Writing

Writing

College application essays: I enjoy working with students to write their college application essays because it allows us to discuss not only the direct answer to the essay question, but also the best ways to convey their personalities. My goal is to keep the student's voice and intention at the center of the essay as I help them achieve their goals more effectively. School Essays: I work with students of all ages from grades 5 - college level on their writing skills. All aspects of the writing process are important and I strive to help my students determine how to navigate each step in the ways most useful to them. Some of the specific aspects of writing I often focus on with my students include structure, word choice, logical connections, and nuanced argumentation. Personal writing: I have worked within several writers' groups to help adults and older teens write and edit a variety of genres including mystery, memoir, poetry, and creative nonfiction.

Algebra 1

Algebra is one of the subjects I have tutored the most in my lifetime as a professional tutor, a classroom teacher (not teaching math), and a student tutor. During the 2015/16 school year, I taught the whole course of Algebra I to a homeschool student. My goal with my Algebra I students is to help them find the patterns when possible and to help them retain this vital material in order to create a solid foundation for their coming math education.

I have helped students in algebra, geometry, and both ACT and SAT math for over three years. My focus is always on solidifying content knowledge so students may build on the foundations of their strengths. By solidifying the conceptual basis of their knowledge, my students are then more flexible in their thinking and able to apply what they know to the test questions, even when the wording or task differs from the average textbook question.

Patient and Helpful

Jayden is a really helpful tutor because when you don't know something he tells you guidelines instead of just telling you the answer, He always makes sure that you know the information and gives you homework to review what we have done in the class, he is patient and doesn't rush you on anything so it is easier to learn. Overall Jayden is a great tutor to have even though it was only my first lesson

Rika, 14 lessons with Jayden

I was impressed with his understanding of what I was looking for in a tutor and his knowledge of my particular problem areas of writing.

He was very patient and was a good listener in our get-acquainted fist session. He has a good understanding of the areas I need help with and assured me that we would start attacking these areas in the next session. I also liked that he gave me some very constructive "homework" to do before our next session. I feel that we are closer to being on the same page than I thought we would be after the first session. I like Jayden and feel comfortable with the direction we are taking.
