I have a B.A. in Mathematics and Physics, and an M.A. in Physics. My experiences both as a student and teacher's assistant in the classroom have given me a unique perspective on how to make the material easier for students to understand. I believe in a student centered approach to learning, and try to tailor my tutoring style to the individual needs of the student and the class that the student is taking. In some cases this takes on the form of working through problems together. In other cases it involves giving advice on how to find the resources that you need to solve problems (internet, how to use a textbook, your notes, or to find help from other students in the class). Whether you're looking for someone to explain things to you, or you want someone to work with, I am here to help.

Jennifer's subjects

####
Algebra 1

I can help you learn and master the topics in Algebra I. Some of these topics include: setting up word problems, linear expressions, graphing, polynomials, exponents, factoring, solving quadratic equations, and factoring. Bring a textbook and problem sets that you want to work on. My goal is to help you master and understand the material.

####
Chemistry

Chemistry is the study of elements, compounds, and their reactions. Some of the material covered in a general chemistry course include the periodic table of elements, ions, compounds, heat flow, molecular size and geometry, gas laws, acid and bases, equilibrium, stoichiometry, chemical reactions, equations, molecular states, molecular bonding, states of matter, and properties of solutions.

####
Geometry

Geometry is the study of shapes and their properties. Topics include the properties of one dimensional lines, two dimensional shapes, and three dimensional objects, perimeter, area, and volume, angle measurement, and geometrical proofs.

####
Physics

I believe in a student-centered approach to learning physics. Bring old tests, homework sets, and textbooks, and we'll work through problems. I also like to know how the teacher is setting up the course, what is a passing score, whether you can use equation sheets, etc. Let me know where you need help, and I'll guide you through the steps.
