About Jennifer

Dyslexia and writing help found here!

So many kids and adults begin to hate reading, writing, and English because they are tired of being wrong, tired of being corrected. I teach that it is OK to make mistakes as long as you keep trying. With perseverance, students can become strong and magnificent readers and writers, empowered by a style and a voice of their own. I can also provide worksheets and helpsheets for parents and students to supplement my enthusiastic love of tutoring.

Currently, I'm a college composition instructor, homeschool tutor, and dyslexia tutor, with my Indiana secondary education teaching license. Recently, I've been using Susan Barton's reading system that uses Orton Gillingham methods to close the achievement gap that so many students with dyslexia experience. I tutor 4th-6th grade students weekly in math, reading, science, history, writing, spelling, and more. I tutor adult learners as well.

I received my MA in English from the University of Louisville in 2011 and my BA in English from Indiana University in 2008. I've tutored social studies, English, and essay writing for two years online; I worked as a Writing Consultant at U of L from 2010-2011; and I was a supplemental instructor in anatomy at IUS. By creating writing workshops for homeschool students, I was able to bring out a love of writing in students while giving them the opportunity to have an outside audience for their work.

For fun, I love to write--not a surprise, I know! I love reading, thrifting, crafting, hiking, swimming, and playing with my kids.

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.

Dyslexia

I work as a college composition instructor, but I have experience teaching reading. I use the Barton Reading and Spelling System, which uses Orton Gillingham methods to help audio, visual, and kinesthetic learners. My nephew has moderate to severe dyslexia and using this system, he has now closed the learning gap and is on level with his peers in reading. I recommend two 45 minute sessions per week to see the most progress.
