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’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.

fantastic session! I learned a ton

Jane was extremely knowledgeable and patient with me. She made sure to take a step back from the problem and ensure I understand the concept and reasoning behind the solution. I left the session much more confident in my algebra skills and am looking forward to another session with her

exceptional tutor!

Jane is exceptional teacher and brilliant personality! My daughter felt comfortable with her immediately after she started her class. What she did first was diagnosing her weakest areas in math and started to work with her solving different math problems. Jane loves and admires what she does and you fill it immediately you start the lesson. Her teaching style is holistic and well structured. She knows how to identify the location of the student and knows where to go and how to get there. My daughter is very shy but with Jane she opened immediately after five minutes lesson started. You feel every minute that for Jane most important fact is student success but not only money. She is exceptional and very academic and super friendly professional! THANK YOU Jane!!!

Amazing tutor!

I’m taking a College Algebra course. Jane explains things until I understand it. I picked her because she’s tutored 6 grade through college. She’s extremely knowledgeable

Diane, 3 lessons with Jane

She explained hard concepts in an easy to understand way.

Jane was very helpful and made herself available with her time. My daughter really benefited from her patient and kind demeanor. We will be thrilled to turn to Jane again for more tutoring.

Knowledgeable and great!

Jane helped my daughter with Algebra 2 Math. My daughter was taking Algebra 2 in her school year and we were looking for a good head start in order to take the pressure off during her school year. I loved the way Jane approached her teaching. Before Jane plunged into Algebra 2, she gave my daughter a diagnostic test and assessed her situation as to where she stands. This gave her a complete understanding from where the kick off should begin. Jane’s classes were very clear and easy to understand. Her teaching not only focussed on Algebra 2 skills but also gave her an understanding to the importance of the question “why” at the first place. The other great aspect is she paired her teaching with the SAT/ACT as to what may need to be focussed more. This is a very helpful teaching to master not only the subject but also gain complete confidence in it. I would highly recommend Jane as a Tutor!

Very knowledgeable, patient, and fun tutor

Jane is a more than qualified tutor. She is very good at breaking down all the details of each math problem and rooting them back to the basics. She is very patient and makes sure that at the end of the day, I understand the content regardless of how long I need to take on each problem. It is very clear that Jane is very knowledgeable in every area of math. She is very good at catering to each students learning style and at relating each subject to the student in ways that they can understand easily. Each session I have had with Jane, she has made me feel comfortable and at ease, while cracking jokes along the way. I always leave each meeting, feeling happy and way better about the subject. I highly recommend her.

1st lesson went well

My daughter said everything was explained clearly and throughly. She was able to get through today’s math homework much faster than usual.
