About Jennifer

My name is Jenn. I have been teaching for 20 years, including two in Central America. I am currently tutoring full time a 15 year old in Spanish, a 10 year old Dyslexia student and a 5 year old pre-K student among others.

I believe my specialties are study skills, remediation (reading and phonics) and learning strategies. I firmly believe that it is not only the content students need to master but also the strategies to discover the information for themselves when it is not readily available. All students can learn. However, it is very important for teachers to help their students discover the way they learn best. Once this is done, the students themselves can adjust their study skills to fit their individual needs.

Reading is the core of education. If a student is not comfortable in his or her reading ability, they will likely struggle in other areas as well. I do incorporate reading into every content area and focus on comprehension, decoding skills and fluency.

The last component of a successful tutoring relationship is parent involvement. I will spend a few minutes at the end of each session going over what we have learning and give suggestions of work that can be done at home between tutoring sessions.
