About Jacqueline


Bio

My greatest reward is to see the "light bulb," the "now I understand," look. During my years as a student, at all levels, I helped my fellow students. Some told me that I could explain better than the teacher. I worked for GTE for many years and learned useful practical applications for my knowledge. My math skills helped me change the order of calculations in a computer program so that it did not overflow the memory of the old machine that was not nearly as powerful as the ones...

My greatest reward is to see the "light bulb," the "now I understand," look. During my years as a student, at all levels, I helped my fellow students. Some told me that I could explain better than the teacher. I worked for GTE for many years and learned useful practical applications for my knowledge. My math skills helped me change the order of calculations in a computer program so that it did not overflow the memory of the old machine that was not nearly as powerful as the ones today.

During the last 10 years, I was a substitute teacher for LISD. The students with which I worked were in middle and high school. The subjects were many but I most enjoyed working in Math classes for all ages. I volunteer to tutor GED students and have worked with 5 groups, so far. While working on my masters in math, I taught college algebra and tutored any students that asked. I finished my degree work in 1975. Last summer, I worked with two middle school students. We worked through several old STAAR tests so that they learned test taking strategy and faster methods to do minimal calculations by hand, not using a calculator. They learned logic and elimination.

In Illinois, I taught middle school math for a year. If the students learned half as much as I did, it would have been great.

My approach is to meet every student wherever they are on the learning curve and proceed from there. I am a visual person and use a lot of scratch paper. Many times, an illustration helps both of us.

The sixth grade student with whom I am working has been doing Algebra, proportions, and percents. I did not see that material till 8th or 9th grade.

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

The majority of my tutor opportunities have used many Algebra 1 and Algebra 2 skills. I have a copy of Algebra study notes from LISD.
Algebra 2,

Algebra 2

I am currently working with a student who is taking business calculus. I help by making sure the results are reasonable and follow algebraic laws. Values cannot be combined unless the base numbers are the same.

I have a masters in math from 1975. During my 10 years of tutoring, I have tutored middle school and high school geometry several times. I tutored one student during his entire year taking geometry. I have a formula sheet from his business calculus book that has area and volume formulae. While teaching middle school math in Illinois, I taught transformational geometry to 7th grade students.

I am not certified to teach reading. I do not know if the student is learning phonetically or visually. I am willing to do the best I can, but Math is my strong suit.

Patient Help with Algebra

Jacqueline was awesome, she was prompt and got down to business right away! She went the extra mile and explained in detail until I got it! She has a lot patience and did not mind repeating herself, as I am a very slow learner.

VILMA, 1 lesson with Jacqueline

knowledgeable and patient

Miss Jacqueline is very patient with my daughter and take her time time to explain Geometry. My was having problem with geometry but now she is happy.
