About Jenifer

I believe all people are natural learners. My attempts to provide an individualized plan and strategy for my students has proven to be both well received and successful. Overall, I have been immensely impressed by the motivation and commitment that my students have shown by their attendance and attentiveness. In many cases when there was a specific goal, such as passing the TOEFL/ ESL or GED exam, these goals were achieved. I was always proud to see one of my former students enrolled in university classes or else in a good job placement.

I consider my experiences as a tutor to be fortunate to me and equally, a mutual privilege. I often taught in a multi-cultural group setting in addition to providing one-on-one tutor sessions. My effort to make each lesson appropriate, productive and fun was well worth my endeavor because of the positive responses I could see reflected back to me by my students. I have also taught literacy and consider it one of my greatest honors. I believe the learning experience helps foster a person's sense of empowerment and will allow for wider opportunities in the world at large.

I am able to teach English because I have spent almost a lifetime working to enhance my own knowledge base and to develop improvement in my writing skills and technique. I am a lover of words and language. I have always been willing to animate or play-act a word or concept if a student needs more foundation to fully comprehend. Despite linguistic and/or cultural differences, my experience has shown that we all share a common interest in communicating with one another and that overcoming the initial barrier of embarrassment or fear is the most important step toward succeeding in any language program.

I am a very good language tutor because I have been a lifetime learner of languages myself. I had learned three languages proficiently by the time I was six years old. I have traveled and lived in many parts of the world including almost all the continents, therefore, I feel I share a universal common ground with others. I have a natural orientation to develop an exchange with others.

Please contact me if I can be of assistance to you. I will make every effort to meet your required needs and help you to learn or improve your skills as quickly as possible. I once developed a spelling program for a high school student who could only spell at the 4th grade level. In about a month, this student had improved his spelling scores to the 10th grade level and he no longer needed my assistance; that is an example of a great success story.
