About Jennifer

****Please note: I offer sliding scale tutoring prices in order to accommodate lower income students****

I graduated Summa Cum Laude with my master's in research on a full scholarship, and I'm currently pursuing my PhD in policy research. I'm a published academic writer with 10 years of grant writing, publication, and editing experience. While living in NY, I was a faculty member at Fordham University where I taught courses and mentored students in writing and research. I am keenly aware of the quality writing needed to succeed in middle school, high school, college, and beyond. After taking numerous test preparation courses over the years, I am highly competent in SAT, ACT, and GRE test-taking strategies and skills. I have mentored and coached many students on how to get into top programs, and I am passionate about helping students create college and graduate school essays that reflect their personal narrative.

For the past 10 years, I worked in academic medicine at the University of Southern California and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. During my tenure, I taught and mentored medical, nursing, social work, and pharmacy students. While I have worked with exceptionally naturally gifted students over the years, I have also worked with students with learning disabilities, assisting them in their individualized academic goals.

Ultimately, whatever the grade level or current aptitude of the student, I am focused on the specific needs of my students. My primary focus is the success of the individual student, and to that end I make myself endlessly available for discussion and communication outside of regularly scheduled sessions. I have routinely worked through the night to edit students' papers as deadlines fast-approached.

I love working with students to identify their academic strengths and bring them to the surface. I am extremely patient, energetic, and passionate about my students. I look forward to working with you to create a customized tutoring plan that incorporates your individual talents, abilities, strengths, and challenges. I want to partner with you and/or your child to create long-term goals for academic achievement and success. Please reach out to me to schedule an initial tutoring consultation.

I cover most of North County San Diego, including Solana Beach, Del Mar, Cardiff, and Encinitas.

Great tutor

Jennifer was prompt in responding to my request for last minute writing tutoring for my son. She was professional and provided a clear plan. My son "clicked" with Jennifer right away and appreciated her patience and teaching style. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor.
