Always good to work with Jennifer! Even if I'm being annoying with my verb tenses.

Jennifer is now able to describe in detail her Sunday work out practices. And rules for when her dog is allowed to lick his paws or climb on the couch.... Patience pays off! show more

I can always vouch for Jennifer's patience and for her dog's slightly crazy behavior during our Skype sessions.

Jennifer was a pleasure to work with! She gave me an excellent description of what she was looking for in my design work, and enough creative freedom have fun with it. She's also an incredibly talented artist herself, I highly recommend her for any portraiture work. Would definitely work with her again in the future!show more

In this episode of Learning French, Jennifer showed her unshakeable fierceness in the face of adversity. I sent her a podcast of French teenagers spea...king too fast and too furious about Tungsten, and she did everything she could to take an interest to the subject matter. Jokes aside, it's always a pleasure to speak with Jennifer, a dedicated language learner. show more

Jennifer not only keeps up with my unpredictable rescheduling, but also manages to drastically underestimate her level of French. I wish such a studen...t on all language teachers. show more

Jennifer put a lot of care and effort into her painting of my cat and used a blend of colors I wouldn't have even thought of! She was also very accom...modating about the delivery. She was open to making adjustments to the final product, but of course none needed to be made because it was perfect! I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting a painting, whether human or more
