After mastering many new learning techniques required for the various courses Jennifer completed, she found that with an understanding of her learning style she was able to excel at any subject in which she put forth effort. This discovery is what led to her passion for teaching and tutoring. It was in graduate school that she also began student teaching, and was able to realize how much her insights were able to empower other students. Most importantly, as each student is unique, so too are her lessons. Jennifer tailors each lesson towards the individual student, from her examples to the teaching methods employed. Her love for learning continues, as she completes new college courses each year. She also routinely takes standardized tests to gain alternative strategies on how to solve questions. She teaches a variety of standardized tests tests and her unique mix of preparation, customization, and improvisation allow for her to be an extremely successful tutor who is ready to enable each student to surpass his or her goals.
