About Jennifer

I am a certified teacher who loves all parts of learning. I have taught for three years and I am looking to expand my experience beyond the classroom. I am a teacher with high expectations and someone who doesn’t take excuses. I work hard and expect my students to do the same. I can help in all things elementary except foreign language.

I use my experience as a teacher and being a student to help those I am teaching. First, I look at the best way a student takes in information. Coupled with prior knowledge, I use this information to make a tough subject easier to manage. Education is in my blood and I am willing to do whatever it takes for my students. I haven't worked with high school or college students but I am capable of tutoring those students as well. I have worked with teens in church and can relate well to how they learn. If you are looking for someone who will get you results and that will stick with you until you get it, then I am your woman.

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 currently hold an Illinois teaching certificate that approves grade K- 9th grades. I also have three years of teaching experience in grades 1-4th and 7th grade.

Phonics

In my three years of teaching, I have taught phonics for two of those years. I have also used data through testing phonics skills in order to pinpoint areas that needed to be worked on.

Study Skills

As a teacher, giving students study skills is a part of my job. I have to teach them how to even start studying in order for them to really grasp a concept. In my experience, I have taught students various techniques such as flash cards and associations to help them learn and remember difficult concepts.
