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 studying and learning or can't quite claim that level of devotion, you've come to the right place.

I've taught several GRE prep courses, including a math refresher course, at the University of Washington. I've also developed many strategies to help students improve their performance on the SAT and ACT. These tests do require specific math and verbal knowledge, but just as importantly, they also require problem-solving abilities, critical thinking skills, and logic. I focus on both the content and the strategy, using a selection of the best prep books and online material.

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 also worked with many non-native speakers of English--including Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Iranian students--to improve their grammar, reading, and speaking skills.

My goal is for you to become an independent learner and confident test-taker. Whatever your needs, I'm here to help!

I charge $50/hour. I require 24 hours' notice for lesson cancellations. Please note, I tutor afternoons only.

I look forward to hearing from you to help you achieve the success you're seeking!

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.

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.

Methodical tutor

I enjoyed the lesson so much. We were working on GRE writing skills, and Jennifer patiently went step by step with me to build an outline of the essay. I am looking forward to our next session.

Yumiko, 1 lesson with Jennifer

Knowledgeable and understanding tutor

Jennifer was amazing! Very patient, helpful & fun! She pushed me but in ways that I needed so that I could learn and make the most out of our sessions. I needed help with all subjects in the math section of the GRE and she really understood what I needed and was always willing to explain the questions/methods. Jennifer really made the most of our time together and sent me great helpful practice work. Jennifer definitely improved my testing and math confidence and I wish that I had more time to learn from her! Thank you so much, Jennifer. Highly recommended!!

Grace, 6 lessons with Jennifer

Thank You!!

Jennifer is the best! She takes the time to make sure that you fully understand the concepts and what the questions are really asking. After each lesson, I was excited to work on my practice problems! I learned skills that I know I will continue to use beyond my test. Her tips and strategies helped me tremendously and I cannot thank her enough. Jennifer… thank you!! The way you teach and explain concepts are so helpful. You gave me confidence going into my test. I am so glad that I got to work with you. You have truly helped me!

Knowledgable and patient tutor

She has been helping me study for the GRE. I have had two, 90 minute lessons with her and she is vey patient and helpful. She does not continue to a different topic unless you have understood the one you are working on. She gives you several sheets of problems to work on your own to practice and if you have any questions she is more than happy to help.

Knowledgable and Patient Tutor

Jennifer was extremely helpful building my math foundation for the GRE. She found ways for me to relate to the material and answered any questions I had. She was patient as I took note and tried to work out the problems on my own.
