I taught AP Calculus at a private high school designated by the College Board in 2006 as #1 in the world for Advanced Placement scores. I sponsored JETS (Junior Engineering Technical Society) teams that placed #1 in California and #1 in the nation in engineering competitions. In a recommendation, the department chair stated, "I could always tell which of my students had Judy the previous year. They were generally the students who were the more independent learners and who were, without a doubt, well prepared. . . What makes Judy a terrific teacher and tutor is her approach to students and her caring. Judy can make something mundane seem fun."
I also spent 15 years writing and managing software for satellite mission control. I was nominated by Rockwell as subcontract manager of the year and was treated to a VIP viewing of a shuttle launch. My combination of academic and industrial experience makes me uniquely qualified to bring real-world applications to math and physics education. I am well acquainted with current teaching texts and methods, including the use of calculators and computers for computation, graphing, analysis, and exploration.
I volunteer at a Youth Counseling Center in Pittsburgh. The program manager wrote of me, "She's one of those exceptional teachers who can explain concepts in ways that even the most math-challenged students are able to comprehend." In the classroom and in tutoring I have taught all high school math subjects, as well as physics and computer science. Every student thinks and learns in individual ways. My greatest success in working with students is when I can help them identify approaches that will bring them success and self-confidence.

Judy explains the material very well and my son is really starting to understand the concepts. His grade in Advanced Calculus is improving and I am very pleased with his progress after only a few tutoring sessions. She has a strong background in Calculus and has taught it for many years. Judy is an excellent tutor who is both friendly and reliable. I would highly recommend her!
Judy was a blessing to our Geometry year! Her understanding of the way my children learn was amazing. She is enthusiastic, organized and loves to teach the kids. Judy received an A+ in our house!
We are very happy with Judy's lessons. She is working on a very difficult subject and making it easier to understand.
Judy is very knowledgeable, professional and works hard to make sure that the material is covered completely.
She cares about her students and really wants to help them learn the material and to be successful.
I highly recommend her as a tutor.
Judy is a kind and patient tutor. She truly cares if I succeed. She always spent more time with me and never watched the clock. She explains concepts well.
We can't begin to describe how excited and pleased we are with the tutoring services that Judy has been providing to our daughter. Although she does very well in math, she seemed to be struggling with new concepts, as well as forgetting the basics that she learned prior to this year's Algebra I class. We enlisted Judy's services after reading her information here, and meeting with her in person. She has been a fantastic tutor and an immeasurable help to our daughter thus far. Judy has a sense of what the student is "missing" in their basic understanding of mathematical concepts, and not only helps with the current lessons, but re-teaches and reinforces what is needed to continue progression in the subject.
Additionally, Judy's love of math is contagious, and she has actually helped my daughter with "feeling" what the answers should be, which has made the computation much easier. Judy not only uses my daughter's own text books and worksheets, but she always has additional materials available to use, making the sessions more fun and helping to fully immerse her in the concepts that Judy is teaching her.
We could not be more happy with our choice of a tutor for our daughter, and feel truly blessed. We know that she feels much more confident in her classroom, and she looks forward to her tutoring sessions weekly so she can stay ahead of the "eight ball"!
Judy J. is an excellent tutor. She was able to quickly identify the weak point of my son, and fix the problem. She breaks down the concepts very well, and teaches how something works very well. She also is a very friendly and kind person, and is always on time for lessons. I strongly recommend her.
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.
Judy J. passed a background check on 8/12/11. The check was ordered by Judy through First Advantage. For more information, please review the background check information page.
After sending a message to Judy, you will be able to order a new background check for $7.99. As part of your tutor selection process, we encourage you to run updated background checks. Please also review the safety tips for hiring tutors.
