About Jenifer

For the past 15 years I have taught reading, literature, and English to homeschool students and assisted students with editing papers, writing college essays, and preparing for the ACT/SAT exams. Many of the students I have tutored and assisted through the college application process are now attending universities nationally ranked in the top 15 (according to US News Best Colleges).

My approach to teaching writing is traditional. Students work through sentence structure problems and gain hands on experience in writing and identifying/correcting grammar and sentence structure errors. My tutoring sessions help students improve their grades, study for college entrance exams (ACT/SAT), write essays and papers, draft essays for college/university applications, and aquire strong communication skills. Study sessions often consist of analyzing a student's writing assignments, helping students identify and correct errors, and instructing them to improve their overall writing style. Students are given homework assignments to practice on their own which are then reviewed at the next study session. I work primarily with students in high school and college, but I have experience working with all ages.

Contact me if you are interested in my tutoring services. My schedule is flexible, and I am available both to meet in person and online.

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.

College Counseling

I have successfully assisted students with the entire college/university application process: formulating a successful high school academic path to maximize the student's chance of getting admitting into the colleges of choice, identifying best colleges that match the student's academic interests and profile, preparing the student for SAT and ACT exams, identifying scholarships and grant opportunities and assisting the student in applying, assisting with college essays, walking students through FAFSA and college aid process, compiling art supplement for applications, and preparing the student for auditions and interviews.

English

My personal experience encompasses everything from actual development work using Adobe's software, writing copy, developing strategies and budgets, working on campaigns and ads, publishing newsletters, managing email distribution, and SEO.

Public Speaking

As a business owner and marketing executive I have extensive experience in public speaking and am constantly giving speeches and presentations to groups, clients, investors, or my own team. I also represent clients to the media both on TV and radio. My experience also includes giving presentations and training seminars for clients at trade shows. There are strategies to captivating an audience and delivering an effective speech that when implemented substantially improve communication and presentation skills.
