Hi everyone. My name is Jennifer, and if you read my profile, you will get to know a lot about me and my teaching philosophy. I have been teaching since 1997, but have been out of the classroom since my husband went to Iraq. I have been subbing for the past 3 years, and have worked at a tutoring learning center. I enjoyed the one on one so much that I decided that I would love to work with more students without being told what or how I have to teach. I believe that it is important for a tutor to figure out how their student learns so that they are able to help them learn the best way for them. Not all students learn the same.
One suggestion that I have made to my current clients, which the parents have agreed with, is that I believe that having tutoring sessions in the students’ home is a source of distraction. I know that when my son comes home from school, the last thing that he wants to do is “study” or do homework. He wants to play, relax, and spend time with family and friends. I have been meeting my students at a library. If the client is not close to where I live, we usually find a library that is between the both of us. This has so far worked well for us.
I am looking forward to building my clientele, but more importantly I am looking forward to helping as many students as I can learn and get where they need to be in their learning. If you are looking for a tutor, I hope that you will consider trying me out.
