- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
I have been teaching and tutoring since 1996. I have worked with students in areas of writing, internet research, and public speaking. I was also a school teacher for several years, and was very effective in teaching reading through phonics and site words, using real life situations such as creative expression through writing and dialog to make learning more meaningful.
My approach to tutoring is collaborative with the student, regardless of age or academic level. Writing and critical thinking skills are developed by brainstorming, drafting, and identifying opportunities to construct thoughts into meaningful written contact. I keep tutoring fresh and interesting, gradually introducing higher level concepts (i.e. figurative language) as the tutoring process becomes more advanced.
In addition to teaching and tutoring experience, I have also worked as an Administrative Assistant over the years. This gave me the opportunity to learn the Microsoft Office Suite, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I teach these as well, as they relate to helping students with the writing and organizational process.
Tutor individuals in reading and writing areas, including individuals with cognitive and/or physical disabilities. Areas include beginning reading, composition, organizational skills, and writing.
I have a certification as a personal development life coach.
We engaged Jennifer to assist my brother Gary in improving his reading skills. She was patient with him, and helped to motivate him as he worked diligently to improve his reading skills. Thank you Jennifer for a very positive experience.
I have a business website for my pet grooming service. Jennifer helped me devise content for the site that gets my message across effectively and succinctly. She helped me determine what really needs to be said vs. what might look nice, but that might be redundant. I was able to shorten my draft without losing any quality of content.+ Read More
