About Jennifer

I am a graduate of Stanford University, where I majored in Human Biology with a concentration in Science Education. I currently work in education - I have worked both as an instructor and advisor at the high school and university level.

As someone who frequently used tutoring as a resource to help me at Stanford, I know first-hand what it is like to be a tutee, and I use all that I learned from those experiences to help in my tutoring. I love learning, even when it seems difficult, and I believe that everyone has the ability to achieve their goals - tutoring makes this more of a reality.

I have worked over 7 years as a tutor in various capacities, ranging from college application and admission guidance to SAT prep, to reading comprehension and math for middle school, to almost every subject at the high school level. Understanding that each student is unique in their learning path, I like to design individual plans that specify what both the tutor and tutee can do to help achieve the desired goal.

I look forward to hearing from you and learning more about how we can work together to achieve your goals.

Subject Background:
Math has always been one of my strongest subject, one that I have always earned top grades in. As a student, I scored in the 95th percentile nationally on SAT Math. I have taken college courses up through Calculus (full year) and statistics.

As a high school student, I scored in the 98th percentile on the SAT Writing component. I have since used the knowledge I gained in my test prep to help educate students about the SAT writing component.

I have worked for over 6 years with various organizations to counsel high school juniors and seniors on the college admissions process. As a high school student, I successfully applied to over 15 universities (state and top-tier schools).

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.

College Counseling

I have worked with various organizations, and over a dozen individual students, on college admissions counseling and guidance. I have worked with students in person and online, and have helped with applications ranging from state schools to top-tier universities. As a student, I successfully applied to over 15 universities, including many top-tier universities (Stanford, Columbia, NYU, etc.). I have experience in helping students with organization for the college admission process, navigating the selection process (choosing a safety, best match, and reach school), adhering to guidelines, SAT prep, soliciting letters of recommendation, building and designing a resume, and college admission essay editing.

Prealgebra

I have successfully completed math courses up through college calculus and statistics. Prealgebra has always been one of my favorites!

Second Session

Jennifer walked my child through steps that she missed on her first Algebra test this year. She was patient and broke it down to simple terms. She was great.
