About Jennifer

I am an experienced teacher with over 15 years in the classroom. I am certified in Reading Recovery and have a very deep understanding of foundational and primary reading. I have tutored K-3 students in reading, writing and language.

I believe every student can learn, and for that reason I absolutely love teaching and tutoring! I learned best practices through my experience and professional development and I am confident I can move students forward in developing their reading skills; whether it's decoding, sight words, fluency, or comprehension.

I was trained in Literacy Collaborative from The Ohio State University, where my classroom was used as a "model" throughout the state for teachers who were studying the implementation. I've also been certified in Reading Recovery.

I have a deep understanding of how students acquire literacy. I understand the importance of letter-sound correspondences, but also with word families, sight words, and morphology. Students need to be able to break down all words for a deep comprehension.

Again, my experience with foundational literacy and understanding of the importance of how words work makes me an exceptional spelling tutor.

I can move students forward in their reading skills, from decoding to comprehension. I have over 15 years experience as a primary teacher and literacy coach.

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.

Phonics

I am qualified to teach phonics because I have 16 years of experience as a primary teacher. I have 9 years experience as a 1st grade teacher where I have a proven track record of moving students forward on their reading. Phonics and foundational skills are a huge part of that.
