I can just recommend Jennifer as an ESOL teacher. She’s been given me classes for two months. I wanted to improve my conversational skills and to feel confident in English. Jennifer is a very professional teacher. She truly listens to your needs and always sends me a detailed feedback with all my errors. She’s also a motivating a interesting woman. Not only am I improving my linguistic skills but also my cultural knowledge about the US. It’s always a pleasure to skype with her.
I met Jennifer through a friend who had ESL classes with her some months ago. She told me that Jennifer was the best teacher she´d ever had. So, I hired her to help my son improve his English and get a better score on the TOEFL test. We had just moved from Brazil to the USA and my son only had a few days to study and prepare for the test. Jennifer did a very good job with him.
After that nice experience, I decided to have intensive private classes with her. During that time, I could see what a good teacher she is because she has a tremendous amount of knowledge of what she is teaching. She also has the ability to pass it on to her students in an effective way because she knows the process of learning a new language.
I believe Jennifer was born to teach ESL students, as she is an open-minded person and likes to not only teach but also learn from her students.
I am from France and Jennifer is the best English teacher I’ve ever had!!! We communicate mainly by emails and she always answers very rapidly to my emails, gives me very useful tips, and helps me to have the best English essays I can (as English is not my first language)! She cares a lot about her students and is very professional. Highly, highly, highly recommend.
Jennifer is excellent with people. She loves helping others learn while acknowledging that she is also learning from them. Her teaching style is learner-centered. She gets to know her students and makes lesson plans that meet their specific needs. She loves what she does. Jennifer has worked with students from many countries. She is culturally sensitive and eager to create an environment of respect and a love for learning. I watched Jennifer grow from a new teacher who learned the ropes by taking risks to a professional in her field who helps students to improve their language skills and supports teachers in developing their instructional skills. She is among the very best of the hundreds of teachers whom I have trained, observed, and supervised over the years. Students love her, and her classes are really fun!
