Teacher/Tutor with M.Ed and virtual learning/technology specialization offering K-12 tutoring after school

Methodology

I firmly believe in student centered learning and development of independent problem solving methods. I teach with real world application and 21st century skills as a focus. Education is forever changing and educators must be able to meet students with the demands of our current learning environment.

Background

December 1st, 2020

Dear Family,

My name is Jim Myers and I am a Pennsylvania state certified teacher currently looking for opportunities as a tutor. I am an alumnus from Downingtown East High School, Lionville Middle School and Pickering Valley Elementary. I graduated from Temple University in 2015 with a finance degree and began my career in Chicago, IL. I worked as a financial analyst in my first role then took a position in King of Prussia, PA where performed financial analysis and decision support for hospital systems.
In 2018 I made the decision to change my career and enrolled in Temple University's Graduate Education program. I spent time student teaching in Downingtown West High School's business department during my required field experience. Next, I graduated with a 4.0 in 2019 and immediately began teaching (K-4) Technology in Exton, PA. I most recently served as instructional technology coordinator and a business/technology teacher at a private academy near Philadelphia.
I am currently looking for a full-time teaching role closer to the Chester Springs. I am interested in any teaching or tutoring opportunities in the interim. I hold PA certifications (K-12) in: 1) Business, Computers & Information Technology, 2) Technology Education, 3) Marketing Education and 4) Library Science. I am also a Level 2 Google Certified Educator. My goal is to help your student or group navigate a challenging virtual environment while providing additional instruction and a more individualized learning experience. I am also available for test prep and specific subjects for high school students.
Any certifications or clearances are available upon request. I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child learn and excel.
Sincerely,
Jim
