About Jerrica

Hey there, My name is Jerrica! I have worked for several years directly with kids/teens in many different settings, tutor/mentoring, summer camp counselor & director, after school programs, theater camps and now as a behavioral therapist. Because my life has been centered on working with students, I take every opportunity seriously and work tirelessly to make it fun and enjoyable so that the ultimate goal is self improvement of the students I work with. I have a wide range of subject areas that I feel confident enough to assist students in due to having several years of experience working in a mentor/tutoring setting. During my time as an afterschool program director, I was responsible for students K-5 and built a 30 min period of homework time before we did recreation/craft rotations by group. As a part of my job description, I was required to create and organize curriculum for each group based on age appropriateness in the areas of: Sports & Recreation, STEM, Arts & Crafts and Homework/Education. My favorite part of this was getting to find fun and creative was to apply subjects they were/had already touched on during their school day. I regularly volunteered in classrooms so that I was able to keep up to date with where they were in class.

I feel that I have a unique perspective as a tutor because of not only past experience, but also because of what I do now as a behavioral therapist (ABA techniques). I have a lot of patience and know various ways in order to increase compliance and motivation with students that I tutor based on things I have learned and applied through studying ABA. Coming from afterschool and summer camp settings with 150-300+ students and now working in a 1:1 setting as a therapist, I feel well prepared for just about anything that may come up or pose as a challenge for students that I work with.

I am only available evenings and weekends due to my full time job as a therapist.
Feel free to reach out if you're looking for someone creative and outgoing to work with your students! I appreciate and welcome any questions you may want to ask before you agree to set up a regular session, so please don't hesitate to contact me! Thanks so much for your time and your consideration and I look forward to possibly working with you and your family.

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.

Algebra 1

I was on the GT track in high school so I began my maths earlier on, with algebra being my most successful and most liked of these. I've maintained these skills through working as a student tutor/mentor through high school and then again once in college for middle school and high school level students.

Flute

Began playing flute in 6th grade and continued through college. Roughly about 10 years experience. UIL Region band qualifier 2/4 years.

Special Needs

I currently work as a behavioral therapist for kids with autism. My educational BA degree is for Psychology. I work with kids ages 2-17 on a day to day basis and who have various diagnoses falling on the ASD Spectrum. My clients who fall on the spectrum range from severe deficits in adaptive behaviors (hygeine, dietary, etc.) to minor deficits in social aspects so I have experience with most.

Study Skills

I currently work as a behavioral therapist for kids with autism. My educational BA degree is for Psychology. I work with kids ages 2-17 on a day to day basis and who have various diagnoses falling on the ASD Spectrum. Most students with ASD have some trouble with attention and focus on academic subjects so I often design study plans for them in order to succeed.
