About Ivana

I am a highly motivated tutor with a strong educational background in science. I have experience tutoring high school and college algebra, pre-calculus, calculus, general chemistry 1 and 2, and biology.

I graduated with distinction from the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology department at University of Colorado. I worked as a genetics teaching assistant at University of Colorado for two years. I taught laboratory portion of the class and was involved in writing exams, quizzes, and problem set questions. I have experience evaluating and grading students.

I currently work in research, but I miss teaching tremendously. Tutoring is not like any other job. A tutor grows through the growth of their clients. We expand our knowledge by helping students expand theirs. We learn by teaching and teach by learning! My biggest motivation is the ultimate success of my clients, and I make sure that our goals are met.

I make math fun! I give real life examples to help students understand the importance of seemingly tedious topics. I am very patient and dedicated to students' success.

We will work together to help you master a difficult subject, but most importantly, I will give you tools that will help you in all future educational endeavors.
