About Iana

I love teaching because I enjoy helping my students gain confidence in the subjects they don't fully master yet. I have tutored in my free time since I was in college. The tutoring I have done has been around math and more recently in English as a Second Language.

I have an undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering and a master's degree in Petroleum Engineering, both earned at top ranked programs in the nation. This has helped me gain a strong background in mathematics. Seeing my younger students learn to love math gave me my own confidence as far as my abilities to teach; in fact, one of my former students ended up pursuing an undergraduate degree in math.

During my free time now, I have been volunteering as a teacher of ESL for a non-profit organization in Houston and I have really developed a passion for teaching. I have learned a lot about my teaching style from my students' responses and learning preferences.

I believe languages should be approached with an open mind and a sense of humor. I am currently pursuing a degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and have learned many new techniques to use in the classroom.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL for 4 years. I am pursuing a master's in Teaching ESL.

Writing

I have been teaching English for the past four years. I was in all honors and advanced placement English courses since middle school and scored perfect writing scores both on the SAT and GRE.

Nice and Patient Tutor!

Iana was preparing me to the TOEFL. I was studying with her for about 2 months. My language skills improved a lot during that time, especially speaking and writing. Thanks to this tutor I got a scored on the test much higher than I expected. Iana is very nice, patient and has a great sense of humor. I highly recommend this tutor
