Experienced AP and College Calculus and Physics Tutor
I have a passion for explaining math in a way that is easy to understand. I have been tutoring middle school, high school, and college math and science for about 10 years. I have a background in hydraulic engineering but am currently teaching high school math and physics. When tutoring I aim to not only strengthen math and science skills but to build confidence as well, helping students to succeed long after tutoring.

The BEST AP Physics and AP Calculus Tutor!
Jennifer is the BEST AP Physics and AP Calculus Tutor, hands down. She takes concepts that are very challenging and breaks them down into simple parts. She is patient, encouraging, and inspiring! I took AP Calculus B/C last year and she helped me with the class and AP Exam prep. I got a 5 on the AP Calculus B/C exam! This year, I am taking AP Physics C. She makes even the most difficult concepts seem easy. If you like Physics and Calculus, she will increase your love for the subjects tenfold. If you are looking for an AP Calculus/AP Physics tutor, she MUST be your FIRST CHOICE!

Excellent Tutor and Mentor!
Jennifer continued her work with Cameron this summer for Stats. She helped Cameron earn an A- in UNC Calculus earlier in Fall Semester after a very tough start (prior to her engagement ). Jennifer is worth her weight in gold. What a great tutor!

Boosted my daughterâs confidence in one lesson!
My daughterâs confidence in Pre-Calc was deflated after deceiving a failing grade on her first examination in the class. Jennifer immediately set my daughter at ease and after two math problems says that my daughter is a strong Msth student. After an hour of tutoring , my daughter was clear on how to do all the math problems covered on their session. I see an A in my daughterâs future in Pre-Calc this yearđ with Jenniferâs help!

Physics Tutoring
My son was very pleased with the with manner in which Jennifer conducted the tutoring session. He stated that Jennifer did a much better job in explaining the work requirements and problem solving than his college professor. He will reach out again to Jennifer as needed. Thank you Jennifer.

Extremely competent and relatable!
Weâve engaged Jennifer to assist my daughter in Freshman Calculus at UNC. Both lessons this far have been excellent. Tutor is relatable and able to communicate challenging concepts in a manner that daughter can comprehend. Jenniferâs schedule is flexible and we are 100 percent satisfied. We will continue to use for full semester and augment the online learning through UNC.

Awesome Tutor!
Jen is the best tutor that I have ever known. She truly wants you to do well and succeed. Itâs not just a job for her. She lives and breaths math. She is good at all of it. I have tutored with her for yearsâ Geometry, Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 and 2, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, Physics. We even did Chemistry (we both hated it so much, but she was still able to teach me and make it bearable). Sheâs so amazing at all of it! When I donât understand something she explains it in a different way. If I still donât understand it, she tries a different way, and on and on until I understand. She is so patient and she never makes me feel dumb or stupid for asking questions or if I donât get it the first time. She isnât boring or dull during our session. When I first met her, I was a shy kid who wouldnât even look at her during our first session. Over the years, I have become more open and we laugh and joke all throughout our sessions now. Even though Iâm doing math, itâs fun because Iâm doing math with her. She helped my math skills grow more than I ever believed possible, and I donât hate math anymore, which is something I never thought I would say. Sheâs literally THE best tutor in the world!

I definitely recommend choosing Jennifer as your tutor!
I loved tutoring with Jennifer! In just a few lessons, I was able to raise my grade by a whole letter! She made the concepts easy to understand and made math fun for me. She is very patient and offered understandable explanations to anything I found confusing. I loved how kind and personable she is and I'm very grateful that I got to have her as my tutor.

Patient, compassionate and knowledgeable tutor!
My daughter has only had one lesson so far with Jennifer and it has already been an uplifting experience! She feels much more confident about AP calculus which has been a struggle for her this year and Iâm hoping that she can succeed moving forward and actually like math again. Jennifer spent some time after the lesson to ask her about her goals in college which I thought was really helpful. She really tried to find out who my daughter was as a person to help better understand her needs. My daughter was beaming after the lesson and said âI love her! Sheâs so smart and really coolâ That alone was worth it for me. I look forward to future lessons and continuing to build my daughterâs confidence. It would be great if she even considered a STEM field after graduation which she had ruled out because sheâs felt defeated in this class.
