About Jenina

I am a working professional and an accountant by trade who enjoys tutoring on the side. I have an MBA from Santa Clara University with a concentration in Accounting & Finance, and a BA in Journalism & Public Relations.

My extensive education has given me exposure to, and a strong understanding of, the following standard exams: SAT, GRE, and GMAT. I am very strong in math and have been in advanced placement math throughout my entire academic career, including: pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, pre-calculus, AP calculus AB, and statistics. I am also very strong in English and writing and have a lot of experience with college essays and school papers.

I'm friendly, approachable, patient, and passionate about helping others.
