Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I'm currently a college student attending National University, majoring in math. I can tutor a variety of subjects from basic elementary math to calculus, basic natural sciences to upper division chemistry, as well as up to Semester 4 of university Japanese. I started out majoring Chemistry at Harvey Mudd College where I was taught not only a wide breadth of subjects in math as science and a more in depth knowledge of chemistry but most significantly that being able to communicate our work is just as important as the work itself.

I find this approach is especially helpful in math and science. Many people have anxiety with these subjects because society has portrayed these subjects as difficult and only for the really academic types. I think that this not true, that with a lot of time, patience, and empathy, math and science can be not only accessible to all, but it can be fun. They are puzzles that we can unravel together.

I am willing tutor late at night! So if you want someone to meet you after 10 pm, I can be your guy (or I guess gal!).

Algebra 1

I am a math major and regularly use the skills that are learned in Algebra 1. I recently retook algebra in October of this year so I have refreshed my knowledge in this subject. I received an A in the original class and in the refresh class.

Calculus

I recently just retook calculus 1-3 and received an A as well as reviewed this subject for the GRE. I have run study groups and have tutored other math subjects. My major is currently in math, and I'm working to become a math teacher

My strength is breaking down what seems like big concepts and relating it to stuff students have seen before. I'm patient and personable, and I work really well with students who may have anxiety toward this subject.

Organic Chemistry

I have taken this class twice: once at a community college level and once at a university level with an A and a B+. I ran study groups when I took it at the community college level.

Chemistry and Pre-Calculus Triage Specialist! — I'm taking my first Chemistry class and Jennifer is helping me make sense of it all. I underestimated how complicated the subject would be and did not prepare enough for my first exam. In just 2 meetings, she helped me tremendously. I scored 81% on my exam.
