About Jennifer

Hey! I am a 26 year old student at Kennesaw State University. I am currently earning my Master of Science in Applied Statistics. I finished my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics with a minor in Statistics last December. 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":
f
fl
fla
flas
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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

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!).

Great recovery for a failing student — 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. ...
