About Jennifer

With over eight years of experience as a teacher and tutor, I am confident that I have the experience that would benefit your child's learning and development. I was a 4th and 5th grade teacher for five years, and I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Duquesne University, where I minored in Math and was provided a strong background in Special Education and Language Arts as well. I believe in drawing on the gifts and talents of each student so that they may learn in the most effective way for them; therefore, each tutoring lesson I provide is individualized to meet the unique needs of the student. I look forward to working with your child.

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.

Very experienced and insightful

Jennifer really has a very good understanding of my daughter's deficiencies in writing and spelling. She has a classical approach to teaching that I very much appreciate. Lola like Jen because she is patient. Jennifer always shows up in time and is very reliable.
