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.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jane helped both my daughter who is in 11th grade advanced calculus and my son who is in his first year of college. She had a very clear way of explaining Calculus and both my son and daughter learned from her lesson. I highly recommend her!

Luke, 2 lessons with Jane

Excellent and patient!

Jane was an amazing tutor and we are excited to continue working with her. As a parent she sent me a detailed set of feedback about the lesson with specifics on exactly what she covered with our son which I really appreciated. So happy to have found Wyzant and our new Tutor!

Jennifer, 6 lessons with Jane

Jane gave him clarity and confidence

My son came out of his first session with Jane with confidence and excitement that the concepts they reviewed made sense. For the first time this year he felt truly prepared for his test. Looking forward to more sessions with Jane.

Danielle, 8 lessons with Jane

Helpful and patient

Jane was not deterred by my son's initial reluctance, and efforts to deter her. She was directive while being cheerful. She engaged him with various problems, and demonstrated an appreciation for my son's sense of humor.

Michelle, 1 lesson with Jane

Very knowledgeable , identifies weaknesses and works towards improvements

She made my son do visualizations and works towards solving math equations. Excellent follow ups on every single class to keep parents well informed of their kids progress.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jane is an excellent Algebra tutor ! Each time my son meets with her he always felt that he had learned and accomplished a lot with his homework and problems that he couldn’t figure it out at school We definitely will keep continuing schedule Jane to help out my son for the rest of his school year.

The Best Math Tutor Ever!

We've had a lot of tutors for our son (going into 8th grade), and hands down Jane is far and away the best. Jane is brilliant, and more importantly she's also very patient and goes out of her way to provide tailored tutoring based on the needs of our son. He's already more confident and skilled after a few lessons with Jane. She's the best.

Well worth the time and money

I struggle with math in general. Everything from the basics all the way to calculus. However, Jane is patient and understanding. Jane will go out of her way to clarify things to help build your fundamental understanding of math. I know many students, esspecally college students must consider cost. I am big believer in quality over quantity. The teaching quality provided by Jane is worth the cost in comparison to less expensive tutors. I would 100% recommend Jane for any of your math needs!
