About Jennifer

Welcome! I'm a Yale grad with a deep love of learning, a passion for teaching, and a great respect for individual differences. Whether you love learning or have yet to develop that love, you've come to the right place.

I've taught several GRE prep courses and GRE math refresher courses at the University of Washington. The GRE tests math and verbal knowledge, but just as importantly, it also tests problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and logic. I focus on both the content and the strategy.

As a university-level English composition instructor, I've graded more than 25 papers each week, marking each grammatical, syntactical, and organizational error. I work with students to be able to spot their own errors and to write so as not to be misunderstood.

I've worked with many teenagers and adults as a private math tutor. I especially enjoy the challenge of explaining math concepts in new ways that make sense to my learner. Offering clear examples and applications is an important part of my job as a math tutor.

For five years, I owned my own piano studio, where I taught more than 20 students each week. My curriculum includes theory, technical exercises, composition, musicianship, and student-selected pieces. One parent called my approach a ''broader music learning experience than just piano playing.'' I work to help people make music, not just play an instrument.

As a tutor, my single overarching goal is to help you become an independent learner. Whatever your needs, I'm here to help!

I charge $30/hour, and offer discounts for longer sessions (2+ hours) and for groups. I look forward to hearing from you to help you achieve the success you're seeking!

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.

Algebra 1

I've worked with many teenagers and adults to understand and apply algebra 1 principles. Some of my students just need a refresher; others need to work on fundamentals. I like to work problems forwards and backwards to make sure the student understands not only how to set up certain types of problems, but how to think them through and how to check their answers.

GRE

I've taught several GRE prep courses and GRE math refresher courses at the University of Washington. The GRE does test actual math and verbal knowledge. But, just as importantly, it also tests problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and logic. I focus on both the content and the strategy.

Piano

I took 10 years of formal piano lessons including music theory classes in high school and college. I consistently earned top marks in adjudicated festivals and events. From 2010-2015, I owned my own studio, where I taught 20+ piano lessons a week. I've also given several solo recitals; performed in a number of ensembles, including concerto with orchestra; accompanied dozens of vocalists, instrumentalists, and choirs; and participated in improvisational music events.
