About Jennifer

My name is Jennifer and I recently graduated from Georgetown University with a Masters of Science in Physiology and Biophysics. Before attending GU, I completed my Bachelors of Science degree at the University of CA, Los Angeles with a major in biochemistry.

I have been a tutor for about four years now. My specialty subjects are AP Physics and Chemistry. As an undergraduate at UCLA, I tutored other undergraduate students in their physics classes. Classes included mechanics, electricity/magnetism, and light/optics. Currently, I tutor students in math and science classes including AP/IB Biology, AP/IB Chemistry, AP Physics B/C, AP Calculus AB, AP Statistics, Algebra I/II, Geometry, and basic math/science. I also tutor various college-level science and math courses and help with MCAT preparation/pre-med advising. Most of my students attend schools in the Diamond Bar, Walnut, Rowland Heights, Chino Hills, and Hacienda Heights area.

My main goal during my teaching sessions is very simple. I teach students until they are able to understand and communicate the concepts and apply them without any outside help so they may be able to confidently tackle even the hardest of problems. Throughout my sessions, I constantly do my best to keep my students focused and motivated. I help my students succeed not only in the classroom but also as individuals by helping them develop confidence and a strong work ethic. Additionally, many of my past students have significantly raised their school grades (+10-20%), scored the highest on exams in their classes, received a score of a 4 or 5 on their AP tests, and have gained admission to top universities such as UCLA, UC Berkeley, and USC.

My tutoring sessions typically happen at a local coffee shop or at the student's house, depending on what is most convenient. Tutoring times are typically during the evenings on weekdays and weekends. I always do my best to be very flexible with time changes and cancellations, but I usually require a 24-hour notice for any cancellation or time change.

If you are interested in having me as your or your child's tutor, please feel free to message me!

Approved subjects

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.
