All of Jennifer’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Jennifer’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Accounting

I serve as Assistant Treasurer for the League of Women Voters and am available to tutor classes in beginning and nonprofit accounting.

Algebra 1

I passed the Algebra I Tutor qualifying exam given by the Foothill College Pass the Torch program.

Algebra 2

I passed the Algebra II Tutor qualifying exam given by the Foothill College Pass the Torch program.

American History

I have a thorough knowledge of American history and have successfully assisted a high school student with creating an American history timeline, detailing the events in America in the 1930s.

Aspergers

I have experience tutoring students with Asperger's syndrome and am very familiar with the condition. I am also familiar with the different types of thinking patterns within the autism spectrum. First there is the Photo Realistic Visual Thinking Object Visualizers, who tend to be poor at algebra. Second are the Pattern Thinkers - Spatial Visualizer Music and Math, who tend to be poor at reading. Third are the Verbal Facts/Language Translation thinkers, who tend to be poor at drawing. Fourth are the Auditory Thinkers, who tend to have fragmented visual perception. There can also be mixtures of these thinking types. In my work with students I will try to determine which of these thinking types the student displays so I can build on their strengths.

While working with one student who had been diagnosed with Asperger's, I was able to help him raise his grade in statistics from an F to a B, but more importantly, I was able to figure out his learning style and match my tutoring to what he needed, as well as help him cope with his anxiety.

Biology

I have experience tutoring high school students in biology and have taken college level classes in cell biology, human biology, genetics, marine biology, physical anthropology and biopsychology.

Geometry

I have a thorough knowledge of geometry and experience successfully assisting a student with writing a geometry proof.

Grammar

I have a thorough knowledge of English grammar and once received a perfect score on a grammar test.

GRE

I recently took the GRE using the 130-170 scoring scale. My scores were 161 Verbal, 158 Quantitative and 4.5 Analytical (essay portion, graded from 0-6).

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have extensive experience creating PowerPoint presentations. I once completed a series of presentations on juvenile law for a juvenile law attorney who also taught classes in juvenile law for social workers. She loved my slides so much she was literally jumping up and down with excitement while she was reviewing my slides.

Prealgebra

I have a thorough knowledge of pre-algebra concepts. I first studied pre-algebra in seventh grade and did very well in the class. To increase the chance of success for the student, I use both verbal and visual methods to explain the concepts.

Psychology

I have completed numerous college-level psychology courses including general psychology, social psychology, biopsychology, human development and human sexuality, as well as research methods and psychology statistics. I also have extensive knowledge of autism spectrum disorders and recently gave a presentation on autism to the psychology club at Foothill College.

Sociology

I have a BA in Sociology from the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Special Needs

I have tutored students with the special needs of Asperger's syndrome, high-functioning autism and nonverbal learning disorders and am very familiar with all three conditions. Recently I worked with a student who had been diagnosed with Asperger's. I was able to help him raise his grade in statistics from an F to a B, but more importantly, I was able to figure out his learning style and match my tutoring to what he needed, as well as help him cope with his anxiety.

Statistics

I have successfully tutored multiple students in statistics through the Foothill College Pass the Torch program as well as statistics students from different high schools and community colleges. One student I worked with had previously failed the statistics class but received 100% on a quiz and 8 out of 10 on his statistics midterm after I began tutoring him.

Vocabulary

I have an extensive vocabulary and once served as the word-of-the-day coordinator for my office.

Writing

I am an expert writer. I have written everything from essays, poetry, and short stories to academic research papers in psychology and sociology to legal documents. I have always been highly praised for my work. Recently, I helped a 10th grade boy complete an English essay on The Great Gatsby as well as several biology essays.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
