About Jennifer

I'm currently a PhD student studying Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (basically, teaching English as a Second Language) at the UA, but I've taught English in various settings and to various students in the United States and in West Africa. I've taught high school English (both language arts and as a foreign language), basic English skills to adult refugees and immigrants, and university level writing courses and I've worked with beginning adult readers with learning disabilities. My BA and first MA are in English literature and linguistics, so I'm also experienced in promoting critical thinking and textual analysis.

My style is best described as "adaptive" - my teaching/tutoring depends on my students! I like to begin by getting to know my students, their goals and learning styles, and then I adapt my methods to best fit those goals and styles. I'm open and friendly, well-organized, and extremely diligent in preparing lessons. If you're looking for an experienced tutor in all kinds English, please look no further!
