About Jennifer

I am a responsible, honest, and respectful certified teacher in grades Pre-k to 8 with a Reading Specialist Degree. I have taught in public education for 13 years, but have experience working with children for 20 years through babysitting, summer camp teaching arts and crafts, tutoring adults and children in college as well as substitute teaching. I currently teach 4th grade in Montgomery County, and have taught both 3 and 5 in the county as well. In addition, I train tutors how to tutor a larger group on Saturdays through the school year.

Additionally, I have experience teaching children ages 3-12, in an informal session through cooking at birthday parties and camps. This includes teaching them about cooking in general, the foods, nutrition, and measuring.

In graduate school, I tutored students to help them obtain a GED and worked with adults to help them learn the basics of computers, and help them learn to read.

I am willing to tutor your child during the school year or in the summer, or for just a session here or there.

I will also do book groups with children so that they can keep up with their summer reading.

Looking for your child to learn to cursive write or improve their spelling? I can teach them that too!

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.

I am a Maryland State and New York State certified teacher in Pre-k through 8th grade. Additionally, I have 9 years of teaching experience in Montgomery County, Maryland.

I have worked for GBTLA and Montgomery County for 9 years.
