About Jennifer

In 2011, I received my teaching degree from DePaul University in Chicago, IL. I majored in Elementary Education and I minored in Mathematics.

*A lot of my experiences are in Illinois because I was teaching there and only just relocated to Lansing, MI.

My Experiences:

I was recently the Math Specialist (2016-17) at a K-8 school, in which I worked with students in all the grades to:
- Support students struggling with math
- Provide a more challenging and rigorous curriculum if they benefited from the enrichment

From 2014-16, I taught Math Intervention at a middle school. I focused specifically on teachingstudents in Tier III classes - this means that the students needed intensive daily support because they needed a stronger foundation, more review time than the classroom allowed, and functioned better with individual/small group support. I played games with the students, re-taught and reviewed basics, and helped them understand the concepts behind the numbers.

I have worked in both Kumon and Mathnasium centers, focusing on math instruction. I am strong in communicating with parents, students, and teaching in a way that gives students the instruction that works best for them.

Prior

From September 2013 to March 2014, I taught a 1st grade English class in Thailand. With no background in Thai, it was a difficult but very fun experience as I gained firsthand experience with teaching English as a Second Language to students who only spoke Thai. I taught Science, Math, Health, and English Comprehension and Skills all in English to them.

Before that, I was a maternity substitute in both a 1st grade and 2nd grade classroom, teaching all subjects and communicating with parents to give the students the best education they could have. For several summers, I have also taught literature 3rd to 5th graders by doing fun reading and writing activities.

I have tutored a college-level student in mathematics, along with 3 middle schoolers, 6th-8th grades, in their homes. I am glad to have also had the opportunity to work with a kindergartener in reading and a 3rd grader with his school projects.

Goals:
I am interested in helping children of all ages succeed with schoolwork or just to help them build upon what they know to have a stronger foundation for their future academic careers. As an aspiring teacher, I encourage everyone to use the help of any services to grow and feel confident with some guidance from a mentor. I would be more than willing to help you be the greatest person you can be with a tutoring style that fits each person's personal needs. Because every single person is different, I will see the best and most appropriate method for each individual.

Philosophy:
I believe all students can learn as long as they have great teachers and put forth effort into everything they do. With time and patience, they will know that hard work can help you overcome many of life's obstacles.

Again, thank you for taking your time to review this! Please feel free to contact me because I would love to help you!

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.
