Help your child succeed academically with a creative, patient, and passionate tutor!

My name is Jenna and I am a positive, self- motivated educator with a California Clear Credential for grades K-8. I've taught many grade levels, and have a demonstrated ability to inspire, teach and nurture students while maintaining high levels of interest and achievement.

I am a passionate and enthusiastic teacher who recognizes the need to work in partnership with parents, teachers and other support professionals to ensure student success. I strongly believe that every child should be given the opportunity to succeed in a classroom, and I am continually excited by those moments in which a child discovers their own academic capabilities. I always look forward to providing opportunities for students to grow, and I patiently work with each child at their given academic level to ensure they feel confident and excited about the content they are learning.

When I tutor, I seek to maintain a learning environment that is flexible, firm, supportive, and well-organized. During a given tutoring lesson, my students and I will discuss our learning goals, so that they will always know what to expect from me, and what to expect from the session. Every child and parent deserves the right to know that the time they spend with me will be productive and professional, as well as engaging and exciting! I believe that every child has the capability to see success in any academic subject, and during tutoring, I remain flexible and patient, working as your child's advocate, rather than adversary. My ultimate goal as a tutor is to become a partner in a child's education, providing the needed skills to support them and help them reach any goal they wish to achieve!

I specialize in reading comprehension skills, writing, and grammar, and am also fully credentialed in math and science. I have taught all subjects; K-8th grade.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a valid California teaching credential for grades K-8. I received my credential in 2012, and have been teaching since 2010. I can provide a copy of the credential as needed to you!








Proofreading

My goal as a writing tutor and proofreader is to guide each student as they explore the writing process, and to help them address each given writing prompt with the highest level of grammatical accuracy possible.

Social Studies

I am a fully credentialed K-8 teacher through the state of California. As such, I have worked with hundreds of students in the area of Social Studies. This has included the teaching of a variety of topics such as geography (state of California, continents, etc.), citizenship (what is a citizen, rights vs. responsibilities, voting, etc.), map skills (compass, directions), explorers (units examining multiple explorers from around the world, as well as manifest destiny and local American exploration) as well as American history (formation of the country, founding fathers, independence, Civil War, WWI and WWII).

Spelling

As a spelling tutor, I carefully guide each student as they review and memorize key spelling rules for the English language.

Study Skills

I am a fully credentialed K-8 teacher through the state of California. As such, I have worked with many students to improve their study skills. This has included providing individual collaborative help with organization and homework habits. I often help students create a homework and classwork checklist to help them organize their thoughts and develop a plan for each day's academic tasks. I also support home organization via a number of strategies (depending on situation) such as creating a dedicated learning space for students, and keeping a task list near their beds so they can check off required homework/other assignments as they put them into their backpack before going to school. I am skilled at assessing a given organizational difficulty, and providing a concrete and easy to implement solution!

Vocabulary

I have worked with hundreds of students to improve and support their vocabulary development. This has included providing individual collaborative help with the use of context clues within a paragraph, as well as guidance in the memorization and practice of other key vocabulary development methods. As a vocabulary tutor, I carefully guide each student as they review and memorize key vocabulary development techniques, and provide many strategies for success with the English language.

Writing

I am a fully credentialed K-8 teacher through the state of California. As such, I have worked with hundreds of students to improve their writing skills. This has included providing individual collaborative help with writing, including brainstorming, rough drafts, research skills, documentation, editing, and final drafts.
