I have taught writing for over five years and love to teach it because writing is my passion. I have written several award winning screenplays and work also work as a freelance writer. I have helped students write college essays which have helped them get into their first choice, graduate students with their research papers on psychology, nursing and business as well as young students writing some of their first creative essays... and everything in between.

Best experience! My son who is on 6th grade had to take the SSAT in a short period of time and Chris got him engaged from the first class, not easy for an online class. He was easy to communicate and was open to work with our schedule. Thanks for all the work you did!

Great Algebra tutor! Chris was tutoring my daughter in algebra. He picked up very quickly to see where her weakness is. He is very patient and takes his time in making sure my daughter gets it done. Excellent tutor.

Having to sit down and write a paper (whether it be your college thesis or a five paragraph essay for an elementary level English course) can be an intimidating and stressful if not overwhelming experience.

That's where I come in...To help you with both the assignment you are currently working on as well your writing process in general. Working on strengthening how you write will make writing easier and easier each time you do it, until you don't need my help at all.

Many people are not aware of the universal strategies and tactics that can be used in order to improve their writing at every stage in the process. Whether it be brainstorming, outlining, drafting, writing, editing, etc. Taking at look at and examining your writing process together will allow us to customize the tutoring session for your needs specifically.

Outside of helping to write papers I can assist with help in English grammar, Literature, Creative Writing, and many other related fields.

I have extensive experience helping students develop effective writing and library research skills, including implementation of APA Style. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective. The retrospective study centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. My writing and research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

Researching a paper for school?
Preparing for an essay on a big test?
Trying to tell the story that's inside you?
Organizing information for an annual report?

Getting thoughts from your head to the paper is hard work, and can often be a very frustrating process - but as an author, I can assure you that organizing your ideas and having a final project you're proud of is incredibly rewarding.

I'll work with you to make sure you're communicating in just the right way. If you're working on a specific project, I can help you make it better starting anywhere in the process. Or if you're looking to generally improve your writing, I'll give you assignments every week to help. We'll look at your grammar; structure; syntax; theme; and many more aspects of writing that will make your writing stand out.

I published my first book, The Crown of Secrets, in 2016. I've taught academic and creative writing at Hebei Normal University in China; reviewed books, movies, and music at my own ...

I'm Iris, one of Jer's students in Hebei Normal University for two years. He taught us oral English, practical writing and lexicology.
Attending his classes were my favorite time during the week! He is patient, energetic and funny. I miss his so much and wish him could teach us for another year. I rarely met teachers who can make full use of the class time and make it colourful and interesting but he is one of them. He combined the western teaching methods with his creativity, including presentations, research papers, teamwork projects and games, which helped me a lot for my study abroad. Apart from work, he is also a good friend who gave me a lot of courage on my study. Thank to him I love English more!
Kukjin
I am not a native English speaker and my English is not great. I like public speaking, but when I made a speech in English, I couldn't get confidence and was nervous a bit.
But after he helped me, I got a first prize in an English speech competition. If he didn't help me, I wouldn't get the prize. He is good at listening, and easily figures out what student wants to say in their own speech. He corrected wrong grammar and speech tone for me, And also he gave a lot of advice about my speech structure and communicating skills and humorous part. I strongly recommend him as your great speech teacher!
If you want to find a good listener, and a speech teacher who gives good advice, choose him.

I have a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics with a minor in Psychology. I graduated summa cum laude. I also have special teaching licenses in TEFL and TESOL. I have been tutoring for 15+ years all grade levels and subjects, Mathematics, Sciences, Social Studies, and Language Arts. In my experience, no two students are alike, and I'm able to identify unique needs, to help each student progress. Students find me patient, kind and fun to work with. Regarding ESL tutoring, I have a deep understanding of the science and research behind the way English as a second language is learned. I also train teachers on state-adopted ESL materials, so I have access to great resources. I love technology and enjoy using it as a tool for my work. I'm flexible and can adapt to the way each individual student learns best.

My greatest passion in life is teaching. I have experienced great success in my academics, due to amazing and unforgettable teachers. This is the foundation of my commitment ...

Spectacular and Recommended Tutor!
Jennifer tutored my daughter for the ACT. The results were nothing short of spectacular. Jennifer is incredibly smart, has a lovely disposition with parents and students, is prompt and communicative, and most importantly, clearly knows what she is doing. She is strategic in every aspect of her tutoring for the ACT, which is exactly what we needed and what hooked my daughter into the plan. She never complained about the tutoring sessions -- she saw the value immediately. Result: 7 point composite increase with 6-8 point improvement in every test area! To give you context to determine how your own student might fare, my daughter is highly intelligent, takes every AP class she can, and is very "coachable," so she started the tutoring with a lot of potential. However, she was not into studying for the test at all (SAT, same thing) and generally performs below her ability on standardized tests due to text anxiety. When push came to shove, she saw that her scores were below what she needed for her first choice college. With only three weeks to study before her last chance to improve her scores, she began to work with Jennifer. Jennifer tutored my daughter for a total of about 18 hours and gave her practice assignments. She zeroed in strategically on the types of questions that were the most problematic for her and explained, for example, that if she had just known a certain skill, she would have gotten 8 questions correct and thereby improved her score by 3 points (numbers estimated from memory). That approach drew my daughter in right away and it worked! I highly recommend Jennifer. She was worth every minute and every penny.
Steven
EXCEPTIONAL tutor!! Patient! Thorough! Highly Knowledgeable!
Jennifer consistently shows up for our daughter's online sessions with a bright, warm smile that immediately puts our daughter's nerves at ease. Jennifer patiently and skillfully untangled the complicated problems that had befuddled our daughter, and replaced her insecurity with clarity and confidence! Jennifer tamed the big "Math monster", replacing it with a manageable "math puppy"! Over the last 6 months, Jennifer was able to explain and demystify difficult math concepts, increasing our daughter's confidence and competence with every session! Before beginning sessions with Jennifer, our daughter had set the bar low, wishing only to "pass" her math classes with an acceptable grade, in order to complete her college career. However, by week eight of tutoring, with soaring confidence and new-found math proficiency, our daughter not only passed her final summer math class, but earned an "A" , finishing at the TOP of her class! This would not have been possible without the extraordinary skillfulness, expert teaching abilities and patience that Jennifer brings in her masterful "tool chest." She speaks the "language of math" in a way that crystallizes its concepts for her students! She is an extraordinary teacher and an absolute gift to her students!!
Stephanie
Highly Recommended!!!!!!!
Jennifer has been tutoring our daughter for over 2 years in ESL. Our daughter loves Jennifer, she is very knowledgeable, straight to the point, very clear with her explanations, and helps her a lot with grasping some concepts that are unclear for her. Jennifer is always willing to accommodate my schedule and willing to make extra time for my daughter when she needed it. She’s very patient and truly wants her students to succeed! My only regret is that we had not found Jennifer earlier!

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
