Hello, My name is Janice. I am currently an undergraduate student at SUNY Albany. I am majoring in Math and minoring in Biology, and applying for medical school. I am interested in working with students and helping them achieve success in whatever subject they are struggling with. School is important and sometimes students get stressed out. I love to help students understand their weaknesses and work on it with them. I am mainly able to help out with any maths and science classes including biology, chemistry, algebra, calculus etc. I can help students from all ages of elementary school to high school. In high school, I have taken all the regents examinations and was in all honors classes, graduating with a Honors Diploma. Regents examinations are important to get accepted into college and I have done 90 and above on all my exams. I can help students who are preparing and planning to take any regents exams. My goal is the success of the student. I want to be able to not torture them or overwhelm them but help them come to an understanding of their subject in a fun but learning manner. My methods include a lot of practice problems and helping them understand the concept so that they can apply that to any question. I have done tutoring in high school, and sometimes in college I have helped my friends with their math homework. I have taught kids in classes from 7th and 8th grades mainly in other countries since I have done a lot of volunteer work in various impoverished areas around the world. I am looking forward to meeting with you and helping you out in any way possible! My success is when the student has developed self confidence, improved their academic performance, and to encourage them to become independent learners. I look forward to working with you!

I was always first stand or second stand for seating line up. I also was in an honors orchestra called string ensemble for 6 years. I was also inducted into Tri-M Honor Society which is the Music Honor Society. I was also asked to play for my school shows and plays as part of pit.

I love playing the piano! It is the one hobby that I am glad my parents introduced me to as a child. I have been playing the piano 8 years straight. I had a private instructor that would teach me and have all the old beginner books she used to help me learn. I took part in school recitals and my instructors piano recitals.

I enjoy playing the piano and would love working with anyone who has this same interest!
