I’m Jacquelyn Roper

Founder of Academic Coach LLC.

As founder, my goal is to ensure your child does not fall behind. I am here to help your child build strategies that set them up for academic success, especially in foundational areas of reading, writing, and math.

I majored in Education in college and received my Master’s Degree in Language Arts. I’ve been in the education field for over 25 years. I am a former Chicago Public Schools teacher and hold a current IL teacher license. I come from a family of teachers, so education has always been a top priority. Not only have I taught students, I’ve trained teachers to help best support students in the classroom with whole and small groups. I believe in meeting the child where they are, learn their styles to personalize instruction that fits them, and teach strategies they can apply in and out of the classroom.

My primary focus is working with children to build Phonics and Foundational Skills, Reading, Writing, and Math.

I live with my husband and dog. We only go out for essentials and have on masks when leaving the house or around others. I love pets and am very comfortable around them, especially dogs.
