About Jovanna

I am currently a student at FIU seeking work as a tutor. I love to tutor math. It's my best subject and I love that there are different ways to get to an answer, so if what your teacher shows you confuses you or doesn't work for you we can find another way that does. I graduated in 2012 with a 4.9 GPA and in the top 6 of my class. I took my SAT junior year and got a 1670. I took my ACT senior year and got a 28.

I am a psychology major at FIU and science has always been a strong subject for me. I also took AP English classes in high school and passed so I am able to help with English, reading, and writing.

I tutored friends and classmates in high school to help them pass their math and science classes. In order to help you understand a subject better I will help you with your homework and use your notes to explain the topic in a way that is easier to understand. I would also be happy to go over previous tests and quizzes and help you prepare for future tests and quizzes. I know some subjects may seem really hard but sometimes all you need is a different way of looking at it.

I love working with kids because I want to be a pediatrician and I always get along with them. I can also tutor teenagers because the subjects they are learning are fresh in my mind and I'm easier to approach because of our closeness in age.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Algebra 1

Math is one of my strongest subjects, especially algebra. When I took the honors class I passed with an A.

Algebra 2

When I took Algebra 2 I got one of the best math teachers at my school which helped me master the subject. I got As the entire year and helped my friends pass as well.

College Counseling

I am currently an undergraduate university student. Because of this, I have experienced filling various applications for different colleges and universities. I have also done a variety of research on different schools when applying. I have experience applying for financial aid (i.e., Bright Futures, FAFSA, etc.) and scholarships. I can assist in filling out applications, writing admissions essays, and balancing the pros and cons in order to evaluate major future decisions.

Elementary (K-6th)

I love working with kids at different educational levels. I tutor for a variety of age groups and have experience in assisting children. I know it requires a lot of patience, and I have all the patience tutoring requires. In my opinion, Elementary schools provide a foundation of learning in the classroom, and I strive to reinforce this content at home. My strengths are math and science, but I am proficient in most subjects. I am currently a student at FIU.

Finite Math

I took Finite Math during the Spring 2014 semester at FIU. I received As on all 4 exams through out the class and finished the class with an A. I have also taken statistics in the past so I've become very familiar with all the topics covered in the class.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I've been using PowerPoint for years for school projects. I'm very good at using all the tools in PowerPoint and can bring previous presentations as a reference on how use use the program to its full potential.

Microsoft Word

I've used Microsoft Word for both Mac and PC. I've written multiple papers using the programs for years and have been exposed to most versions of Office including 2011.

Psychology

I took AP psychology last year and I earned a 4 on the AP exam at the end of he year.

Study Skills

I graduated high school in 2012 with a 4.9 GPA and in the top 6 of my class. I took my SAT junior year and got a 1670 .Whenever I study for tests and quizzes I like to find ways to make the material memorable without sitting and trying to memorize a book.
