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

ADD/ADHD

My first teaching job was in a school that specifically serviced special needs students. Each teacher received special training on how to aide students with a variety of differences, including ADD and ADHD. There and since I have worked with several students with ADD and ADHD both in their math content areas and with executive skills to help them succeed in all areas of their life.

Differential Equations

My degree is from RPI in Theoretical Mathematics, and thus included taking Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations as well as Linear Algebra a variety of other courses that require the use of differential equations. I have worked with students on many courses which applies differential equations as well as tutoring the course itself. I enjoy helping students identify the easiest path to a solution and the steps they should employ to get there.

Discrete Math

My degree is from RPI in Theoretical Mathematics, and thus included taking Discrete Mathematics as well as a variety of other proof-writing courses (Number Theory, Graph Theory, and Markov Chains to name a few). I absolutely love writing proofs and thinking problems out abstractly. I favor the Socratic Method of teaching, asking questions of the student to help him/her find her/his own way through the problem rather than telling what the next step is. This way the student not only learns how to solve a specific proof, but ways to approach proofs that will work on problems the student has never seen before.

Praxis

I have tutored test taking for many tests, including the Praxis many times. I received a perfect score on the math section of the Praxis I, and scored in the upper 170s for reading and writing. I also received the ETS award for excellence on the Praxis II.

Visual Basic

I have taken several classes in computer science and have written programs in both C++ and VB. Most notably, I wrote a scheduling program for the school that I work at, first in C++ and then rewrote it in VB with Excel so that we could use forms to make the program more user friendly. I have also tutored computer science courses and courses that required algorithm or code writing several times.

Voice (Music)

I currently sing Sop.1 in PVOP. I teach reading music in both treble and bass clefs, time and key signatures. I also teach Solfege (Do, Re Mi..) and intervals to help with correct pitch. I use IPA to teach correct pronunciation of foreign language lyrics (particularly Latin). I have a portable keyboard to bring to lessons and music if the student doesn't have their own selections that they wish to learn.

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.
