About Jennifer

Hi! I'm Jen. I love helping students reach the "light bulb moment," where a concept is grasped and their eyes light up with understanding.

I have been tutoring, off and on, since my senior year in high school (almost 20 years ago), where I was 3rd in my class. After working as a tutor/lab assistant in college, I graduated summa cum laude with a BS in Chemistry (Biochemistry concentration) from Howard Payne University. The biochem concentration means I have numerous chemistry and biology classes under my degree. After some odd jobs, including scoring standardized tests, I worked in a food testing lab for more than 6 years, first as a chemistry tech, then as the chemistry supervisor. Even while in the lab, my favorite part was training others on the instruments and techniques used. I eventually decided to go back to school and graduated in 2014 from Baylor University with a Masters in Chemistry. While at Baylor, I taught labs, including General Chemistry, Intro to Bio-organic Chemistry (for nutrition majors), Biochemistry, and Physical Biochemistry. I strove to find ways to help the students understand the concepts covered and worked with each student as much as possible.

As a tutor, I can work with you one-on-one and find a way to help you understand the concepts giving you trouble. Let me help you with your science class, and we'll see what we can achieve together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Biochemistry

Biochemistry is my favorite subject. I love studying and understanding the chemistry of life. That is why my area of study in graduate school was biochemistry. I have taught biochemistry labs and can help you understand any of the concepts from the lectures or the labs.

Chemistry

I have a Master's in Chemistry and have been studying or working in the field of Chemistry for almost 20 years.

Organic Chemistry

I earned A's in both Organic Chemistry I and II while at Howard Payne University for my undergraduate studies. I also tutored the subject at HPU. Later, at Baylor University for graduate school, I reviewed/studied all of the information from both classes for my qualifying exams. Since then, I have successfully tutored students in Organic Chemistry. I can help you meet your goals and succeed in your class.

Jennifer has been preparing my son to take a chemistry retake. He's a 7th grader at a charter school, since then I see him more confident in his skills. I thought I was going to have a hard time taking him to a tutor, since he's kind of shy, but he's actually very excited to go every time he has his class. Thanks Jennifer for all your wonderful help.
