Jessica B. of Lafayette OR USA Tutor Profile
Tutor Personal Information
Hello! Welcome to my profile. My skills and experience cover a broad spectrum from the college prep level to special education and quite a bit in between. My first tutoring experiences were at a boarding school in Arizona where I tutored in Spanish, Latin, English, writing, humanities, reading, SAT prep and study skills. During that time I also ran a children's choir and participated in outdoor leadership which allowed me to introduce the outdoors and survival skills to children ranging in age from 10-18 years old. Next, I tutored around the San Francisco Bay Area in English, writing, reading, reading comprehension, biology, and study skills before relocating to the beautiful state of Oregon. Currently, I am working as a Special Education assistant teaching Kindergarten through 5th grade students mathematics, writing, reading, and reading comprehension. I have worked with students who have learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADHD, ADD, visual processing deficits, audio processing deficits, and autism.
When I tutor a student my goal is not only to help them in a difficult subject, but to teach in such a way that it fosters independence, self motivation, resourcefulness, and self advocacy both inside the classroom and out. I don't believe in trying to explain a concept repeatedly in the same way if the student isn't understanding the concept. I adapt my tutoring to the student's learning style and am willing to explain concepts in a variety of ways until the student is able to grasp the concept. I am patient and committed to helping the people I tutor achieve success.
