About Jennifer

I wasn't always a successful student, and I didn't love school. Sound familiar?
If you had told me when I was a child that I would become a teacher and tutor I would have said you were crazy. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that life would lead me towards education. My struggles as a student are what makes me a great teacher and tutor today, and why my students call me Mrs. Awesome. I can relate to how my students are feeling and the struggles they encounter in school. I am really good at making content relevant and easy to understand. My students have had great success in working with me because I'm fun, encouraging and explain things in ways that are easy to understand. When working with my students, I provide more than just academic support. In addition to content, my students experience increased confidence, strong foundational understanding and life lessons.

Working one on one with me is great because I can truly individualize your learning based on your personality, interests and learning style. I break down the information in ways that are easy to understand, and provide you with resources to use outside of school. I'll also give you fun ways to help you remember important information.

When I'm not tutoring incredible students, I'm teaching full time. This year I am embarking on a new journey of teaching sophomore English. Over the course of my career I have taught middle school for the past 12 years, and preschool for 8. I am K-12 certified, and have worked as a mentor teacher on multiple campuses, as well as a gifted specialist. I'm hard working and flexible, and will work to best meet your needs. I'm available for tutoring online and in person. Looking forward to making learning fun!

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

Know what's super important? Math! Who can help you become a mathematical thinker? Me! Want to increase your confidence? Yes! Who do you call? Me! Need to learn new strategies for solving problems? Yes! Who do you call? Me!

Common Core

I currently teach Common Core math to middle school students, provide professional development to teachers to improve their practice in Common Core subjects and tutor math and language arts.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught all elementary subjects, tutored extensively in language arts and math, supported new and continuing teachers in improving their practice and managed professional development courses for teachers in elementary subjects.

Elementary Math

I love common core math. Crazy, right? It's hard to help our children love and understand math if we struggled as students or have math anxiety. I can help with that.

Common core math is important because children actually come to understand the reason "why", and how to explain their thinking. This helps to instill confidence and paves the way for future math success. Let me show you how easy it can be.

English

I have been teaching English Language Arts for the past 11 years. I am passionate about the correct use of the English language and obnoxiously correct the grammar of people I know and love.

Grammar

Prealgebra

Math is important! Let me help you make sense of math and increase your confidence. Be the most interesting person in the room with your incredible math knowledge. Wow everyone at parties! Solve riddles in your free time. You'll be just like a superhero!

Reading

I have been teaching English Language Arts for the past 11 years. I am passionate about the correct use of the English language and obnoxiously correct the grammar of people I know and love. I read every day and would do nothing else if allowed. Let me help you to love reading too!

Incredible! — We are so thankful to have found Jennifer! My daughter hated Math. It was like pulling teeth to get her sit and finish an assignment. She has sat, engaged, and interested. She feels inspired and is grasping concepts that she's struggled with in the past. Jennifer is knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. So glad we connected. ...
