About Jennifer

I taught for 8 years as a third grade teacher. Currently, I am home raising my two little boys. Our family moved to Florida from New Jersey about a year ago. Writing is my specialty, which is everywhere in education. I'm looking forward to sharing my passion with students who need help in language arts or math at the elementary level. I believe that every child can learn while having fun! Together, let's make a difference.

Writing comes naturally to me. Descriptive writing brings ideas to life and makes reading more enjoyable. The more you read, the more you know. The more you know, the better you can write.

My certifications include early childhood
education, Psychology, and a P-3 certification from Kean University in New Jersey. I taught in third grade for 8 years. I was Teacher of the Year and took this role very seriously. During my teaching experience, my duties far exceeded that of the classroom. I coordinated graduation, taught Saturday school, taught various summer academies, presented at conferences, tutored, and took 15 credits towards my supervision certificate to name a few. Writing and math were very strong areas for me and my students test scores reflected this. Hands on learning is the tool I use most effectively and in return, creates a fun learning environment for all.

Math may be challenging or reading might not be your favorite. Spend some time with me! I promise your confidence will improve, and you will have fun too.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I attended Kean University in New Jersey, and graduated with majors in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. In addition, I have a P-3 certification. For 8 years, my teaching experience was in a third grade classroom. I was Teacher of the Year, and took this role very seriously. 

During my teaching experience, my duties far exceeded that of the classroom. I coordinated graduation, taught Saturday school, taught various summer academies, presented at conferences, tutored, wrote curriculum, was on committees, and took 15 credits towards my supervision certificate. 

Writing and math were very strong areas for me, and my students' test scores reflected this. No one child learns the same way. My greatest fulfillment comes when together, we navigate through a challenge. Manipulatives integrated with real-life experiences are effective tools that create a safe and fun academic environment. 

Math may be tough or reading might not be your favorite. Maybe you are looking to refine a skill or get a head start on new material. Spend some time with me! Your confidence will improve, and you will have fun too.

Handwriting

Spelling and letter formation is critical to language development and communication. It is a life skill that carries over into adulthood as well. Attention in this particular area paves a smoother transition into the world of language.

I instructed third graders for eight years in the classroom. During this time period, the students were taught how to write in cursive and formulate their letters in print as well. Editing techniques were demonstrated and the students got involved in their own editing process.

Currently, I am tutoring a child through WyzAnt in this exact particular area. Within two weeks, the child's handwriting improved and he moved forward to the next grade. One of the areas he improved in was going back and fixing his hand writing.

I look forward to assisting students in their development of handwriting.

Homeschool

I was an educator in New Jersey for nine years, which means I am a very familiar with classroom curriculum. During my residence in Florida, I have steadily helped students improve academically and socially. Within weeks, grades improve.

Being a homeschool educator allows the student to be in their natural environment and focus on one specific task. I am a valuable resource for aiding the process and vision. I'm excited to help provide your family with a quality homeschooling experience.

Reading

I taught third grade for eight years. I specialized in reading, writing and mathematics.

After only two weeks of tutoring my 6 year old son I saw a huge improvement in his work and so have his teachers. To put the icing on the cake she is an amazing person and an added bonus to her being so good at what she does. I'm happy I found Jennifer and I know she's the one to get my son where he needs to be and much further. I recommend her 100% and there's not enough stars to cover her ra
