About Jennifer

I believe every child needs a secure and creative place to grow as a student. My job is to act as a guide so my clients can achieve their goals in school and grow intellectually in a safe and creative environment. My goal is to provide my clients with academic support that includes tutoring, coaching, test preparation, project completion, summer bridge, and online school support. This is the greatest job!

I tutor in many subjects including Math, English, Writing, History, and Science. I specialize in students with learning and behavioral challenges but tutor all types of students. I have experience with Individualized Learning Plans (IEP), and 504 plans. My students and I work on their current schoolwork and projects along with either remediation or enrichment activities. I also have a personalized program for preparing for the ACT, SAT, FSA, and GED exams. All my sessions are individualized to the student's current needs. Feedback and progress reports will be given frequently.

In order to create a quiet and comfortable environment, I have a tutoring office in Tampa near I-275. I have been in this location for 2 years after relocating from a prior location. I have many after school and weekend hours. I ask for 24 hours prior to a cancellation but will reschedule as available.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing how I can help your student achieve success.

My goal when tutoring math is to teach students straightforward methods in which to solve problems. We work to find the technique that makes the most sense to each student. Students will understand the types of questions that will be asked and how to handle each situation. Certain tricks and shortcuts will also be utilized.

English and writing are so important to school success and 2 of my favorite things to tutor. Guiding students through the writing process or in understanding a piece of literature also helps a student grow and learn about themselves and the world around them. Being a part of that process is extremely rewarding.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing how we can create a program that will ensure better grades, increase retention of schoolwork, raise test scores, and inflate self esteem. If you have any other questions, let me know.

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.

Algebra 1

My goal for tutoring Algebra is to arm my students with strategies to solve old and new concepts. We use logical, critical thinking skills to cope with real world type questions. I use visual models to illustrate problems. I have also coached several students through an online Algebra 1 class. All of them left with tricks and strategies as well as a better understanding of the concepts.

Elementary (K-6th)

In 1995, I graduated with Honors with a degree in Elementary Education. I taught both middle and elementary school from Kindergarten through seventh grade. I employ many techniques that include visual and auditory practice. For the last 6 years, I have worked with students of all ages in reading, math and writing. I offer support to the regular school curriculum and also enrichment and remediation when necessary.

Elementary Math

I have tutored students with learning challenges for 5 years. I will use a structured approach that will start with phonemic and numerical awareness. We will work, step by step, to improve reading and math skills.

English

5 years of experience with students with ADHD and other learning challenges.

Prealgebra

I have 5 years of tutoring students. My goals is for students to not only learn math rules and formulas but to be able to apply them to real world situations as required by the new math curriculums.

Reading

I have 8 years of experience teaching reading in elementary schools along with 6 years of tutoring experience.
