Bio

Hi! My name is Jen and I love helping people learn! I taught for 4 years in public schools in Michigan and also worked as a teacher at a Sylvan Learning Center for a year. My favorite part was working one-on-one with my students when they needed a little extra help or wanted to learn something new. I really enjoy the process of helping someone understand the process needed to get to the correct answer so they are able to solve similar questions on their own. The look of pride on a person's...

Hi! My name is Jen and I love helping people learn! I taught for 4 years in public schools in Michigan and also worked as a teacher at a Sylvan Learning Center for a year. My favorite part was working one-on-one with my students when they needed a little extra help or wanted to learn something new. I really enjoy the process of helping someone understand the process needed to get to the correct answer so they are able to solve similar questions on their own. The look of pride on a person's face when they get it, when they can take what they've been shown and apply it, is very rewarding.

Though I do not teach in a classroom anymore, I do work in an environment where I get to help people learn new skills. My editing and proofreading skills are often asked for by colleagues and friends who are writing for various reasons, and I enjoy the chance to teach while I help with the structure of a paper or the wording of a publication. In addition, math comes fairly naturally for me and I like solving logic puzzles and Math problems. I like meeting new people, and I like to learn things from others, too.

I have excellent number sense and am able to come at a problem from different angles until I find one that works for the student.

I learned a lot of my grammar skills from my mom, then had great teachers in high school and college who built on this foundation. I love to read and understand that reading regularly make a person a better reader and a better writer.

I have not done tutoring since leaving Sylvan, but I find myself teaching people in my life - coworkers, family members, friends - several times a week simply through conversation. I've learned how to do this in a respectful way that reinforces confidence and dignity. I would love the opportunity to help you learn and grow in confidence!
