I believe that what sets me apart is my commitment to approaching my students as individuals and learning about them in order to serve them best. I have 10 years of experience teaching in public schools serving diverse populations of students.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education from Dallas Baptist University and a Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Texas at Arlington.
I have taught Chemistry, Pre-AP Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, 8th grade science and Astronomy. I have worked in Cedar Hill ISD, Red Oak ISD, Grand Prairie ISD and Arlington ISD.
I am currently working as a Science Instructional Specialist helping teachers implement best practices in the classroom and writing science curriculum.
I LOVED being a teacher! This year is my first year working as an administrator and I miss teaching students! I really enjoy building relationships, helping students feel confident in the work they are doing, and to realize their own potential.
I’ve always been on my own pace of learning, which makes it hard when I’m in the classroom learning from a curriculum that’s isn’t specifically paced for me. Having the opportunity to be tutored by Mrs Grimaldo made my experience with learning so favorable! I felt comfortable enough to make questions and even found myself interested in learning topics beyond what was expected from me. Well, I even applied it beyond in my everyday experiences. I definitely recommend!
I would highly recommend J. Grimaldo as a tutor, she really took the time to ensure that I could comprehend what she was teaching. She has always been the best at explaining things that made it exciting to learn! Couldn’t recommend a better tutor!
She is so patient and has such a kind attitude! I felt like she really cared about not only my personal progress but my mental headspace.
Everything was explained in an easy to understand way. Any questions I had were always answered in depth. An absolutely amazing tutor! I highly recommend her :-)
I begin by asking questions to gain an understanding of how the student learns, their experience with the content and what their personal goals are.
I really aim to develop capacity within the student to apply strategies that will serve them presently and in the future.
