Janani: AP Biology, Chemistry & Social Sciences

AP Biology & Chemistry Tutor

Background
Hi! I’m Janani! I graduated from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities in May 2023 with degrees in Neuroscience and Genetics, Cell Biology, and Development from the College of Biological Sciences. I have been tutoring in a variety of ways since high school. While in high school, I primarily worked with primary and middle school students on reading comprehension, mathematics, and science. In college, I worked with undergraduate and graduate level students in coursework such as biology, chemistry, physiology, neuroscience, writing, sociology, and biochemistry.

While in college, I was also able to work as a Teaching Assistant in two different classes: Cell Biology and Leadership, which gave me the opportunity to interact with and learn about the lives of many of my students. I believe getting to know your students sets the basis for a great learning experience!

Free Time
In my free-time, I love to crochet, and I am an avid reader of fiction books (please give me book recommendations!). In the summers, I love to kayak, go on walks with my friends, and try out new restaurants in the Twin Cities area.

Goals
I hope to give my students the tools they need to succeed in any class! Learning is so much more than memorizing information. Finding personalized strategies that are conducive to a student’s learning is super important, and it is something I strive to help my students with when I work with them. I also hope to instill a feeling of appreciation for the subject matter at hand.
