About Jacinda

I have had the privilege to teach now for eighteen years. Three years were in Kindergarten, one in third grade, and fourteen years is second grade. I have a Masters of Education degree with a specialty in Literacy. Thus, I am a certified Reading Specialist.

I do a lot of after school tutoring with small groups of students from my own class, thus I am familiar with how to help children improve in Reading and Math, especially in grades Kindergarten through third grade. Tutoring allows me to get to know my students better and help teach toward their individual needs and personalities. I really enjoy it.

With my experience in teaching conceptual-based math, I've developed an understanding of how kids develop number sense and math skills. This allows me to target what children need and the holes that need filling.

I am a certified Reading Specialist. My strength is teaching in grades Kindergarten through third grade. I know that each component in reading is just as important as the other, and there is a progression to learning each.

I have taught for eighteen years, and I can teach reading, math, handwriting, and writing all at the elementary level.

After phonemic awareness, phonics is the foundation for reading. This must be developed in order for other success in reading and in order to reach the goal of all reading-comprehension. I can help develop this foundation.

Please contact me to learn more and schedule lessons.

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 am a certified teacher in 2nd grade. I have taught for 18 years in the Eagle Mt.-Saginaw ISD. This includes three years in Kindergarten, one in third grade, and fourteen in second grade.

Handwriting

I am familiar with Handwriting without Tears. I teach handwriting to my students, as well, including correct pencil grip which affects many things with handwriting. I also teach cursive and how to correctly form the letters.

Phonics

I am a certified reading specialist, and this includes extensive knowledge regarding phonemic awareness as the basis for phonics and phonics itself. I am familiar with all of the elements of phonics including blends, vowels, digraphs and diphthongs. This helps provide a foundation for beginning to learn to read independently.
