About Jessica

Hi, I am Jessica.

I have 3 years experience teaching Special Education (including student teaching). I have taught grade levels 1st grade through 9th grade. I am particularly confident teaching and tutoring reading and writing content. I believe tutoring students in the one-on-one or small group setting is a great way to boost confidence, make connections, and allow students to practice what they learn in school, in a different setting. I value hard work and confidence. I enjoy helping students create connections and develop meaning when learning. I want students to know how to complete an assignment, but I also want them to care about their assignments. I want them to understand why they are working on a specific skill.

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.

Autism

I am special education teacher. I have 3 years experience teaching students with learning, behavioral, emotional, and significant disabilities, including those with Autism, from 1st to 9th grade. I have passed both the Praxis Elementary Content Test and Colorado PLACE Teacher licensure test.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am special education teacher. I have 3 years experience teaching students from 1st to 9th grade. I have passed both the Praxis Elementary Content Test and Colorado PLACE Teacher licensure test. I have taught elementary students in pull-out and inclusive settings in a range of subjects, especially reading, writing, and math.

Phonics

As a Special Education student, student teaching in fall 2013, I have taken numerous classes in teaching phonics, reading, and writing. I have also tutored in this area with a program called AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination). I believe in achievement through developing student needs by fostering their strengths. In phonics, for example, that may mean practicing reading using books the student enjoys.

Proofreading

I have recently completed the coursework required to become specialized in teaching English as a special education teacher. I have both taught and tutored in writing concepts, including proofreading, to elementary, middle, and high school aged students. Tutoring methods in the area include identifying a specific focus for the lesson, having the student identify the strengths of the piece of writing and what could be improved, as well as making sure the student walks away with a piece of knowledge about writing that he or she did my know previously.

Special Needs

I am special education teacher. I have 3 years experience teaching students with learning, behavioral, emotional, and significant disabilities, from 1st to 9th grade. I have passed both the Praxis Elementary Content Test and Colorado PLACE Teacher licensure test.

Study Skills

I am special education teacher. I have 3 years experience teaching students with learning, behavioral, emotional, and significant disabilities, from 1st to 9th grade.
