Bio

Hi, I'm Jenn! I have a Master's degree in the Humanities with a focus in English and a Bachelor's degree with departmental distinction in English Literary Studies with minors in Journalism/Media Communications and Linguistics. English is a tricky subject, especially when it comes to grammar and syntax, so I like to explain topics in a way that is relatable to the individual student.

Hi, I'm Jenn! I have a Master's degree in the Humanities with a focus in English and a Bachelor's degree with departmental distinction in English Literary Studies with minors in Journalism/Media Communications and Linguistics. English is a tricky subject, especially when it comes to grammar and syntax, so I like to explain topics in a way that is relatable to the individual student. Having taken so many English courses myself, I know that not everything might be explained in a way that would be understood by everyone. Finding the meaning of a text can also be difficult, but being able to talk it out with someone who has the experience of a teacher, makes understanding so much easier.

I have experience in tutoring and teaching English. I have a year's experience tutoring international students at a college level, making sure their writing skills were where they needed to be in order to be successful in the American Academic system. These sessions would be one-on-one or in workshops where I focused on different skill sets that English professors might not cover in class. I also have a year of teaching experience; I taught English as a Second Language virtually to students in China, making sure they understood their vocabulary and how to use it in everyday settings. I also have several years of experience as a copy editor and proofreader for various publications while I was a student.

I want to help the students I work with as much as possible, not just to make their assignments better, but to help them grow as writers and learners. I welcome any resources or suggestions. I am easy to reach and will always respond quickly. Feel free to contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson!

I studied Linguistics during both my undergraduate and graduate studies. I focused more on the Sociolinguistic aspects of language, taking classes that included Linguistics, Cognitive Psychology, Philosophy of Language, and a two-quarter Linguistics field methods course. Both my undergraduate and graduate theses focused on the effects of language in William Shakespeare's plays.

Excellent tutor

We are extremely happy with Jennifer. She is very nice and knowledgeable. My son likes her too, even though he was resistant about getting a tutor. Exactly what we were looking for.
