About Jennifer

I am a 5th grade elementary school teacher. I have been teaching for 10 years in the Lake County area. I have endorsements in middle school social studies and language arts. I have a wide range of experience, from accelerated math programs, to special needs and basic skills. I am looking for opportunities to tutor after school and in the evenings. I have had 15 years of tutoring experience through park districts, libraries, and schools. I often would have teachers recommend me as a tutor because I am very flexible and take time to get to know your child, their needs, and learning type before beginning a plan for them.

I am very patient and flexible and will try multiple ways to present information. I am known for my easy going and caring approach. I have experience working with curriculum design and have been on several committees including ELA and Math to help chose and create curriculum for districts. I am looking forward to helping you and your child in any subject needed.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with students with ADD/ADHD for 10 years. I have kids in my class that I have worked with each year. I understand the need for breaks, broken apart instruction and reinforcement. I have a sensitive spot for these students as my husband also has ADD and I know how he struggled as a kid.

Aspergers

10 years of experience working with students with Aspergers. I have had multiple situations and students I have worked with in the past. I can work on coping strategies, focus issues, and social skills.

Common Core

I have worked on curriculum committees for years aligning curriculum with common core. I worked specifically with the ISBE trainers at CLC on math standards and lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary grades for 10 years. I am certified elementary K-8. I have tutored students from 2-6th grade.

Elementary Math

I taught 5th grade for 10 years with years of tutoring experience. I taught a wide range of abilities including advanced and beginning math classes.

Reading

I have 10 years teaching experience in 5th grade. I have tutored in reading for years with great success. I make sure I find an interest of the student to help guide what we do.
