Alex is a great tutor! She has worked with my daughter twice so far and I can already see the difference. Her attitude about math is more positive and she came home with an A on her last test.
I have a good understanding of how students struggle because I was always struggling in school until I discovered I am dyslexic and had to learn to look at things differently. Now, I know some quick tips to help people who have difficulty reading and comprehending. Also, my older son was very intelligent with a high IQ, but didn't do well in school because of his AD HD. Once we changed his diet and gave him more suitable material to study, he improved greatly. I am able to see past the AD HD of a student and move them to a good space in their self-confidence which helps the learning process.
Results! I usually work myself out of a job, and that is a good thing! Success is what we want!
I have a lifelong enthusiasm for learning and try to instill that joy in students. I am a substitute teacher during the year, and have experience with contained classroom and resource students as well as general education classes. I meet in a neutral location, free of noise and distractions, preferably a public library for tutoring sessions. Though not required, I prefer to meet with parents and students (at no cost) before our first lesson. I provide feedback after each lesson and encourage ongoing communication to maximize each student's tutoring experience. I tutor all subjects except for higher level math.
I am a certified English teacher who also has a national teaching license. I can provide tutoring services in any English-related content.
I enjoy helping my customers improve their reading and writing abilities. I also enjoy providing customers with great contents for their blogs, websites and other related needs.
I, Jackie, believe that every kid has a chance and will succeed. That is why I am offering to tutor in helping with reading and math (i.e., geometry, algebra, basic, and even probability).
