## Awesome Tutor

Jennifer, 14 lessons with JacinthahJacinthah is an incredible tutor. She is so knowledgeable, patient and really puts a lot of effort into your sessions. I am a VERY beginner in Excel and the program was always foreign and scary to me. She actually has started from the beginning and made it fun. I never thought I could have that happen. She really started from the very beginning for me. Her homework is well thought out and pushes (in a good way) to use what she taught you. I had taken it in a classroom before and it was awful...

I began tutoring 15 years ago as a means of giving back to society. I taught Maths and Computer Science, to students with ages ranging between nine and fifteen. I am given to great pride when my students are able to understand concepts that seemed before to be so difficult and now they are able to see its simplicity. This was done through setting a good foundation and providing positive reinforcement.

I taught Technology at Paul Public Charter Middle School, in Washington DC. I also...

I took Philosophy for Education, English Composition, Studies in Literature, Introduction to Psychology and Communication Skills at my University. I excelled in them at school. They gave an insight into human behavior and the various ways of communication.
I have taught many students in Middle School (grades 7 to 9) and also tutored other students in Maths, Chemistry for ages 8 to 13 years old.
Afterwards, I taught Handwriting, Maths, Grammar, Science, Phonics and Reading, Reading Comprehension for Pre-K to grade 2.
For Handwriting, I focused on writing each letter of the alphabet properly on the line.
For Maths, I focused on Numbers(Numerals, Values, Odd and Even Numbers, Number Sequence and Number Names), Place Values (Hundreds/Tens/Ones), Rounding, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Word Problems, Area, Perimeter, Time, Measurement, Fractions, Times Table, Scales, Pictographs, Money, Flat shapes, Solids
For Grammar, I focused on Parts of Speech(Noun(Proper, Common, Collective), Pronouns, Adjectives, Verbs, Preposition), Synonyms, Antonyms, Question and Statements, Using Punctuation Marks (Full Stop, Question Marks, exclamation Marks, Commas), Singlular and Plural.
For Science, I focused on Habitats, Plants, Landforms (Mountain, Valley, Desert, River, Hill, volcano, Island), Vertebrate, Invertebrates, Animal Classification (Fish, Reptiles, amphibians, Birds, Mammals) , Insects, States of Matter, Wind, Instruments that measure wind, the weather, Forces.
For Phonics and Reading, I focused on vowel and consonant recognition and sounds, blends, rhyming words, decoding (syllables), phonetic games, pronunciation, expression.
For Reading Comprehension, I focused on comprehension, main ideas and Supporting details, cause and effect, expression and Drawing conclusions.

Elementary Math,
#### Elementary Math

I took basic Maths, Algebra and Trigonometry in High School, whereas I took Algebra 1, Calculus and Discrete Maths in my University. I excelled in them at school. I enjoyed Algebra and Discrete Maths, since they dealt with solving mysteries and dealing with logic.

I took basic Maths, Algebra and Trigonometry in High School, whereas I took Algebra 1, Calculus and Discrete Maths in my University. I excelled in them at school. I enjoyed Algebra and Discrete Maths, since they dealt with solving mysteries and dealing with logic.
I have taught reading for about 5 years. I have focused on syllables, comprehension, main ideas, cause and effect, expression and other techniques. I enjoyed seeing three finished product of a child who not only can read but understands what was read.
While teaching for those 5 years, Phonics was also taught. I focused on vowel and consonant recognition and sounds, blends, rhyming words, decoding(syllables), phonetic games and other techniques.
I then became a Homeschool Educator. I have taught in a Home school progam in Washington DC for 4 years working with K-6 graders in Mathematics, Phonics and Reading. During this period, I developed lesson plans for those subjects. Students' academic progress was constantly evaluated on a daily basis. Tests were administered and recorded. It is with great joy to see them master these subjects at their schools now.

Phonics,
#### Phonics

I taught Phonics for two years. I focused on vowel and consonant recognition and sounds, consonant blends and L blends. I also instructed on digraph sounds, rhyming words, decoding (syllables) and phonetic games. These techniques are essential to learning how to read. In the end, the child’s ability to read with the necessary expression is satisfying enough.

Sign Language
#### Sign Language

Sign Language was another way of expressing oneself. I started about 14 years ago. I used a Sign Language book to learn signs for a song to perform at a wedding.
Later, I enrolled my son in a Sign Language Group which also performs occasionally. As a result of carrying my son for practice, I had to learn the signs in order to teach him at home. Ultimately, the parents of each child was asked to join the group. So now I am part of the group learning the signs for each song and also the sign language vocabulary.
I use the American Sign Language and I have learnt the alphabet, numbers, colours, common words, common phrases, and the signs to popular songs.
