Jennifer's Bio & Tutoring Experience
Knowledge is power. Knowledge enhances our freedom to choose- what kind of person do I want to be? what type of career do I want to pursue? do I want to go to college? what am I good at? what do I believe in?
The pursuit of knowledge begins with having access to information, and then understanding and applying that information. This is where the tutoring services that I offer becomes valuable. I will not only assist your child or student in completing an assignment or passing a class; I will help him/her develop critical thinking skills, explore the subject matter further, unlock educational interests, and discover his/her potential.
With a strong background in writing, research, and literature, I will help your student tackle that tough essay or research paper. I will direct her on the proper use of citations and references. I will help him decipher the poetry or prose assignment and develop a profound response to it.
If your student is facing a nerve-racking presentation or public speaking assignment, I will coach him on everything from what to do with his body and hands to the organization and delivery of the speech (and give him a few tips on how to calm his nerves and entertain his audience). Years of speech and debate classes and public speaking have honed my skills and enjoyment of presentations.
I also have a strong foundational knowledge of mathematics. Although I will never be a mathematician, I can still help your student navigate those tricky equations and formulas and offer a fun approach to an otherwise mundane or frustrating subject.
Science is an exciting field to learn and explore. The evidence of science is all around us, making it easy to find examples that demonstrate and clarify the theory or subject matter for your student, and find ways to apply the information to our world today.
Lastly, the study of humanity and societies is a particular favorite of mine. Psychology, sociology, political science, government, history; I will help your student see how they are all connected and understand how each piece affects the others, and us.
As I work with your student, I will create an environment where learning is fun, where no question is unwelcome or stupid, and where your student's brain can stretch and expand into any avenue of interest. The tutoring services I offer will help your student access, understand, and apply information, developing not only a well-rounded education, but also a person who is actively thinking, making connections, and increasing awareness of herself and the world. Your student will find that with the increase of knowledge comes more success and more freedom to choose his life path. Knowledge is power.
