About Jennifer

I left the field of law after 8 years, finally realizing that the law is not where I want to be- and teaching is not only a gift I have, but a passion! I'm currently a substitute teacher and I'd love to help with your tutoring needs! I have two children, both with very different educational needs - through this parenting experience, I've become adept at finding what motivates them to learn what they're having difficulties with. One of them is, and has been, a straight A student for five years (principal's honor roll every quarter and on track to likely be valedictorian of her 8th grade class), and the other one (5th grade), who started out not liking reading - or school for that matter - is consistently coming home with impressive results! I'm very involved in my children's school and my daughters' friends consider me the "cool mom." I develop rapport quickly - and have been asked on more than one occasion - by teachers - if I'm a teacher! Now I'm headed down that educational path and hope to have my professional certification by next June.

Kindergarten - third grade: I will tutor reading, writing, handwriting, spelling, vocabulary and math.

Fourth grade - 12th grade: I will tutor literature, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, history, government and social science in general.

For college students, I have a working knowledge of Constitutional Law classes, as well as international politics. I am an excellent proofreader, and also offer typing services. I have a high score of 162 on the LSAT, so let me know if you need help!

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.

ACT English

I scored 100% on WyzAnt's certification exam. I am a paralegal who has taken the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test), and have excellent Reading Comprehension and writing skills. My English skills are excellent, and I believe I can assist you or your child in doing well on this exam. I look forward to hearing from you.

English

I scored 100% on the WyzAnt certification test. I look forward to assisting you or your child in English.

Government & Politics

In 2001, I received my degree in Political Science from the University of South Florida. I love government studies and all social sciences, and look forward to helping you or your child improve in these subjects.

Grammar

I scored a 100% on WyzAnt's certification exam for grammar. I look forward to tutoring you or your child!

Handwriting

I have two children with whom I spent their first formative years. Before they went to pre-school, they were already writing their names and the alphabet. Additionally, I am a substitute teacher, and frequently work with K-5 students; handwriting is a big part of my job. I keep manuscript tablets in my car for handwriting assignments at schools where supplies are limited, and would be able to supply them to any students who needed assistance.

Literature

I scored 100% on WyzAnt's literature certification test. I love literature and look forward to tutoring you or your child!

LSAT

I scored a 162 on the LSAT, and plan on going to law school in the near future.

Not only can I help you learn concepts and how to set the games up, I can give you pointers on how to prepare and what to expect from the actual experience.

I'd love to help you do great on the LSAT!

Political Science

My Bachelor's degree is in Political Science. I received mostly A's in my degree area, and never less than a B. I am very familiar with all three branches of the government, and am especially familiar with the judicial area of our government.

Proofreading

As a paralegal, much of my work revolves around making sure that what I submit to the Court is perfect in every way. I am an excellent proofreader and look forward to sharing my expertise with you or your child!

Reading

I scored 100% on WyzAnt's certification test. As a paralegal, it is imperative that I have a full understanding of documents in front of me. I am well equipped to tutor you or your child in how to improve in reading comprehension!

Spelling

I scored 100% correct on WyzAnt's spelling certification exam. I am confident I can assist you or your child in both increasing their vocabulary and becoming a spelling champ! I look forward to working with you.

Vocabulary

I scored 100% on WyzAnt's certification exam. My college minor is in Mass Communications, and I have an excellent command of the English language. I look forward to tutoring you or your child!

Writing

I scored 100% on WyzAnt's certification test. One of my strongest areas in both college and my professional career is the ability to write clearly and concisely. Additionally, I excel at self-editing. I believe I can be of great service to any individual needing help in these areas, and I look forward to tutoring you or your child.
