About Jennifer


Bio

Hi there, my name is Jennifer D. and I currently reside with my family in a suburb outside of Houston, TX. I recently retired from the classroom after 28 years in public education, teaching both junior high and high school math classes, both on-level and advanced levels. Although I retired from the classroom, I did not retire from my love of teaching my students. Throughout my 28 years of teaching, I have also privately tutored outside of the classroom for over 10 years. I take great pride...

Hi there, my name is Jennifer D. and I currently reside with my family in a suburb outside of Houston, TX. I recently retired from the classroom after 28 years in public education, teaching both junior high and high school math classes, both on-level and advanced levels. Although I retired from the classroom, I did not retire from my love of teaching my students. Throughout my 28 years of teaching, I have also privately tutored outside of the classroom for over 10 years. I take great pride in my profession, and I treat each student as an individual situation. As a classroom teacher, my students' passing percentage on their standardized tests have been some of the highest on the campus.

While I respect and appreciate all that teachers do in their classroom on a daily basis, I know first hand that it can be difficult to reach every student, every day. Many times teachers and schools have differentiated classrooms and extended tutoring hours, but outside factors sometimes get in the way of an effective session. I consider tutoring to be en extension of the classroom, and welcome any resources that might be available. When I set up a tutoring session, I know that between my student and myself, we have 100% of each other’s attention. One of my most recent tutoring students came to me failing Algebra (Advanced level) towards the end of the Fall semester. We were able to recover his understanding and pass the semester with a low B, and by the end of the Spring semester he had achieved an A.

I have an MEd from Lamar University and a Mathematics degree from Texas A&M University. As a teacher or tutor, I strive to develop my lessons so that each student feels comfortable with right and wrong answers, has a way to comprehend the concepts and be able to accomplish the necessary written tasks at hand...with a positive outcome. Since math classes all build on the previous class, I know too well how important it is to learn the concepts, and be able to make the connections between them. I like to use the knowledge/experiences that I’ve encountered over my past years in the classroom to format tips, tricks, and procedures to allow the students to be successful. I will often find an outside way to explain or demonstrate a topic so that my students can apply the knowledge without thinking in math terms...because for so many, the "math part" of a problem is the whole problem. In addition, when going through concepts, I like to double check to ensure the student is actually comprehending and making the necessary connections.

I want to benefit the students that I work with as much as possible, so I welcome any resources or comments that either the students or parents might have. I look forward to hearing from you. I am easy to reach, and will respond as quickly as possible. Please don’t let the numbers get the best of you! Let me help you to help yourself.
