About Jena

I'm an author and illustrator who has spent her career as a freelance journalist, penning everything from articles for national magazines and marketing materials to online classes. My most recent endeavor is a series of children's books designed to teach social-emotional as well as academic skills.

The main thing you need to know about me is that I love stories and believe they are a wonderful way to not only learn how to write, but get to know how your heart and mind work as well. Knowing yourself is a vital part of becoming an effective writer. It teaches you basic skills like grammar, punctuation and vocabulary, yes, but also how to effectively communicate with others. I love helping students fall in love with telling stories and become excellent communicators as well.

I taught ESL in Japan for ten years. I have written and taught several online writing courses. I have edited many books and courses for teachers. I have written and illustrated five children's books.
I have developed more than a dozen writing programs based on the book series.

My first degree is in advertising illustration. I have illustrated by five books. I teach drawing to students in classrooms around the world.

The best part about tutoring is that it is a collaborative process. There is no ONE right way to teach any subject. We all learn differently, and half the fun is discovering what is unique about each individual. I firmly believe that learning is an ongoing iterative process and should be not only challenging, but enjoyable as well.

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.

Drawing

My first degree is in advertising illustration and I regularly do graphic design, logos and custom illustrations for clients. I am also the illustrator of the CritterKin book series.
