About Jennifer

I have over 12 years of experience teaching introductory and general chemistry at Pima Community College in Tucson. I have a Bachelor of Science degree with Honors in Chemistry.

I know which concepts often cause trouble for students and can help you learn those and feel confident in your studies. I enjoy working with students one-on-one or in small groups. I am willing to travel to a convenient location for our sessions.

I have studied many subject areas at the graduate level as well such as Biochemistry and Pharmacology in addition to my BS degree in Chemistry. I like to emphasize problem-solving skills for the physical sciences and will review any necessary math concepts with you. We can also work on test-taking skills and homework techniques that factor in your natural learning styles.

College teaching experience includes Prep Chem (CHM 080), General Chem (151 and 152), and Introductory Chem (CHM 130 and 140). I love to help students reach their goals. I have taught and tutored students with a wide variety of educational and international backgrounds. I volunteer with a local Literacy non-profit organization.

Please contact me to set up a time and location to meet in Tucson for a lesson. We can also look into online lessons if you are not in the Tucson area. I am available between 9 am and 9 pm most days. I require a cancellation notice of at least two hours. Please let me know any questions you might have about scheduling tutoring lessons.

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 approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I am a qualified tutor in Chemistry and Physical Science. My Bachelor of Science degree is in Chemistry. I have taught General and Introductory Chemistry courses, both lectures and labs, at the college level.

Organic Chemistry

I have a Bachelor of Science degree (with Honors) in Chemistry and received A grades in all Organic Chemistry courses. I have also taken graduate level courses in Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry. I have taught and tutored college-level general chemistry courses for several years at Pima Community College in Tucson, Arizona. I have also taught introductory chemistry and organic chemistry courses for pre-nursing students. I have some work experience in the pharmaceutical industry as an analytical chemist. I worked for several years as a Laboratory Specialist for Pima Community College to help develop teaching lab experiments and preparing chemicals and instrumentation for weekly student labs in organic chemistry and general chemistry. Those years working in the community college as both adjunct faculty and laboratory specialist helped me develop my teaching and tutoring skills for chemistry. I am familiar with many issues that cause confusion for students and working with different faculty exposed me to different teaching styles from which I choose the best ways to reach my students.
