Jenny W.

Jacksonville, FL

About Jenny

I'm a lifelong student who loves learning! My passion for education has led me to pursue studies in a wide field of subjects. I have been teaching private lessons, tutoring and teaching workshops/clas
ses in a variety of subjects for nearly a decade. I have taught ages 4-65 in a variety of settings. I'm extremely adaptable.

I have also been performing improv, comedy, theatre as well as writing, storytelling and exploring creative topics my entire life. I have always had a passion for uninhibited creativity that uses a solid foundation in theory and practice. Using a practical approach to right brain activities, I am able to merge creative desires and it's practical applications in an effective and fun space that students love to explore!

Students who take my lessons walk away with not only pragmatic advice and theory but incredible confidence, passion and a desire to explore their creative subjects further.

I graduated from the University of North Florida with a degree in English. I furthered my studies with a graduate degree at Queen's University. After graduating college in 2005, I began working as an independent researcher for several non-profit and government organizations including the Florida Commission on Human Relations. My work with those organizations prepared me for a career in Academic Writing and teaching. I have an interest in a variety of subjects and have written many research papers for organizations and companies. This experience has given me the opportunity to expand my areas of knowledge and interests.

I tutor a variety of subjects including English, Reading, Writing, Test Prep, Study Skills and Acting/Theatre. I believe encouragement and support is of upmost importance. I teach with compassion and understanding, first and foremost. My lessons are customized to each individual's needs and I offer progress reports, constructive criticism and homework assignments as needed. Most importantly, I want to make sure that each lesson sees the student walking away feeling empowered, encouraged, confident and successful.

As I approach tutoring with honesty and respect, I expect my students to be held to the same standard. In this way, I encourage feedback.

I look forward to speaking with you about your goals and how I can help you achieve them!

I haven't acted in years and felt very self-conscious about getting back into it. Jenny listened to why I wanted to start again, what my ultimate goals are, and assured me she would guide me as far as she could. She made me feel at ease almost immediately, and has been the best acting coach I have ever had. When I find myself struggling with a certain character or monologue, she doesn't judge or get irritated. She knows exactly what to say and tweak to make me get it perfect. She's so supportive of where I want to go and has not made me feel like I'm aiming for something completely out of my reach. She listens and shows that she cares, not only about our lessons, but personally as well. I feel very fortunate to have found her and would not leave her for anyone else. She's guided me to alternate acting seminars, which I have registered for, and with her lessons, I feel ready to take this new opportunity on. I wouldn't have been this confident 6 weeks ago. Thanks to her, I not only feel better at acting, but I feel more confident in my every day life. I highly recommend everyone look into her classes and give her a chance. She's the best!

John was great with our 9-year old, who started chess at five, and has played on and off since. He picked up pretty quickly and started learning new moves and approached. John is very good with kids, explaining not only the rules of the game, but rationale for every play. We're very happy with the classes.

Chess · Online

It was my son's (10 years old) first time when we took a chess online with John Michael. My son learnt so much with him from their first lesson and started to share with me what he learnt right after he finished the class. (normally this is not how my kid behaves). That is not it.
My son all of the sudden wanted to learn everything in other subjects like math and had this desire to become an intelligent person. We spent the entire day indoors studying different things because he was so inspired after his chess class to grow intellectually.
First impression/experience with the subject is very crucial and I am so happy John Michael could find a way to get my kid into chess while doing it online. My son really enjoyed learning about chess and wants to continue taking classes with John Michael during the academic year as well.
John Michael is certainly very knowledgeable, processional, and has a talent to teach.

Kara taught me singing for over a year when she lived in Pennsylvania. She not only helped me with technique, but helped me find confidence in myself. Now I sing in front of my family and friends without getting so nervous.

I am very proud when they understand and learn how to solve problems on their own! I love teaching students and it is my joy when students understand and excel in the subject that they struggled with! My goal is to make sure that students fully understand the concept and is able to apply them on their own!
