About Janis

I teach AP Chemistry and honors chemistry as well as physical science. In the classroom, I use hands on activities to enhance the learning experience. Students are encouraged to draw their own conclusions and make connections on their own (as opposed to being told the answer). I have been quite successful. In the past 4 years, an average of 70% of my students passed the College Board AP Chemistry test. ACT science tutoring has also become an interest, as I've realized many students are not taught how to draw or read graphs and tables of scientific data. When it comes to SAT math, I've been tutoring that subject for 10 years, just because I love math. I teach AP Chemistry and honors chemistry as well as physical science. In the classroom, I use hands on activities to enhance the learning experience. Students Read more

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.

Chemistry

I have been teaching chemistry for 16 years, college prep as well as honors and advanced placement classes. All of my students in the past year have passed the NCDPI chemistry subject test. I have a variety of methods to assist any level of student for success in chemistry.

Physical Science

I have been teaching physical science for 7 years. The level of student varies and often students do not speech English well, have math problems or have learning disabilities. I have a variety of successful methods for tutoring any level of student.

SAT Math

I teach chemistry, which entails a great deal of math. The type of math matches the concepts often tested in the SAT math and the ACT science sections. I bring a more practical aspect to the test preparation, as opposed to the use of memorization.
