Tutor Personal Information

Name: Jacquelin P.

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have been a certified English Teacher, substitute and private tutor. I work as a private tutor, specializing in reading comprehension and writing strategies, phonics awareness and Verbal ISEE/ SAT test preparation. My for profit work allows me to run the social side of my business as I coordinate volunteers that help bring inner city students up to grade level on a volunteer basis.

I have a passion for literature and passion to teach students the strategies to visualize and read effectively. I have worked with the Lindamood-Bell Visual Processing programs with students with ADHD, dyslexia, processing issues and Autism.

I was always a visual and kinesthetic learner, so I incorporate creative activities into the hourly session in your home, school or local library. It doesn't matter if its Kindergarten reading intervention or 8th grade ISEE test practice.
