ESL/ESOL,

ESL/ESOL

I have eight years teaching ESL. I have one year teaching EFL overseas. I am good at teaching idioms through conversation. I like to learn about cultures and languages, and I've travelled around the world extensively. I am the right tutor for you!
Grammar,

Grammar

Are you having trouble with subject/verb agreement, article placement, or "so-and-so and me...or I"? I am a geek when it comes to grammar. I can help you with grammar exercises in isolation or in your writing so that you can achieve the results you want! There are rules for everything, and the English language has exceptions for all of them! I can help you improve your grammar!
Proofreading,

Proofreading

Proofreading has always been a skill that has come naturally for me. I ask myself if it sounds right. Then I apply grammatical rules. My degree is in Applied Learning and Development with a specialization in English. I completed many English courses in college, and I am looking forward to helping you as well!

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

My teaching certificate is valid for first through eighth grades. I have a combined eight years of experience teaching in public schools. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 7th/8th multilevel.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I love to teach math because it is so concrete and tangible! People who do not like math just haven't had a great teacher. I had AMAZING math teachers growing up. I would like to be that tutor that makes math easy for you! I will help you understand!
Elementary Science,

Elementary Science

I enjoy teaching science because it explains how things work around us. The scientific method is fun, and students learn effectively through making observations and asking questions about the world around them. I have a strong science background, as I started my college career as a pre-pharmacy student. I enjoyed high school chemistry so much! I enjoyed developing science lesson plans and labs for my elementary students!

Phonics,

Phonics

We used a premiere phonics system when I taught second grade. I can teach students a variety of strategies for decoding and becoming fluent readers.
Reading,

Reading

I have taught numerous students how to read. I have a good grasp on teaching both phonics for the younger students and comprehension skills for the older students. Reading is essential to learning all other subjects, and I would like to help fill in those gaps for your child, so that reading becomes easy and enjoyable!
Spelling,

Spelling

Spelling has always come naturally to me. After teaching 2nd graders to read, write, and spell, I have several strategies to use to make spelling easy and even fun for your child. These strategies are really so much more fun than looking at a list and spelling aloud. I would love to help your emergent speller become a spelling champ!
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

Does it make your teachers mad when the gregarious students socialize? It should, unless of course, the vociferous students are using what I call "five dollar words." Whether you are studying vocabulary in math or science, or even for the SAT, I can teach you a way to master your vocabulary words. It will help you reach your goals!

SAT Reading,

SAT Reading

I can help you with your SAT verbal score! Whether you are vociferous or more taciturn, I will help you increase your vocabulary! That is an integral part of doing well and being successful on the SAT. Did you know there is a one-fourth of a point deduction for wrong answers? That is to dissuade one from guessing at random. You, however, will be able to select the correct answer and get accepted to your dream college!

History

Bible Studies,

Bible Studies

I have experience as a missionary overseas. I have led Bible studies on the US and Asia. I have learned from participating in Bible studies and attending classes at church. I have a strong foundation in the New Testament.
Geography

Geography

Instead of taking Texas history, I took world geography. That is because my family lived in a country in Europe. We learned all of the countries' capitals. I've also traveled within Europe extensively, so I have firsthand knowledge of many countries. In addition, I've lived in a country in Asia and visited a country in East Africa. Having real life experiences, therefore, brings geography alive and makes it easy for me to teach!

Geometry,

Geometry

I had a wonderful geometry teacher. I made straight A's. I graduated in the top twelve individuals in my class, out of 500+ in my class. Usually you are better at either algebra or geometry. (I admit, algebra came more naturally for me). I still would like to help you excel in geometry, or at least help you earn the grade you want! If you tell me or text me what skill you are studying in advance, I will prepare extra work for you to target that specific skill.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

Prealgebra skills lay the foundation for math courses to come. I was fortunate to have excellent math teachers who taught me to reason and solve problems. I would like to help your student with his math so that he can make good grades and be successful in school!

SAT Math,

SAT Math

I have tutored SAT prep previously. Did you know there is a 1/4 point reduction for wrong answers on the actual test? That means, if you can eliminate two or more answers, you should answer the question. If you can only eliminate one answer, then it's best to leave that one blank and come back to it if you have time. When I took the GRE, my strength was the math portion. I also have an English specialization from college.

ACT Math,

ACT Math

I can teach your student the algebra, geometry, and trig skills to problem-solve for the math ACT. The math ACT has 60 questions in 60 minutes, with no deduction for guessing error. It's in the student's best interest to answer every question before time is up. This differs from the SAT math portion, in which 1/4 point is deducted for every wrong answer.

In a tutoring environment, I can increase student engagement due to the teacher to student ratio. I also provide student-centered activities because many students are kinesthetic learners.

Knowledgeable and patient Tutor

Extremely knowledgeable and patient, Jennifer makes your child feel good. She can point the problems she see causing the student obstacles and makes it easier to understand thus making math enjoyable and achieving their best. My daughter loves her and always she can’t wait for the class sessions. Thank you for your patience. I highly recommended her. You will not find another tutor. Thank you again.
