About Ivana

I am a tutor with 5 years of professional and non-professional tutoring experience for students ranging from grades K-8, High School and College. My students have always done very well on their exams, and leave the session with a full knowledge of the subject that they were confused about.

I have my B.S. degree in Life Sciences with a Concentration in Pre-Medical, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the New York Institute of Technology. Throughout the years I have tutored fellow students as well as children in several subjects such as Biology, Embryology, Histology, Statistics, Organic Chemistry and Physics. I've also tutored Elementary Math and Reading, and I am skilled at helping students improve their hand writing and study skills.

My tutoring methods involve the use of colors and organized graphs, tables and charts that really help the student understand which materials are important as well as help them understand their notes. If I find that a certain method is not resonating with a student, I will switch my method on the spot in order to give the student a lesson that they will understand.

When I am not tutoring, I am either singing in a A Cappella club or acting in a play. I love reading and writing, and I understand the importance of being able to balance studying with fun, recreational activities. I am currently on the route to becoming a doctor and wish to help other students who want to achieve their dreams, but might be inhibited by a lack of understanding in a certain subject.

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.

Handwriting

I have tutored a few children in improving their handwriting. Teachers who have spoken to the child's parents about their handwriting are the students that I have had experience helping. I myself have very neat handwriting (as I was a notetaker in college for other students), and I have successfully been able to pass on my skills to my students. I have seen a drastic improvement in their handwriting; they have gone from not even writing in the lines, to neatly writing the letters in the lines in a manner that is legible. Overall, I've had great success with my students and would like to continue helping other children with their handwriting.

Study Skills

I have my B.S. degree in Life Sciences with a Concentration in Pre-Medical, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the New York Institute of Technology. One of the study skills I help children improve on is timing and practice. Many students study the night before or two nights before, without realizing that the best way to study for any exam is to pace yourself and study at least a week or two in advance, even if you are ahead of the class. I help my students create a proper study-schedule, which they follow in order to not be overwhelmed in any one subject the day before the test. I also tell my students to take advantage of the textbook before their teacher covers the topic in class, as it does help imprint the information into their memory when they learn it in class. I have had many students whose studying techniques needed improvement, and I was able to successfully help them improve their grades and study habits with my methods.
