About Jan

I taught Algebra and Geometry in the classroom for more than sixteen years. I also tutor Common Core.
I have been tutoring for more than 15 years with great success. I have a degree from Indiana University and a lifetime California Teaching Credential.

I love math and English and enjoy working with students, seeing their progress and success. Knowledge opens many doors; it is a joy to see students "catch on" and remove mental blocks from their lives. My approach is to teach students to become self-reliant, learning from textbooks and teaching materials.

Great tutor that is flexible — I contacted Jan on short notice to prep my daughter for the SAT. Jan was very accommodating to our schedule and managed to get in several solid tutoring sessions. She quickly picked up on where additional help was needed and focused attention on those areas. I am confident my daughter is better prepared now than she was before working with Jan......Thank You Jan!!!! ...
