About Jennifer


Bio

I attended Carnegie Mellon University for undergraduate school majoring in Physics, and University of Pittsburgh for graduate school receiving a Master's in Neuroscience. I've been tutoring high school and college students for a several years, most often for precalculus, calculus, physics, SAT exams, and GRE exams.

I attended Carnegie Mellon University for undergraduate school majoring in Physics, and University of Pittsburgh for graduate school receiving a Master's in Neuroscience. I've been tutoring high school and college students for a several years, most often for precalculus, calculus, physics, SAT exams, and GRE exams.

With this strong background in science, I've had a lot of practice explaining abstract concepts, calculating problems, and studying data. I have a college level or greater understanding of calculus, physics, biology, chemistry, psychology, and statistics. I have also performed well on standardized aptitude tests (SAT: 790 verbal, 720 math; GRE: 660 verbal, 800 math before test score scales changed in 2011).

I enjoy doing the best job I can to help people feel confident with their subject and fill in gaps that might not have been thoroughly explored on class. I try to focus on the style of learning that works best for each individual student. I like to stay available and flexible so I can always help someone when they need it. In between sessions I'm always available for additional questions by correspondence.

Please don't hesitate to ask me questions about how I can help you. I'm happy to take as much time as you need to see if this is a good match for you.

AP physics review

She helped my daughter prepare for AP physics in advance by going through challenging problems and explaining key concepts. Her method of teaching is easy to understand and she is able to explain problems thoroughly in the littlest amount of time possible, maximizing the tutoring session. She is also very nice and friendly, as well as easy to talk to. My daughter likes her.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jennifer did a great job working with my son on AB Calculus C. She patiently worked with him on homework problems and helped him to gain confidence. She is very knowledgeable and I would definitely ask her to help out again. I heard the two of them laughing a few times, so I know my son was very comfortable with her.
