"High School to College Biology"
I have worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 20+ years and have taught high school biology for 4 years.
I love working with students, especially one-on-one. It's so much more rewarding when you can help a student grasp the material and make a real connection with it. ... ... More
My 7 year old son has worked with Jennifer for six months. Despite being bright, he couldn't master phonemic awareness and phonics through his instruction at school alone. He felt stupid and avoided books at all costs. Now he has begun to read proudly and states that 'Journal Time' is his favorite activity at school. He walks down the hallway with his nose buried in a book!
What helped immeasurably was Jennifer T's ability to pinpoint instruction to his exact level. She scaffolded lessons so that he was always successful and encouraged him to stretch to the next level. She provides him with games, activities, physical touch cues and even dance moves to help him master phonemic awareness! He has so much fun, he wants to go to tutoring (and this is a very active little boy!). She has provided me with resources to better my own understanding and consistently provides us activities and materials to help us at home.
I am an educator myself and felt helpless that I could not help my own child learn to read. We needed an expert and feel blessed we found one. Best of all, my son found not only a teacher but also a cheerleader and a friend.

This was my first time using a tutor from this site and I am very happy with the outcome. My son was prepping for the asvab test and the recruiter suggested we get him a tutor. After speaking with Steven, he came over for a consultation just to ensure that my son would be comfortable with him and that he could provide what my son needed. After the initial visit Steven came every week and provided my son with a lesson plan to work on throughout the week. This lasted for about a month and a half. My son took the practice asvab test and his score improved over 30 points! The recruiter was impressed. He's scheduled to take the asvab and I have no doubt that he will do great. Steven did a great job with providing the tools that he would need to pass the test and I would most definitely recommend Steven!
