About this tutor

We were recognized in 2015 as Top in the State of Texas Among Its Industry (tutoring industry). I, the owner, have been recognized in 2011 as "The youngest successful entrepreneur in the country," in 2003 as "National Scholar for scholarly writing," in 2002 for being in "The Top 3% of the Nation Among American High School Students" for academics, in 2003 for being in "The Top 3% of the Nation Among American High School Students" for leadership, and continue to be recognized among the top in the country repetitively to this day. 

My company has inspired many due to being special needs myself while being a national leader. I tell students of all ages, "If I have my autism, epilepsy, and other disabilities, yet I have made it this far, how can you tell me you cannot be successful? What makes you think you cannot . . . " (fill it with their goal or dream) 

While math is my favorite to teach, I am an author by profession as well. My books are on places like Amazon as well as my bookstore www.booksandmorebyJenniferAWhitaker.com which allows me to be an inspiration to future authors, poets, bloggers etc. 

My business is unique because we will assess the student on the first day, determine his/her learning style, and the exact area where he/she is weak/short. Then, we will design a custom lesson plan to address the "roots" of his/her struggle using the teaching method best fit for his/her learning style. 

Teaching material the kid already knows wastes parents' time and money, bores the kid out of their mind and just is not worth it. Using a teaching method that is not fit for the learning style is like teaching an English speaker in Spanish. It is foreign and beyond their ability to understand. Let us teach you in your language the material you need help understanding . . Embrace that A+ce!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to start with an in-person, or first-time online tutoring session, assessment. I will watch the kid try the problems, or kind of task, note where he struggles, try teaching, and do various other things in the time to determine 1) learning style, 2) exact areas of weakness. 

I will use that to design a custom lesson plan to address the "roots" of his struggle teaching in the way fit to his learning style. I like to assign homework/extra work so they can learn it better by practicing it the right way. I require kids to take notes, which sometimes has ended up being the reason for his struggle, not the academic itself. I help in other ways based on my findings in the assessment and talking to parents/adult students to ultimately create the best plan for that individual. No such thing as "one fits all."

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My rate is generally $35-$45 an hour. I only meet students at certain public settings in Katy, or online. 

Occasionally, I will meet elsewhere, which is rare, but it will require a travel fee that is the equivalent of an uber ride to the location and back. 

As far as prices, the assessment is the same rate as the regular tutoring would/will be. There is not a difference in them so if it fits the parents' budget, any help will be affordable. 


How did you get started teaching?

I was in high school, in 10th grade, in special education courses because of what was decades later found to be high function autism, and PTSD, but was in the Top 3% of the Nation in academics. My special education teachers started sending me every Friday to the elementary school to teach the elementary special education students. They thought the best teachers/tutor/motivators for special education kids were those who, like me, were ones themselves and successful. I fell in love with it. 


What types of students have you worked with?

SPECIAL EDUCATION:
-high function autism

-epileptics

-ADD/ADHD

-Dyslexics 

-anxiety

-maybe more I do not recall

GENERAL POPULATION:
-adults student and none student learners (computer skills, job training, GED, getting into formal training, college courses etc)

-K-12 grades and ages

-youngest of 2 years old (count, word site, colors etc)

-high school dropouts (college, GED, etc)

-new hires (job training)


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Step 1) Read everything you can about him/her or the company

Step 2) Check reviews or other places on the web to see what others have said about him/her or the company

Step 3) Ask the tutor questions you already know the answer and test what they say, to be honest, and knowledged -think of it as a test, if they fail this one, how do you know what they teach that you do not know will be accurate? (rather lack of knowledge or dishonesty it is not what you are after) 

Step 4) try them out but on the first day pay attention to/ask about what they noticed, their plan of action, how involved they want to be with the parent (such as keeping parents updating on what happens and kids' progress) are they passionate. . etc

TIP: THe best tutors/teachers are passionate about what they do and go the extra mile without additional pay or other motivation/reason. It is not unusual for those that are the best have credentials in other areas. Anyone's strongest area, with or without formal training, is where they are passionate/care. The more someone cares about something is the more they will want to learn and improve about/at it.
