About Jacole

Social Studies doesn't have to be boring! I utilize a variety of teaching methods to help students understand Social Studies and hopefully make it interesting. Technology today brings the past to life which helps every type of learner. My goal is to help my students figure out what learning style works best for them and to teach test taking skills. Many times students are not taught how to be successful test takers and they become overwhelmed and freeze when they do know the answers!

I have been teaching for 16 years and am certified in Special Education grades k-12 and Social Studies grades 7-12; I also have a Master's in Literacy. I currently teach 11th and 12th grade Social Studies and run an Autistic Social Skills group for the district that I work.

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 have had a number of students in my classes who have been diagnosed as having Aspergers. I determine the best way to reach them academically in a regular class. I also work on social skills in and outside of the classroom. The goal is to keep stress level down in order to be successful.

Autism

I have been trained utilizing the Teacch Method and have worked with a variety of students diagnosed as having ASD. I have created materials from scratch to help students convey messages if they are non-verbal. I have also used social stories to help students become socially more appropriate. I also run an Autistic Social Skills group that deals with real life field trips that incorporate real life skills.

Dyslexia

I have been working with students that have dyslexia and other learning disabilities. I will encourage students to use a note card to help them guide what they are reading. I will also use different color font or markers on the board to help them focus on certain letters or words. I will also be sure to check that they have written down homework or notes correctly. Students also have access to technology to help with writing skills and note-taking. Utilize graphic organizers to help organize note-taking and utilize videos to help reinforce content.

For younger students, I have incorporated shaving cream on plates or sand to bring other senses.

Social Studies

I have been teaching 9-12th grade Social Studies for 16 years. I also have been tutoring the subject one-on-one for the past 15 years. I currently have permanent certification in Social Studies for grades 7-12.
