About Jennifer

As a former high school biology teacher, I have the knowledge and tools to help you learn the exact material that your teacher will be looking for on your next test! I have been certified to teach in three states and have over six years of experience in the classroom. Although my expertise is high school biology, I have had certifications for middle school science as well as experience teaching basic chemistry and physical science. I work with students at any grade level, 1-12, as well as entry level college science courses.

I use hands-on techniques whenever possible to help students gain a deeper understanding of the information. I use a plethora of memory tricks such as mnemonic devices to help students learn the information in a way that it will stick. I get to know my students and their learning style and find a technique that brings them success. I assist students with their school homework in a way that teaches them how to solve the problems on their own. By the end of the assignment they will be able to show what they have learned during our tutoring. I also create practice texts that will be similar to what the student will see on their next exam. I work with the student to ensure a firm comprehension of the material. If these personal goals of mine are not met, I will not bill the tutoring session.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

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.

ACT Science

I have taught high school science for 5 years in Missouri and Texas. I have done several trainings on preparing students for standardized science tests. I have taught biology (which my degree is in), conceptual chemistry, and general science test preparation. I have experience explaining diagrams and charts teaching students how to analyze their data as many of the questions on these tests require students to do.

Anatomy

I have my biology degree from McKendree University in Lebanon, IL where I successfully passed Anatomy and Physiology. I also tutored another student through this course a year later. Since college, I taught high school biology which includes anatomy and physiology topics as well.

Biology

I am a certified biology teacher in three states; I have a Biology degree from McKendree University in Lebanon, IL.

Genetics

I earned an honor roll grade in my college genetics course at McKendree University. I have taught genetics for 6 years as part of the high school biology curriculum. I recently tutored a high school student through her honors genetics unit and helped her to raise her grade by one letter and earn A's on her last two tests.

TAKS

I taught high school biology as a certified teacher in public high schools in Texas for 4 years. I taught a science TASK course for students who needed to improve their score in order to graduate. I went to TAKS teacher trainings both in Ft. Worth and Austin which I implemented ideas from in the school that I taught, resulting in higher TAKS scores the following year.

Prepared and Competent Tutor — Jennifer really helped break down the material so I could understand the concepts and apply them. Being a former science teacher, she is very knowledgeable on all the topics I cover, and has access to her old teaching material which is extremely helpful. ...
