As an educator with over 14 years of experience in various capacities Gifted & Talented, Reading Specialist, ELL/ESL, SPED population (students who have Autism, ADD/ADHD, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia/Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and Specific Learning Disability), and teaching high school test preparation ACT, and GED courses). I bring a wealth of knowledge and creative strategies to ensure that all students are able to master requisite skills and knowledge to be successful in school in reading (phonics, comprehension, grammar) and math (including pre-algebra and algebra 1). I have worked in elementary through high school arenas facilitating students not only meeting but exceeding their goals.

I have worked with students in various capacities as both a teacher, interventionist, instructional coordinator to facilitate others acquiring the challenging skills of learning math through common core which is vastly different from what many parents were taught and exposed to. I have been on textbook adoption committees of large school districts to select what will help best address students needs all while conducting professional development to ensure teachers will have the skill sets needed to teach their students adequately. I have tutored for national companies and have helped many students achieve their academic math goals.

I am a Reading Specialist, Master Reading Teacher, National Certified Educational Diagnostician, a certified Dyslexia Specialist through Neuhaus in Houston, and have a Master's in Reading. All these credentials allow me to have at my disposal a wealth of resources in my toolbox to best help any child. I am always up to the latest cutting edge methods as well as able to create my own to ensure students possess what they need to be successful.

It is my objective to not only teach skills but incorporate real world application of those skills as students must learn to possess the critical thinking skills and processes to compete in the 21st century global society. Are you tired of seeing your child stru

Knowledgeable and Patient

Jade is always on time and prepared for the lesson. She was great at developing a rapport with my 5 year old and understanding his learning needs. Her learning plan is diverse and adaptable and most off all successful. I have seen his growth in just a few weeks.

A True Academic Professional

Jade was informative, timely, professional and welcoming. My daughter struggles in Reading from a Phonological Disorder, Specified Learning Disorder with Mild to Moderate Reading Impairment, and Attention Deficit Disorder. Jade was very patient, thorough, and positive! My daughter instantly felt comfortable with her and is excited for her next lesson.

ELA Expert

My son is in upper Middle School and still can not even write a sentence. After the first session, Jade increased my son's confidence in his desire to be a good writer. She has imparted her knowledge of tools and strategies for children with learning disabilities, with an understanding of the impact of a lack of organizational and executive functioning skills.

Game changer

“I really like Ms. Jade and I wish she was my real teacher” are the words of my 10 year old. Ms. Jade has turn my son’s academic progress around. He is more confident about his reading and math and that is because of her. she has also supported me with supplemental resources for my son for example links to websites were my son can practice the skills she is helping him with, books, worksheets and most of all she just talks to about his progress, I am never out of the loop. My son is always excited to see Ms. Jade. I am so glad we found her. Game changer!
