About Jennie

Hi! My name is Jennie, and I am currently a 9th grade English teacher. As a classroom teacher, I understand the importance of students having a one-on-one experience to help with their individual needs. I am more than happy to help students with assignments from their current English teachers. I am also very capable of creating supplemental lessons and assignments to help in a weaker area. Flexibility is a strength of mine, and I am very willing to mold and adapt lessons and schedules to fit the needs of the student.

For many people, the reading and writing portions of the ACT/SAT are the most daunting. Whether a student needs help with the essay portion, the multiple choice, or even just some help in explaining and reviewing study guides, I have the knowledge and skills to assist.

As an educator, I know the relationship between a student and teacher/tutor is one of the most important aspects of the learning experience. Therefore, I am always willing and happy to meet beforehand to discuss a student's goals and to make sure that this arrangement is the most beneficial for everyone.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

SAT Reading

Passing the Reading section of the ACT/SAT is dependent on two things: reading comprehension and being able to choose the BEST answer. Many questions offer more than one right answer, but one is always better than the other. Therefore, tutoring sessions should be focused on using context to increase understanding as well as exercises in choosing the best and most relevant answers. Not only do I have experience in mastering these skills, I also have plenty of experience in creating exercises and lessons to help my students master these skills.

Writing

By the time I meet my students in the 9th grade, they have already taken on a writing identity. Unfortunately, many of them have adopted a negative one. Either they have been told they aren't very good, or they're too confused or overwhelmed with the process to give it a fair try. Teaching someone to write takes a lot of patience. However, it takes even more patience to unteach the bad habits and reteach the good ones. I enjoy the writing process, and I enjoy helping students master it and regain their writing confidence. I have the patience that it takes and have plenty of experience teaching writing to all kinds of learners.

Jennie has been a great fit for our son. She developed a strategy based on our son's goals and her assessment of his strengths and weakness. She is patient and kind but she has great expectations from the student and she helped him to achieve his potential to the extent of his efforts. Highly recommend her. She has helped to increase his confidence in his readiness for the ACT. Thanks Jennie for w
