Jennifer's Bio

An expert tutor of ten years, Jennifer earned her BS in mechanical engineering and her BA in business economics from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she was frequently on the Dean's Honor List. Since 2010, Jennifer has been tutoring high school and college students in math, science, test prep, and other subjects. "I love tutoring because it gives me the opportunity to help students achieve their stated goals," Jennifer says.

Jennifer started tutoring her senior year in high school when a calculus student one year below her asked for her guidance. "I was able to help by showing him the shortcut method for taking derivatives... and how position, velocity, and acceleration are related. I've been hooked on tutoring ever since!" In math, Jennifer tutors algebra 1, algebra 2, math analysis, statistics, pre-calculus, and calculus. She also teaches macro- and micro- economics courses, first-year chemistry to second-year physics, reading comprehension, and essay writing. "Having gone through them myself, I am familiar with Honors, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate programs," Jennifer adds.

"I believe that it's more effective for parents and students to turn away from external esteem (i.e. the actual test scores) and focus more on the self-esteem that comes from diligently attending to the learning process," Jennifer says. "With every major competitive goal, such as getting a certain score on the SAT/ACT, there is a fundamental process of attaining smaller goals. The fulfillment of these smaller goals leads to self-esteem and greater happiness in the long run."

In high school and college, Jennifer practiced martial arts. She is now instructor level in Taekwondo.
