I can help your child to become a stronger and more confident reader.

I believe that reading should be fun. If a child loves to read then there’s no limit to what they can learn and discover. Therefore my lessons are engaging and designed to resonate with the student.

I also believe that building confidence is a priority. I can help students improve their reading comprehension skills without overwhelming them.

I've worked with elementary school students since 2015. My style teaching style is compassionate and friendly.

About Jennifer N.

Words create worlds and that is why communication is so important. After all, it's how we relate to one another, and it’s how we accomplish our goals.

I bring forth my gifts into the world with my work as a writer, English language coach, curriculum developer, and reading tutor. I like to incorporate personal development and practical skills into whatever I am teaching. Whether it's ESL, reading, writing or life skills - I try to bring home the message that healthy communication (both with ourselves and with others) is very important.

I have a B.A. in Journalism with a minor in Spanish. I am TESOL certified and I'm currently enrolled in a Master's of Education program. I am a mindfulness practitioner and lifelong learner.

My Teaching Philosophy

Everyone has gifts and talents that they bring to the table. Some find these gifts easily and others don’t. But the key is that we all need to be taught in a way that reflects our internal needs. When learning is centered around the learner, then miracles happen. My job is to guide people to their own inner genius.
