Hi! My name is Jennifer and I have been a teacher and high school guidance counselor for fifteen years. I love working with students of all ages, abilities and exceptionalities. My areas of expertise include English (elementary and secondary), college writing, SAT preparation, resume and cover letter building, as well as Reading, Study Skills and Speech. What makes me unique is that I can truly and cheerfully work with all students and find a way to teach them that incorporates how they learn most naturally while still building upon what challenges them. I am patient, nurturing and can reach the most reticent/difficult students. I look forward to working with your child!
