Is Your Kid Ready For The JUMP.
Avg response < 14 hrs
Hello! My name is Brandi, also known as The Literacy Acrobat. I am a primary special education teacher. If you're a parent to a kindergartner, first- or second-grader, the jump is coming. It's a crucial change in academic expectations that happens in third grade. This is when students move from learning to read, to reading to learn. They are no longer taught letter sounds and decoding at this stage, but are expected to read proficiently enough to use their skills to independently access content and answer higher-level questions about the reading. That's the jump. As a CPS teacher, I work with grades K-3, but if your son or daughter is older than that and still struggling, it's not too late! I am passionate about getting all my students up to grade level and beyond. I come with my own materials: hands-on activities, worksheets and leveled books you get to keep, and even progress monitoring so you can see your child's growth! This is a labor of love.
Cate D.|Chicago, IL
$30-45/hr • 10 yrs exp • 32 yrs old
ISBE Licensed Reading Specialist
I am a licensed reading specialist with my M. A. degree from National Louis University. Previously, I was a high school social sciences teacher. As a reading specialist I've worked with both gifted elementary students and with students who are struggling readers. As a reading specialist I am trained to diagnose specific areas of difficulty within reading and work with those students to improve those skills and all around literacy. I use manipulative, writing, discussion and leveled readers, as most elementary schools use for progress monitoring. For older children, I use the Jerry J. BRI for initial diagnosis. I believe families are an intricate part of student success, as they can help to support the child at home as well. My tutoring sessions are in 30 minute increments, preferably several times a week for a child. I will provide data graphs of student performance, as well as a final written report following completion of all tutoring. Best, Cate

I have an especially strong background in subjects related to these two. In High School, I helped start my club in my Sophomore year, where I regularly helped younger peers who were learning how to code or work with computers. I was also a Senior Varsity Co-Captain of my Debate Team, where I would help lead the younger debaters, in addition to competing at tournaments on weekends. In school, I was in primarily AP and Honors classes for all four years of High School. The AP classes I've taken are: Physics 1&2, Physics C, Calculus BC, Language and Composition, Computer Science, Statistics, Macroeconomics, and Human Geography. As for my test scores, I have a 1580 on the test, which equates to a 35/36 on the test. I look forward to working with you!
Alexandra F.|Chicago, IL
$15-30/hr • 2 yrs exp • 25 yrs old
Part-Time Tutor Available
Avg response < 12 hrs
My name is Alexandra and I am a recent graduate from Illinois Wesleyan University. Currently, I am a Pediatric Behavioral Therapist where I work with children who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Additionally, I am a full-time graduate student earning my master's degree in Applied Behavior Analysis. As a therapist, one of the skills I work on with some of my clients is functional learning. For several of my clients, mainstream schooling has becoming aversive for them. So, I work on incorporating a lot of positive reinforcement so that there is more motivation to do well in school. For most of the students I have come across, the issue is not their ability to learn; it's their ability to learn the way our society has decided they should learn. I believe the weight of the responsibility is on the instructor, not the learner. It is my goal to help my clients find what works best for them so that they have the opportunity to be as successful as they decide to be.
