About Jane

I am a Georgia Tech Engineer with a Master's degree in Math Instruction from Ole Miss for grades 7-12. I have been a math tutor for 19 years. I am new to the area and currently accepting new clients for students who need assistance with any math class 7th grade though (and including) Pre-Calculus. I can help with homework, studying for quizzes and tests, or prep for ACT/SAT. Flexible meeting times and locations.

My most recent experience was working in a Montessori Middle School and helping students learn math through the use of hands-on exercises, manipulatives, and self-paced learning. I loved unlocking the mysteries of Algebra with students who have all types of learning styles (visual, auditory, and combination).

I have had 19 years experience as a math tutor. I have seen every lesson and every trend and have studied the common core curriculum extensively. I know how to teach every concept multiple ways, but have found that with struggling students it is best not to deviate too far from the way they are learning in the classroom. I strive to complement the lessons they are receiving from their teacher and clarify.

If you live or want to meet in the Farragut ,Cedar Bluff or Hardin Valley Area please contact me to get started!

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

For the last two years I have taught Accelerated Algebra 1 at a private school outside. I am intimately involved in this course because I designed the curriculum plan and teaching strategies based on the Common Core Curriculum. Within the last 12 months I attended a training seminar sponsored by NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) and took several lessons on how to improve my teaching of this subject. I tutored one student this past year and helped him raise his grade from an F to a B but more importantly helped him regain his confidence and self-esteem - he thought he was "terrible" at math and would "never" understand it...he finished the year as a confident math student.

Algebra 2

I have an engineering degree from Georgia Tech and a masters of curriculum and instruction from Ole Miss. I have been tutoring Algebra 2 for 19 years.

Geometry

I have an engineering degree from Georgia Tech, a Master's in Curriculum and Instruction from Ole Miss, and 20 years experience as a math tutor, including Geometry.

Very happy we found Jane!

My son is a high school junior and was struggling with Algebra 2. He had gotten behind due to illness and absence from school. After working with Jane for a few weeks, he is caught up on all of his missed work. His grade has improved and he has a much better understanding of the materials. Jane was able to quickly determine where to focus and presented the lessons in a way my son could relate to.
