About Jennifer

My greatest passion in life has been to ignite a love of learning in all of my students. As a life-long learner and achiever, I understand the incredible value of hard work and an excellent education.

I hold an M.A. in History from the University of Toronto (3.93 GPA) and a B.A. in History (magna cum laude) with a minor in Painting from the University of Texas at El Paso. My research and writing has won numerous awards, and I have presented my work to audiences in North America and Europe.

I specialize in tutoring history, social studies, English, reading, and writing for all levels. I am a certified grades 8-10 Social Studies Teacher, and have over 4 years experience in education (in the classroom teaching 10th grade World History and as a teaching assistant at the secondary and post-secondary levels).

I enjoy working with highly diverse students of all ages from all walks of life and believe deeply in student-centered differentiated instruction. I also have a great deal of experience working with special education students with learning disabilities and dyslexia.

I am generally available for tutoring every day from 9am to 9pm and can travel to students or meet them online. My base rate is $40/hour for in-person lessons and $35/hour or online lessons. I also offer lesson packages at a discount- contact me for more details!

I look forward to helping you to bring forth your very best!
