About Jennifer

Hi my name is Jenn. I have been teaching for 10 years. I have taught grade 6 math/science in Westford for six years. In my former life, I was a research assistant for a biotechnology company in Lexington, MA. I absolutely love to teach. I enjoy helping students with math and science in a way they can understand. I love incorporating technology and hands-on experiences whenever possible. It is so awesome to watch a student have an "ah hah!" moment.
I started tutoring after school just about a year ago. I enjoy tutoring because it is such personalized instruction. Working with someone who is struggling and being able to see progress made and confidence built in as little as an hour is extremely rewarding. We all learn in different ways, and in my opinion, once you figure out which way you learn best, there is not stopping you.

On a side note, I love to help students stay organized and work on executive functioning skills and strategies.

I have experience teaching math in grades 5-8. I do not focus on a simple algorithm, I focus on why the algorithm works. I enjoy using manipulatives and real world examples to help students find success with math concepts.

I worked in a neuroscience lab for 3 years where I presented at an international conference. I then worked in a biology lab for 3 years after that. I love experimenting and getting both girls and boys excited about science.

If using manipulatives, learning through real world examples, finding your best way to learn material, and thinking outside the box to help you be successful is what you are looking for, please don't hesitate to contact me :)
