About Jenna

I fundamentally believe that all students CAN and WILL learn provided the right environment and instruction. A teacher should never, ever give up on a student. I am fully committed to the academic success of my students.

I have high school teaching experience where I led students to become independent, critical thinkers. I taught Biology in the state of North Carolina for two years. In those two years, 100% of my students passed the state Biology exam at the end of the year. My students' mean score ranked fourth out of all high schools in the state of North Carolina. During my second year I was nominated for the Sue Lehmann Excellence in Teaching award and was a regional finalist. I have a passion for both learning and teaching. I am constantly seeking to improve my teaching methods and tailor my strategies to my individual students.

Besides Biology, I also have extensive experience teaching ACT prep classes and tutoring ACT prep one on one. I have worked with many students who have seen dramatic growth in individual subject scores (including writing) as well as significant growth in overall composite scores.

I am currently an education consult and do travel frequently for work. I do have access to online tutoring and have found much success with it! I am excited to provide you and your student with an exceptional tutoring 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.

ACT Science

I have classroom setting experience with ACT Science test prep. Last year all of my sophomores took the PLAN test (the prep test for the ACT) and on average scored highest on the Science section compared to the others.

Anatomy

I have a B.S. in Exercise Science and spent many of my college years in anatomy/physiology and advanced anatomy/physiology classes and labs. I have experience working in clinical settings and exercise physiology labs.

Biology

I was previously a High School Biology teacher. My students had great success. 100% of my students passed the state exam at the end of each of my teaching years. My students' mean score was ranked fourth in the entire state. I love to include labs and real life example to help explain and demonstrate concepts. I am very passionate and confident in my Biology teaching skills.

Ecology

I was previously a High School Biology teacher and during our year we spent a great deal of time in our Ecology Unit. A am very confident in my Ecology teaching skills.

Elementary Math

I was previously a High School Science teacher therefore I do have the content knowledge for elementary math and science. I have some experience working with younger children and really enjoy it. I am confident and excited to work with your elementary student!

Microsoft PowerPoint

I graduated from a 4 year college with a B.S. in Exercise Science and a minor in Business and Athletic Coaching. I then went on to become a High School Biology teacher. During college I prepared many PowerPoints for presentations and class assignments and during my teaching career, I created PowerPoints on a daily basis to supplement learning. I am extremely proficient and efficient with the capabilities of PowerPoint.

Prealgebra

Math and Science have always been my strongest subjects. Last year I spent time tutoring Algebra I students on the side while teaching Biology. I also have experience teaching Geometry in high school classrooms.

Reading

I scored 100% on the reading test. I have experience teaching high school ACT test prep for reading as well as PSAT and SAT test prep. I passed the MTLE for reading, writing, and math with high scores on my first attempt. I am confident in my reading comprehension skills and my ability to teach reading to others. I have a tool box of strategies to use.

She is AWESOME!!! She is so patient and willing to whatever it takes so you are able to succeed. She is always more than willing to go above and beyond for her students. She takes extra time outside of your tutor session to try and learn all of your materials along with you. Im a student at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities Campus and I'm a science major. My classes are not easy to say t
