I am currently working on my master's degree in bilingual education with Texas A&M. I have dual Bachelor of Science degrees, and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2000. I am certified by the state of Texas to teach classes in English, language arts and reading. Additionally, I have traveled to and lived in Central America while attending the University of Costa Rica.
I have experience tutoring children as young as six years old up to adults in their 50s. Aside from working in the Dallas ISD, I have also worked as a substitute teacher for Katy ISD, in multiple subjects in elementary, middle and high school students. I have also worked as a substitute teacher for other private schools in the Dallas areas.
Aside from being recognized as highly qualified in English, language arts, and reading, I have experience teaching swimming and basketball.
During our first meeting, for which there is no charge, I prefer to meet with you and/or your child face-to-face to create a goal-oriented action plan to ensure we're working together to accomplish the results you want and to uncover any additional challenges we may discover.
Thank you for your time and consideration, I look forward to helping you achieve success! I am currently working on my master's degree in bilingual education with Texas A&M.

So far Jerrod has helped my son maintain a B in reading which in comparison from last quarter is a huge improvement. Very patient and kind. Overall an A+ tutor.
Its too early to tell, but my child's first lesson with Jerrod was great. Along with information provided, I saw Jerrod's approach to see what problems may exist that he could use to help my son achieve his goal in becoming a better reader. My son and I look forward to his next lesson.
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.
I played basketball as a child, all the way up until 8th grade. I played on the 7th grade championship team and the 8th grade runner-up team. I played college intramural basketball, as well.
