About Jennifer

My name is Jennifer Napolitano and I am a graduate of Kean University. I graduated with honors and a degree in elementary education. Additionally, I am certified in middle school language arts (5-8). I am currently teaching first grade in central NJ. There, I successfully run reading, writing, and math workshops daily. In addition to that, I work with small groups and focus on problem areas in these three areas. I teach students strategies to use when reading: decoding words, identifying blends, chunking, etc.

I have tutored before in the elementary education level as well as the high school level. I love teaching/tutoring, it has always been a passion of mine. Nothing makes me happier than seeing positive results from students I work with.
