About Jayden

Hello! My name is Jayden. I am a licensed English teacher with experiences in a wide variety of classrooms and two years of private tutoring. In my free time, I practice karate, hang out with horses, and go hiking with my dogs.

I am focused and professional with a true passion for tutoring individual students to find and fill their specific, academic needs. I take pride in finding creative ways to lead my students to meaning and understanding. As a tutor I have worked with all levels of students, from kindergarten through GED. While English is my specialty, I have taught middle school science and tutored arithmetic, algebra, science, history, and test-taking skills.

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.

ACT English

I am a certified English teacher with experience teaching at both the middle school and high school level. In addition to being a strong test taker myself, I have tutored students for a variety of tests. I focus not only on the content necessary for the test, but also help the student understand how to read test questions and identify the skill being assessed.

Algebra 1

As a peer tutor in middle and high school, algebra was what most students needed help with. I find algebra incredibly fun; it is like a puzzle just asking to be solved.

Chemistry

Chemistry is my favorite science. The concepts are so fascinating to me that I tend to get over enthusiastic when explaining. I have informally tutored it in both high school and collage. Also, as an algebra tutor, I am very comfortable helping those struggling with the math portion.

Elementary Math

While English is my specialty, math is dear to my heart. I enjoy bringing real life examples and common sense to help connect math to a young student's life.

Elementary Science

I love the creative thoughts science creates in children's minds. Elementary science is heavily dependent upon nonfiction reading skills, so my experience as an English teacher is key. In addition, I have taught science at the middle school level and enjoy bringing science experiments to life.

Writing the essay is a challenge that becomes more exciting once you see it from the right perspective.

Vocabulary

I am a certified English teacher with experience teaching at both the middle school and high school level. I have worked in classrooms with students as young as kindergarten and with adults who have spent many years in the workplace. Vocabulary and word-study works best in context and with purpose, so I spend time with my students upfront to determine the most engaging strategies to make learning fun!
