About Jana


Bio

I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a B.A. in Biochemistry, and minors in physics and violin performance. During my time at Miami, I was a tutor for all four years, assisting students with material in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and music. I've tutored both one-on-one and in bigger groups, and also worked as an undergraduate assistant in a large lecture class. While I greatly value my own success, helping a student reach his or her goals is an entirely different...

I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with a B.A. in Biochemistry, and minors in physics and violin performance. During my time at Miami, I was a tutor for all four years, assisting students with material in chemistry, physics, mathematics, and music. I've tutored both one-on-one and in bigger groups, and also worked as an undergraduate assistant in a large lecture class. While I greatly value my own success, helping a student reach his or her goals is an entirely different feeling! I enjoy encouraging others, and tutoring has given me the opportunity to positively influence another person. I use lessons as a way to aid students in setting a goal, learning the methods to reach that goal, and eventually become independent scholars. I customize sessions to a student's learning styles and needs, creating a comfortable atmosphere where questions are encouraged.

I have experience tutoring pre-calculus, algebra 1 & 2, and trigonometry. I am also able to help you out with mathematics on the ACT and the MCAT! I succeeded on both exams, earning the scores I was aiming for.

I spent four years tutoring chemistry and physics. I've learned much through my B.A. in Biochemistry, and the Physics minor I completed in college. I worked as a Physics Undergraduate Assistant for General Physics, the introductory class for majors. I learned how best to approach these subjects from my professors, and have successfully passed on those methods to other students in the past.

If you have any questions at all for me, please don't hesitate to reach out! If my hours don't work for you, we can discuss rearrangements in my schedule to accommodate yours. I like to be flexible with my students and help them in whatever way I can. I look forward to meeting you!

Last minute notification she doesn't have time

We had one tutor session with Jana, which was fine. We set up the session for the next week, but an hour before the lesson she let me know that she isn't going to be able to tutor my daughter after all. Unprofessional. Best of luck in your medical pursuits.

Knowledgable and patient

Jana taught me how to factor and showed me a method that was very easy and understandable. She was very patient and listen to all my concerns. It has boosted my confidence in Algebra.

Michael, 5 lessons with Jana

Knowledgeable and patience tutor

We started problem 4, but could not continue it due to connection issues. We worked on steady state kinetics using substitution and building rate laws. She was so patient with working through the problem. I would recommend her to other students. Thanks Jana.
