About Jessica

I recently completed a post bachelor's teacher preparation program with Georgian Court University. I earned an A in my student teaching course and gained a lot of experience with the array of classes I taught. I have also been a Girl Scout Leader for 4 years. I have 3 children of my own, one of whom is a special needs child. My experience ranges from personal with my own children to reviewing homework and school skills with my scouts and friends of my children. I also worked for the Brick PAL Program teaching Phonics and then Art.

In addition to teaching experience I worked as a camp counselor in the summer of 2005. I spent a few weeks covering a Senior Counselor position while the counselor with seniority was on vacation. I have also worked as a Kindergarten teacher at a Toms River Preschool/Day Care with a Kindergarten and as a building substitute.

Please contact me with any questions you may have!

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.

Aspergers

I hold an endorsement entitled, Teacher of Students with Disabilities. In my training at Georgian Court I took classes which covered teaching students on the Autism Spectrum. I have done research into Asperger's, specifically the work of Dr. Asperger. I have a skill set able to assist students' with Asperger's such as visual cue cards, written schedules, and redirection tactics.

Common Core

In my student teaching placement and for school I was required to teach Common Core aligned lessons. I have studied the Elementary standards and am able to effectively use them with lessons. Common Core Mathematics can be difficult for parents to understand because of the variety of ways it is used. I am able to explain to both parents and students and help them find the way that is best for them.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified K-6th grade teacher. I also hold a TSWD endorsement. I am working towards my Masters in Education.

Special Needs

I hold an endorsement entitled Teacher of Students with Disabilities certification through the Department of Education. I attended school at Georgian Court wherein I was trained in Special Education. I had classes which specifically catered to the Special Education as part of an inclusive class, resource class, and even assessment.

Vocabulary

I should be approved to tutor vocabulary because it is a large portion of the education given in K-6th grade. As a certified K-6th teacher, I create and expand vocabularies for all of my students. My rigorous training has given me many ways to encourage emerging vocabularies to expand.
