Jasper tutoring 1.6 - 7, 8, 9, 12, 13 - 4/10 didn’t look for lcm, 14 1.3 - 1 yes 3 no 6something 5 yes 8 9 Hi, my name is Synthia! I am currently a middle school special education teacher. I have always loved working with children. My first job was as a mother’s helper at 12 years old. Ever since, every job I’ve held has revolved around children. I’ve babysat, worked in a daycare, been an assistant dance teacher, a tennis coach, babysitter, nanny, and now an educator. I have a bachelors degree in STEM education and a masters degree in Special Education. I’ve worked with children from infancy to 14 years of age. I believe in building a strong rapport with families. Every job I’ve had, I’ve left feeling like I gained another family. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, reading, Read more working out, and cooking! I recently graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition. If healthy meals are important to you and your children, I would love to explore fun and healthy options with your children! I look forward to speaking with you, if you feel like I might be a good fit for your family. Stay well, Synthia
