About Jane

My experience in tutoring (both paid and unpaid) ranges from ages 6-16, from the SAT Writing/Reading/Vocabulary sections to keeping your child's school assignments organized. I have experience with students with ADHD but no serious special-needs teaching training.
My strengths lie in analyzing a teacher's prompt, helping students get their essay started, editing for grammar errors, and teaching how to read analytically. I've worked in a vast age range, so I have experience assisting with homework from elementary up to high school levels. Also, I've had experience helping students study for large exams (APs, midterms for high school, etc.) and am well armed with study tools and techniques. I worked as a Writing Tutor for my school's Peer Writing Center in high school. My current plan of study includes a great deal of writing exercises and courses at NYU.
I previously worked as a tutor/nanny for an 11-year-old, helping check her homework in all subjects and keeping her schoolwork organized. I was paid to teach SAT tutoring courses in Reading, Vocabulary, and Writing over the summer.
I speak Mandarin as well! However, I don't consider myself fluent enough to teach Mandarin, but I have a great deal of experience in assisting Mandarin-ESL students with writing assignments.

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.

Writing

I have been a peer Writing Tutor for 2 years with the San Mateo High School Writing Center. I also gained experience working with ESL students.
