About Jennifer

My name is Jennifer, and I am a certified teacher. I consider myself dedicated, self-motivated, and caring. I've been teaching for 11 years, 9 of which are in an urban area. I attend frequent trainings to find new ways to make my teaching more innovative. I currently teach 5th grade science and through a primarily hands on program, open their eyes to new concepts and theories they never knew. I'm an avid reader and love discussing books and current events with my students. I'm a firm believer and advocate for students taking ownership of their work. If they are proud in what they do, they will strive. To do this, I encourage my students to ask questions, explore concepts they are interested in and even challenge them to connect things they are interested in to concepts they are learning.

Over the last 11 years, I have taught a range of grade levels from first grade through eighth. I am certified to teach K-8 science, K-12 Reading and writing and all elementary subjects. I have experience in science, reading, writing and math. No matter the subject I teach or tutor, I believe it's important to understand each students' learning style and use that to enhance learning. As a tutor, I will do the same. I know I am a visual learner. I learn best when things are drawn and modeled. I would want to make this tutoring experience a valuable experience for both myself and the student. By understanding how the student learns, allows this to happen. I would also be prepared to help the student with homework and study for tests.

Approved subjects
