About Jennifer


Bio

I am a licensed math and science teacher, and have experience with students with special needs, especially ADHD and dyslexia. I have worked with sixth grade through adult. I currently do math intervention with a local school district.

My objective with most students is to make them self-reliant learners, and gain the confidence they need to be successful in college and beyond. I adapt my approach to the individual student's learning style, and expect my students to prepare for our sessions....

I am a licensed math and science teacher, and have experience with students with special needs, especially ADHD and dyslexia. I have worked with sixth grade through adult. I currently do math intervention with a local school district.

My objective with most students is to make them self-reliant learners, and gain the confidence they need to be successful in college and beyond. I adapt my approach to the individual student's learning style, and expect my students to prepare for our sessions.

I have helped many young people prepare for their ACT, SAT and GMAT tests, and provide guidance to help them make the most of their time when preparing for the test. I consider myself more of the coach, but the students really need to do the "heavy lifting" in order to achieve their goals.

As a teacher of middle and high school students, I am quite aware of the need for students to develop organizational skills and habits that will benefit them now and into future careers. Many of my students have special needs, including ADHD and dyslexia. There are many physical changes that we can make with our students to encourage better compliance with the need to complete work and perform at their best, and positive behavioral to provide reinforcement of good choices. Each child is unique, and needs to learn to manage his or her own learning in context.

ACT Math

I use very targeted instruction with my students. Using a full diagnostic ACT test, we carefully select specific content to master. If we need to refresh plane geometry, but algebra is relatively strong, we really hone in on the geometry, especially because we know that there will be 14 questions out of 60 on plane geometry on the test! We also discuss testing strategies. The ACT test is one of the most consistent tests ever designed, and understanding how the test is constructed and how to "read between the lines" can be quite valuable, especially if your student is not a good test taker. I maintain an online library of materials that are available to my students at no charge. Students who are motivated to work on their own should not be penalized. It saves time, and can save you money.

I completed all sections of the Praxis 1 test, with a perfect score in math, near-perfect in reading, and earned a 5.5 of a possible 6 on the writing portion. I have also taken two of the Praxis 2 tests, math and general science. I scored in the top 10% in science, earning me a Certificate of Excellence from ETS.

Very patient and insightful tutor

Jennifer is helping my daughter with pre-calculus. She is reviewing topics and areas she needed work with. She is also showing my daughter that she knows more than she gives herself credit for which helps to boost her confidence.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jennifer really connected with my son and explained the problems in a way he could understand and relate to. Highly recommend her.

It worked!

Jennifer helped my daughter catch up on homework and showed her how to get more information to complete an assignment when there wasn't enough given to complete assignments. Thank you Jennifer.

Cindy, 2 lessons with Jennifer

Great Tutor! Overall excellent experience!

The girls have really benefited from meeting with Jennifer to prep for the ACT -- she has been a great resource and the experience is so much more personalized for their needs. I would recommend Jennifer - and if we ever have a need again will certainly request her!
