About Jen

I have been a middle school social studies teacher for 19 years. I love what I do. Although I enjoy the classroom environment, I am looking forward to helping students grow in a one-to-one environment.

My content area certification is history, however, my specialty is world history. However, after being a classroom teacher for so long, I am looking forward to working with students who need assistance in the following areas:

*binder organization
*study tools/habits/skills
*planning/scheduling/pacing
*preparing for assessments (also dealing with test anxiety)
*transition to middle school from elementary school

Within these areas, these is much to explore with each individual student. It's about teaching them the skills to function in all of their class while reducing stress and possibly anxiety. I have worked with students who have severe anxiety, ADD/ADHD, are on the autism spectrum. In each case, I have enjoyed watching these students grow.

I have been teaching world history from prehistory through the Middle Ages for most of my career. I have also taught about other parts of the world (South America, Africa, South Asia) from early history up to modern times. That is a lot of history to remember so I am not shy about looking something up if I forget. It's a reminder to our students that you should use your resources when you are able to.

I am a good listener and I take what my students say into consideration. Listening to your client or student will enable him or her to choose their path with guidance rather than with requirements.

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.

Study Skills

I have worked with students for 20 years changing the way I teach based on the various skills of my students. Over the years, I have learned that getting to know the student helps you figure out how to help them get organized, study, and motivate them in general. Finding what their interests them and their habits assist in helping them acquire study skills or really any skills necessary for learning. If someone likes basketball, you can figure out a way to include it in studying. Chunking of time on topics can help students with attentional issues.
