About Jennifer

Hello, parents and students (of all ages!). My name is Jennifer. I'm working towards finishing my master's degree.

While I have been teaching and tutoring since I was three years old when I first lined up my stuffed animals for "school," I have been a professional tutor for over 10 years. I focus a great deal on reading comprehension, particularly for math and science, to help all of my learners grow. My goals are always to build knowledge and confidence so students can learn to think independently. This way, students know how to ask questions and logically think or research their way to answers, even when they have little or no help.

I have successfully tutored students from grades 3 through graduate school.

I can tutor students in the following subjects (in no particular order):
-- Spanish 1 and 2
-- Algebra
-- Biology
-- Statistics
-- IBM SPSS
-- Reading Skills
-- Mathematical conversions problems
-- Setting up mathematical equations from word problems
-- Microsoft Excel
-- Scientific/Research-based writing
-- Microsoft PowerPoint
-- Voice/Singing and Vocal Performance

Feel free to contact me with any questions you have. I look forward to working with you!

--CANCELLATIONS POLICY: Please be aware that cancellations must be made at least 24 hours before scheduled lessons. Cancellations made less than 24 hours before scheduled lessons may be subject to a charge for 1 hour of tutoring.--

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.

Biostatistics

I have taken a course specifically in biostatistics. Much of the material was/is the same as the statistics and epidemiology coursework I completed as part of my health sciences MS program. I have a BS in biology which has also helps me integrate my knowledge of stats and general sciences when I'm tutoring students/clients.

Voice (Music)

I have formally studied voice for the past 3 years but I have been singing since I was 4 years old. I began singing in school and church choirs and have grown to include solo performances. I typically sing in English, but have often sung songs in French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

Great tutor

Jennifer is great. She is very patient and she made sure I know the content of what we were reviewing before our sessions ended. I would love to have her as a teacher on a regular basis and will continue using her as long as I am taking statistics. She is awesome.
