Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I love helping students learn math and chemistry. I have experience in tutoring high school and college levels of algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and chemisttry.
I have developed a more hands-on approach to my tutoring methods. Instead of simply showing students how to "do problems," I coach my students through each step of the problem-solving process. I do not skip steps with my students, and try to give as effective, thorough and insightful a lesson as possible. Not only do I try to impart my knowledge of math and chemistry and to my students, I deliver lessons in a patient and friendly manner, and even try to bring a sense of humor in order to make my students feel more at ease and relaxed. I found that this actually helps to make lessons more effective and productive for everyone involved, students, tutor, parents alike.
My educational background consists of a heavy dose of science and math. I am currently a Civil Engineering major at Lone Star College- Kingwood, and I am loving every minute of it.
Thank you for viewing my profile and your interest in my services! I am always happy to help new students who require a regular tutoring schedule. I hope to hear from you soon! Hello! My name is Jennifer, and I love helping students learn math and chemistry. I have experience in tutoring high school and college levels of algebra, … Read more
Jennifer is tutoring my child in Algebra 2. She is always on-time, comes prepared and is a high-quality tutor. I highly recommend her.
Jennifer is very thorough and patient in her explanations. She is extremely helpful and shares her understanding and logic regarding the concepts of Chemistry that I am covering. She has helped me to better understand the periodic table and has familiarized and aided me in the many different calculations I must use. Jennifer has also been extremely helpful in helping me to understand and complete the lab assignments. All in all she is excellent and I am lucky to have her as my tutor.
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.
This is the subject with which I first began tutoring math students. Here is where I believe it is important to teach students become truly "self-sufficient" in their math journey: I do not allow the use of calculators when I help Algebra students. I believe they need to develop their algebra skills with the use of their own mind and good old-fashioned pencil and paper. This is how I learned math, and I believe I have strong math skills because of that.
This is where Algebra gets more involved but more exciting. Here is where I like to help students really become algebra experts so they are better prepared for higher levels of math. In addition to their regular assignments, I like to give students supplemental problems that provide extra but fun challenges, so they can strengthen their problem-solving skills.
Chemistry is a fun science that often requires specific calculations- this is where I can help. With my strong algebra and problem-solving skills, I am able to help students with both chemical calculations and lab reports. I can also help students understand some of the more abstract laws and theories of chemistry.
Geometry is one of the more fun topics within math, and one that I like to help students with in particular. With some basic geometry formulas, the students can solve almost any type of geometry problem. I believe it is my job as a tutor to help students learn which formulas to apply to solve problems. I also use a lot of drawings and solid model tools to help students visualize geometric shapes.
This is a subject where I find it is really important to make sure students have a firm foundation in algebra and trigonometry, in order to get them ready for the challenges they will meet in Calculus. I work with students to make sure they are able to successfully handle the very heavy algebra that they encounter in this class. I often find it is necessary to give students supplemental algebra and trigonometry problems along with their coursework, so they do not fall behind when they begin Calculus.
This is a subject where I use a lot of algebra, drawings and visualizations to help students understand problems. Trigonometry is heavily dependent on visualization and geometry, and I make sure that this is addressed when helping students. There is also quite a bit of algebra involved with this subject, and I make sure that students have a good understanding of algebraic concepts, so they do not fall behind on topics such as inverses and trigonometric identities.
