About Jennifer

As a 20 year veteran educator with a lifelong love of learning, I work well with students of all levels. I am currently a middle school head counselor, but taught elementary and middle school for 10 years of my career. At the elementary level, I both wrote and taught curriculum. In addition, I taught bilingual/ESL classes and served as the bilingual facilitator for the campus. I successfully prepared students for the state test. I taught math and reading using a research based program from Johns Hopkins University. In middle school, I provided instruction in science and character education.

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Interdisciplinary studies with a bilingual/ESL endorsement from Texas State University, a Masters in Counseling from UTSA, and completed coursework for my administrative certification at Lamar University.

My teaching fields enable me to provide excellent support for students in multiple subjects. My counseling experience has enabled me to build positive rapport with everyone with whom I come into contact. Often, my students need self-confidence boosts, study skills, and positive learning experiences in addition to the teaching of the material. In my experience, quality learning occurs when educators teach students, rather than simply content.

In addition to being fluent in English and Spanish, I have my Bilingual/ESL teaching certification in the state of Texas. My counseling skills have also helped me empathize and help students adjust to coming to a new country, with the academic and emotional hurdles. I have developed numerous strategies for assisting student in bridging the gap, both as a teacher and counselor.

I have spoken, read and written Spanish from a very young age. I completed Spanish coursework in Middle School and was able to take credit by exam to receive 16 hours college credit in Spanish.

With many years of training in test taking strategies as well as preparing my students for standardized tests with impressive results, I am quite familiar with the process. Moreover, I have served as a test administrator and campus test coordinator.

I am a certified teacher with years of experience in the classroom.

I am excited at the prospect of tutoring students of varied needs. Please contact me to schedule your session today =)

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ASVAB

I have 20 years of teaching experience and personally helped prepare numerous students over the years. In addition, I have undergone countless test preparations in my coursework and professional certification programs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught elementary school for 7 years and am a certified teacher in the state of Texas. I was responsible for teaching all subjects to my students and my students always did well on district benchmarks and state exams.

Elementary Math

I taught a research based math program that was really successful with my students and prepared them for district and state level exams.

English

I have taught all subjects for many years and am a strong writer and avid reader with a Master's degree and teacher certification.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified bilingual/ESL teacher through the Texas state board for educator certification with 7 years of experience teaching bilingual/ESL classes.

Reading

In addition to being an avid reader and strong writer, I taught reading and writing for many years. I was also trained in a research based reading program by trainers from Johns Hopkins University and my students always did well on language arts measures.

STAAR

As a 20-year veteran educator with elementary and middle school experience, I have taught test preparation for many years. In addition, I have a lot of experience with taking tests in working on my bachelor's, master's and course work for principal certification.

Study Skills

Having prepared students for many different tests successfully, I am confident I can help in test preparation. In addition to working with students on test preparation, I have also run various study skills groups as a counselor. Finally, I have passed every test that I have prepared for from high school through graduate school and state certification exams.
