Hello, I'm Jade (she/her)! I'm an experienced Physics and Chemistry tutor for College and AP level Chem/Phys Subjects. I also specialize in tutoring neurodivergent students, ensuring that the highest levels of learning are available to everyone; sometimes we just need a little tailored help! I received my A.B. in Chemistry and Physics from Harvard, and have over 350 hours of tutoring experience with a leading premium tutoring service with a 4.9 star rating, at time of writing.

I take pride in tailoring instruction to each student's individual needs, finding the explanations and analogies that 'click' for each student. I specialize in helping neurodivergent students, with conditions including ADHD, Dyslexia, LDs, and OCD. I personally know how hard it can be to learn with these challenges- I am able and eager to adapt my teaching style to best suit your individual needs. I also have extensive experience working with LGBTQ+ students; as a proud transgender woman, I always endeavor to provide a welcoming and affirming learning environment for all.

Over the course of my studies, I have worked in a variety of laboratories, ranging from biophysics to quantum chemistry, both at US and Japanese universities.
I teach a broad variety of subjects at the College and AP levels, readily adapting to each student's individual course contents and needs.

In the past year, I have taught the following, for both Algebra- and Calculus-based courses:

Introductory Physics, Physical Sciences, Classical Mechanics, Special Relativity, Electricity and Magnetism, Waves and Optics, Thermodynamics, Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, AP Physics 1, 2, C
General Chemistry, AP Chemistry

If you do not see your subject listed above, please send me a message! I have extensive training in subjects beyond these, and would be excited to guide you through them.
If you think that my tutoring might help, let's discuss how I can meet your needs- I look forward to working with you!

Chemistry

My education and training has primarily been in pure and applied Physics and Chemistry, extending to Statistical Mechanics, Quantum Mechanics, Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. I additionally have extensive experience in a variety of laboratory settings across fields, rendering me able to communicate effectively between disciplines and make connections across fields. I also have experience teaching a number of engineering students in Mechanics and Thermodynamics, using my pure and applied Physics training to provide perspectives not provided in most engineering classrooms (especially insights gained from the derivation of physical laws, as opposed to rote memorization).

I graduated Harvard University with an A.B. in Chemistry and Physics, with a joint focus in physics topics such as Statistical Mechanics and Quantum Mechanics, as well as chemical topics like Organic and Inorganic Chemistry. This grounding in both the pure and applied aspects of both Chemistry and Physics enables me to help students draw connections between difficult and abstract Engineering concepts (especially in Thermodynamics). Additionally, I have extensive experience in a variety of laboratory settings across fields, which I have used to help make connections with students' practical Engineering experience, to facilitate learning. I have tutored a number of engineering students in Mechanics and Thermodynamics online using these techniques, to great success. I was particularly able to help students apply insights gained from the derivation of physical laws (as opposed to rote memorization), which brought many from a failing course grade to passing.

Special Needs

ADHD

ADHD

Although my training is formally in Chemistry and Physics, I have moved through mental health spheres for years as I personally struggled with and began to overcome my own OCD, ADHD, and Depression. This has given me great insight into the challenges of learning with ADHD, and has additionally made me very literate in matters of mental health and able to readily adapt to students' individual needs. I have worked with a number of students with challenges ranging from ADHD to Dyslexia, and have helped them not only improve their grades in Physics and Chemistry courses, but also develop tools for future study and methods of understanding/review that work well for them.

Like Minded People!

Woooh! Best analogies for the most confusing subjects, and crazy cool personality. Life is an ongoing challenge, and you've got a knack for helping others I have now found myself in a better spot with physics where I once found myself giving up. Never, had I better be inspired to take on something so freakishly challenging! You got the heat sis. You rock!

Norma, 19 lessons with Jade

great teacher

Very patient and understanding and helpful I’d recommend jade to anyone who needs help and is not a quick learner like myself and needs someone to explain something several times over

Amar, 21 lessons with Jade

thanks again!

jade is great at breaking down and simplifying physics concepts, would definitely recommend her as a tutor for anyone considering lessons

Kenna, 2 lessons with Jade

Very Informational

Not only did I get the work done but I feel I learned a lot along the way. Would recommend.

John, 2 lessons with Jade

Very patient and well versed on subject

Jade was kind and patient. Explaining clearly and concisely to a student who was anxious and unsure about the subject matter. It was like a weight was lifted after the class. Highly recommend for tutoring!

Joanne, 2 lessons with Jade

Very knowledgeable on subjects and easy to understand

I am a high school student who needed help on chemistry. Jade is very knowledgeable on subjects and also made difficult concepts easy to understand. What I really liked about Jade is she has a great sense of humor and that made the class more interesting and engaging.

Amy, 5 lessons with Jade

Great session

Jade is wonderful to work with, very knowledgeable and able to translate complicated material to students effectively. She is warm and friendly, easy to connect with.

Kelly, 3 lessons with Jade

Very responsive and attentive to the student's needs

My student enjoyed the session and was very impressed by Jade's ability to explain the material with ease and in a way that enabled clarity and understanding. Jade was very responsive and very interested in learning the student's needs from the start. We hope we can have more lessons in the future.

Adeyma, 13 lessons with Jade

Excellent tutor!

After just one session with Jade, the first thing my daughter said is she understands her first semester of High School Honors Chemistry finally. She was so confused and now she is more confident about the class and her abilities. She is looking forward to working with Jade more and understanding Chemistry so much better.
