About Jennice

After 20 years as a research and industrial chemist, I changed career paths and became a high school chemistry teacher. I earned my Master's degree in teaching chemistry from Kennesaw State University in December 2010 and I hold a GA teaching certificate as well as a gifted certification. Every student learns differently and I try to find the best and easiest way for your student to understand the concepts. I believe any student can learn chemistry as long as they feel confident and empowered. I try to instill these feelings in your student as a positive attitude can make a huge difference. Learning how to approach test problems is also something I teach my students to try and relieve test anxiety which is often the cause of poor test results, which leads to poorer performance, and the downward spiral begins.

I have attended many workshops and classes for high school chemistry teachers. I currently teach at one of the top public high schools in Georgia. I look forward to helping your student be successful in chemistry.

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.

Astronomy

I taught high school astronomy for 2 years. My husband is an amateur astronomer so I've been involved in astronomy for 33 years.

Chemistry

I have 20+ years experience as an industrial chemist including coordinating world wide research projects. In addition to having a BS in Chemistry from Texas State University, I have an MAT in Chemistry from Kennesaw State University. I am in my eighth year of teaching high school chemistry. Additionally, I have taken 3 months of workshops on teaching chemistry.
