About Lana

I am a certified professional tutor at Middle Georgia State University. I have over six years’ experience tutoring and about 2,000 logged tutoring sessions! I have become very familiar with all types of learning styles and how to help students overcome struggles with school. I try to gear each session to the individual learning style of the student because everyone learns differently! I also go over skills of how to become a good test taker no matter the subject, because as much as we hate it this is key in your success as a student.

I am a CRLA, college reading and learning association certified level three master tutor and a member of the Georgia Tutoring Association. I have experience tutoring all ages in a very wide variety of subjects. In the many years I have been tutoring, I have assisted in home-schooling, volunteered in schools for test preparation, worked at Kumon math and reading center, have tutored at Middle Georgia State College for the past five years and am a Student Success Specialist there. I received my bachelor's degree in Biology from Middle Georgia State College in 2013, and was awarded my associate's degree in Chemistry in 2011.

I specialize in tutoring science courses such as Chemistry, Math, and Biology, but I also have a great deal of experience in English, Physics, Spanish, and Test Preparation. I have had great success in tutoring for tests such as the SAT and am proud to say I have former students that now attend Ivy League Schools.
My favorite part about tutoring is helping a student gain clarity of a subject and finally reach that "Aha moment!" when they understand it on their own. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach that moment!

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.

Biology

I am earning my bachelor's degree in biology in December 2013. I have been tutoring many different aspects of biology for 3 years at my college.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience working with students in this age group through volunteering at elementary schools to prepare students for the CRCT and from working at Kumon math and reading center. At Kumon I was trained to work with children as young as 2 years old and as old as 18. I have also had the opportunity to tutor numerous high school students in the past two years and have successfully assisted with all of their subjects.

Organic Chemistry

My minor was in Chemistry. I have been tutoring Organic Chemistry at Middle Georgia State College for over 3 years. I like to use models in my tutoring sessions.

Awesome Tutor! — I am extremely pleased with the tutoring services that Lana has provided for my son. She is very patient, professional, and she explains the subject very thoroughly. My son was struggling with Pre-calculus; he actually failed the last test before his first lesson with Lana. After his first session with her, he made a high B on the subsequent test, and he just keeps getting better in Pre-calculus. ...
