About Jenna


Bio

I have two bachelor's degrees, one in Applied Mathematics and one in Earth Science. I am currently attending Brown university to obtain a PhD in Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences with a focus in oceanography.

For mathematics, my strengths are in calculus, linear algebra and ODE/PDE. For earth science, I generally focus on global climate and weather as well as physical oceanography. My experience in these courses has been developed by research I have completed at Harvard University...

I have two bachelor's degrees, one in Applied Mathematics and one in Earth Science. I am currently attending Brown university to obtain a PhD in Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences with a focus in oceanography.

For mathematics, my strengths are in calculus, linear algebra and ODE/PDE. For earth science, I generally focus on global climate and weather as well as physical oceanography. My experience in these courses has been developed by research I have completed at Harvard University on statistical genetics as well as Brown University in traffic modelling.

I have been a tutor at my undergraduate institution my entire academic career, and have also worked as a peer leader for groups of students. While deployed in Iraq I served as a tutor for applied sciences in the education center on base. In the summer of 2014, I was involved in Northeastern Illinois University's EMERGE program, which is designed to aid entering freshman in the transition to college level mathematics. I also taught a GRE prep course for the quantitative section of the test during that time and since then, the GRE has become the primary subject I tutor.

Overall I am very easy going and really have aspirations to teach, so tutoring is something I don't just do on the side but something that I really enjoy and am passionate about!

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve your academic goals!

Algebra 2

I have passed the algebra test offered by WyzAnt and have been tutoring students requiring work in algebra for quite some time. When I tutored at my institution during my undergrad, many of the students I attended to were struggling with pre-college concepts. This enabled me to develop good techniques for tutoring the basics.
Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have passed WyzAnt's exams for calculus and algebra and I have an extensive background in both these areas. I was a peer leader for both calculus I and college algebra at my undergrad institution for about three years. During that time I also tutored at the library of my school for subjects from pre-college math through calculus III. Additionally, I know math can be hard to study for, and I have developed some excellent techniques over the years that have proven successful in my courses.

Fantastic Tutor: Really Understands how to Teach!

Jenna was awesome! She really understand how to teach you versus just throwing all of the information at you! She comes with plenty of study materials which is great because you’re both on the same page! I highly recommend her to anyone studying for the GREs.

Rachel, 4 lessons with Jenna

Fantastic GRE Tutor!

Jenna was a fantastic tutor. I took the GRE once before and absolutely bombed the Quantitative section. The second time around, Jenna was truly the reason I was able to do so well. Not only did she walk me through every single step of problems I was struggling with, she also gave me test-taking tips and strategies that made all the difference on test day. If you have anxiety around test-taking, especially with math, Jenna is the perfect tutor for you!

Fantastic Tutor

Jenna helped me prep for a math test and she was extremely helpful. She provided plenty of practice materials for me and always went over things in detail. I now feel more confident in my mathematics ability and will continue to use her services in the future whenever the need arises. I've already recommended her to my friends so if you're thinking about getting a tutor I would suggest seriously considering Jenna.

Knowledgeable tutor ~ Calc 2

My son is taking Calc 2 online and Jenna is helping him to grasp the concepts and succeed in the class. She is very good at teaching and I am thankful he contacted her. The online tutoring will help whether he is home in MA or back to school in VA. Thanks Jenna!

Amy, 21 lessons with Jenna

Thank you!

First lesson with her was very solid, she gave me great tips for the test which put my mind at ease. Looking forward to working with her again! Try her out :)

Jaretta, 5 lessons with Jenna

Percipient and extremely friendly

Our first lesson went very well. The session didn't even feel like an entire hour. Jenna is charismatic and knows exactly what she is doing. We reviewed my previous Calculus test and started some homework. She was helpful and patient.

Excellent Tutor!

Jenna helped my son catch up in a calculus class when he joined more than a week after the semester had already started. After three hours with Jenna--they worked non-stop--he felt 100% comfortable with the material, and ready for his upcoming quiz and homework. Jenna was additionally extraordinarily flexible and compassionate, fitting my son in even though she really didn't have the time to work with him. I recommend Jenna without reservation.

M., 1 lesson with Jenna

Knowledgeable and dedicated tutor.

Jenna is always prepared with an abundance of materials for me as well as a plan of what to cover each meeting. She is very patient and explains all concepts very well. Jenna is good at tailoring every lesson to the students exact needs.

Gianna, 17 lessons with Jenna

Very competent

Jenna did a great job in showing me the way to set up problems and to get to start thinking more "mathematically" which is something I really need to improve in. She was nice and straightforward.
