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 strategies, 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 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 have 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 $85/hour. I require 24 hours' notice for lesson cancellations.

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.

Wonderful Organized Tutor

Just had another wonderful lesson with Jennifer. She answered all my questions based on the practice problems she had previously assigned and still made time to work through some new topics. Cannot recommend her enough!

Wonderful Organized Tutor

Jennifer was knowledgeable, patient, thorough and incredibly well organized. She helped me come up with an efficient study plan and then started diving into concepts right away. I booked more sessions with her and am looking forward to them. She has already sent additional resources for me to work through before our next session so that I can maximize my time with her.

Knowledgeable and very patient tutor.

Jennifer has been assisting me in preparing for the GRE. My main struggles are geometry and she is doing an amazing job with breaking down all of the basic concepts I've always struggled with. She always has me very excited for my tutoring sessions and I'm so ready to go and crush the GRE!

Great tutor for the GRE!

She really explains things well and goes into the "why" behind the math. Focuses on problem areas and has tons of materials and explanations. Would highly recommend.

Helpful with GRE prep!

Jennifer knew how to help me figure out the QR questions I didn't understand. She also had helpful information about the test and how scoring works as well as tips to succeed with the writing sections. I would request her help again.

Review for Jennifer F.

Jennifer was an amazing tutor. I am dyslexic and before I found her for GRE tutoring I must have gone through 5 different tutors that were not helpful or supportive. Most did not understand my learning disability but Jennifer was amazing! She was patient with me and knew how to help me understand each concept. After studying with her I received a much higher GRE score then I thought it would. I did better then I was doing on the practice test! She is an amazing tutor and I could not have done it with out her. Jennifer, you are great and thank you so much!!
