About Jeri

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.

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 taught multiple grade levels for over 30 years, including math, reading, social studies, science, handwriting, spelling and language arts. In that time I have had several student teachers who have gone on to successful careers.
My education includes a B.S. degree and an M.A. degree along with my teaching credentials for California and Washington.
I especially like to teach reading and math because it allows me to use a variety of strategies and methods to engage young students to be excited about learning.

Phonics

I have a Credential in Reading. This includes methodology in teaching phonics, digraphs and comprehension as well as decoding. I have taught reading for over 20 years from elementary to high school. Because of my instruction, students have raised their State test scores.

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!
