About Jennifer


Bio

Hi~ My name is Jennifer and I am currently a graduate student at NYU studying statistics. I have a BS in Mathematics and have been tutoring the subject for over ten years now. And despite having taught high school mathematics and exam prep both in public and private schools, I still prefer to tutor students one-on-one because I find it to be the most effective method for helping students actually learn new and complicated material.

Hi~ My name is Jennifer and I am currently a graduate student at NYU studying statistics. I have a BS in Mathematics and have been tutoring the subject for over ten years now. And despite having taught high school mathematics and exam prep both in public and private schools, I still prefer to tutor students one-on-one because I find it to be the most effective method for helping students actually learn new and complicated material.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE
In addition to tutoring maths, I have also taught high school mathematics, including Geometry, Algebra II, PreCalculus and AP Stats. I understand how overworked teachers are and how important it is for some students to get extra support outside of the classroom. I also appreciate the skill it takes to be able to say the same thing in many different ways, whereas some teachers think that if they repeat the same directions over and over, their students will eventually understand. The great thing about tutoring one-on-one is having the chance to understand how individual students learn best and adapt appropriately. I am extremely patient with all of my students and am very creative when it comes to finding ways to explain complex concepts and effectively communicate the big picture.

I have experience working with all types of students, from those who are not being challenged enough in the classroom to those who have a lot of difficulty just keeping up with the rest of their class, whether it is because of a learning disability or just the inability to stay focused.

Unlike a lot of other tutors, I do not tend to work with the same students for long periods of time. Instead of simply helping students with their homework, I like to help them develop their own strong study habits and learn how to answer their own questions so that they can effectively teach themselves and not always have to depend on a tutor. Personally, I feel this is the goal of any good teacher; to not just teach a subject, but to teach students how to learn on their own.

Great first session!

Jennifer was very easy going and helped me begin reviewing for the GMAT. We stayed on tasks and helped develop an initial game plan for moving forward. She is very down to earth and made me feel comfortable going at a slower pace.

Great teacher

Jennifer made me view my math lesson in a new way that made it clearer and helped me understand the content thoroughly. She let me show her what I needed help on for specific questions then showed me different ways to arrive at the same answer. I would recommend!

Excellent tutor

My daughter was having difficulty understanding geometry, and Jennifer worked with her and was able to get her focused and accomplishing the work that needed to be done. She was patient and thorough, and will be coming back again. Jennifer was just what we needed!

Nice and on time

Jennifer has tutored my daughter twice in Geometry. My daughter says that Jennifer makes everything clear and that she has a complete understanding of the material after each session. She is also very nice and always on time. I would highly recommend Jennifer as a Math tutor

Making a difference in just one session!

Alyssa loved Jennifer! She is kind, patient and knows her material. Alyssa was a different person approaching her midterm after just one session with Jennifer who was Well prepared ...above and beyond...for the tutor session. Jennifer helped Alyssa identify the basic concepts she was missing ( that her teacher didn't teach!) and apply them to the more complex material that her teacher expected her students to know. This is exam week...but we will definitely be setting up a weekly schedule with Jennifer for the AP exam!

Outstanding

We engaged Jennifer on short notice to help my high school sophomore prepare for his Algebra II midterm. She is absolutely terrific. I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Knowledgeable and patient

Jennifer taught my daughter AP Statistics. She was extremely helpful and helped her understand the concepts better. She was also very kind to her and patient with her.

Excellent Tutor

Jennifer connected with my daughter. Jennifer took the time to understand my daughter's areas of struggle, her school teacher's teaching method and determined her tutoring approach that would most benefit my daughter. She gives my daughter ideas on how to apply and practice what she learned. Jennifer not only explains the formulas but also explains which formula is applied to what type of Algebraic equations which was lacking from the school's teaching. My daughter has learned so much more from Jennifer in the last 2 tutoring sessions than she has in the past several months. Jennifer provided me with her assessment which to my great satisfaction was totally in sync with my own assessment of the areas of struggle for my daughter. In short, Jennifer is FANTASTIC!! I really feel that my daughter is now finally on the right path to succeed in her Algebra 2 class.

The BEST

Jennifer has been so professional. It has been a real pleasure for my son to have her as his tutor. She is enthusiastic, organized, on time and even creates homework for him. This truly has been a wonderful experience. She has help instill the confidence my son needed to enter honors math. Thanks!
