I am a private tutor with an extensive background in early literacy intervention 
and education. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Child Development, and a 
Master's Degree in Education, and over 10 years experience working in the 
classroom and other educational settings. I also work as the director of a 
youth library, and have a personal passion for children's literature. I am 
currently offering a sliding scale for my private tutoring services, $45-$55/hr, 
and have many open slots as the school year gets underway. I specialize in 
helping children of all ages (Elementary through High School) with writing, 
reading comprehension, study skills, and general homework assistance. My 
approach is gentle and co-creative with the student. I'd be happy to meet and 
discuss a plan for your child. I live in Elmwood/Rockridge, but can travel to 
any part of the Bay Area.

I have worked as an educator for six years, with experience
in inquiry-based design-thinking curriculum and alternative
teaching models. I combine a background in environmental
education with rigorous academic experience in a range of
subjects and age groups. I have studied and taught
everything from poetry, to forest ecology, to nonviolent
communication. I love to work with students across a wide
range of learning styles, as we collaborate to create
practices that are most engaging for the individual student.
I focus on taking time to develop a robust and enjoyable
learning relationship. I support students as they build a
strong relationship with self-directed study and with their
own curiosities and capacities. We create passion for
learning and content that improves performance. I work
across a range of subjects and projects, adding in support
for study skills.

I am new to Berkeley. Please feel free to contact me with
questions and opportunities.

in a child's development.  I have worked with so many children who are diverse in 
terms of language background, learning styles, racial identity or physical 
disabilities.  I work with 4th graders full time and I, also, hope to partner with 
your family to provide any of the following supports:

*Reading and writing development
*Parenting consultation 
*Riding a bicycle 
*Mathematics 
*Behavior supports and learning with Austism Spectrum
*English as a second language 

My most recent background includes:  Master in Arts in Education from UC 
Berkeley, Learning Lab training and implementation for Balanced Literacy 
development, Mathematics Lead teacher for 4th and 5th graders in San Francisco 
Unified District, Learning assistance for elementary students with Autism 
Spectrum Disorder.  My resume is available upon request and I look forward to 
discussing our options at your convenience.

Are you in need of a tutor who can help your child with all 
their school needs - from improving grade scores to getting 
more organized or prepared for tests? Would you like an 
experienced teacher that has also tutored and enjoys even 
the tough subjects? Then I may be your gal. I have B.S. in 
Biology and enjoy learning and passing along my excitement 
for both math and science. I'm animated and have a sense of 
humor which helps kids have fun without even knowing it and 
I connect easily on their level. And most importantly, can 
build their self-confidence and ?can-do? attitude. I can 
teach kids how to get good grades and instill self-
discipline. I'm equally well versed in other subjects as 
well. In addition, I offer services for summer break to keep 
skills sharp. If that sounds like something your family 
needs, please contact me at JessSund@gmail.com

Greetings BPN!
After 7 years building a successful tutoring practice in San Francisco, I am 
shunning that lovely new bridge in favor of being close to my own kids while 
serving students in the East Bay, starting in June 2014!
4-10th Grade 
Child-centered holistic help for all-kinds of students. I've been helpful to many 
with Executive Function/ADHD struggles, especially in combination with dyslexia, 
dysgraphia, dyscalculia, Vis/Aud Processing struggles, etc. Is your child seen as 
precocious? Sullen? Oppositional? Unfocused? Does she feel misunderstood and 
have zero motivation? I'd love to meet you both to see what we can do to 
improve writing, math, organization, self-advocacy skills, and the experience of 
school on a day to day basis!
