Tutoring for Success, Academic and Leadership
My name is Jennifer and I am passionate not only about teaching, but the tutoring experience! I have been a tutor since 2003 (over ten years and thousands of hours of experience) working with families of students ranging between preschool to adult in age. I have helped dozens of students in the following subject areas: math, reading, writing, grammar, spelling, science, history, study skills, Spanish, prealgebra, and algebra to name a few. I have a teaching degree from Oakland Univ…
Adria W. from Walled Lake, MI I had selected three tutors to try out for my very first tutoring session ever. Jennifer was the first one to respond to my emails and set up a time to meet. From the first day/session I had with her, we clicked and I knew she was going to be my tutor! Jennifer is a wonderful person who wants to make sure you, the student, are understanding your material. I never had a problem trying to contact her, whether it was by phone or by email, she always responded. I have always struggled with math my entire life and have never been able to pull above a C in class. I was horrible on exams, I didn't know how to study and would attempt the homework and then just push it aside when I couldn't figure something out. After the first few meetings with Jennifer, I felt more confident with my homework. The more we met on a regular basis, the more I was able to understand my homework and improve on my test scores. The biggest accomplishment for me was actually passing my math courses with B's!! I was so excited!! Jennifer helped me through 2 semesters of college math for elementary teachers and I hope to be able to use her in the future too. I would highly recommend Jennifer to any of my family, friends or even strangers! I can't thank her enough for helping me...I'm proud to say, I was even able to help my friend the other day with stuff I learned last winter without having to look it up!!
Loraine M. from White Lake, MI Jennifer S. was very patient while tutoring my son with algebra. She made sure he understood each problem and also reinforced needed strategies. My son said he liked her as a tutor, and that she cleared some things up that he didn't understand.
Christopher L. from Troy, MI Jennifer has tutored my grandson who has adhd for several weeks. I am very pleased and proud to say that he just passed his test, and I credit this accomplishment to Jennifer's tutoring. My grandson asked if he could continue with his tutoring sessions until he leaves for bootcamp. Of course I said yes. Thank you, a happy grandma.
John C. from White Lake, MI Jennifer has been working with my daughter for several months now. Her grades have improved including Geometry! She also has more confidence in her academic abilities. Jennifer did a good job at determining her needs and defining a plan. Jennifer has established a positive and motivational relationship with her. We look forward to continuing the tutoring experience with Jennifer and highly recommend her to others.
Cindy K. from Ortonville, MI I found Jennifer S. through Wyzant.com in a search to help my son with studying for the ASVAB. My son has ADHD and learning disabilities in reading and comprehension. A steep task for anyone to take on. I was impressed with Jennifer's eagerness and willingness to assist my son. She never seemed overwhelmed at undertaking the task of helping him get ready for his ASVAB exam. She was very diligent in finding a tutoring time that worked well with my son's schedule. During the first two weeks of tutoring, she was able to teach my son ways of reading and getting to the answers correctly, in a way he's never learned during his school career. He is a senior in high school right now. When he came to Jennifer, he had taken a "practice" test for the ASVAB and scored very low. After 10 tutoring sessions he took the test again and scored much higher! He will be taking the real test in August. I have no doubt that without Jennifer's help, he would not have raised his score so high. I have also seen an improvement in his grades in school by applying what Jennifer has taught him. I wish I would have found her sooner. My son was always willing to go to tutoring and always said how nice she was, and helpful. He really enjoyed it (or he would have wanted to quit, he's 17!) Also, Jennifer was always great about posting her comments after each session, keeping me informed of the progress they were making. I know Jennifer tutors in many subjects and I can tell you from experience, she is fantastic! If you're in her area and have a child with a specific need, you can't go wrong with hiring her to assist. I can't say thank you enough to her! She truly cares about the success of the student she is teaching, and it shows!
John T. from Waterford, MI I found Mrs. Jennifer last spring while my daughter was preparing for a comprehensive Math Test. With Jennifer?s help my daughter was able to pass the arduous exam for acceptance to a selective high school! Jennifer even went to the school with me to look at previous exams; by doing this Jennifer was able to see the specific areas of math that would be on the exam. My daughter likes Jennifer so much we have continued to use her through the summer. She is doing a wonderful job helping my daughter with her Math skills, and overall academic skills. She is also very reliable and flexible in her scheduling of sessions. My wife and I are very happy that we found Jennifer. Jennifer is an excellent educator!

Gale M. from Commerce Township, MI Jennifer has been working with my daughter for a couple of months and I am very pleased with the results. My daughter has ADD and has struggled in science all year. Jennifer has helped her improve her grade and has been more than willing to do whatever will help my daughter succeed. She even met with my daughter's science teacher. I can't say enough nice things about Jennifer. She is a blessing. I only wish I would have found her sooner!
