About Jennifer

I have been teaching ever since I can remember. I love to see the lightbulb go on when a students grasps what I am talking about. I also like to encourage a love of learning and the desire to ask why.

Tutoring allows me to zero in on trouble spots students have. It also allows me to really dig and help the students discover their passions. I have been working with students on and off for over twenty years. I do it in hopes of capturing the "a-ha" moment. Or at least piquing a student's interest.

I enjoy all types of history, from ancient to current and US to World. I also feel that all of the social sciences are involved when trying to understand history. In this way I try to humanize - make it more relatable to myself and my students. I have taken several courses in Ancient History as well as Modern European History. I have taught AP US History and World Cultures, but most importantly, I too, am a student of history.

Please contact me with any questions you may have. I will work with anyone - I want to see if I can ignite your passion for history.

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.

American History

I taught U.S. History and tutored many students in U.S. History and AP U.S. History. I also reenacted for many years as a Civil War soldier and Southern Belle.

World History

I enjoy World History!! I feel that we need to study it to understand what is going on in the world around us today. So many important events, discoveries, etcetera have impacted our country, and I feel we need to know that to understand our place in the world.
