Jennifer S. of Scottsdale AZ USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Jennifer S.
Gender: Female   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I've been in business for myself as a private tutor for the past three years, and have successfully served over 50 clients, across all age levels and subject areas.
My tutoring experience over the past years has included recent work as an independently contracted tutor as well. I trained with Teach For America and taught 5th grade in Brooklyn, NY, where I learned to lesson plan, assess, and teach in accordance with state standards, as well as how to encourage creative learning in multiple styles. I worked at a higher level as a Writing Tutor for UC Berkeley for three years.

My style is open, communicative, and feed-back oriented. It incorporates humor, analogies, and engaging learning; I believe my job is to help guide a student toward academic independence and success. The strategies and skills I use are frequently transferable from one subject to the next. Above all, I enjoy helping others develop a love for learning by making education more accessible and enjoyable.
