About Jayne

My freshman year at IUP I started teaching as a TA in the Chemistry labs. My goal at that time was to work in industry. I went on to work as a TA while working toward writing my thesis. I then attended Kent State University as a TA as well but was provided more freedom in the classroom. I have an extensive background in the subject through graduate school research.

People tend to think of Chemistry as so difficult. It is this thinking that defeats students. If a student can understand a concept confidence is gained. Once a student becomes confident enough they realize that the concepts of Chemistry can actually be understood. This is the approach I take when tutoring. I encourage them in making Chemistry fun and relatable to their goals in life.

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.

Algebra 1

I took Algebra1 and 2 in high school, as well as pre-calculus and calculus.

Chemistry

During my time as a graduate student, I prepared platinum anti-cancer compounds. I now teach for Westmoreland County Community College.

Organic Chemistry

I have earned an MS degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. In order for me to complete my thesis I had to get through many Chemistry classes and labs. The laboratories taught techniques necessary for that course. Organic Chemistry was the class I learned to use instrumentation. It taught me how to use NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance), IR (Infrared), and UV-Vis (Ultra-violet-visible) spectroscopies. I had taken 2 undergraduate Organic Chemistry courses as well as a graduate course.
