My name is Jennifer and I look forward to working together with you and your child.
I have a great deal of experience aiding children with their studies in elementary through middle school, and with some high school subjects too. I am a certified substitute teacher for all grade levels in Palm Beach County.
English for adults is also something I can do!
I have spent many years helping tutor my five nephews with their homework and projects as well as other friends' children in Florida and in other states. I also worked as a babysitter for children of all ages from my early teens though early high school.
One really important quality that I have attained over the years is being a very good listener and paying attention to details.
In the past, I volunteered as a "Big Sister", for a young girl who was about eleven years old at the time, who had serious learning disabilities, health problems, and other socio-economic issues that caused her to do very poorly in school. Her mother was blind and could not help her with homework, and her father was not in the picture. I worked with her for many years and watched her grow up into a fine young lady. I was her Big Sister for about nine years and we still keep in touch, over 15 years later.
My specialties include English, math, spelling, reading, social studies, language arts and history. Other experiences include working with children who have ADD/ADHD, as well as helping students with exam preparation.
I love to spend time in the library, which was my one of my favorite places when I was growing up, and reading books with children or helping them find new fun books to read. I still visit this very same library in my home town of Morton Grove, Illinois, when I go up to visit my mom. By the way, Mom was a teacher before I was born!
I live in Deerfield Beach, close to Boca Raton and have lived in this area on and off, for over 20 years, so I am very familiar driving in this area.
My current job required me to pass a mandatory full background and fingerprint check by the Palm Beach County School Police Department. Please fell free to call the school system.
Other professions have required that I take a background check, which I have passed each time with flying colors, and I would be most happy to take another background check at any time.
I can provide excellent references.
