Hello! My name is Miss Jenn. I have been tutoring personally and professionally for 30 years. I have been a teacher for 4 years. I have taught online, in private sessions, and in a classroom. I have taught students at all skill levels and all ages. I excel at working with students who have difficulty learning in a traditional classroom setting. I have worked with students who have learning disabilities, executive functioning disorders, and disciplinary problems. My teaching style is relaxed, student driven, and sometimes silly. Education is hard work, but that doesn't mean it can't be fun.

I have my B.S. in English/Writing from Towson University and my TEFL certification from Bridge. I also completed the Teaching IELTS Preparation course at Premier TEFL.

Come and join me! We will explore the English language and have a good time doing it.

Understanding

Jennifer did a great job of giving me positive enforcement. I have dyslexia and that makes it hard for me to express myself in writing language. But when she asked a question and I explained it to her she was able to help me put it into words on paper that flowed and convene my idea.

Mariko, 3 lessons with Jennifer
Tutor responded:

Thank you so much for your kind words. You had such great ideas to express; I was happy to help you put them into words.

Knowledgeable and patient

My son has autism and ADHD. Ms Jennifer is patient and know how to phase with him. We will certainly call her again when my son needs a refresher or a prep for a coming exam.

I'm glad that you are both happy. I really enjoyed working with your son. I hope to see him again.

Best for common English

Jenifer has a nice personality. She is a good teacher for young people and those who seek normal everyday Englash to learn. She is on time and wills to work everything out.

Thank you so much! I appreciate the kind words.

Great writing tutor.

Jennifer is working with my 8th grader on writing. She has been great! They are working on how to get ideas from her head onto the paper, as well as paragraph and sentence structure. Would highly recommend Jennifer.
