I am a Columbia University educated science tutor. I have a Masters degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. My research background is Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and some experience in Organic Chemistry I have tutoring experience in both High School level and College level Biology, General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Biochemistry classes.

Last semester at college I took Chemistry I, a subject area that was daunting and hadn't been a strong suit in the past. With Jennifer's help I got an A+ and one of the highest grades in the class. Jennifer explained the course material in a way that was conceptual and easy to understand. She has always been on time, available, and able to work around my schedule. I plan on tutoring with her again for Chem II and Organic chemistry.
Jenn spent 2 hours today with my daughter on organic chemistry (high school level) and she finally started to grasp the concepts! Jenn was very helpful!
Jennifer tutored our daughter in a very difficult area, protein synthesis. She made the lesson enjoyable, elicited feedback from our daughter to ensure understanding, and has a very deep level of expertise in biology.
Jennifer is very pleasant and makes my son feel very comfortable. My son actually enjoys learning from her. She is a very caring person, who has professional and encouraging attitude. My son has caught up a lot. Thank you so much Jennifer - you are the best.
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.
I have experience in tutoring both high school level and college level General Chemistry. I think that chemistry can be taught in a clear methodical approach. I've even had a student struggling with high school chemistry tell me "Oh, this is fun!" after I've tutored her in mole conversions.
I love organic chemistry. While I have my graduate degree in biochemistry, as an undergraduate, I worked in a synthetic organic research laboratory. I have taken general organic chemistry and graduate level physical organic and modern synthetic method classes, scoring top in all of my classes. I think organic chemistry is frequently taught in a memorization format, but it could be taught in a fun puzzle-like method where everything goes back to plus like minus and minus likes plus. I have experience teaching organic chemistry, and I think I can make you understand so you might actually end up loving it!
