About Jennifer

I am currently working in the Ann Arbor public schools as a middle school teaching assistant. I graduated from EMU in 2010 and I will have my teaching certificate as soon as I pass my other certificate test. My major is special Ed which is the one that needs to be completed and my minor is health which is already been passed.

I work with middle schools students primarily in math and science classes. I love working with students and I love working in the schools.

I currently tutor 1 day a week for an 8th grade math student, and I TA for five classes in a day at school. I have worked at my current building for 4 years and I have helped out in 6-8th grade classes.

I believe that everyone is capable of succeeding if they are given the right resources and I think I can help be one of those resources.

I love teaching kids and watching them get that aha moment when the light bulb come on when they finally get what they have been struggling with. I try and making learning beneficial as well as a fun learning experience.

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.

Elementary Math

I have been working at a middle school for 4 years within the Ann Arbor public schools. I worked in elementary for 2 years before going to middle school. Currently I am working in 2 math classes and 3 science classes. I am good at showing examples and giving extra information that the student might need to know when going through the math.

Geometry

If I had to say what one of my favorite math subjects was I would have to probably say geometry. I love working with the shapes and lines of figures. This subject can be difficult for some, but for the most part you always have the answer in front of you with the equation or the formula, you just have to buckle down and work through that and that's what I love to do!

Prealgebra

I have tutored prealgebra for going on two years. I am able to give additional information to the student that the book might not give with plenty of examples. I love to show them a problem first and then we can work on them together.
