Jenny received both her BS and PhD from MIT, majoring in the joint archaeology/materials science program. She is Phi Beta Kappa, a National Merit Scholar, winner of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, an MIT Presidential Fellowship, and was awarded a FAMSI Research Grant. Her education combines both engineering and social sciences/humanities (she also minored in art history at MIT), so she tutors a variety of different subjects, particularly in the sciences and math, although she particularly enjoys integrating multiple subjects for students.
Jenny has been tutoring for over seven years and has worked with students ranging in age from late elementary through graduate school. She has lectured three full-year subjects at MIT, but enjoys the face-to-face contact involved in tutoring. Jenny has also taught at Brown.
During college, she studied at Oxford University for a semester, and her archaeological research was conducted in Belize and Mexico. She has spent over two years living and working in Mexico.
Jenny loves to cook (primarily Thai and Indian food), read almost anything, sing in the local community choir, and she is a certified SCUBA diver. She's traveled to five continents so far, and is looking forward to traveling to Africa and Antarctica some day. She also had her appendix removed in rural Argentina on New Year's Eve. Jenny is originally from Ohio.
Literature and English“Carolyn has helped J. a lot in his English papers and he's left his sessions with her enthusiastic and inspired both about literary analysis in general. He finds her guidance very helpful and it sounds like she's been able to get him to think more thoroughly about assignments. ”
