Tutoring for Success, Academic and Leadership
My name is Jennifer and I am passionate not only about teaching, but the tutoring experience! I have been a tutor since 2003 (over twelve years and thousands of hours of experience) working with families of students ranging between preschool to adult in age. I have helped dozens of students in the following subject areas: math, reading, writing, grammar, spelling, science, history, study skills, Spanish, prealgebra, and algebra to name a few.

My name is Jennifer and I am passionate not only about teaching, but the tutoring experience! I have been a tutor since 2003 (over twelve years and thousands of hours of experience) working with families of students ranging between preschool to adult in age. I have helped dozens of students in the following subject areas: math, reading, writing, grammar, spelling, science, history, study skills, Spanish, prealgebra, and algebra to name a few. I have a teaching degree from Oakland University and I taught middle school science for three years before becoming a professional tutor. I do speak Spanish (limited - and studied it for six years.)
Not only do I teach at night, but I homeschool my own children during the day. I am patient, kind, and committed to the students and families I work with in improving their educational skills. I believe every child/adult has the ability to learn. With patient and caring instruction, a desire from the student to want to improve, and support from their family, he/she can accomplish their academic goals. I believe in the tutoring experience, that sometimes, all it takes is to have a tutor work with the student and fit the missing pieces of understanding back into place. I have had much success over the years and I look forward to being the jigsaw piece that helps complete your student's academic portrait!
There is a growing need to teach students leadership skills. Everyone is called to lead in some capacity as he/she matures and learns through life's lessons. Having the right information can lead the way toward opportunity and success in every aspect of a student's life. Blending a solid academic foundation with the life skills supported by leadership principles, will give your student the posture, confidence, and preparedness to enter life's journey after high school. It is never too early to begin teaching life changing principles. Give your student the extra edge and inquire of ways leadership skills can be added to your student's academic experience
She was very detailed in helping our son with his SAT information. Helped us find the right study guide from CollegeBoard. Also some additional tips on his math and on overall note taking. Thank you Jennifer!Tracy, 2 lessons with Jennifer
Patient tutor Algebra 2
My daughter had a final exam coming, her regular tutor was out of town the week before it and Jennifer jumped into a semester's worth of learning to help my daughter study. She worked with her for two hours on areas of concern to make sure she had a handle on it. We received her grade yesterday and she had an A on the final exam, A- in the class. We'll take it! Thanks for the assist.Christa, 1 lesson with Jennifer
Excellent and Knowledgeable Tutor
Jennifer has been an exceptional tutor for my teenage daughter. She is efficient at covering the topics while able to solidify a concept while instilling confidence. My daughter has asked for more sessions because she has found Jennifer so helpful!Mike, 7 lessons with Jennifer
We are very pleased with our new tutor Jennifer. My son needs support in writing and she provides him with that. She has a great personality and very friendly. I recommend her as a great tutor.Yelena , 30 lessons with Jennifer

Patient & flexible
Jennifer is working with my middle schooler who is bright & hard working but has ADHD. Jennifer has accommodated my daughter through her struggles with original composition as well as math. She has worked with her to break assignments down & get a sense of organization. My daughter hates the idea of tutoring yet appreciates her time with Jennifer.Asra, 10 lessons with Jennifer
Jennifer is patient and a great communicator!
I went with Jennifer because of the reviews I read about her. Words just can't describe what a wonderful tutor she is. She has an awesome way of teaching and communicating without overwhelming a struggling student!Shelly, 45 lessons with Jennifer
Flexible and Prepared
Jennifer did a great job working with my son for his Algebra 2 class. She was always prepared with discussion materials and she was very accommodating to our hectic schedule. I believe that reinforcing what was taught in class did help my son retain the materials and apply it.Lisa, 9 lessons with Jennifer
Jennifer has been doing an excellent job tutoring my daughter in AP Bio. At first my daughter was reluctant to tutoring, but Jennifer has been able to connect with her. She finds ways to relate difficult subjects to my daughter's interests. She is teaching her important study skills. My daughter is always very happy after her tutoring sessions and she scored much better on her first test of this semester. I also commend Jennifer for her flexibility in scheduling and fitting my daughter into her schedule.Diane, 20 lessons with Jennifer
A really helpful and knowledgeable tutor!
After my 13 year old, who had been struggling in Honors Biology, met with Jennifer only 2 times, she aced her next quiz, and did well in the next chapter test. Most important, she started enjoying what she was understanding, and we saw our daughter, usually an excellent student, regain her confidence in her own skills. Thank you, Jennifer!Aisha, 8 lessons with Jennifer
