About Jennifer

Thank you for checking out my tutoring profile. I have several years of experience in education and am MI certified. My degree is Elementary Language Arts Education, but I am able to help with many more areas. Most recently, I have been providing math and reading interventions at Vista Charter Academy.

I enjoy the tutoring atmosphere because it allows me to get to know my students better as individuals and as learners. Additionally, smaller group and one-to-one meetings mean more specialized instruction and that means accelerated learning in the long run. I enjoy playing a lot of games to teach in small groups, but I also still utilize direct instruction when necessary. I look forward to meeting you and your student(s).

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 (K-6th)

I hold my MI teaching certificate for all subjects, K-5 and 6-8 Language Arts. I have multiple years of experience working with kids in every grade level from K-6 from subbing, tutoring, and/or after-school and summer school teaching.

Handwriting

While schools don't put a lot of emphasis on handwriting and cursive anymore, I still make time to work on it with students in my intervention groups. I also have clear, legible handwriting myself. I can also provide several methods to practice in addition to work booklets (i.e., write in shaving cream, sand, whip cream, and writing with licorice).

Phonics

In my position as an interventionist, I teach and re-teach phonics skills daily. Currently, I use a program called "School Pace" to refer to CC standards and manage data that is collected.
