All of Janice’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Janice’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Ear Training

I have my Master's degree in Music and have taught Ear Training, both in a classroom setting and individually.

I have administered tests in interval recognition, chord recognition, sight singing, and rhythmic drills.

I have watched with pride as my students have improved their listening abilities in the above ear training skills.

English

I am native English speaker, who has studied grammar and vocabulary extensively. I hold a master's degree and am passionate about English literature.

ESL/ESOL

I teach ESL at Berlitz Language School in Santa Monica and am on call at the Beverly Hills Lingual Institute.

I have worked with Japanese, Korean, Indian, Dutch, Brazilian, Russian and Iranian students, either in small groups or individually.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching English and am a very patient person with excellent communication skills.

General Music

I have a Master's Degree in Music. I have taught voice (all levels, individually and in a classroom setting), music theory fundamentals, musicianship, music appreciation, sight singing and ear training, at the high school and college levels since 1998.

I feel very well qualified to teach these music subjects, having received my Masters of Music Degree with Distinction.


Music History

I have taught music appreciation at the college level since 2001. I am very knowledgeable about music history, and can easily discuss the Baroque, Classical and Romantic era styles and composers as they pertain to music history.



Sight Singing

I have my Master's degree in Music and have taught sight-singing, both in a classroom setting and individually.

I have successfully demonstrated how to identify certain patterns while sight-singing, which include interval recognition, setting a slow, steady tempo and how the individual notes can relate to certain common chord progressions.

I have had great success with my sight-singing students.

Spanish

I am bilingual (English/Spanish). I tutor beginning and intermediate students. I can explain grammar rules and conjugate verbs (regular/irregular) in all tenses, and I teach proper pronunciation.

Voice (Music)

I have taught voice privately since 1985. I have taught class voice at the college level (beginning, intermediate and advanced) since 1998.

With a Master's degree in Vocal Performance, I am well equipped with the knowledge of how to develop one's singing voice. I am a good communicator, and will address proper posture, breathing techniques, and developing a beautiful tone quality.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
