About Jaclyn


Bio

Hi! I'm Ms. W! I've been tutoring test prep and mathematics since 2007, when peers and schoolmates asked for my help with the ACT after I had scored a 36. Since then, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Duke, trained as a life coach, and earned my Masters of Education at Northwestern. At NU, I focused on the intersection of mathematics and personal & social identity through my Masters Research Project, studying what being a 'math person' means to students, broadening...

Hi! I'm Ms. W! I've been tutoring test prep and mathematics since 2007, when peers and schoolmates asked for my help with the ACT after I had scored a 36. Since then, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Duke, trained as a life coach, and earned my Masters of Education at Northwestern. At NU, I focused on the intersection of mathematics and personal & social identity through my Masters Research Project, studying what being a 'math person' means to students, broadening the criteria for being 'good at math', and positioning all students as competent and valuable mathematicians.

I love being an educator because I love empowering students. While it's rewarding seeing students improve their grades or scores, there's nothing like the fulfillment that comes from leading someone to more clarity, curiosity, and confidence. My students learn a lot of math but also about themselves as students and people.

I've tutored students through more traditional curricula and have taught the IMP curriculum at Chicago's Northside College Prep: 4 years of precalculus, 3 years of geometry, and 1 year of algebra 2/trig. Though I don't have an official separate degree, I also earned a Bachelors in mathematics from Northwestern while completing my Masters in Education.

One of my more prominent strengths is my adaptability and ability to meet people where they're at. If you think I might be able to help, please get in touch - I probably can!
