About Jacqueline

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile today!

I am a NY State Certified Teacher with a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts and a Master's degree in Special Education. I am ABA trained. I have over 10 years of experience in teaching all academic subjects focusing on reading (one of my favorite subjects to teach!).

Additionally, I have work and school background in art and digital art. I love to teach these subjects as well which allows my students to express themselves visually! I have a passion for sharing my knowledge and am a patient teacher. If a student and his/her family is not satisfied with a session I will not bill for that session.

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.

ADD/ADHD

After graduating with a Master's degree in Special education, I went on to teach students with Autism, ADD, ADHD and Dyslexia. Currently, I help children and some adults with learning behavioral issues that may interfere with learning which includes poor study habits and attention skills.

Adobe Photoshop

I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts with a concentration in Fine Arts & Photography. I have a Master's Degree in Education with a minor in Graphic Design.

I worked in the field of Graphic design and Photography for advertising agencies, specializing in Photoshop.

As a Photoshop teacher I start with the basics:
I like to begin with the core basics:
Creating a file, saving a file, exporting to different formats
selection tools: marquee tools, lasso, magic wand, transform
editing tools: paint bucket, gradients, eraser
Photoshop: Layers and Masks
Then I move into the core filters as this is a fairly deep subject on its own: Blur, Render, Sharpen, Stylize
After this I like to work on bigger projects at various levels.
Depending on where the student is at and what type of Photo-shopper they want to become (Basics, intermediate or advanced).
I taught privately in the Summer; children from the age of 7-15 the basics of Photoshop. They create collages, edit their own photos and create their own works of art!

Art Theory

A compilation of my work was displayed (Art/photo) in an art Gallery in NY part of CCNY.

Aspergers

After graduating with a Masters Degree in Special Education, I worked for several agencies providing ABA therapy for children with Spectrum Disorder (Autism, PDD-NOS, and Aspergers) since 2006.

In this setting, I often work one to one with each child and in groups of 6 students. I help to develop programs that will enhance learning by breaking down skills into small steps and addressing various behaviors that may prevent optimum learning.

Dyslexia

After graduating with a Masters Degree in Special Education, I worked for several agencies providing ABA therapy for children with Spectrum Disorder (PDD-NOS, Autism, Aspergers), and teaching children with specific learning disabilities since 2006.

In this setting I often work one to one with each child and in groups of 6 students. I help to develop programs that will enhance learning by breaking down skills into small steps and addressing various behaviors that may prevent optimum learning.

I have over 10 years of experience teaching students with specific learning disabilities including ADD, ADHD and dyslexia.

Philosophy

I studied Philosophy in College and very interested in this subject. I have tutored this subject on a college level and would be happy to provide assistance to students of Philosophy or students who just need to grasp certain concepts to improve their grade in a Philosophy course.

Phonics

I have a Master's degree in Special Education, thus I have taught students with specific learning disabilities including ADD, ADHD and Dyslexia. In order to help in this subject my lessons would focus on: letter order, word analysis, and phonemic awareness.

Photography

I love digital and traditional photography. I have an Associates degree in Fine Arts with a concentration in Photography and a minor in Graphic Design. I have had photography shows, and have worked professionally in the field of Graphic Design/Photography.

Reading

I have ten years of experience tutoring/teaching the subject of reading.

Special Needs

I am a New York State certified Special Educator.

My Master's degree and certifications are in Special Education; B-2nd grade and grades 1-6.
I have worked in preschools, private agencies. I taught students with ADHD, ADD and Spectrum Disorder.

Study Skills

I have worked with children in special needs and in mainstream education. I have come across many students who didn't know how to study or were very disorganized with their work. As I have become more experienced working with various behavioral issues, I have also helped students correct poor study habits. I did this primarily building organization skills; making specific plans, adding more structure, visual aids, auditory aids, and providing schedules for the students.
Sometimes I had to extend this to the home either having meetings with parents occasionally, or if I was providing home therapy, often study skills could be improved by working with the family addressing structural needs for their child while they study and/or complete homework assignments.

Vocabulary

I have been tutoring and teaching students for over 10 years in the subject of reading. I have helped students improve: spelling, grammar, comprehension, and vocabulary. Within the subject of reading, my favorite subtopics are phonics and vocabulary.
