About Jody

I love reading and grammar!! I was that kid who loved diagramming sentences! I have taught in the classroom for 3 years in both resource/pull out settings and full inclusion. My Master's of Education has a specialty in Special Education. I love being able to find the way each student learns and helping each one progress. I have also taught GED English and am able to help your child learn to write an essay.

I love the way words are put together to form complete thoughts. Grammar and writing are huge in our daily lives -- they both carry over between subject areas.

I love working with elementary and intermediate grades. Students are always open to learning in a variety of ways and it is wonderful to help each one. I know the education standards for the State of Tennessee which will help you make sure your child is getting appropriate help.

I have taught resource in a pull out setting as well as full inclusion. I follow IEPs to the letter and always made sure my students' accommodations were being met. I believe that every child can learn no matter the challenge.

I am patient and care about my students. I want them to understand new things so they can perform well in class but, more importantly, so they feel good about themselves and can feel confident going to school.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a MEd in early childhood education (Pre-K - 3) along with being Highly Qualified through Praxis testing to teach any grade through 12th except art and music. I have experience teaching students of varying levels and teaching them to get to their grade level if they are behind. I like to use a variety of teaching methods and activities in order to be able to help individualize each lesson for each child.

Reading

I am certified in Pre-K through 12th with special education certification added on. I am considered highly qualified by the state of Tennessee.

Special Needs

In my experience as a Special Education Resource teacher, I knew and still know that all children can learn and succeed. Each child may learn in different ways but each child can learn. I like for children to feel confident in themselves and work towards that for each student.

I have taken Praxis tests to become Highly Qualified according to the state of Tennessee and I passed each exam on my first attempt. I have had resource classrooms in both K-5 and 5-6. They included pullout programs for K-5 and both inclusion and pullout in 5-6. I taught in these classrooms for two years. I am experienced at tailoring lessons toward each individual student's needs.

I have had several students increase reading comprehension levels three grade levels within a school year (according to state standardized tests).
