Lots of data to weed through, great job getting through a lot of history. I didn't like having to write 160 characters in order to leave my review. Wyzant should fix that

Jana was very helpful in my process of preparing for the TEAS exam. She took the time to really narrow down what I needed to focus on, and was helpful in coming up with ways to remember pertinent information.

Jana has been preparing my 17 yr old high school senior for a retake of his ACT. Jana?s is patient and calm. She is very professional and organized. She completed the assessment needs for my son and immediately wrote out a plan entailing a timeline for study topics and clearly explained to my son the plan and the expectations. She is not pushy or anxious. Her calm approach and willingness to slow down is what my son appreciates the most. Even though the added study is a lot added to the rigors of high school homework, my son has kept up on his studies and he is making improved grades in his courses at school. I am 100% certain Jana was the best choice for my son as his tutor. I can?t thank her enough for making her gift and knowledge of teaching available to us.

Jana, is a wonderful organized knowledgeable tutor. She provides my daughter with homework relevant to the topics she is learning in school. She has online math games to supplement the work and she is assessible for questions before and after the session.
- Valerie C. from Minneapolis, MN
Jana discussed my son's current impressions and intensions. She then created an agreed too goal and provided resources and had him test his skills with a couple sample exam sections.
- Kevin S. from Saint Paul, MN
For the first time in my adult life, I feel comfortable about preparing for a test, and not go into full panic attack mode. This is because of the way Jana strategizes my approach, and makes me feel at ease.......like....this will be fun. Thank you Jana for being you and helping me with the preparation for the PMP exam. Looking forward to our next session!
- Gia F. from Studio City, CA
My son and Jana spend 1.5 hours together, and Jana targeted a lot areas for him to work on. We are looking forward to work with her.
- Tong M. from Minneapolis, MN
Prior to my first tutoring session, Jana had put in much time reviewing my writing samples and researching the needs of my specific standardized writing test. Our first lesson was well planned and on target for the skills I need to develop. Furthermore, it is clear that Jana enjoys her work as a tutor. I look forward to working with Jana in future sessions.
- Laura G. from Minneapolis, MN
Very tolerant of my desire to discuss SAT adjacent topics before discussing the test itself. Did not create stressful environment.
- Quinn R. from Minneapolis, MN
Jana and I have made great progress. My math and science sections have each improved by about 20 points. We are focusing on quick fixes for simple mistakes I am making moving forward. It has been worth the time and money working with Jana. She is very well prepared and extremely flexible with her meeting times and scheduling. I will recommend her to any of my friends taking the TEAS exam!
- Sidney B. from Hopkins, MN
Jana, thank you so much for your detailed description of the lessons with my daughter. It gives me a good sense of her progress by subject. Thanks!
- Maggie S. from Hopkins, MN
Yes, her hourly rate is much higher than most others on WyzAnt, but she is extremely helpful and her work is exemplary. She is well prepared for every meeting and not only did she give my daughter excellent advice about essay writing (for ACT essay and for applications), but after every lesson she wrote a thoughtful summary with advice, instructions, assignments, and more. The instruction not only helped with the college app efforts, but they improved my daughter's writing and her savvy in how to formulate essays - skills that also have helped her in her last year of HS and will carry over to her college work. My daughter was admitted to most all the schools to which she applied, including some quite prestigious schools which I thought were reaches. Whether Jana's help made the difference or not, there's no question that her efforts made my daughter a better student and a better writer.
- Marc H. from Minneapolis, MN
My son really enjoyed his tutoring time with Jana and he found her tips very helpful. I would highly recommend Jana to anyone who needs a tutor for the ACT tests.
- Deb K. from Minnetonka, MN
Jana is one of the most thoroughly organized and completely prepared 'teachers' I've ever encountered. She is so well prepared for lessons that not a single minute is wasted on "busy work". At their first meeting, Jana quickly identified what our son needed to work on to raise his score. Every assignment was geared to our student's specific needs. Homework assignments were laid out thoughtfully, with everything he needed to get on with the work. Our son had a good score to begin with, and after a few hours of Jana's time plus working on those home assignments, he bumped it up by 2 points. Jana is also very responsive to questions and very flexible with scheduling. When our younger child is ready to begin preparation, we will be asking Jana for help again.
- Lorraine M. from Minnetonka, MN
We are so happy with the sessions our daughter had with Jana. She is very organized. Each session was well planned out ahead of time and she did an excellent job of keeping our daughter on track. We were also provided with a detailed overview after each lesson of what was covered and a homework checklist for the next lesson. Jana works extremely hard in both her preparation of each lesson and in her followup of work accomplished, updated scores, etc. Our daughter had a big jump in her scores and we are extremely pleased. We would highly recommend Jana for anyone needing a boost on college entrance exams!
- Amy D. from Chanhassen, MN
Let me tell you all regarding my son and the significant progress Jana P. has helped him accomplish. Jana was able to bring clarity and understanding when he was frustrated with concepts with the ACT exam. Through the use of test-taking strategies, timed practice sets, and guided study of concepts. Jana P. created an environment of encouragement, concise learning, structure and respectfulness; in order for my son to succeed in such a short time period. Jana P. was great a communicator with us twice each week. His self confidence has reached epic proportions. I am thankful that Jana P came to our rescue and she was able to bring concise learning concepts to tutoring. We are very satisfied with Jana P. as our son's tutor. I would definitely recommend her to everyone looking for a great concise tutor.
- Linda G. from Osseo, MN
We hired Jana to tutor for the GRE. She assigned a series of skills tests before the first session to establish a baseline. Thereafter she targeted instruction on weak areas in math, verbal, and writing. She knows what she is doing. She is informed on the structure of the test and she is capable in the skills areas. Jana is thoroughly professional and a very nice person as well. My son felt good about the time he spent with her. There were no hidden charges. We were charged exactly for the time she spent with my son. I would rate her as a top tutor for this kind of exam. We are pleased.
