About Jana

Hi there!

I am a DC professional working in the non-profit sector. In high school I tutored my peers to successfully pass high school English, as well as elementary school students in general studies. At university, I was a math and reading tutor for high school students. In my capacity as an advocacy professional, I have conducted training programs for both graduate and undergraduate students.

I like to take an organized approach to tutoring and to develop a plan of action in which we set clear goals for our time together. The tutoring sessions are like a team project and will be most effective if we are working toward the same goals!

I am best suited to tutor in subjects like English, history (U.S. and world), government and politics, philosophy and other social sciences.

I grew up as an avid reader and like to share my passion and enthusiasm for words and literature with my students! I am also a trained public speaker and frequently give presentations as part of my job. I will bring this experience to any tutoring opportunity.

Thanks for reading my profile. Now I would love to hear from you, what your needs are and how we can work together to meet your educational goals!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

I majored in government at my undergraduate university and received a Master of Arts in international relations.

Public Speaking

I was a rhetoric and communications minor in undergrad and have participated in theater my entire life. I also did competitive public speaking throughout high school. My current occupation requires that I frequently speak in public at conferences, meetings with high-level government officials and at panel events. I am an excellent public speaker and enjoy working with others to develop their presentation skills.
