About Jennifer

Teaching is without a doubt my greatest calling in life. I am passionate about providing excellent lessons to my students to help them grow. As a music graduate with several years of experience in the education field, my diverse background allows me to connect with a diverse range of students. I love motivating students to go beyond their goals and achieve greater success than they thought possible before beginning tutoring.

I specialize in tutoring elementary students in math and science. I have worked with elementary students throughout Chicago for the past three years both professionally and through volunteer opportunities. I have volunteered with Tutoring Chicago to work one-on-one with students, and have instructed small group sessions for two to five students while working within CPS. As a tutor within CPS, I am able to teach to Common Core standards as well as more abstract methods. My approach to working with elementary students is to teach in a way they are able to easily relate to, which encourages them to retain information in a meaningful way. I am especially effective in teaching difficult concepts to this age group by breaking down foreign terms and having them associate it to something they might experience every day.

I also offer music lessons for trumpet and music theory for all ages. I enjoy getting to know my students so we can work with their strengths in order to address areas where they would like to improve. Music students will appreciate my depth of knowledge and ease in explaining technical and theoretical aspects of performance and reading.

I am generally available Monday through Friday evenings after 5pm and weekends anytime. I can travel to meet students at their homes or a public library. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your goals!
