About Jennifer

Hi, I'm currently a graduate student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I obtained my M.A. in May 2017 and my projected date for my Ph.D. is May 2020. My research focus is on the neural and behavioral mechanisms underlying substance use disorders, namely with an interest in executive control functions (e.g., working memory, inhibitory control, attention). I have always been involved in tutoring and thoroughly enjoy it, as I find it incredibly rewarding to guide students to achieve their academic goals, as well as to cultivate a sense of confidence, self-efficacy, and creativity. In addition to providing academic support, I find that tutoring is a really unique opportunity to work with students to develop more general skills such as those that enhance organizing, problem-solving, and using the available resources. The combination of academic success, skills, and confidence is something that a student can apply to many elements of their future work and life, whatever they ultimately end up pursuing.

I graduated from Swarthmore College in 2012 with a major in Psychology and a minor in Statistics. During my time as an undergraduate here, I served as a Teaching Assistant (TA) for the Statistics and Astronomy Departments. This role involved grading assignments and also providing academic support to help students with their homework assignments and exam preparation. After I graduated, I worked at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) as I was granted a post-baccalaureate fellowship. During this time, I tutored at C2 Education, where I worked with all students ranging from elementary school to college to help them with schoolwork (homework, exam preparation), standardized test preparation (ACT, SAT, SAT-II), and also college applications. Currently, I tutor through an organization at UNC that helps student-athletes with their schoolwork.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to more about myself or to schedule tutoring session(s). I am looking forward to this opportunity!
