Jennifer Smith earned her bachelor’s degrees in music and elementary education as well as a master’s degree in elementary mathematics. She has spent years in the classroom setting as well as homeschooling her own children. Her dream of working with students one-on-one became a reality when she started Exceed in Learning and is excited to continue helping each child reach their potential. One of Jennifer’s main passions is how to teach kids to read. A systematic approach to phonics is vital for children to understand how phonemes are combined to create words. This passion is what ignites her desire to teach, write and help others who teach reading.
