About Jordan

With more than five years worth of tutoring experience, I offer writing, reading, and digital technology expertise for tutees of any level. Overall, my goal is to help all tutees become independent, life-long learners who excel when life demands a strong command of the English language.

Because I am both a professor and tutor in college settings, my skills are specialized to college-level literacy skills. Any traditional or returning adult student in college would therefore benefit from my deep knowledge of relevant academic demands. Moreover, juniors and seniors in high school would certainly benefit from my insights into college preparedness and success.

This deep knowledge of writing, reading, and grammar would also benefit younger students who are just starting to learn about the language or who are struggling to keep up with classmates in their English classes. With an MA and BA in English, I can easily elucidate both basic and advanced rules of grammar for tutees of all ages. By clearly defining and exemplifying even the most bewildering tricks of language, I dispel fear and promote confidence.

As a digital native, I can also help tutees gain confidence when using computers and standard word-processing programs. Though such digital technologies can often be quite confusing, I simplify and demystify the inner workings of today's most important literacy tools.

If developing life-long literacy skills and gaining confidence when reading, writing, and using digital technologies sounds appealing, please consider getting in contact with me about tutoring services.

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.

English

I have an MA and a BA in English from an accredited university. In addition, I currently teach college-level English classes and tutor at a community college, and have done so for five years. I also read and write for fun, thereby honing my skills with the language.

ESL/ESOL

I teach and tutor at community colleges with diverse populations. As a result, ESL teaching is essential to my professional success. In addition, I have studied ESL theory explicitly through professional development training and personal research.

General Computer

People of my generation are considered to be the first digital natives. Ever since I can remember, a computer has been in my home and I have been using it. With personal hobbies of building computers and programming, and the previously mentioned long-term relationship with computers, I am more than qualified to tutor general computer skills.

General Music

I was in band from 4th grade through the end of high school, selected for leadership roles throughout those years, and viewed as a resource for other musicians. I also started college as a music major and progressed through first year music theory. Since then, I have maintained my interest in music through several other instruments (piano and guitar, mainly, in addition to my primary instrument of trumpet).

Microsoft Word

I use MS Word extensively to teach and to tutor. Track changes and comments are essential to my teaching methods as a professor and required when tutoring college students online. In addition, I use MS Word for personal writing projects and have done so for at least 15 years, so I've grown alongside each new version of Word (including the latest).

Trumpet

I started playing trumpet in 4th grade and started college as a music major. I was in band from 4th grade through the end of high school, selected for leadership roles throughout those years, and viewed as a resource for other musicians. Though I changed to a writing major, I still play trumpet and several other instruments. This is a difficult instrument to master, and I have attempted to maintain my chops over the years.
