About Jen

I just completed my bachelor's degree at PSU. My focus while there was ESL teaching methods and I put in many hours tutoring students in their Intensive English Language Program. I have worked with students at every level of English proficiency and have experience assessing gaps in understanding and providing the knowledge and resources to fill in those gaps!

I am a dynamic language professional with 10-year proven track record delivering writing and editing services to public and private sector organizations. I have an additional 2+ years facilitating language acquisition and teacher training through communicative principles that encourage meaningful interaction. I am familiar with national and international educational and cultural standards and have worked with a diverse array of learners.

Having studied psychology and education, I understand how the brain works and how connections are made. I am adept at metaphor and analogy and many mnemonic techniques. As a teacher, I would say my style is more 'mentor' than 'leader'. I can cheer and support you through any struggles, while maintaining high standards because that communicates my confidence in your abilities.

What makes me a great tutor? Patience and compassion. I understand the learning process and respect my students' right to work through concepts at whatever pace is comfortable. Rushing students or 'helping' them with too many hints leaves gaps in learning and denies them the opportunity to make unique connections that will improve recall at test time, as well as their ability to use newly acquired knowledge in all settings.

I'm looking forward to meeting you and learning how I can help you reach your goals!
