I am a patient teacher who will work with students of all ages to help them understand science. I have been teaching elementary through college science for the past 15 years, specializing in life science since I have a doctorate in molecular biology. In my 15 years of teaching, I have taught the following high school courses: Biology, AP Biology, Honors Anatomy and Physiology, AP Environmental Science, Conceptual Physics, Integrated Science, and Marine Science. I also have taught the following college courses: Cellular Biology for Biology and Biochem majors, and General Biology for Pre-professional majors. I also enjoy helping students prepare for the ACT science exam.

Jen was on time and helped us with the location. She gave two practice tests and went over strategy for taking the test.
Jen knows high school Biology very well. She explains concepts clearly and provides
opportunities for the student to share their knowledge. Her approach to teaching has helped my daughter gain a better understanding of Biology as well as build her confidence. We would highly recommend her as a Biology tutor.
After only working with Jen a few times, my adult son was able to fill in some gaps in his learning and received his highest test score ever on a final exam in college!
Jen's tutoring style is very engaging, she frequently uses relatable examples that allow the kids to understand, remember and be quite interested in the material. My son's teacher commented last week, based on his depth of questioning, understanding and grades that he is the "brightest kid in the class!" We certainly credit Jen for her contribution to that level of engagement! Jen is easy to communicate with and coordinate with and is clearly passionate and dedicated to the difference she makes with the kids.
My daughter is doing amazing in Biology because of Jen's patience and how she explains her lessons. We are lucky to have found her.
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.
