About Joleen

I currently have an Associate's Degree in Elementary Education and a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Special Education, certifying me to teach grades Pre-K through 4th. I currently teach Pre-K Counts at a Hazleton Area School District partner location. I have taught in all grades from preschool through middle school and have comprised many approaches to all subjects to teach students in a way that they will not only learn the matter but also enjoy learning. My lesson plans are creative, well thought out, and have elements that appeal to visual, auditory, and hands-on learners. In addition to teaching the subject, I also teach students how to learn - how to take notes, mnemonics, and other techniques to assist students with their studies.

I am incredibly reliable, have all my own supplies to assist with the subjects, and many resources (online, colleagues, and past/current professors) to confer with regarding all subject matter. With my background and education, I am very confident in my teaching/tutoring abilities. I will be an asset to anyone needing a tutor and will assist in helping students to achieve and excel in the subject matter I tutor them in.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an Associate Degree in Elementary Education with experience in Pre-K, kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, and 6th grade classrooms.

In Math for Elementary Students, I received an "A" and also have retained my course books for reference at all math taught in K-6.

In Reading, I was a Paraprofessional in Reading classes from K-8 and taught many lessons.

Special Needs

I am currently attending Southwestern College to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Special Education, which I will have in May 2013. I have prior experience as a Paraprofessional in an Autistic Support and Life Skills Classroom, as well as TSS experience.
