About Jenny

The Short of It:
NY/NJ born and bred ...
Georgetown Grad ...
NYU - MBA (Marketing, Management, Entreprenuerism) ...
Lived life. Traveled world. Pursued acting in LA. Worked in TV. Worked in Technology.
Utilized writing, critical thinking, grammar, comprehension and public speaking writing on a daily basis.
Believe that tutoring is unique to every client. Everyone learns differently and with the integration of patience and curiosity figuring out how to ensure students learn and understand is my forte.

The Long of It:
As a native New Yorker I grew up in a very competitive environment where learning study skills, respecting the professors who taught us and delivering on all assignments were non-negotiable factors in my education. Additionally, I was blessed with a loving parental unit - comprised of a Doctor (Father) and Teacher (Mother) who instilled in me a love of learning; a deep, sincere, infinite desire to garner and appreciate knowledge.

Respect for the written word while learning to write, to read, to critically think, to learn about history, to enjoy social studies, to problem-solve and to engage in other creative activities further inspired my life-long commitment to loving knowledge and a desire to share that love with others.

My academic path through Millburn, NJ (schools - 2nd public school district in the state), on to Georgetown University and then to New York University's Stern Business School established a pattern of focused, disciplined, incisive learning skills.

Regarding Study Skills - please don't underestimate the obvious, as I believe they are inherent to how one tackles problems and situations in school and the future workplace. I am also a big believer in DNA - more precisely HOW it manifests in creating Unique, Inimitable children and adults. Subsequently, when mentoring/teaching/coaching the diverse population of students out there the nature/nurture factor influences people of all ages to learn in different manners.

What matters is what truly engages the student's strengths, identifying them and re-enforcing the confidence needed to face many an exam, paper or deliverable of any sort. Or helping an adult learn to be more confident in the workplace, problem-solve marketing and management skills better in business; both examples underscore the need to recognize we are not all the same and thus, do not learn the same. But I believe one CAN learn magnificently.

People skills are integral to learning scenarios!

My Most Memorable teachers were always the ones who were patient, stressed clarity in their presentations, were willing to help me with my weaknesses without judgment, were funny and had no problem listening to my suggestions as to how to incorporate different ways of thinking. Assessing and understanding cognitive issues, general study/topic strengths and weaknesses and then finding a Method of study that is engaging, entertaining and repetitive in a manner wherein both the teacher and the student are learning, reiterating and absorbing together perpetuates the learning curve. As who doesn't want to set high expectations and then have them met?

Learning is collaborative and fun. The problem-solving skills I have acquired through my various experiences from pursuing acting, to working at start-up companies, to Fortune 500 companies further reinforced the following skills:
- Engage an audience.
- Be clear and state your goals in identifiable ways.
- Encourage the group/audience to embrace the ideas presented; even disagreements manifested, the challenge of creating an environment where it is imperative to get someone to just Listen is no easy task.

The skills I value and use continually are:
- reading
- reading comprehension
- grammar and phonics
- writing
- creative writing
- knowledge of American and European history / Social Studies (for the Elementary population)
- knowledge of International relations and US government policies
- public speaking
- improvisational speaking
- problem-solving and critical thinking

Finally, one facet I have long nurtured and been passionate about is the Theatre (acting, viewing, directing, coaching.) I have been involved in various productions, acting, directing, coaching and writing in the NY and Los Angeles area.

I directed, acted and coached through my years at Georgetown in addition to gaining a degree in Theatre.

I lived in Los Angeles and studied Theatre (scene study) and Improvisational techniques - both courses which produced actionable skills for children interested in acting in a play, learning their lines, understanding character motivations, being introduced to great literature via legendary playwrights and in general having fun with performing!

THUS - I beg of all who read this - never underestimate the power to think on one's feet, to conquer a fear of public speaking and to enjoy the imagination!

The take-away from my experiences has been that nothing truly defines a person as definitively as someone who realizes that they will never know everything and yet they are hungry to learn everything and anything they can for the rest of their lives.

Respectfully Yours,
Jenny G.

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.


My specialty lies in helping you communicate yourself in the best possible written manner. Whether it be a discussion boards or paper or presentation, I can help you as a proofreader/editor in order to bring out your best. Knowledgeable about APA, and able to fine tune your excellent ideas.

Public Speaking

While attending Georgetown University and co-majoring in Government and Theatre, we were required to give PowerPoint and written presentations in front of our classmates in several of the Government & Theatre classes, with respect to the relevant Topic Assignments during my tenure there from 1989-1993.

