With over 600 hours of tutoring experience separate from my WyzAnt hours, I've helped students of all ages and abilities. As an internationally certified tutor through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), I'm proud to say that all of my students have successfully passed their courses and improved their grades. My passion for teaching began when I was hired by a local community college to tutor. In less than a year, I became a tutor facilitator (tutoring small groups), and a tutor trainer.
Helping students to learn and build confidence is my passion. I understand that everyone learns at a different pace, and adapt tutoring sessions to each student's learning style. Spanish is my second language, and I understand the frustrations that come with learning a new language. My enthusiastic and interactive teaching style engages students and encourages them to actively participate in learning. I'm patient, mindful, and make learning fun. I help students organize, prepare for tests and stay on track of assigned schoolwork.
I honorably served 5 years active duty and 3 years reserve in the United States Marine Corps. I hold myself to a high standard, and for that reason, I often ask for feedback to ensure my students are satisfied. I will never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. I'm extremely flexible with tutoring locations, times and cancellations. I offer discounted rates for multiple hour sessions, reduced travel and returning students.
To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I reserve a private study room at the public library where I teach private lessons and small group classes. I'm happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient for the student.

Jennifer worked with my high school age daughter for a semester. Her grades greatly improved. Jennifer is a gifted instructor. She is very friendly and personable and that helps to create a positive and productive learning environment. She really helped with my daughter's English class, especially the essays. She is also good with helping kids learn study skills, and is a very focused and hard working tutor. You will be getting the bargain of your life as Jennifer is one of the most over-qualified tutors you will ever find. Take advantage of this opportunity before she finishes school herself!
Working with Jennifer on preparing for the ASVAB test was very beneficial. Jennifer provided very skilled and pertinent instruction in the areas of math knowledge, arithmetic reasoning, word knowledge, and paragraph comprehension with most of our efforts directed towards arithmetic reasoning and math knowledge. With her help, I was able to successfully pass those areas of the ASVAB. Jennifer was extremely patient with me and constantly gave feedback that helped keep me motivated to do better. The fact that Jennifer is a Marine veteran contributes to the tutoring sessions as she is a constant reminder to what joining the military is all about. Certainly helps in keeping you motivated.
I can highly recommend Jennifer to anyone that is seeking a tutor to help them get ready for taking the ASVAB.
My son went from several Ds and Fs to passing everything! All in a couple of months too. His teachers noticed a difference right away.
Jen is punctual, always prepared, and has a high level of professionalism. I appreciate the time she puts in preparing a great lesson. Jen is always positive, and patient, and pushes me to excel. In our first session she identified my learning style and prepares each lesson with that in mind. My Spanish improves with every session, as does my confidence in speaking a 'second language.'
In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I honorably served 5 years active duty in the United States Marine Corps. I've successfully taken and passed the ASVAB. I've helped other service members to improve their ASVAB score. I've also helped individuals interested in joining the military to prepare for and pass the ASVAB. I've also helped individuals improve their score in specific parts of the ASVAB to qualify them for a specific Military Occupational Specialty (MOS).
