About Jessica

All children can learn, no matter what challenges they may have. I truly believe that. It is true that some children need a little more help than others and that is where I can help.

I have been an elementary school teacher for 9 years, and can't think of doing anything else. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Elementary Reading & Literacy. I am licensed as a Prek-6th grade teacher and Reading Specialist. I have taught Kindergarten-3rd grade and 6th grade as well as Reading.

I'm happy to talk with you about your child's needs and how we can help them be a lifelong learner.

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 have a Bachelor's degree Elementary Education. I have taught elementary school for 8 years. I have taught kindergarten-3rd grade and 6th grade.

Handwriting

As a reading specialist, I have studied the best methods for handwriting instruction. I know that students need instruction in letter formation and practice using different methods- both hands on and your ordinary practice with worksheet type materials.

Phonics

I am qualified to tutor in phonics because, as a primary grades teacher, I have often used phonics in my teaching. For some students this is a very helpful way for them to learn how to read. They can often benefit from sort words, finding patterns in words, and using the sounds in words.

Praxis

As a certified teacher, I have had to take many of the Praxis tests - Reading, Writing, Math. I also had to take the Praxis for Elementary Education. I passed all of these with high scores on my first time taking them.

SOL

As a reading specialist, I have access to many state approved SOL preparation materials. I have 10+ years preparing students for standardized tests.

Study Skills

I have had a lot of experience using study skills. Personally, as a teacher, I have had to take many exams to qualify me as a teacher and Reading Specialist. Therefore, I've learned many things on my own. I have also had experience teaching students how to take tests. I work with 3rd and 4th graders at my school on how to take tests, choose correct answers, and keep their stamina up.

Great Tutor! — I have a 5th grade boy who needed some help on writing. After just a handful of classes, I can see his interest and confidence in writing has increased.