Additionally, I was a on-campus Georgetown U. Tour Guide (after necessary training sessions) for 2 years. Detailed information was to be memorized enough regarding the benefits of attending our school given its academic, faculty, peer and locational access to Washington, DC area activities. We were taught to engage prospect students and their parents, leading scripted and spontaneous Question & Answer informational sessions throughout and after the tour.

In addition to enhancing my Public Speaking skills while acting in front of various audiences through college, I then pursued an acting career in Los Angeles. After moving on from that pursuit, I worked at the Walt Disney Corporation and ABC Network, wherein as an assistant to the EVP of Reality Series, I was asked to present weekly reports in front of the TV development team as to my suggestions for future programming based on local talent research, finding new writing talent and concepting new TV platform ideas.

In 1999, I returned to New York City 1999 and pursued my MBA at the Stern School of Business. It was an uncontested requirement that we attend at least two(2), 3-credit courses in PowerPoint Business presentations and Strategic Group Presentations. These courses required me to coordinate a singular presentation which I presented via Digital Projector technologies to the class, defending my case-study.

Pursuant to Group Presentations there was a Core First-Year course which was based on a curriculum outlining the proper manner in which to: address an audience, enable interactive QA sessions, adopt techniques to maintain breathing skills and eye-contact to ensure audience focus and engagement. All courses then provided feedback from both students and the professor as to presentational skills.

Using a combination of :
1. Detailed material analysis
2. Evaluating/understanding student's overall reading comprehension skills (via initial reading sources I supply)
3. Testing social skills via introductory unpracticed, micro-presentations pursuant to my curriculum
4. Teaching applied techniques as to how to annotate, diagram, interpret and explain written/graphic materials to a public audience (business or otherwise) are employed
5. Establishing a set number of Presentational Practice sessions in various environments (a library room, a local conference room, etc.) are incorporated into the curriculum schedule
6. Memorization techniques in order to be able to comfortably know the material while taking moments to look at the audience in question are substantive measures taken to re-enforce Public Speaking skills

Finally, I require continual feedback from the student as to what techniques of Public Speaking have worked for them before.
a) I ask about prior experience in Public Speaking scenarios and under what circumstances they were given, and what the feedback/outcome was.
b) From a brief, introductory questionnaire which I engage the client in we are both able to begin to formulate a feasible set of tools to create a foundation for successful Public Speaking - whether it's in a business, school or other environment.

One of the my stand-out Public Speaking engagements occurred when I won a Speech Writing contest and was selected via the NYU Faculty to give the NYU Commencement Speech on behalf of the Stern/Langone Part-Time student program during graduation.

Study Skills

Patience + Practice + Personality = part of the recipe for understanding how to create and nurture a strong Study Skills foundation.

My work & academic experiences have resulted in a flexible Study Skills framework that is customized per client; the goal is new skill adoption.

> Learning how to Outline
> Identifying critical strengths & weaknesses in a student's regular academic habits
> Figuring out what tactical styles are best for various note-taking techniques

I truly believe that great study skills lend to great note-taking which can manifest into a superb resource - for future studying.

The main caveat here: Ambition. Intelligence and Commitment are key.

I do not have an education certificate, nor am I trained in working with clients dealing with ADD/ADHD. I know that WyzAnt is rife with more qualified tutors than I who can help students with these types of issues. My education at Georgetown University and New York University's Stern Business School established a pattern of focused, disciplined, incisive learning skills.


I began acting in school plays in New Rochelle,NY and then throughout junior/senior high in Millburn High School.
I acted dramatically as I could not sing.

When I attended Georgetown I minored in Theatre (as they did not have it as a Major however I received a 4.0).

While at Georgetown I created a traveling acting troupe called "Gone Fishing". Additionally, I acted, directed and produced several productions when opportunities did not exist for alternative theatre (Neil Simon, Maria Irene Fornes, Caryl Churchill).

I graduated GU in 1993 and drove to LA to pursue acting. I studied at The Beverly HIlls Playhouse - doing intense scene study in a conservatory manner for 16 months.

I also took Improv classes at the reputed Groundlings studio for 8 months.

I moved into the business side of Television in 1996 after my studies, gaining an agent, manager and SAG card. I was offered a position to work at Walt Disney Studios which I could not afford to turn down as my creative desires also were invested in helping other communicate and develop stories.
