About Jennifer


Bio

I have taught college-level physics and computer science classes, and I have also taught English as a Second Language to adult immigrants in the US, as well as overseas. I have tutored and mentored students from elementary age to adult in math, English, computer programming, database design, bicycle mechanics, trail building, and web site development, and have developed curriculum materials for English, computer science, and web development topics. I am also the author of a programming book...

I have taught college-level physics and computer science classes, and I have also taught English as a Second Language to adult immigrants in the US, as well as overseas. I have tutored and mentored students from elementary age to adult in math, English, computer programming, database design, bicycle mechanics, trail building, and web site development, and have developed curriculum materials for English, computer science, and web development topics. I am also the author of a programming book (published by O'Reilly Media), and have written and edited many technical documentation pages for open-source software projects.

My goal is that people I tutor, teach, and mentor will become self-driven, self-directed, life-long learners.

At the university level, I studied physics, which of course involved considerable course work in advanced mathematics and calculus. I continued to work in physics for about two years after my PhD. I studied French in high school, and Spanish at the university level; I have maintained proficiency in both languages through travel, reading, and listening to podcasts.

Most of my post PhD professional life, I have been employed as a software developer. I have been running my own freelance web development and web development tutoring business since 2001, and I regularly volunteer as a programmer, tech writer, and mentor with the Drupal open-source software project. In recent years, I have been mostly working with PHP, JavaScript, SQL, HTML, CSS, Twig, and XML/XSL. I have also worked with Perl, C/C++, Java, Visual Basic, Linux shell scripting, R, and even Fortran in the past.

Tutor responded:

Thanks! Your son is great to work with too -- excited to learn and ready to go at each lesson time.

She is very knowledge,patient and fun to work with.

Jennifer assisted me with problems in Eclipse and Bitbucket for my college course in Computer Science. I did not understand the concepts of my assignment. When I first read it, I thought I would never get past the first out of fifteen steps. She assisted me in completing the assignment in one sitting. She later emailed me notes on what we discussed, my weakness, how to improve and what to keep an eye on. She is the Best kept Secret. I highly recommended Jennifer H.

Jennifer assisted me with problems in Eclipse and Bitbucket for my college course in Computer Science. I did not understand the concepts of my assignment. I thought I would never get past the first out of fifteen steps in my assignment. Jennifer analyzed the assignment and made her own notes of questions for me. She assisted me in completing the assignment in one sitting. She emailed me notes on what we discussed, my weakness and what to watch out in the future in Bitbucket. She is the Best kept Secret. I highly recommended Jennifer H.
