About Jane


Bio

I’m Jane, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in engineering from Cornell University. In college, the professors I liked the best were those who loved what they did, brought this passion to the classroom, and showed a genuine interest in their students. I try to bring this lesson forward in all my tutoring sessions by ensuring that students feel engaged every step of the way.

I have 10 years of experience in tutoring grade school, high school and college students for Pre-Algebra,...

I’m Jane, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in engineering from Cornell University. In college, the professors I liked the best were those who loved what they did, brought this passion to the classroom, and showed a genuine interest in their students. I try to bring this lesson forward in all my tutoring sessions by ensuring that students feel engaged every step of the way.

I have 10 years of experience in tutoring grade school, high school and college students for Pre-Algebra, Algebra 1 & 2, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and Calculus as well as SAT and ACT preparation. My tutoring experience has allowed me to work with students with abilities across the learning spectrum. This experience has helped me to understand the importance of tailoring my tutoring sessions to the individual student by asking questions to understand how each student thinks. Additionally, my experience has taught me that sometimes a student is missing one little skill that, if uncovered and worked with, can unlock that student’s ability to move forward. Where applicable for younger students, I often introduce fun math games to strengthen those students’ basic math skills. I think that one of my strengths is my patience. Another strength is that I understand that it is essential to build a student’s confidence as he or she learns.

Since parents know their children better than anyone else, I welcome any insight they can provide to help me help their children achieve the best results possible. Please feel free to reach out to me anytime to discuss your student or to schedule a tutoring session.
