Hello! Thanks for stopping by my profile!

Want to communicate better in English? You've come to the right place! My name is Janelle, and I have been teaching students of all ages for more than 15 years. I can help you with English slang, conversation, grammar, or TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN, SAT, and other proficiency tests. Over the years, most of my students have been Japanese, Korean, and Chinese families, but I have also taught students from Mexico, Peru, Saudi Arabia, India, Libya, and several other places! I believe that each person can teach others, so I enjoy learning from my students as well.

I have also taught group SAT classes at Ohio Contemporary Chinese School for the past 5 years, and I am constantly staying up-to-date with ongoing trends in the field of education. I have worked at OSU in higher education for more than 10 years (Go Buckeyes!), so I can also help students with preparing for college applications.

I have also tutored and taught Japanese. I have enjoyed helping students prepare to visit or relocate to Japan and watched them grow with the language.

My goal is to help you meet yours! I am very flexible to help you study what you would like to study. All ages and abilities welcome; no matter what your goal, we will work towards it together!

I offer private individual or group lessons on the OSU campus, in your home, or in my home. I look forward to meeting you!

Due to the busy testing season, please note my cancellation policy: I require 8-hours notice to change or cancel lessons that take place on Monday-Friday. For weekend lessons, I require notice by Thursday at 9pm for lessons that occur on Saturday or Sunday. Any cancellation or no-shows that occur within these times will be assessed a flat $20 fee. The fee is not charged during cancellations due to weather, true emergency or illness. Thank you in advance!

My schedule for fall, 2014, is currently full; however, I am able to accommodate short-term requests for assistance. Thank you and best of luck!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

College Counseling

I worked as an academic advisor in a graduate program for Ohio State University for over 8 years. During this time, I helped students with many areas, ranging from the application process, to career counseling, to financial aid and HR benefits, to navigating the university system. I sat on committees so I am familiar with how the admissions process works, and I can guide students in preparing for tests as well as writing reference letters and personal statements.

English

I have tutored students of all ages in ESL and English for the past 15 years. I have also taught an essay writing and grammar class on weekends at a local school. I have helped students with middle school and high school English classes, helping them improve their grades, and I have also helped ESL students become more comfortable in English in order to pass tests and succeed in interviews. I am able to help students who are strong in English and need to improve to the highest level, as well as those who struggle with the subject. My most recent student improved his ACT English score by 6 points with just 2 lessons!

ESL/ESOL

Hello! I've been teaching and tutoring students in ESOL for the past 10 years. I believe that English is not only memorizing grammar, I want to help you to gain confidence in the language and communicate effectively. However, if you are interested in preparation for English tests (TOEFL, IELTS, EIKEN, etc.), I can also help you with that.

My goal is to help you reach your goals! I hope to meet you soon :)

IELTS

I have been tutoring students in ESL for the past 15 years, and have helped several students prepare for the IELTS test. I am familiar with the bands and scoring of the test. Most of my experience with IELTS has been with helping students with the speaking and writing portions of the test; last year, I helped two students improve their scores over 2 months from a 4.5 to a 6.0 and 6.5, which was enough to get them into two graduate programs in the United States.

Japanese

Hajimemashite! I have been tutoring students in Japanese language for the past 10 years and have also taught adult classes at 2 local community centers. I specialize in helping adults learn tricky grammar & cultural points, as well as preparing for moving to or visiting Japan. Each lesson will be tailored to your goals and level & we will have fun learning together. Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

SAT Writing

I have been teaching classes in SAT writing for over 4 years. I can help students prepare for both the essay and multiple choice sections of the test. I enjoy helping students learn and improve their writing skills!

Spanish

Hola! Como estas? I have studied Spanish for several years at The Ohio State University and am currently working there part-time at the Center for Latin American Studies. I've also traveled to Spain and 7 countries in Latin America, so I would love to talk with you about travels to the Spanish-speaking world!

TOEFL

I have 10 years experience helping students study for all sections of the TOEFL test. It is important not only to understand the format and how the test works, but also to be comfortable communicating in English. My goal in teaching for the TOEFL is help you not only to get a good score, but also to help you become better at communicating in English. Thank you for stopping by my profile, and good luck!

Writing

I have been teaching classes in writing for over 4 years at a local non-profit organization. In college, I received a writing award for my senior thesis. Through private tutoring over the past 12 years, I have become skilled at helping students prepare for proficiency test essays, correct grammar and diction mistakes, and overcome fears of brainstorming. I enjoy helping students learn and improve their writing skills!

Excellent tutor with strategies — My son is going to be a 7th grader in the coming fall. He loves reading, but not writing. That is why we have Janelle as his tutor during the summer. Janelle is a very structured and energetic young lady with many teaching strategies. She is very familiar with the middle school curriculum. After one lesson, my son told me he likes her, since she made writing fun. After seven lessons, he has even s ...
