About Jennifer

I just completed six years of service in the Navy, where I was part of the SONAR crew on a destroyer. As part of my job, I often got to give my juniors on-the-job training in doing maintenance of our equipment and performance of our duties. I really enjoyed the one-on-one format of this teaching that I got to do, and I'm looking forward to carrying that over into helping students in my academic areas of expertise, which are modern history and English.

I took my B.A. in History at the University of Washington, where I was also a member of the marching band. (I played the mellophone, which is a marching French horn). I started out at community college, though, where I had a scholarship for playing softball as a catcher. In between graduating from the University and serving in the Navy, I worked as a data analyst at an aerospace company in the Seattle area, so I have experience working one-on-one with people in many different contexts: professional, educational, sports, and military.

I have done proofreading for people at all of my different jobs. One of my best abilities professionally is a meticulous attention to detail that allows me to catch even minute mistakes.

As a history major, writing was the major component of all of my classes. I routinely researched and wrote long papers, and sometimes I helped my classmates work on their papers, and enjoyed doing this.

My B.A. in History at the University of Washington focused primarily on modern history, which included American history. I was particularly interested in the Industrial Revolution, and the development of the railroad system as a response to it. I'm also interested in American military history, especially the Civil War and WWII.

I had a scholarship at Bellevue Community College (now Bellevue College) to play catcher for its softball team. One of my particular strengths is in batting technique. I can give guidance in using proper foot stance, eye contact, grip and swing, etc.

While training for the Naval Physical Readiness Test (PRT) at the Base pool, I coached swimming technique one-on-one for fellow sailors, helping them learn how to use a standard crawl stroke to pass their upcoming fitness test.

I'm looking forward to helping you!

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.

Handwriting

One of my assignments in high school was to hand-write a chapter book in cursive. I also write extensively by printing with pen or pencil when I journal or create stories before I post online. People often commend my meticulous handwriting.

Softball

I played slow-pitch and fast-pitch softball for twelve years, culminating in community college, where I had a scholarship for fast-pitch my second and final year on the team. I primarily played as catcher and left-fielder, although I also played all of the other positions besides pitcher. My strength was as a batter, mastering the technique of swing, grip and stance.

Swimming

I was a member of my community's swim team for three years through Jr. High. In High School, I am certified as a lifeguard with CPR from the American Red Cross. In the U.S. Navy, I was a qualified swimmer and passed my 450-meter-swim portion of the Physical Readiness Tests and helped others with their strokes.
