About Jennifer

I am a dedicated professional who has helped increase the reading skills of hundreds of students. I gave worked with many different types of learners, specifically students with IEP's and Autism.

I provide challenging and motivating lessons in order for students to become confident and completely engaged in the process of reading. Skills that are taught and reinforced throughout the lessons are: decoding, fluency, accuracy, comprehension, inference, and vocabulary. Learning should be fun and so I incorporate games along with other fun and interesting ways to help students learn.

I assess a student's reading ability using a variety of materials and resources. I continue to assess the progress of each student during our lessons. Based on the student's abilities, I develop lessons that target specific concepts that the student needs to strengthen. I believe that every child can and should have the opportunity to learn, thus I tailor my teaching according to the learning style of the student.

I have a worked with students that have learning disabilities, Autism, and processing deficiencies. I was a paraprofessional for three years and worked one-on-one and in small groups specifically in the area of reading. Every student I have worked with has made significant progress in reading. I have a background in phonics, decoding, and word attack skills.

I use different teaching methods to work with students that have ADD/ADHD. I provide visuals and ways for the student to move about while learning. My lessons truly engage the student physically and mentally.

I am available to tutor everyday from 9am to 6pm. I can travel to students to meet at their home, library, or other public area. My rate is $20/hour.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies!

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.

Phonics

I am qualified for this specific subject in that I have a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education. Within my degree coursework I have completed two phonics based classes. I have worked for the past 3 years as a paraprofessional working with students in phonics. My lessons consist of beginning (onset), ending (rhyme) sounds, and middle sounds to include: digraphs, and blends. When working with students I build on each skill level depending on where the student's skill level is at present. I use various resources to guide the student to decode, encode, and become more accurate and fluent in reading.

Vocabulary

I currently hold Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education in which I am certified in the state of Georgia. I have had the Exceptional Learners course which takes into account ADD/ADHD learners. I have also worked with students that have ADD/ADHD during student teaching and as a paraprofessional.
