feel it is a necessity for success. I have been successfully planning and teaching phonics lessons in my current student teaching placement for over two months now.

Reading

Reading is my area of specialty! I have a great deal of training and experience in teaching struggling readers. I worked for three years as a reading intervention teacher, and also taught small reading groups in my classroom. Additionally, I have a Master's degree in literacy education, which has added to my knowledge of helping struggling readers.
