About Jessie

Hello! As a special education teacher, I am uniquely qualified to create an academic plans for the specific needs and interests of my students. I am able to pinpoint misunderstandings and create an appropriate learning track in order to help them achieve their goals.

In my practice, I use research-based strategies to expedite learning. My love of teaching stems from watching my students succeed and become independent in their learning.

I am available nights and weekends to tutor online or in person. I would be happy to provide strategies, practice, and support for parents to continue to help their kids at home as well, just let me know!

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.

Common Core

Common core is not a subject area, but all standards students must achieve in order to be college ready. I understand the standards and teach them on a daily basis at multiple levels. I currently hold a teaching certificate from the state of Washington.

Phonics

I currently hold a teaching certificate from the state of Washington. I teach phonics in the elementary grades. Students must learn to read so they can read to learn. High yield strategies in phonics instruction include using patterns, repetition, word families, and multiple means of representation to get students reading.

Special Needs

I currently hold a teaching certificate from the state of Washington, qualifying me to teach special education from grades kindergarten through twelfth grade. This is my third year teaching special education and have received outstanding reviews and evaluations from my principal which are available upon request. I received my B.S. in integrated teaching including elementary and special education in May of 2014. I write, teach, and case manage IEPs on a daily basis and understand the impacts of special needs on academic achievement as well as how to teach to the specific needs a student has. Methods and lessons depend on the student's level and needs, which ensure appropriate teaching.

Study Skills

Study skills and learning strategies need to be taught explicitly to students with disabilities and non-disabled students who struggle with sequencing and order. I teach study skills and learning strategies as a part of my special education program.
