"University of Chicago Philosopher Ready to Tutor!"
I have a keen eye for details and I'm usually the first person my colleagues and friends turn to when they need critique.
I have mastered the fundamentals of technical writing but also I value eloquence and beauty in a turn of phrase. I can make any paper not only good on a basic level but great in that it will dazzle with its style and subject matter.
Also, I have taken a year long course with one of the premier writing consultants in America. Larry McEnerney of the University of Chicago. He is the director of the writing program and not only specializes in teaching academics how to ... More
I love learning and helping others to learn. I was born in the Twin Cities and raised in Hastings, MN, where I graduated from High School.

"Graduate Level Math and Science Tutor"
I have been passionate about tutoring and teaching since I was a little girl. When I went off to college, I knew I wanted to study biology, since it was challenging, but interesting at the same time. As an undergraduate, I took 4 years of biology related courses (you name it, I've probably extensively studied it), 2+ years of chemistry courses, and over a year with math courses. Math and chemistry have always come easy to me even though they were not my specific major, and I feel very confide... ... More
I recently completed a two hour session with Jinjer and was bowled over by her knowledge and ability to share it. She was able to walk me through using PhotoShop Elements and clear up my confusion without making me overwhelmed.
I will definitely call her again when I'm ready for the next step; I really enjoyed working with her.

"Math and Science Tutor for Active or Artistic Students"
For many students, Algebra 1 is the first time they struggle with math because it is the first time that students are using an entirely abstract system of notation. Whereas numbers have exactly one meaning that can be connected to physical objects such as fingers or other counters, variables have no set meaning, and change in different contexts. The true meaning of variables can be understood through an exploration of changing patterns. Those patterns can be tied to visual representations, stories, real-world problems, music or other methods that resonate with the student.
Algebra 1 is also f ... More
Mike and I worked on my math and electronics homework assignments. The assignments included solving for variables,converting metric units, and determining SI units. We also worked on problems involving power, current, and voltage.
Mike has 20 years of teaching and it shows. As a returning student, his knowledge and teaching skills are just what I needed to refresh my algebra skills.
