I asked Janet to proofread my personal statement to a graduate program. She corrected my grammatical mistakes and helped me with word choices. By the time we finished working on it, my statement was so much better and more clear! I couldn't be happier. So if you need help with your writing, she is the person to go to! Also, Janet is professional in every aspect. She wrote me back within a few hours every time I had questions. She was flexible when I asked her to change the meeting time the night before our session. She wasted no time when I met her in person to go over the statement. I'm happy I spent some time to find the "right tutor" because I'm definitely seeking her help again in the future!
I met Janet in March 2014. We have already had at least 30 sessions. She is not only intelligent and patient but she is also very flexible. I just want to say "Thank you!" to her. Hopefully, when other students are looking for some serious help on their writing they will consider Janet. My favorite English tutor!
Janet is very patient, and helped me with my doubts. She came to my place on time and began to teach me what I really needed to know. Thanks, WyzAnt, for helping me find Janet.
Janet responded to my original request for tutoring within an hour and we arranged a meeting within 2 days. She is prompt, comes prepared, and she is very patient and understanding. She explains words and concepts in accessible language and provides excellent tips on improving critical reading and writing skills. I highly recommend Janet. If only I had found her years ago!
Janet gave me some career advice (tips on job questions and answers, translation issues, etc). Very helpful once again. Thanks!
I have been working with Janet for more than
18 months, and she is extremely reliable and knowledgeable. I have always been able to reach Janet. She has worked with me as late as 1 am in the morning. What else can I say!
This review is for a graduate course in the intersection of education and law. Janet is very patient, kind, and wants you to do well. It is wonderful to find a teacher/tutor that really cares. She is wonderful to talk about content, and she knows how to explain statutes in layman terms. She deconstructs tough text and explains it in a simple way. My point is that she is the best tutor, and I would recommend her to anyone who is struggling with issues with writing or breaking down complex text. She is wonderful.
Janet is one of the better tutors that I've had in the last few years. Janet was patient when I did not understand a concept that pertained to LSAT. I highly recommend her to anyone who is having difficulty with this test.
Janet is an incredible tutor. She adjusts her instruction to my specific needs and always comes with new ideas and worksheets to address those needs.
Janet is a great person to work with; she helped me with MCAT Verbal section and was very helpful. She gave me shortcuts to analyze passage and author's main idea. I would recommend her for composition analysis & comprehension. Excellent tutor.
Janet is an awesome tutor and a great person to work with. She has exceptional writing skills and knowledge of law. She is patient and kind and easy to work with. I am so glad that I found her here on WyzAnt. Thank you, Janet.
Janet is the most responsible, patient tutor for my daughter! She is excellent in tutoring my daughter in writing. My daughter has learned a lot from her!
Janet B. is one of the best and most dedicated tutor we have ever worked with. We are so thankful for her.
I had a great experience with Janet. She was always very responsive via both email and during our sessions. I really appreciated her clear explanations and her encouragement of sharing my own thoughts on the material. I would definitely request support from her again!
Janet does a fantastic job of making the material easy to understand. She has been an extraordinary tutor for my professional writing course. I highly recommend Janet.
Given the time and restriction, you still proofread in a timely and meticulous manner, and return my emails in a quick fashion. Your professionalism exceed my expectation. I appreciate that you're still patient when I repetitively show frustration and difficulty in grasping meanings on articles and tenses. Thank you for dedicating your time to help me.
Janet is a great tutor. She is professional, patient, non-judgmental, and she possesses a great sense of humor. She takes the time to explain the topics to you, answers all of your questions, and makes sure you understand before going on to the next topic.
If you need to work on improving your grammar, English for business or content development, she is the one. She will look for all possible resources and tailor the class to your needs.
I have been taking classes with Janet for over two months and I am so pleased with her teaching methodology. She is a professional in all senses!
Janet is both a good lawyer and a good teacher. She understands the law and is able to distill critcal elements into an outline.
She is affable, patient and knowledgeable. I will seek her advice whenever I need help.
Janet responses to my email every fast. She did a very good job in helping me proofread my papers.
I appreciate your help. If it were not for your help, I could not manage my life here. Thanks again! If you happen to come to my country, feel free to contact me. I'll treat you 'traditional food'.
Janet helped me a lot when I was preparing for law school finals. She makes the subjects easy to understand and helped me greatly with the analysis of my writing.
Janet seems to be more than a tutor. She mentors both of my daughter's who are in the 7th and 8th grade. She understood from almost the very first time, what they needed to work on and created a program that focused on those needs. She makes it entertaining, topical and most of all keeps the girls interested in writing. Could not give a higher recommendation than Janet!
Janet is very helpful with my paralegal studies especially on reviewing my homework, etc. Her work is very thorough and to the point. Thanks so much, Janet!
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.
