Jennifer assisted my 11th grade son with SAT Prep during this past April and May. The experience was absolutely invaluable and we highly recommend her services to other families. Prior to finding Seeds of Knowledge, my son had never been a terrific test taker; we were all feeling very anxious about the SAT. Jennifer immediately put us at ease. After reviewing the results of my sons first SAT test, she tailored her program to specifically address his needs and particular areas of weakness. She provided many test-taking tips and strategies which bolstered my sons overall attitude and confidence. Working together for two hours, twice weekly, Jennifer covered a tremendous amount of material in a relatively short period of time; not a moment was wasted! The homework assigned between each session was meaningful, yet not overwhelming. Throughout my sons sessions with Jennifer, he remained highly motivated and positive. Thanks to Jennifer, my son increased his SAT scores by 300 points! Never, in my wildest dreams would I have expected such outstanding results which are bound to impact my sons prospects in terms of college admissions. I definitely know who to call when it is time for my 14-year-old daughter to prepare for the SAT!
Outstanding job, worked with us through the entire process and was very conscientious about about the time spent on the project. Will continue our relationship with them.
I am Asian, living in the States more than 15 years, and I always wanted to get rid of my accent. I took thirteen hours of private sessions a few years ago. Ms. Hoodwin had nice, easy to understand material for me to work with, and was very patient, kind and professional. In just thirteen hours of her sessions, I learned so much. No one else corrected or even pointed out the things I was saying wrong, or the words that were hard for natives to understand. I would never have known how to correct it on my own without her working with me step by step. I am so glad that I took her sessions. Now, I am more confident and don't have to hesitate to say anything. I am hardly questioned "What did you say?" anymore!! It doesn't matter what level you are at, I know that Ms. Hoodwin can help anyone who has an accent.
I help people to improve their American accent while learning to speak confidently in English.
I have been a practicing speech/language pathologist for 28 years. I was raised in a military family and have been exposed to a multitude of cultures and accents. I have a "talent" for adopting any accent of anyone with whom I am speaking. I, therefore, am able to easily design a plan to assist individuals in decreasing their accent and increase speech intelligibility.
I have a Ph.D. in the field of cross-language speech perception and am certified by the Institute of Language and Phonology to deliver accent reduction services using the Compton-PESL method. I also have experience in the area of pediatric speech and language disorders and worked in the public schools for many years prior to receiving my certification in accent reduction. I also have trained and supervised graduate students in this field at the University of South Florida Speech Language and Hearing Clinic and continue to teach at the University level.
