About Jennifer

In high school, I excelled in both math and science. As a junior, I headed a student run organization in my school (through the Mu Alpha Theta club) to tutor students in math in preparation for the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test). When I began college, I chose to focus on my interests in science over math, but I continued tutoring math for some time through Kaplan Test Prep where I worked with high school students who were preparing for their SAT or ACT. As an undergraduate, I worked with my school, Towson University, tutoring peers in various entry-level to advanced biology and chemistry topics. In all of these experiences, I worked mostly one on one (but up to groups of five) which allowed me to conform my teaching methods to the student. Finally, since I moved to the Chicago area in 2013, I have tutored hundreds of hours in subjects from ACT math to geometry and algebra II / trigonometry, and high school biology to college level organic chemistry.

I am quite flexible as a teacher, depending on what the student requires since every student is different! I can be laid back or strict, but I am always well organized and focused on the subject at hand. In my experiences, I have learned how to gauge what a student needs to succeed and I always strive to provide him or her with just that. I am comfortable teaching students of all ages and subjects of all levels.

I graduated with a BS in Biology (with minor in chemistry) and, since then, have taken some independent graduate level biology courses at San Diego State University and Loyola University Chicago, so I have a very firm background in biology. I recently took the GRE and passed the quantitative section with flying colors (and I even 'tutored' my husband for the math portion of his GMAT) so I can assure you that I am well prepared to teach math subjects as well. Furthermore, I look forward to a career in teaching high school or college level sciences, so I would love the opportunity to work with you to broaden my own experience as well as your knowledge. It is because of my extensive experience and love of the subject matter that I believe I would be a perfect fit for you and your tutoring needs!

I look forward to meeting and working with you soon,
Jennifer

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.

Biology

I graduated with a BS in Biology (with minor in chemistry) and, since then, have taken some independent master's level biology courses at San Diego State University. As an undergraduate, I worked with my school, Towson University, tutoring peers in various entry-level to advanced biology and chemistry topics, so, not only do I have a very firm background in biology, but I have significant experience teaching it.

Genetics

I graduated with a BS in Biology (with minor in chemistry) and have taken some independent master's level biology courses as well. My specialization was cellular and molecular biology which required multiple courses in genetics. As an undergraduate, I worked with my school, Towson University, tutoring peers in various entry-level to advanced biology and chemistry topics, including multiple sessions tutoring other students in my same genetics class due to a lack of tutors who had already completed the course.

Organic Chemistry

I graduated with a BS in Cellular and Molecular Biology which require a working knowledge of Organic Chemistry. I also minored in Chemistry. I earned 'A's in both of my advanced Organic Chemistry classes at Towson University as well as being awarded the American Chemical Society's POLYED Undergraduate Award for Achievement in Organic Chemistry. Finally, I spent 20 hours a week for three years during my undergraduate career tutoring students in various entry level to upper level biology and chemistry courses.
