"I specialize in making concepts clear and meaningful by adapting my tutoring to each student's individual learning style. I use many hands-on materials and provide concise notes pages to give the learner the tools to be able remember and apply the material we have worked on. I also tailor the tutoring to each learner's experiences. A first-grader learning to read, a middle-schooler struggling with algebra, a high school student preparing for SAT's, and an adult learner heading back to college have very different needs. What makes me unique is that I meet each and every student at HIS/HER own level. I tutor in my home, in Palm Harbor (off Tampa Rd., near Belcher). I have converted the front part of my home into a tutoring studio, where I provide a quiet, distraction-free, positive learning environment with many hands-on materials and other resources. I see clients six days/week (Sundays - Fridays), and have appointments available from 9:30 AM - 9:30 PM. I offer sessions that are 1, 1.5, or 2 hours in length. Tutoring starts at $40/hour, but can be as little as $29/ hour, depending on the length of the sessions and the payment plan you choose. I am a state and Montessori certified teacher, with 20 years of experience teaching and tutoring students (from preschoolers to adults) in a variety of settings. I know how important it is that students (and parents) feel comfortable with a tutor. I would be happy to meet with you, with no pressure or obligation, to make sure that you feel that it would be a good match, and to develop a customized tutoring plan with you. I can also send you a list of references and links to recent background checks. Tutoring Available In: * MATH: basic math through geometry and algebra 2 (at any age) * language: all levels / ages: grammar, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary * TEST PREP: SAT, ACT, ASVAB, GED, FTCE, GRE, GMAT, TEAS, PAX, LSAT, CPT, accuplacer, and other tests * science: biology and chemistry * special needs: dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, processing delays * OTHER: study and organization skills, public speaking, college admissions counseling" less...

I spoke with Jennifer on the phone and she was great! The travel distance was just too long so we did not proceed!
