About Jenny

**Group tutoring now available - if you can get a group of students together you can all benefit from a discounted rate**

Does your student lack motivation? Does he/she hate studying and find it difficult? Are they overwhelmed and don't know where to start? Do they lack certain reading, writing, or critical thinking skills that are holding them back from doing well? Did they score below the 60th percentile?

I can help.

I will give your students the guidance they crave. I will help your students gain the knowledge and skills they may be lacking. I make each student feels safe in their own abilities and never judge. And ultimately I will give them the confidence to continue studying on their own. This confidence will also serve them in the years of college that lies ahead.

I have been tutoring students in SAT (math/reading/writing) for the last five years and have developed a method for following the particular strengths and weaknesses of my students. I believe in connecting specifically with each students' interests and goals to make the work engaging and memorable. And I believe in being patient with each student.

Please contact me if you're interested in working with me. I will set up a phone call to chat further and see if your child and I are a good fit. Looking forward to hearing from you!

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.


I received my ADHD coaching certification in January 2013 from the ADHD coaching association and I have had several ADHD students since then.

I have experience working with elementary to high school ADHD students and I work individually with each one to determine best practices for each individual student. In addition, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques to affect changes in the way students think and approach their homework!

Adobe InDesign

I used InDesign for 5 years during my time as Editor-in-Chief of JJ Express Magazine.

Adobe Photoshop

I have taken a design class at the Pratt Institute for design and am very familiar with Photoshop.


I have studied Chinese for four years in college. I have also taught Chinese to elementary schoolers for two years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have received my Maine certification in elementary education at the University of Maine.


I have taught ESOL to elementary schoolers for two years. I was certified as an ESOL teacher by Montgomery County Public Schools.

Study Skills

I am experienced tutor in many subjects and I have helped numerous students in studying for many subjects. I have received an elementary education teaching certificate from the University of Maine, in which we extensively covered study skill techniques and how best to support students who are struggling with study skills. I know how to support students based on their unique learning styles, from kinesthetic to aural and I have developed several ways to help students get their work organized.


I've been an editor and journalist for over five years, working for Reader's Digest, The Gazette, the Washington Post, New York Parenting, Asian Fortune, Washington Parent, and many more publications. I pride myself in succinct, powerful, and effective writing. Clear writing is clear thinking and I help students not only love the writing process but communicate in the most clear and powerful way possible.


I was certified in Hatha Yoga 4 years ago and have been teaching yoga since then. I am skilled at Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Kundalini yoga, and therapeutic yoga. I have taught large classes as well as one-on-one and I help students discover a love of yoga within themselves.
