About Jaron

It is with great anticipation that I am applying to become your tutor. I have completed all course requirements to earn a Master's of Education degree in School Administration with principal certification as well as a social studies certification from the California University of Pennsylvania. I have more than six years of teaching experience within two different states as well as two years of experience in an administrative role. I am confident that I posses the qualities and the knowledge that will provide students with the necessary tools to understand some of the difficult concepts associated with history and how to tie those concepts into their day-to-day lives.

I have served in numerous roles within my districts. First and foremost, I teach social studies (USI and USII). I am also certified as an E-Academy teacher, a member of the curriculum planning committee, and served as the Dean of Students at my current place of employment. Working with the administration has provided me with a wealth of experience in dealing with parents, disciplinary issues, scheduling conflicts, student, as well as teacher concerns, curriculum, and administrative decisions that affect the school. This opportunity has helped me develop the organizational, communicative, interpersonal, and leadership skills that are necessary to promote the instructional goals of the district.

As a teacher, I have been successful on many fronts. My passing rate over the last four years has been around/above 90% as I strive to provide the information to the students in “real” terms that they understand. In Virginia, all of my students passed the state's World History exam while 85% passed the geography exam. I try to differentiate instruction in my class to break up the monotony of classwork, by providing research activities and projects while discussing main points of the class, the students have a better understanding of the information presented.

I have a proven track record of success and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to help out any struggling student. Thank you!

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.

Baseball

I spent two years as an assistant coach at Thomas Jefferson High School before moving to Virginia. In Virginia, I was selected as the head baseball coach. I spent two years in Virginia as the head baseball coach where we improved the team to have the best two years out of the previous ten. I currently am not coach but still actively participate in an adult wooden bat league and will be participating as a parent volunteer on my son's t-ball team.

Religion

I spent two years teaching World Religions as an elective. The class consisted of teaching the five common religions of the world: Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, and Hindu. I also taught about some of the more prominent secondary religions throughout the United States and the world.

Social Studies

I have been a teacher in social studies within two states. I have taught World History under the pressures of the SOL exam in Florida (comparable to the proposed Keystone exams in PA), in which my students received a 100% passing rate. I have also taught World Geography and Sociology in Virginia. At my current employer, I am teaching USI and USII classes covering the formation of the Constitution through present day. I have also taught a Pop Culture class and a World Religion class. I am certified in both the state of Virginia and Pennsylvania in Social Studies.
