    The resume is pretty good, but honestly I noticed quite a few typos/grammatical mistakes that you should fix before you send it out. You may want a second party to read the resume for errors, sometimes it's hard to proofread your own work. Your resume really needs to be error free, especially with your background.

    For example, from just one of the points on your resume.

    English learners students? (just English learners, or English students, not both)

    identify and analyze and solve? (identify, analyze and solve)

    data or available information gather from? (gatherED from)

    re: Provide one on one tutoring services to English learners students while working with a group of experts to identify and analyze and solve issues based on the data or available information gather from the service provided.

    Only address this if it is brought up to you. As long as your resume shows some stability - or more than a year - at your listed jobs I believe you will be fine. Placing it on your cover letter could be a negative for you as it appears to be an excuse. Being a person who looks and evaluates resumes at my post, when I look at a cover letter and it has what appears to be an excuse I tend to place them in the "Do not Call" pile. Without mentioning it and looking over the jobs and length of time at each I normally broach the subject of longevity during the interview. This is where people have further explained the job hopper like status listed on their resume. I have personally hired most of the applicants that fit what your resume sounds like due to the legitimate reasons that you have listed for leaving jobs. One can not fault "Life" for happening, no matter the reason.
