Kennesaw State University (Math)
Hey! I am a 26 year old student at Kennesaw State University. I am currently earning my Master of Science in Applied Statistics. I work as a GRA for the Stats department, teaching the research I do on outcomes for preterm infants. I finished my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a minor in Applied Statistics and Data Analysis in December 2014.
I love helping people understand math! It is very rewarding to see something click with a student as a result of my teaching. In my experience many math teachers don't have the ability to explain things in multiple ways so that each student can understand. I think I am excellent at bridging that gap and coming up with ways for every student to grasp the material.
I am very creative! While most people see math and arts separately, I believe they are very similar. Once you get past basic math you have to be creative and think in a different way than most people to be able to solve problems and explain how to get the solution to others. In my free time I love doing graphic design, playing my ukelele, and watching movies. I love cats and my two younger brothers.
I have tutored many students from elementary to college level. I have been a nanny/tutor for 10+ years, including a year spent abroad as a live-in nanny/tutor. Most of my tutoring jobs have been for high school and college students in various maths. In this instance I would normally spend our time going over homework they don't understand/prior tests to help find/fix fundamental errors that can be keeping them behind in the class, and finding similar problems to ones they struggle with for additional practice in those areas. As a live-in tutor, one child's main struggle was reading comprehension, so apart from her regular homework I found passages with comprehension questions as well as creative free response questions to keep her interested. She also struggled with spelling, so we would make flash cards with drawings on them and go over those daily, as well as having her make spelling "boats" by writing out the word. For example "flash":
then drawing a sailboat around the word. The other child struggled with math, particularly times tables, so I made a fun card game for us to play. For both children I set up a rewards system that kept them excited to learn and reinforced that they were succeeding. They both made dramatic improvements throughout the year, as noted by their teachers, parents, and other family members.
I'm happy to tutor in most maths or assist in standardized test prep. I just took the GRE in January and scored a 167 on the math portion. I took the ASVAB and scored a 97, my highest individual score being math. I have tutored for the math portion of the GMAT and raised my student's math score by 100 points.
If the student (and parent) were not satisfied with the time we spent, I would not charge for the session(s)! Though I do not believe this will be an issue, I have only had completely positive feedback in the past! I am happy to travel to you, meet somewhere such as a library, or tutor in my home. I am very flexible with time apart from when I am in class. Hope to hear from you! Hey! I am a 26 year old student at Kennesaw State University.

My rate is negotiable based on distance, group rates, frequency, and lessons greater than two hours.
We contacted Jennifer to help our son get through his last required credit for high school graduation. Normally a very good student, he was struggling with statistical concepts and failing miserably. With just two months to graduation, she coached him and helped him to understand the concepts necessary to pull his grade up and achieve a passing grade.
Great patience, approach and flexibility. Extremely willing to meet as needed to address issues and upcoming tests.
She made clear SAS topics that the professor failed to clarify. She is patient and willing to talk out the problem in order reach a point of understanding. Overall it is highly likely I will ask her for help in the future and refer her to friends!
Jennifer was a fantastic tutor and very accommodating. Patient and spent all the needed time with me to prepare for my Calculus test. Would high recommend.
Jennifer and I reviewed my homework and I was able to gain a better understanding of the course material. Jennifer is very patient and has a desire to see people succeed with the course material. She would make a good match for any age group!!!
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.
I personally have ADD/ADHD myself (when I was diagnosed 8 years ago I was told they don't differentiate between the two anymore). I understand how incredibly frustrating it can be for a student with ADD. I was a bright, creative, intelligent student that didn't understand why I sometimes couldn't read through a page despite staring at it for three hours. I wasn't given the right tools or help, and it made me feel defeated and like I wasn't smart enough. When you get on that path you keep falling behind further and further. It is crucial to set yourself up for success! Getting a tutor is already a step in the right direction, and I can additionally help provide tools and organizational skills that help me to succeed (made a 4.0 last semester!).
I took algebra 2 in 11th grade and excelled.
I received an A in calc 2 and calc 3 over the last two semesters.
I just finished my math degree with a concentration in statistics, and am currently earning my masters in statistics from kennesaw state university. SAS is my preferred statistical software! I have taken 8 statistics courses, most of which required SAS.
I just finished my math degree with a concentration in statistics from KSU. I am currently earning my masters in statistics (also from KSU). I have made A's and B's in all of my statistics courses, both computational and computer based.
I took trig in college and made a 98!
