Bio

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 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 have completed all the coarse work for a doctoral degree in education at Claremont Graduate University focused on how to make mathematics comprehension for all.

Test Preparation

CBEST,

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.

Daniel's session

Jennifer is really patient with my son even though he struggles with the same ideas. I am grateful for her patience

Maria, 29 lessons with Jennifer

Most effective algebra 2 tutor!

Jennifer is very patient with her students. She helped me tremendously with trigonometry concepts from basics to pre-calculus math problems. She gave extra time in helping me prepare for my college-level final. Overall, she's great with non-traditional students, and is always cheerful and pleasant. Let's do it again!

Sandra, 20 lessons with Jennifer

Wonderful teacher

Jennifer taught my son how to do his Algebra lesson in a different way. She simplified what his teacher had taught him. He went to school the next day and taught his classmates this method. Needless to say they all passed their Algebra test using this method. Thanks Jennifer.
