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, 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 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.

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

I charge $45/hour. I offer a reduced rate if you book 3+ sessions with me. I look forward to hearing from you to help you achieve the success you're seeking!

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.

ACT English

I scored in the 99th percentile on ACT English and Reading. What's more, I'm an experienced teacher who can communicate my knowledge effectively to help you strengthen your areas of weakness and achieve a higher score. During my time as a university-level English composition instructor, I worked with many students to improve their written English skills, including grammar, syntax, style, and organization. Leave it to me to show you the ropes and get the high-quality, expert-led practice you need under your belt.

ACT Math

To score well on ACT math, you need a firm grasp of the content covered on the test, quick computational skills, good test pacing, and insight into the ACT's favorite question types, as well as the tricks to use and traps to avoid along the way. I scored in the 99th percentile on ACT Math, and since then, I've worked with many teenagers as a private math tutor. I especially enjoy the puzzle-like challenge of ACT math questions. Leave it to me to show you the ropes and get the high-quality, expert-led practice you need under your belt.

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.

SAT Math

To score well on SAT math, you need a firm grasp of the content covered on the test, quick computational skills, good test pacing, and insight into the College Board's favorite question types, as well as the tricks to use and traps to avoid along the way. I've worked with many teenagers as a private math tutor and especially enjoy the puzzle-like challenge of SAT math questions. Leave it to me to show you the ropes and get the high-quality, expert-led practice you need under your belt.

SAT Reading

I scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT Verbal Reasoning section, which has since been renamed and reformatted many times. But no matter what new challenges the SAT throws your way, I can help you navigate the test with clarity and confidence. During my time as a university-level English composition instructor, I worked with many students to improve their written English skills, including grammar, syntax, style, and organization. Leave it to me to show you the ropes and get the high-quality, expert-led practice you need under your belt.

Incredibly knowledgeable and helpful

With Jennifer's help once a week for about a month leading up to my test, I was able to improve my score by six points, which really does make a large difference. Not only did we review the concepts necessary to complete the problems, but also elements of test taking strategy which I would not have known otherwise. She was very patient, and truly focused on the areas in which I needed the most imp
