About Jen


Bio

I graduated from Columbia with a double major in history and mathematics. For the last four years, I've tutored ACT/SAT math, calculus, and algebra.

I specialize in tutoring math, but also tutor other subjects. In fact, next year, I'll be beginning a PhD program in History, to study the history of mathematics.

My students often tell me that they didn't understand math before they worked with me. I think this is because I strive to adapt my style of teaching to match each individual...

I graduated from Columbia with a double major in history and mathematics. For the last four years, I've tutored ACT/SAT math, calculus, and algebra.

I specialize in tutoring math, but also tutor other subjects. In fact, next year, I'll be beginning a PhD program in History, to study the history of mathematics.

My students often tell me that they didn't understand math before they worked with me. I think this is because I strive to adapt my style of teaching to match each individual student. No way of teaching is best, and everyone learns differently. In getting to know my students, I determine how best to convey challenging material to them. I work on creating ways to excite them about the work they find "boring."

I firmly believe that everyone can be good at math, and have worked with many students with learning disabilities. But often times, my students struggle with math not because they cannot grasp the concepts, but because they are hindered by anxiety. With all of my students, I create a low-pressure environment in which they can build the confidence to succeed in math, and most importantly, to enjoy it.

Please email me to set up a time to meet! I look forward to working with you.
