About Jennifer

I have over thirteen years of experience in the field of education. I am certified in Middle School and High School Language Arts and English. I also have a Masters Degree in school counseling and am a career counselor. I have worked in a variety of school settings including alternative learning environments for special needs students and students who have been expelled or suspended from school. I currently teach GED students in a variety of subject areas, as well as working with those who need to enhance study skills, motivation and have issues with school avoidance/anxiety. My past experience also includes teaching and job coaching Deaf and Hard of Hearing students and those with other disabilities.

In addition to tutoring English, I can work with anyone who needs help finding motivation, enhancing life skills and in need of career counseling. I have worked as a college career counselor and am able to perform and evaluate interest inventories and am familiar with the college application and financial aid processes.

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.

Throughout my teaching career I have worked with many Aspergers students from all different levels on the spectrum. In addition to teaching, I am also a certified school counselor who can work with students on social skills.

I worked as a college Career Advisor for several years. As a Career Advisor, I became familiar with many different career inventories, which I am able to give and interpret. I can also work with individuals in need of assistance with college selection and motivation.
