About Jennifer

I understand that chemistry can be challenging and it is difficult to succeed in this field. However, it is the fear of chemistry that overwhelms a student to the point that he/she does not understand concepts that could be understood. It is the passion to overcome this fear that inspires me to teach. With an MS, it is evident I am hard-working and understand the material. I am a patient individual that understands that every student has a different method of learning. I am also very versatile, which allows me to alter my method of instruction according to the needs of the student. I am motivated by the feeling of accomplishment felt by a student that has gained an understanding of a subject area that once seemed impossible.

As a graduate from St. John's University with a BS and MS in chemistry, I have a full understanding of the field. I have been teaching General Chemistry at the undergraduate level for the past two years at various schools. As a recent graduate, I have the advantage of seeing the perspective of students of the time. I understand the importance of relating the material to the students and the importance of clarity. I am comfortable with working with students of any age, and have tutored numerous students one-on-one. Teaching at several schools, has allowed me to understand the differences in requirements for various students. I am confident that I can adjust to the teaching environment required to allow students to excel in chemistry.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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 specialize in High School Regents level and AP Chemistry, as well as, in college level General Chemistry.

Excellent Tutor and Very Easy to Reach — Jennifer is an excellent tutor. I took a 5 week intense summer session for college chemistry 1 and with out her I would have failed. The course was fast paced, and the teacher unorganised and confusing. I hadn't taken a chemistry course since high school, which was ten years ago, and was completely over whelmed. Jennifer not only helped me review the basics, but was able to explain the new materia ...
