Jenny Moore Tutoring
I love tutoring! When a student has a "light-bulb" moment, it gives me an incredible feeling of accomplishment. I have been tutoring for over 10 years, at every level from elementary school through college. I started when I was in college, working for the Economics Department of my university as a tutor. I have also tutored privately, and worked for private tutoring companies. In addition to tutoring math from Arithmetic through Calculus, I tutor Economics and SAT/ACT preparation.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
When working with a new student, I think it's important to determine what their current skill level is and where they want to wind up. With math, it's very important to shore up the basics before attempting to learn new material. Without the proper foundation, it's impossible to be successful.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Bachelor's of Science in Economics with a minor in Math. I have nearly 10 years of professional tutoring experience.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
My hourly rate varies depending on the topic, but I offer the first hour for half price so that we can make sure we are a good fit with a lower risk to you. I also offer a free hour if you refer another student to me who completes at least five hours of tutoring with me.
How did you get started teaching?
I first tutored math when I was in junior high, so it's always been something I've had an affiinity for. I started doing tutoring professionally when I was completing my college degree. The on campus tutoring lab for my major contacted me based on recommendations from professors I had had classes with and offered me a tutoring job.
What types of students have you worked with?
I've worked with a wide variety of students, from elementary school through college and from student struggling to keep up to those looking for enrichment when the school curriculum wasn't challenging them enough.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
My advice to a student looking to hire a math tutor is to make sure that the tutor is able to explain things until they make sense to you. There is more than one way to approach many math problems, and your tutor should be able to offer you an explanation that helps you thoroughly understand what to do.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Students should think through what their specific goals are. What is it you want to get out of tutoring? Do you want to improve your grades? Your study skills? Prepare for a future test or class? How much time are you willing to devote to those goals, both with your tutor and on your own between lessons? What are you looking for in a tutor?
