About Jennifer

Welcome to my profile! I am a highly effective, full-time English, Spanish, math, and ASVAB tutor, with an Urban and Environmental Planning degree and an international tutoring certification through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).

With over four years of tutoring experience separate from my WyzAnt hours, I've helped students of all ages and abilities. As a CRLA tutor, I'm proud to say that ALL of my students have successfully passed their courses and improved their grades.

My love for teaching began when I started tutoring at a local community college. In less than a year, I became a tutor facilitator (tutoring small groups), and a tutor trainer. Helping students to learn and build confidence are passions of mine. I work EXTREMELY hard for each and every one of my students and expect each student to rise to my level of effort. While I have high expectations for all my students, I understand that everyone learns at a different pace, and adjust tutoring lessons to each student's learning style. I give a great amount of effort to make students feel comfortable asking me any question that they may otherwise feel 'silly' asking in other situations.

Spanish is my second language, and I personally know the frustrations that come with learning a new language. My enthusiastic and interactive teaching style engages students and encourages them to actively participate in learning. I'm patient, mindful, and make learning fun. I help students organize, prepare for tests and stay on track of assigned schoolwork.

I honorably served 5 years active duty and 3 years reserve in the United States Marine Corps. I hold myself to a high standard, and for that reason, I often ask for feedback to ensure my students are satisfied. I will never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. I'm extremely flexible with tutoring locations, times and cancellations. I offer discounted rates for multiple hour sessions, reduced travel, online lessons, and returning students. To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I reserve a private study room at the public library where I teach private lessons and small group classes. I'm happy to travel to another location if that is more convenient for the student. If you need to get started right away and want results then I'm the right person.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ASVAB

Having honorably served 5 years active duty in the United States Marine Corps, I'm not only familiar with the ASVAB, I'm familiar with the different Military Occupational Specialties (MOS). I scored extremely well on the ASVAB and after graduating bootcamp, worked as a Recruiter's Assistant helping other's to pass the ASVAB. In addition, I helped active duty military members who wanted to change their MOS to improve their ASVAB score to qualify for a different MOS. For nearly the past 10 years, I've been tutoring ASVAB prep, and I've helped many people improve their score and pass the ASVAB.

Spanish

Learning a language is like learning math. Once you know and comprehend the formulas, you're able to communicate and understand it better and faster. Since Spanish is my second language, I teach it from a learner's point of view, as I had to learn the language myself. Conjugating verbs is one of my favorite things to do and I have fun games to help you learn them too.
