About Jennifer

Hello students! I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin where I studied Psychology and Human Development and Family Sciences. I have worked as a certified teacher for 7 years, teaching Science, Math, and Algebra I at the Middle School level and Science, Social Studies, and Reading at the Elementary School level. In my years as an educator, I have learned a great deal about creating a supportive environment that promotes positive learning experiences for all of my students, and I have been recognized as my campus' Teacher of the Year. I have developed skills in working with a variety of learning styles, and I aim to highlight the relevance of learning material to the world beyond the classroom. In each of my 7 years as a teacher, I have provided before- and after-school tutoring to struggling students and those wanting to get ahead. I have a passion for helping young minds reach their greatest potential, and I hope to help many of you do just that!

I have spent nearly half of my teaching career helping students prepare for district benchmark exams and standardized state testing in Middle School Math and Algebra I and Elementary School Science. 100% of my most recent Algebra I students not only passed their state End-of-Course exam, but they also scored at the Advanced Level. I understand the different learning styles and needs of my students and use the appropriate learning and instructional strategies to build their confidence and develop their skills in Math and Science.

For 7 years, I have developed and implemented effective and engaging math and science lessons aligned with instructional objectives and have embedded the inquiry process and laboratory opportunities into my instruction. I diagnose and analyze student progress and provided appropriate instruction, employing a variety of techniques and strategies in order to meet the needs of my students.

If you are looking for someone who is patient, experienced, and enthusiastic about learning, I am the tutor for you! I am generally available weekday afternoons and evenings, and my base rate is $45/hour for in-person and online lessons. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you reach your academic goals!
