Bio

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 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!

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.

Wonderful tutoring experience

Jennifer went over concepts my daughter was struggling with in math. She tried to explain it in ways that a child her age would understand. She took the time to draw pictures and provide examples as well. She was very consistent with showing her the step by step processes of each problem. I look forward to working with her going forward!

Excellent!!

My daughter has been working with Jennifer lately, she seems to getting "it". "It" being the hang of second grade. Jennifer is able to explain concepts and ideas in an easy and clear way for my daughter to understand. Thank you Jennifer

Positive, Upbeat, Patient, And Fun...Just What My Son Needs!

We had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer last night for my sons first private tutoring session. I don't know why I waited this long to set something like this up. Jennifer was amazing. She is super friendly, informative, and encouraging. My son loved her, he was engaged the entire session, which is huge! I can never get him to do math for more than 5 minutes and she had him doing it for an hour. I am amazed. I could hear the happiness in his voice as he got some answers right, I actually got emotional listening to it. He was so excited, she is boosting his confidence already. We originally set up once a week sessions to see how it would go, but my son was asking for more, he even asked if she could come back the next day. Jennifer is exactly who we needed in our lives, I am so glad I found her. I am a very happy mom. Thank you Jennifer! Another great lesson with Jennifer. I love her positivity and her ability to keep him engaged; she is always able to keep him focused. Jennifer continues to impress me with how well she is able to pull out "math" from our son. He puts in the effort and is growing more and more confidence.

Patient

Today was our first lesson with Jennifer. She did a great job working with our son, who is studying for his comprehensive exam for school. She was patient with him, and refocused him when he got frustrated. All in all, a good first lesson. Our son has been working with Jennifer for about a month now, and they are working well together. My son passed his English comprehensive exam with Jennifer's help.

Engaging and knowledgeable

Jennifer is an amazing tutor . She made my daughter feel comfortable immediately. I was amazing on how quickly she picked up on things that she had been working on in class for months. Jennifer made math fun, my daughter just loves her.

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much! I just love Brooke. She's so easy to get along with and just bubbles with energy. Too cute!

She really is awesome!

Jennifer has worked one week with my daughter and she established a great rapport with her. Jennifer is extremely patient and has been teaching my daughter multiple ways to solve the math problems. My daughter is already feeling more confident while completing her math homework. I'm planning on having my daughter work with Jennifer over the summer to review this year's math concepts so that when she walks into that 8th grade math class she won't feel intimidated.

I adore your daughter! She is such a hard worker and has such a great personality. I can see her confidence increasing and it's a true joy.

Patient, knowledgeable & caring

Thank you Mrs. Jennifer for all your patience and effort with Andrew! I can see him starting to build confidence and open up during the tutoring sessions. We are so thankful for your time and look forward to continue working without you through the summer months to build on his math skills!
