I am an intelligent, fun-loving, enthusiastic former college instructor who loves learning and helping others learn. I can help make mind-boggling subjects more manageable and maybe even fun.
After completing a Master's degree in economics, I taught both math and economics at community college and university, followed by several years of tutoring. While teaching Algebra 1, I excelled at helping students who had always struggled with math gain confidence and begin to enjoy the class. I received some of the highest evaluations the school had ever seen.

Jodi explained macro economic concepts in a very understandable way. Attained an "A" on test and felt confident. Thank you Jodi!
Jodi is extremely knowledgeable. She was able to explain difficult concepts into easy to understand formats throughout my economics course. Highly recommend Jodi and personally look forward to working with her in the future. She's awesome!!
Jodi has helped my daughter tremendously this year with pre-calc. Now she is helping her with SAT prep and we will definitely be using her next year for calculus!! She is very patient and explains the material very well!
The lesson with Jodi was great! We worked on upper level microeconomics with complex theories and graphs. I had worried that she wouldn't be able to handle the class I'm taking but she's totally good at it.
Jodi, is a great tutor! She helped me for 2 semesters of Collage algebra and Statistics! She is so patient and understanding. She takes the time to explain everything and uses her white board to show me the steps! Shes also really knows her stuff with these subjects. Shes amazing!
Jodi was responsive to my request for an Honors Pre Calc tutor last minute. She was able to explain the material in a way that my daughter understood the material for a quiz the next day. Would definitely recommend her.
My daughter has learned a lot and really enjoys learning from Jodi. Great AP Econ tutor. Likely saved my daughter's semester.
I absolutely cannot express my gratitude enough to Jodi. Very intelligent, very patient, and most importantly, her teaching style is crystal clear and thought-encouraging. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for help in Economics.
She helped me study for my test and I felt very confident after. She's a great and intelligent tutor! Would recommend 10/10
Jodi is helping me get through my college algebra class and is really nice and helps me really understand the lessons. She definitely knows her stuff and is flexible!
Dont think twice... communicates difficult concepts with clarity. i am able to understand concepts easily with her help... she rocks!
Jodi has been a great teacher. I have now worked with her for a little over a week, for approximately 5 or 6 sessions and I feel like my comprehension of math has expanded dramatically in a short amount of time. She is patient, thorough and extremely knowledgable. I highly recommend her!
Although the questions were tough Jodi wasn't afraid to take a tackle at it. Loved the session and didn't make things more confusing! Will be back for more lessons with Jodi.
I met with Jodi for a 2 hour session unsure and skeptical of my own mathematical abilities. At the end of our session I felt confidence and ready for my math placement test.
Mikaela received a 4 out of 4 on her Math Quiz following her latest lesson. It was very challenging material and she didn't miss a single problem. Your help with her understanding the content early in this school year is already evident! Thank you!
Jodi is teaching me how to analyze the overall problem and how to work through all the steps of Engineering Economics. I like her encouragement and dedication. Jodi has helped me accomplish understanding complicated, multi-level word problems incorporating college level mathematics and economic theory.
We have just started but she is attentive and smart and builds confidence. we cannot say enough about how happy we are with Jodi!
Jodi was very flexible in meeting our changing schedule. She spent extra time working with my son and didn't watch the clock!! We appreciated that a lot.
She is tutoring me on Linear Algebra which is very difficult but has a great way of explaining things in a simple manner.
Jodi has been a patient and caring scholar providing careful guidance and subject knowledge that has helped a student that needed that personal attention that only a talented tutor can provide. Her assistance is greatly appreciated and the progress of my grand daughters confidence is well noticed.
My student's progress in her class continues to improve. She has pulled herself up in terms of her grade and her quiz results also show great improvement. Jodi has continued to work with her and help her to understand the subject. She has brought her mid-term grade up to a good, respectable "C"! Great work, Jodi!!
Jodi is a phenomenal tutor. I've been working with her for 2 months while studying for my GRE. I had seen a few other tutors previously before I tutored with her and while other tutors may be smart, they didn't help me really understand what I was doing and why. Within one session with Jodi she made me truly understand the content of the questions I had asked the other tutors. While working through problems, she makes you work just as hard as she's working. She'll ask you questions about what would your next step be, your answer, and then she'll give you clarification for why that's a common mistake, or why that is the correct step. Jodi also goes beyond what most tutors would, and she gave me access to more study materials (GRE tests, study problems that were my weak points, ETS PDF workbooks) outside of the tutor session. If you give her a list of some difficult problems, she'll work through them on her own time so when it comes to your one hour session, you can accomplish more with your hour. You'll be surprised how much you can cover in an hour. Her feedback and methods were invaluable to me. She helped me raise my Quantitative GRE score from 156 to 159. I'm quite pleased with that!
Jodi is an excellent PreCalc tutor. She has a lot of patience and works extremely well with our daughter. Her guidance and knowledge not to mention her calm personality is a plus to anyone who needs a math tutor. They work well on homework assignments when our daughter is stuck on a problem, strategies for test taking and test prep. Unfortunately Jodi is moving to California in June so we will miss her tutoring our daughter. Hopefully when she gets settled in CA she will tutor there and others will know she is a great choice for an excellent math tutor! Save travels Jodi!
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.
