I have just retired as a teacher in Southern California. During that time I taught middle school and high school subjects, Reading, Math, and Home Economics. I love working with children on an individual basis to improve their skills and have that "light bulb moment". There is nothing more satisfying that a student saying "I get it now!"

I have just retired as a teacher in Southern California. During that time I taught middle school and high school subjects, Reading, Math, and Home Economics. I love working with children on an individual basis to improve their skills and have that "light bulb moment". There is nothing more satisfying that a student saying "I get it now!"

Multiple teaching methods that I use have allowed students that would not be able to understand one way to understand another. Children need to be taught so that THEY can understand what is being taught, and sometimes their own teacher doesn't present the lesson the way they learn.

Because I am retired, I am available at times when others are not. I am fully credentialed in California and Washington and have experience working with Special Education students.

Wonderful

Jeri was patient and did well with my son, even pointed out a few things that were "light bulb" moments for us at parents. I would recommend!

Shelby, 1 lesson with Jeri

Jeri is very patient and knowledgeable.

Jeri helped my 8 year old with reading. She gave him some great ideas for helping him with learning.
