All of Jennifer’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Jennifer’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

English

English - certified Middle and High school English teacher in Massachusetts, experience as a professional journalist and theatre director, also experienced in public speaking, research papers, and the writing process.

Public Speaking

I have an undergraduate degree in Theatre Performance with coursework in voice and diction, breath support, posture and eye contact. I also have singing training that includes the use of one's diaphragm to project in public speaking. In addition, I hold a master's degree in Theatre Education and have experience directing theatre productions with both children and adults and have implemented many techniques to teach stage presence, projection, confidence, and performance skills. I can also assist in presentations incorporating both you as a speaker, your information incorporated into a PowerPoint presentation with other visuals, and other items you would like to display that will not distract from the key notes of your speech.

Social Studies

I have a Middle School Humanities license to teach grades 5-8 social studies covering areas of ancient civilization, world history, geography and US History. I also just completed a graduate methods course entitled "Curriculum and Assessment in teaching History and Political Science to Middle School" in my second graduate program studying for an M.Ed. in Middle School Humanities. I also have undergraduate coursework in political science, government and journalism.

Study Skills

As a Title I Tutor, I helped students identify learning strategies that worked for them and still do when I tutor individual students. This includes highlighting directions, circling action words, using sticky note reminders for vocabulary, using context clues to find the meaning of words, or breaking down the word into its root or prefix and suffix. Then, I have the students record these strategies to use when they are working alone. These are only some of the skills I have identified for Language Arts. I have a number of other skills for Math and Organizational Needs.

Theatre

I hold a B.A. in Theatre and an M.A. in Theatre Education. I have 2+years teaching middle school drama in public schools as well as 5+ years directing elementary, middle, and high school theatre productions. I have taught such subjects as theatre history, scene study, character development, improvisation, performance skills, and stage management.

Approved Subjects

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
