About Jane

I enjoy working with adult students. We, as adults, have an end-goal in mind: getting a degree, getting a job, or getting a promotion. It is that focus and drive that enables us to identify where and how we need help.

I also enjoy working with young people who posses the ownership of their learning path. My most successful young learners accepted help and encouragement, while using the skills discussed in a lesson for their own empowerment in school.

I focus on the skill at hand, the tools for understanding, and the long-reaching future application and then implications the skill will have.

I look forward to meeting you soon to help you reach your goals.

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

Algebra is a course in which basic algebraic concepts are introduced and mastered. Algebra 1 is taught at the high school level and occasionally at the middle school level to 8th grade students. Students learn how to solve for variables, how to manipulate integers, and how to graph and find equations for lines, bisectors, midpoints, and so on.

College level algebra is another level of algebra. It tends to go more in depth and require a deeper understanding of theorems and applications.

I am very comfortable assisting students with either level of algebra.

I use the book Algebra and Trigonometry with Analytic Geometry, by Swokowski and Cole, 10th edition. This is a college level book and I am confident it will help with learning the concepts of the course.

Algebra 2

High school algebra 2 requires students to dig deeper than the basic principles introduced in elementary algebra (algebra 1.) Algebra 2 introduces functions, f(x), quadratic equations and applications, parabolas, and trigonometric functions.

Students who lack a strong foundation in Algebra 1 tend to face challenges in Algebra 2. I can help with this, as I have several strategies and a very diverse background with both the educational and technical application of these skills.

I use the book Algebra and Trigonometry with Analytic Geometry, by Swokowski and Cole, 10th edition. This is a college level book and I am confident it will help with learning the concepts of the course.

ASVAB

The ASVAB is a battery of skills test designed to identify approprate placement into a military job, or "rate." Higher scores enable prospective military personnel to select from a wider variety of rates. Lower scores limit the rate options. Scores which are not passing may prevent a person from joining the Armed Forces.

I was enlisted in the NAVY and last took the ASVAB in 2001 with a score of 97. If you are interested in receiving help with the ASVAB, please let me know. I want you to be as successful as possible, and to open up as many rate options as you can.

Elementary Math

Elementary Math is an essential foundation and building block for students' success in later years of schooling. Students learn about fractions, lowest common denominator, greatest common multiple, area, perimeter, and many more concepts in the early years. These concepts provide a foundation upon which they will build algebraic and geometric concepts, and construct other abstract mathematics ideas.

Student success in early math is essential to ensure self-confidence, achievement, and growth potential throughout the rest of their schooling career.

ESL/ESOL

Learning English is a very complex process. It takes time, dedication, study, and lots of practice. Each ESL student is unique, with varying levels of skills and abilities.

I am not bilingual, but I am confident in my ability to communicate across the language divide and help students reach their goals with English. I have the most experience with lower and intermediate level English Speakers.

Proofreading

I am a University of Phoenix Alum, and have access to writing and proofreading tools through the University that aren't readily available to the public.

In addition, I wrote 2 papers per week for the duration of my Bachelor and Master's programs. (That totals many, many papers!) I was given very helpful feedback from my professors, and am eager to share their knowledge and insights with the next generation of students.

Finally, I have learned some tricks of the trade myself, regarding how to streamline the paper, organize the thought process, and develop the thesis.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to many different levels, ages, and types of students for several years. The key to study skill success is to identify the learner's strategies, strengths, needs, and goals.

Some strategies that make study skills a success include creating an accommodating study area, tracking assignments, increasing focus, and abiding by a consistent schedule.

Study skills may include learning how to scan for main ideas, building vocabulary, learning research methods, improved mathematics concepts, building a base for scientific method and inquiry, writing with a "voice," test-taking strategies, and test anxiety strategies.

I can help home-schooled students as well as students enrolled in public, private, or online schools.
