About Jennifer

I have a Master of Education degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), along with a Commonwealth of Virginia Teaching License for ESL, grades k - 12. I have taught ESL for seven years, working with every age from kindergarten through college level. I love watching my students gain confidence and develop skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.

I have taught 5th grade math for four years in classrooms consisting of ESL and native English-speaking students. Many students come to my class with limited math abilities, so I have taught everything from single-digit addition to multi-step word problems with fractions.

Many of my students also read below grade level and I adapt my instruction to meet their needs. My reading lessons focus on vocabulary development, phonics, sight words, fluency, and comprehension. Many of my students advance their reading level by 1.5 to 2 grade levels in one school year

I am available on weekdays, beginning on June 27.

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.

Phonics

I have a Master of Education degree and 6 years of experience teaching reading to ESL, special education, and general education children. My training includes Fundations, Jan Richardson, and Leveled Literacy Intervention. I adapt instruction to meet my students' needs, but my methods include: daily practice of vowels and sounds, name activities, word sorts, sound boxes, analogy charts, and total physical response.
