About Jennifer

I have been teaching Kindergarten for Portland Public Schools for the past two years. I love my job and can not imagine doing anything else with my life! The feeling I get when a child grasps a new concept is the most rewarding feeling I have ever experienced.
Before teaching kindergarten, I worked for Portland Public Schools with children with autism. I worked one on one both in the general education classrooms and in the special education classrooms. I look forward to getting the opportunity to work with you and your child and passing on my love of learning.

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.

Common Core

I have taken many courses on Common Core standards during my Graduate course work. I have also received multiple professional development trainings on the standards. I also design my lessons daily to meet the standards. I am also on a handwriting learning committee and we are designing our curriculum to meet the Common Core handwriting standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

My first teaching certificate was for secondary education in English, Health and Physical Education. I was a substitute for one year with this certification. My current certification is for Early Childhood/Elementary education. I have been teaching kindergarten for two years and love my job.

Handwriting

I teach handwriting for an hour each day. We focus on pencil grip, spacing, and proper upper and lowercase letters. We also work on sounding out words and using different resources to write our words. Over the past two years I have been to four different handwriting trainings.

Phonics

I am a kindergarten teacher. I have been teaching phonics daily for the past two years. I teach chart work, handwriting and reading, which all involve phonics. I also took two phonics courses in my graduate work. I have also been to two phonics trainings over the past two years.

Reading

Certified Kindergarten Teacher for Oregon
6 years' classroom experience

Social Studies

In my graduate course work I took a course which focused on how to teach Social Studies to grades K-8. For the past two years I have been teaching Social Studies to my Kindergarten classes. Before that, I taught Social Studies to a K-2 classroom and to a 3-5 classroom.

Study Skills

While working in a 3-5 communication classroom, we spent time each week working on study skills. We focused on keeping accurate records, being organized, time management, etc. In kindergarten I work with my kids on being organized and not giving up, which I believe is a major study skill for younger kids.
