I have been teaching math for several years now and understand the need for a good foundation. I work with students to find any concepts they have missed or do not fully understand. My goal in teaching math is always comprehension not grades. After laying a good foundation, it is amazing to see the improvement and success my students have had!

Math suck! I get it. But like a coin, there's another side to it. It can be fun or at least tolerable. I'll teach you not to overthink it and just do math. It's simple, really. All my students, from ages 8 to 20 all end up saying, "Oh, that wasn't so hard!"

I like to + some fun and humor in my tutor sessions so it should be more tolerable for you. Also, it makes it stick longer!

I received a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at the University of Puget Sound in 2016 and am open to all ages and all levels.

Jenna is talented in both English and math. She is a professional and patient tutor that helps kids when they struggle on a certain topic. She just fully prepared my daughter's ISEE test (It’s a very difficult test) in only one month, and helped her pass the ISEE test with good scores. She also helped my son pass the Advanced Math course in 2020. Jenna is a reliable tutor. I highly recommend her for tutoring!
Geetu Goel
Jenna teaches both my kids - one is in middle school doing algebra and second is in elementary school. Jenna is detail oriented, organized and highly qualified. My daughter had couple of challenging topics and Ms Jenna was very patient in clarifying her doubts and strengthening her fundamentals. She has also instilled lot of good learning habits which has increased accuracy and efficiency while appearing for tests. My son is in elementary and Ms Jenna is very patent with him while teaching advance math topics like fractions. Ms Jenna is very resourceful, highly approachable and my kids really like to learn from her. I highly recommend Ms Jenna for tutoring.

Mary Lou is a loving teacher and truly concerned with my daughter’s success. She is very flexible. Sometimes my daughter needs help with her homework, Mary Lou will change her schedule to accommodate her. She always has a smile on her face that makes my introverted daughter comfortable. My daughter and I are always talking about how kind and polite she is. My daughter’s understanding of Algebra has shown remarkable improvement. Whatever my daughter does not understand at school, Mary Lou helps her to understand. I cannot write enough about her. Thank you Mary Lou.

I've been teaching Algebra for 10 years. I strive to show students the beauty behind mathematics and encourage them to enjoy it. I work with students at their own pace with the main focus being on developing the confidence to be able to understand what questions are asking and how to solve problems. I prefer to spend the first two lessons testing a student's confidence, strengths, and weaknesses before I select the teaching materials. I cannot wait to help you reach your math goals!

I understand that many people are really anxious when it comes to Algebra, so I strive NEVER to make anyone feel stupid or wrong for asking ANY question. It is true that math can be very unforgiving, but that doesn't mean that teachers have to be the same way. Instead of viewing myself as an expert that must impart his knowledge to others, I like to think of myself as a guide not only that helps people reach their destination but also one who points out interesting things along the way, making their experience both beneficial and enjoyable! And, honestly, math is pretty awesome! It's empowering; and it doesn't have to be hard. I really think everyone can learn math!

Over my many years of working with math learners, I have come to appreciate that there are many great ways to think about solving a problem - not just one. So, in a typical session, I ask lots of questions rather than do a lot of lecturing. I feel like questions help me to understand your thinking process and your ...
