About Jennifer

I am a native Tucsonan. I have taught for Tucson's largest district for almost 10 years. I received my Bachelors in Human Services (Psychology) in 2005. I chose this degree as a way to better understand the students that I would soon be teaching. Immediately after earning my Bachelor's I entered into a Master's program for my education degree. In 2007 I completed my program. I was fortunate to begin teaching prior to the completion of my degree at a local charter school. I took nearly two years off from the academic world before deciding to pursue my doctorate in education.

Many PhD students are pursuing degrees in leadership. I've never wanted to be an administrator. I've always wanted to stay in the classroom in some capacity. I chose to earn my PhD in K-12 Studies. I want to make an impact on the world of Curriculum and Instruction. I believe this is where education is lacking. I want to make sure all students’ needs are being met with individual uniqueness that is so important to us all.

My last 10 years in the classroom has been split between middle and high school. I taught 8th grade mathematics for 5 years. The last five years I have taught high school mathematics. I am certified to teach from K-12 grade mathematics. My preference is for Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. The last 4 years I've have the opportunity to teach a mathematical finance course. This is by far my favorite class to teach. I enjoy teaching students math they will use in their everyday lives as adults. This class is currently offered to seniors. It is enjoyable and eye opening to see them discover what they hadn't known was just around the corner.

My tutoring methods involve direct and guided instruction. I need to be able to meet their needs. It is helpful if he/she has a specific area to focus on. It will be my job to determine if there are prior skills lacking. I will address those as they appear.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Algebra 1

I have a PhD in P-12 Studies, Masters in Elementary Education, and Bachelors in Human Services (Psychology). I have been teaching mathematics for 10 years at the middle and high school level.

Algebra 2

Algebra 2 is my specialty. I enjoy working with upperclassmen to show them how the advance algebra works in real life. Many of my students were not successful in other classes learn success in mine.

Bodybuilding

My experience with bodybuilding is limited to powerlifting. For the past 18 months I have competed with the Tucson Barbell Club. I have earned many 1st and 2nd place medals/trophies. I believe I have a solid foundation for the basics and can assist with proper form in squat, bench, and deadlift.

General Computer

In my 10 years as a teacher I have found the best way to communicate with my students is through technology. I've used all platforms but I am more proficient with PCs. I have written and maintained websites for the classes I teach.

Geometry

I have been teaching mathematics for 10 years at the middle and high school level. I taught Geometry for 2 years at a local high school. I've worked with local districts to revamp curriculum to make it more inviting for students.

Microsoft Excel

Prior to my career as an educator I did technical support for a customer service company. We had many reports that were created and maintained in Excel. Now in my teaching career I use Excel to teach finance to my high school students.

Microsoft Outlook

I have used this program for over 10 years in all of my jobs. I am called upon by my colleagues to explain features of the program and/or to teach them about shortcuts. My tutoring methods would be specific to the needs of my students.

Microsoft PowerPoint

With all of my degrees presentations were required. I am self-taught. PowerPoint skills have proved to be useful when creating lessons for my middle and high school students. The appreciate the interaction with an smart board.

Microsoft Word

I've inserted tables, created figures, added headers and footers, and written mathematical worksheets in Word. I've assisted many friend and colleagues with their writing and editing in Microsoft Word.

Praxis

Praxis tests require a wide range of knowledge in writing, reading, and mathematics. I have participated in and led study groups that resulted in other teachers earning passing scores. I've passed my AEPA and Praxis tests.

Prealgebra

I have taught for 10 years. Both in middle and high school. Pre-algebra is a familiar subject for me. I've worked with the local school districts to prepare new curriculum for the upcoming CCSC as well.

Proofreading

From general composition to completing a dissertation. I passed the edit/revision review of my dissertation with minimal corrections. I was successful in my proofreading and did not need to hire an editor.

Study Skills

I have a PhD in P-12 Studies. I believe to earn a PhD, run a household, and work a full time job as an educator requires excellent time management skills.
