About Jennifer

I taught for 5 years in traditional classrooms and have home-schooled for 17 years. My BA is in Elementary Education, but I have home-schooled all the way through high school. I have taught all of the basic subjects. I understand that each student is unique with a different set of skills, interests, and abilities. It takes a combination of creativity and getting to know how each student is wired in order to help them to be successful. Each individual has areas of difficulty and areas of strength. Those areas of strength need to be encouraged and utilized to bolster the areas of difficulty. I believe in listening to the student and trusting that they know what causes them confusion and what makes sense to them. I believe in stepping "outside the box" to help the individual see things in a way that makes sense to that particular student.

Approved subjects

For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students.
