About Jennifer

I am back in Pittsburgh to be near family and to raise my family. We have spent the past five years in Alexandria, Virginia and are delighted to be back home. I come with thirteen years' teaching experience in Elementary Education. I have been a full-time teacher for most of this time but I have also had the opportunity to be a permanent substitute and day-to-day substitute teacher. I have had the good fortune to teach Kindergarten in Japan , First Grade in North Carolina and Virginia and also Fifth Grade in Virginia.

I am a positive and kind teacher and I would love to help your kids. Along the path of my teaching career I have had the opportunity to teach, mentor and grow and I want to create as many more opportunities for teaching, mentoring and growing for many years to come.



I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

My college degree is in Elementary Education. For the past 13 years I have taught Kindergarten, First and Fifth Grade. I began tutoring students while in college and have had the opportunity to continue tutoring students in grades K-6 throughout my career.

Elementary Math

I was the Elementary Math Lead for my school. I attended a course to gain this lead teacher position and would regularly attend Math workshops and professional development to share new knowledge with the school faculty and my classroom.

Handwriting

I have spent 8 years in the lower elementary classroom where handwriting was a daily part of the curriculum. I have had the opportunity to work closely with occupational therapists who have many useful techniques and tools to help with handwriting. I have knowledge of print, manuscript and cursive handwriting techniques.

Friendly and fun — It was our first meeting. Jennifer was very warm and friendly and made my daughter feel very comfortable. She worked with her to determine her skill level and where she needed some extra help. She made it fun by playing games with her. Overall, we were very happy with our experience and look forward to seeing her again next week. ...
