About Jennifer

I have 15 years of experience teaching mathematics to students of all ages and backgrounds, but I especially enjoy tutoring students one-on-one where I can focus on the student's individual learning needs. I have taught and tutored elementary, middle school, high school, and college students in arithmetic through pre-calculus. I have taught mathematics to students with many diverse needs, including students with physical and learning disabilities and English Second Language Learners from diverse areas of the world. When tutoring, depending on the student's needs and learning styles, I frequently use socratic questioning strategies, manipulatives, and visuals to help the student gain true understanding of the concept and skills being studied.

I have a B.A. in Mathematics and a M.Ed. in Mathematics Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Washington, and a M.S. in Mathematics focused on statistics from Claremont Graduate University. After studying elementary and special education at Central Washington University, I was certified in Washington state to teach K-12 Special Education, K-8 Multiple Subjects, and K-Adult Mathematics. I am currently pursuing a doctoral degree in education at Claremont Graduate University focused on how to make mathematics comprehensible for all.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

I have a B.A. and M.S. in Mathematics and a M.Ed. in Math Education. I have taught for over 15 years, including multiple years of teaching algebra to middle school, high school, and college students. I apply a variety of teaching strategies, such as manipulatives, real world analogies, and Socratic instruction, depending on the student’s learning styles.

CBEST

I am fully qualified to tutor people in preparation of the CBEST math section, based on my B.A. in Mathematics, M.Ed. in Mathematics Curriculum and Instruction, M.S. in Mathematics, and over ten years of experience teaching secondary (middle school and high school) mathematics. When I took the CBEST test in 2001, I passed the math and reading sections on the first attempt. I passed the writing section on the second attempt, which I had ran out of time for in the first attempt. Since then my writing skills have greatly improved while completing my master's studies and doctoral coursework.

Geometry

Experienced teaching high school geometry. Have taken several college geometry courses for math teachers, including 4-dimensional geometry and non-Euclidean Geometry. Enjoy the logical thinking of proofs.

Linear Algebra

I have a B.A. and M.S. in Mathematics. During my undergraduate studies I got a 4.0 in Elementary Linear Algebra and a 3.9 in Linear Algebra. I have several successful experiences tutoring college students in algebra at various levels.

Logic

During my undergraduate studies I got a 3.8 in a logic course, and during my graduate studies I got a 3.7 in a deductive reasoning course. On the logic section of the GRE test I was at the 91 percentile score level. I regularly use logical reasoning when explaining math to students, during my own graduate studies - MS in Mathematics earned 2012, and in every day life.

Prealgebra

I have ten years of experience teaching pre-algebra to students of many diverse backgrounds and ages 10 through 50. Pre-algebra is a difficult level in which one is expected to start understanding abstract algebra. I frequently apply manipulatives and visuals to assist my tutees in comprehending the abstract concepts and skills studied in pre-algebra.

Special Needs

My post-bachelor’s special education teacher credential studies, education master’s studies, and doctoral studies in higher education for students with special needs exceeds the equivalency of a master’s in special education. I have 45 upper division quarter units in special education from Central Washington University, 3 graduate quarter units in special education from University of Washington, and 16 graduate semester units in special education from Claremont Graduate University. My special education units total the equivalency of 48 semester units. I previously was credentialed to teach special education students in both California and Washington states, and I taught as a special education teacher for over two years.

Calm and patient!

Jennifer has helped me refresh my understanding of statistics so that I can clearly explain concepts to my students. She is fantastic! She is very flexible about meeting times and the topics we cover. She's especially dependable.
