About Jem

In 2005, I taught 6th-grade Biology in an accelerated Math and Sciences charter school. I am back in school as a graduate student in the Medical Sciences, and I am currently finishing up my research in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology. I still love to research, but I love teaching as well. I have learned to become a better student and teacher through my teaching and tutoring. I really enjoy tutoring because every day is different and every student is unique!

My first step in addressing math problems for test prep is to have a clear understanding of what the problem is asking. Most students do not realize that the technique is secondary; it is more important to understand the reason. Once you do that, you have the most important tool to solving the problem.

I have been fortunate to have wonderful teachers throughout my academic career, and I would like to pass that privilege on to my tutees. It does not matter what you think your skill set is-that is what it is, a skill set you can always improve. The best thing you can do for yourself is to make a commitment to your education: it is your long-term investment in yourself. Good luck!
