Jenn says: Hi, my name is Jenn and I am excited to be working with Boston Tutoring Services! I am a dog mom to a boxer named Henley and we both love the beach! You can find us there year round, either soaking up the sun or collecting sea glass! I have been teaching for over 11 years in both general education and special education. Some of my career highlights are writing a tiered intervention program for a school district and running it, becoming certified as a Special Education Director, creating curriculum, needing to complete 1 more year for my PhD, and working with one of the toughest populations of students. I chose the education field because my mother was a teacher and I had a brother with special needs. I saw the challenges and struggles that my family faced with my brother and I wanted to change that for future generations. My philosophy of education is to ensure that every student has an opportunity to receive a quality education, regardless of learning styles or disabilities. Open communication is incredibly important as it shows we are a team together. I look forward to working with your family!”
