First I “check in” with the student to see where they are and what they need help with. I am knowledgeable about different learning styles and preferences and if I am able to determine that a particular student is stronger with learning visually rather than verbally, or vice versa, I can alter my tutoring style accordingly.

First I “check in” with the student to see where they are and what they need help with. I am knowledgeable about different learning styles and preferences and if I am able to determine that a particular student is stronger with learning visually rather than verbally, or vice versa, I can alter my tutoring style accordingly. For example, I use drawing pictures and graphs to explain concepts, instead of just describing them verbally. I am patient with students who need repeated explanations of concepts. After determining where the student needs help, I am able to explain the concepts and follow-up to make sure the student understands.

I have successfully tutored students in math at the community college level. When the student brings in worksheets, I go over the first problem or two, explaining the concepts and procedures needed to solve the problems. Then I watch the team member do the next problems to see if she has understood the concepts and procedures being taught.

Also, when the team member has taken a test or exam, we go over the incorrect answers to see what mistakes were made and re-emphasize the correct way to solve the problem. I also will explain to my students about preparing for exams, and what to do before, during and after an exam.

My tutoring experiences have included students in their late teens through the adult years.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have experience tutoring students on the autism spectrum and am very familiar with the condition. I am also familiar with the different types of thinking patterns within the autism spectrum. First there is the Photo Realistic Visual Thinking Object Visualizers, who tend to be poor at algebra. Second are the Pattern Thinkers - Spatial Visualizer Music and Math, who tend to be poor at reading. Third are the Verbal Facts/Language Translation thinkers, who tend to be poor at drawing. Fourth are the Auditory Thinkers, who tend to have fragmented visual perception. There can also be mixtures of these thinking types. In my work with students I will try to determine which of these thinking types the student displays so I can build on their strengths. While working with one student who had been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum, I was able to help him raise his grade in statistics from an F to a B, but more importantly, I was able to figure out his learning style and match my tutoring to what he needed, as well as help him cope with his anxiety.

She Knows Her Stuff

Jennifer is good at speaking math to 'non-math" types. I have confidence in her knowledge and her appreciation for what my goals are. I really had trouble with the concept of probability and she helped me start to comprehend it.

Kathleen, 3 lessons with Jennifer

Knowledgeable, friendly, clear

Jennifer provided some much-needed assistance with statistics. She was very good at explaining the concepts using examples, in a way I could understand. Thanks!

Thomas, 1 lesson with Jennifer

Very knowledgeable tutor. Goes straight to the point.

Reviewed my Excel homework hypothesis tests for a population proportion and for a population mean. I did some mistakes and she fixed them. I got 16 out of 16! Also, on my Statlab homework.

Miriam, 9 lessons with Jennifer

Extremely Patient

Jennifer is an extremely knowledgable tutor. When I contacted Jennifer I was not confident in my statistics ability and was halfway through my college quarter with a failing grade. I needed to pass my statistics class in order to graduate, and Jennifer was able to help make that happen! I went from failing my quizzes and midterms to receiving a 100% on a quiz and Bs on the last midterm and final!! Jennifer was extremely accommodating with my hectic college and work schedule. She was patient and thorough when I was struggling with a concept, and wouldn't stop explaining it until I completely understood. Overall, Jennifer was extremely helpful and an amazing tutor. Without her I would not have understood statistics and passed the class with a much higher grade than I thought was possible in the beginning.

Jennifer is very knowledgeable with statistics

Jennifer is very knowledgeable with most topics of statistics and is very patient. She explains how we arrived at the answer and when to test for a z or t test. She also shows how to run the test on a T-84 plus calculator which is very helpful.

Perfect tutor for statistics!

I am enrolled in a college statistics course and Jennifer was able to really simplify a few concepts. I am so happy she was able to help me!

Stats and helped me out. Worked on T-tests alpha variance null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis. She did a good job explaining the terms to me.

Best tutor ever

I want to start off by saying that I hate math. It's never clicked with me and when it came time to take my statistics class in college before I could transfer to a university, it took me a couple tries. The first two times, I had a really hard time keeping up with the class along with my other classes, and the material was difficult for me to understand. This summer, I enrolled in another statistics class, which thanks to Jennifer was the last one I would ever have to take. The first week of the course, I knew that I needed a tutor to literally walk me through the course. I found Jennifer on WyzAnt and was eager to get started. I must say, every meeting was extremely productive. Jennifer is extremely patient and somehow is able to explain the material in a way that nobody else could, to the point where once I left the session I felt like I had a full understanding of the section or chapter that we were working on. Throughout the course, I spent a lot of time with Jennifer and she's the best - she's funny and extremely intelligent and very dependable. I can't think of taking another math class without having her help. Without her, I honestly do not think I would have passed the course in the fast-paced setting that the summer classes are in. If you're looking for a tutor, Jennifer's the best there is.

Luke, 16 lessons with Jennifer

Extremely patient

Jennifer was punctual. She taught me more in 2 hours than my Statistics professor taught me in 5 weeks. She explained things in a way that I could understand (I'm a returning student and have never appreciated math). I am working with her again.
