I instruct students in grades 5-12 in math content classes and SAT Prep in reading, writing an math. I individualize my teaching strategies based on students' existing knowledge, needs and learning style. An initial assessment of relevant topics provides me with the information necessary to target specific content, skills and strategies.
I have instructed more than 100 children, adolescents and young adults individually, in small groups and in classroom settings for over 10 years combined.Through my work, I have helped students to progress in their goals of improved comprehension of material, improved grades and test scores.

I previously worked with Jennifer, teaching social and vocational skills to individuals on the spectrum. Jennifer was a wonderful leader in helping me learn and foster my own skills in how to effectively run a group. She also was an incredibly thoughtful and empathic facilitator with our participants. She understands how to meet someone where they are, but also challenge them to help them learn and grow. I would highly recommend this person for your organization.
