About Jennifer

I am a recent graduate with a degree in English Language Arts education. I am well versed in strategies to help struggling readers at all age and achievement levels. I have worked with students from multiple backgrounds, and am committed to helping every student achieve. As required for all certified teachers by the state of Alabama, I have passed the Praxis for both Education and English Language content knowledge. I am first aid and CPR certified. I have worked with students ranging from second to 12th grades. I have experience working with students from various backgrounds and life experiences and work with each student individually to achieve success. With my knowledge of reading education, I bring a strong knowledge of different types of reading materials so that I can help all readers find the material that is best for them. I strongly believe that everyone can discover the joy of reading when they are introduced to the right material for them. I also regularly challenge myself to find the most creative and engaging ways to introduce new concepts and skills and make all skills applicable to everyday life.

I am also well versed in different writing styles and formats. I have worked with students at different skill levels in order to help them achieve stronger writing skills and proficiency. When tutoring on writing, I will work to make sure that the writers original voice remains, while working on matters such as style and grammar. I have knowledge of multiple writing strategies that will help struggling writers to organize their thoughts into a cohesive and comprehensive body of work. I have tutored students in writing in both the K-12 environment as well as in my university's writing center. Through classes on tutoring writing I have attained the skills needed to help every writer feel comfortable in expressing their ideas and concerns and working as a team to reach the writer's goals.
