Miss Jenny M. of Los Angeles CA USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Miss Jenny M.
Gender: Female   Age: 22-25
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have been a teacher at a Detroit inner-city public school with the Teach for America non-profit organization, certified to teach K-12 science, English, Public Speaking, and SAT/ACT Prep. I have also taught Advanced ESL at the Harker School: English Language Institute and Mathematics/English at Chicago Public Schools.

I have a Master of Arts in Teaching from USC Rossier School of Education in Secondary Science and English with a 4.0 GPA, and a life-time member of the Phi Kappa Phi academic honor society. I have also received my teaching certification from University of Michigan's School of Education.
I am currently a PhD student at the USC Rossier School of Education studying Urban Education Policy.

I understand that the SAT is a crucial aspect of undergraduate admissions, as the GRE is for graduate admissions, and the preparation and study needed for these exams is just as critical as it is for the schoolwork in class. With myself as a tutor, the students will not only have a strong foundation in math and writing, but also learn all the key tricks and shortcuts to scoring in the 98-99th percentile on the SAT/GRE, giving them valuable leverage into any university of their choosing.
Additionally, I have four years of teaching experience as an English teacher to students of all ages back in China. I have taught young elementary school students all the way up to professional school students. From this, I have a clear understanding of how to appropriately communicate with students of different ages, and have incredible patience and ability to help a student succeed. I have also tutored a number of students on the SAT/GRE, and all have reached their target score.
