About Jenny


Bio

I offer tutoring on a wide range of subjects, but the following are some of my specialties/most frequent:

I offer tutoring on a wide range of subjects, but the following are some of my specialties/most frequent:

-College Essay Writing: I have been a college essay coach for the scholarship organization QuestBridge for 4 years now, and I can offer grammar and mechanics help, as well as editing for content.
-Biology: I tutor biology at a wide range of levels, including GED, SAT Subject tests, AP tests, AP Biology, and college biology. At the college level, I tutor Evolutionary Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Anatomy, and Ecology most often. My first degree and my current PhD are in Neuroscience, so I can offer specialized help in this area.
-GED preparation. I have tutored many GED students in all of the subjects covered on the exam. I can also help with general test taking strategies and formation of a study plan.

Though these are the areas in which I most frequently tutor, I have also worked on a wide range of other subjects, from history, elementary level writing, political science, statistics, and study skills. I pride myself on being flexible and doing my best to accommodate my student's needs, I have a negotiable schedule and am more than happy to tutor a student on multiple subjects. I'm also happy to work with all grade levels as well as adult learners.

Kind, prepared, and knowledgeable tutor.

I am glad to have found Jenny as a tutor for my biology class. She was able to fit me in on the same day, she was prepared with notes on my answers to a study guide I sent her so I could improve my answers, and she had PowerPoints ready to go. She is great at explaining things, knows what she is talking about, and is very friendly and encouraging. I would highly recommend her as a high school biology tutor!

Mahika, 10 lessons with Jenny

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My child felt that Jenny was able to explain the concepts quickly and in a clear fashion. She has an advanced degree in Neuroscience and I would recommend Jenny for AP Biology.

Anita, 2 lessons with Jenny

Wonderful tutor

Jenny is a truly wonderful tutor! She helps me with my readings. Through her help, I able to understand them. She answered every question that I have and was very understanding when I didn't know the answer. She's very accommodating and easy to follow. I highly recommend her to other acquaintances of mine who are interested in tutoring. I would love to work with her again.

Very helpful, quick turn around time and knows what she is doing

Jenny helped my son with 2 (so far) of his college application essays and her comments have been perfect, helping to cut through his writer's block and disorganization. She is super quick to reply, always polite and kind, and does great work in the fastest turn around time I've experienced. We are not done with the applications yet but I feel assured that we have a knowledgeable person to turn to if, no when, we need help again.

Jaclyn, 2 lessons with Jenny

Great tutor

Jenny is very efficient and talented at editing. She focused on my essay every single minute she was working with me. I would recommend Jenny to anyone looking for a writing tutor.

Autumn, 9 lessons with Jenny

Great AP Bio tutor

She was prepared and helped my daughter with some topics she had issues with. She shared with her a deck of slides for later review. She was very nice and patient since we had an issue with connecting with her. Thanks.

Amani, 1 lesson with Jenny

Very Knowledgeable and Patient Tutor

Jenny did a really good job breaking down concepts and organizing material for the SAT biology subject test. She is great at clarifying content and providing necessary practice/supplemental resources. I also like how she works through practice tests with you and explains all the answer choices.

Nina, 5 lessons with Jenny

Excellent tutor

Jenny is an excellent instructor. She is very helpful and great with the kids. We will continue to use her. Always has a lesson plan even with last minute lessons.

Kelly, 3 lessons with Jenny

Very knowledgable

Jenny really knows her stuff. She is concise and she is easy to understand. Complicated things can be broken down easily; definitely do recommend for neurology related issues.
