About Janice


Bio

I was always the student helping out my peers in class and have had plans of becoming a teacher for a long time. I have a passion for helping people, and nothing is more satisfying for me than the "aha" moment people get when they finally understand something. I am very passionate about teaching and believe that the purpose of education is not to earn a grade, but to pass on knowledge and mastery of a subject. Understanding and application, not grades, are the foundation of learning....

I was always the student helping out my peers in class and have had plans of becoming a teacher for a long time. I have a passion for helping people, and nothing is more satisfying for me than the "aha" moment people get when they finally understand something. I am very passionate about teaching and believe that the purpose of education is not to earn a grade, but to pass on knowledge and mastery of a subject. Understanding and application, not grades, are the foundation of learning.

Although I have always been a fairly successful student, I have had my fair of struggles with difficult subjects and I understand that not everyone learns the same way. I have powered through and used brute force memorization to learn Chinese, practice-tested my way into getting a 2170 on the SAT, and used passion as inspiration while reading my Latin text books. There are a endless amount of ways to teach and I intend to be as creative and diligent as possible while catering to a student's individual needs.

I have always had a knack for mathematical and logical thinking. I am also able to clearly convey my train of thought so that people can understand the "why" behind certain mathematical concepts.

I have read recreationally and for classes for my entire life. I have taken and passed exams for both AP Language arts and AP Literature. I got a perfect score for the reading section on my SAT.

I know that kids learn best by playing, and that there is need for a more interactive and individualized medium in teaching children. I both love to play games, and am great at designing games which teach through experience.

I was a Latin and Classical Cultures double major as an honor student at the University of Georgia for 2 years. I took Latin for 3 years in high school, took AP Latin: Vergil and Caesar and passed the exam, participated on the certamen team, was vice president of my Junior Classical League, and Secretary of Georgia's Senior Classical League.
