About Jennie

Hello,

My name is Jennie and I am a 26 year old teacher in Montgomery Country, PA. I currently teach 10th grade World Literature. I graduated from Kutztown University in 2010, and I am highly qualified to teach English for students in grades 7-12, Social Studies for students in grades 7-12, and Special Education for grades K-12. I am also working on my Masters Degree in Special Education from Drexel University. I have passed reading, writing, and math Praxis tests for grades K-12, and I am confident teaching and tutoring all grades for English and Social Studies, and up to Algebra I and Biology for Math and Science. I currently live in Lafayette Hill, PA, and I am looking for tutoring opportunities after school or on the weekend.

I pride myself on being an innovative teacher, and I will create lessons that will be both engaging and helpful for your student to continue their studies, or to work on specific areas of need.

In between formal, scheduled tutoring, I offer my students free email support. If you email me questions, I promise to return your email by 3:00 the next day, at the latest!

I look forward to hearing from you and working with your student to strengthen your abilities in the subject that we will work on together!

Jennie came out to the house today for our first tutoring session with my son. She reviewed my son's IEP and gave her suggestions on how to improve his reading skills. Jennie came prepared with reading materials. My son loved her. He said she was very patient and encouraging. We have scheduled her to come out to the house twice a week. Thank you Jennie for giving us hope!
