Mathematics can be intimidating to many people. I would like to put you, the student, at ease when teaching, so that you can more easily understand the subject without added stress. I have a special technique that I stumbled upon for learning abstract mathematical concepts. All difficulties in mathematics can be broken down into very simple pieces and our minds seem to do this with natural ease when we allow it to happen. Trust me, nothing is too difficult to conquer. Our conscious minds can get in the way of learning and yet our subconscious minds can more easily maneuver new ideas into simple solutions. So, relax, stay alert, and absorb what is written and said during a session. After a session, again, relax, and review all that was said and done - go into a meditative state, or even fall asleep if necessary when a new concept is not yet clear. All of my students are welcome to text me any time about related questions that are still not clear.
I look forward to helping you soon! - Janet Mathematics can be intimidating to many people.

Janet was extremely patient and thorough during our session. She patiently and methodically worked out each math problem, writing down every step, so that I could go back on my own and do the problems myself. I was nervous and tend to shut down when I don't understand something, but experienced none of those fears with Janet. She gave me the assistance I needed to prepare for a test I have coming up. Thanks, Janet!
Janet works diligently to listen to the students needs and stretch with the student. I am a grad student in higher order thinking courses and Janet has supported me all the way through four stats courses and now dissertation. So excited to work with her.
Janet B. is an awesome tutor. Not only is she very knowledgeable of the content, she is also very patient while clarifying any misunderstandings that you may have. I recommend Janet B. 100%. You will not be disappointed!
Janet probably has an IQ of around 200, but she never talks down to you. She's easy to understand and explains concepts well. She has been a great help to me in my doctorate program.
Janet has done an outstanding job with my 8th grade son. In just 7 sessions over the last three weeks she helped him get caught up on all of his late assignments and he brought his grade up to a 76. She has helped him gain a good understanding of Pre Algebra, something I was unable to do myself & something his teacher was obviously unable to do also.
My son has a new level of confidence that I have never seen in him pertaining to school. Janet not only helped him with math but her influence has seemed to have helped him in all of his classes. He had his best report card of the year for this six week period.
Janet has shown a sincere interest in helping him and I will definitely recommend her services to anyone in need. We plan on keeping her around for a while to help him stay on top. I am confident that the next report card will be even better. I believe that she would have helped him make an A for the six weeks if she had more time to work with him and if he wasn't so far behind when she started.
Thanks a million Janet! I am a proud parent!
Janet tutored my son before his 5th grade year in the summer, to catch him up. He had not passed the TAKS 4th grade Math and then by 5th grade, he had no problems and was commended for 5th grade TAKS math. I would recommend her!!
Janet is a great tutor and very patient! My daughter is doing great in Pre-Cal and is no longer failing her class. My daughter adores Mrs. Janet and is learning a lot. Thank you Janet!!!
Janet came in and got right to work with my son, who has been struggling with Algebra I. I was able to directly observe the tutoring session and was pleased that she didn't do the work for him, but expected him to do the work and explain it to her so she could make sure he understood each step of the process. She is very confident of her skill set and is very flexible regarding dates/times that she is available. I thought she was positively wonderful and was disappointed that my son's feedback... she was "OK". He stated that he did understand her and she explained things very well, but he did not feel a connection to her personally and prefers to keep looking for a tutor that is a better fit for him.
In spite of this, I would highly recommend Janet to anyone struggling with Algebra. I was pleased with her and think she is an excellent, patient tutor with a commendable skill set.
I have not taken math since my physics course for my undergrad. I do not like numbers or math. Janet is patient and understanding. She really helps me at my pace (slow) to learn step by step how to once again do algebra. I am 55 and math is a challenge but I need to get this right for my current PhD program requirements.
No matter what Janet will find her way around to make your tutoring experience awesome. You will certainly love it. She helped me understand a couple of exercises I could not understand that well. I will recommended to anyone in need of a great tutor for College Algebra.
Thank you Janet for helping me out this afternoon.
Janet has tutored my grandson (high school) and my granddaughter (college). She is very knowledgeable in helping them with algebra, geometry, and statistics. She is detailed in helping them understand each step in order to logically solve a problem. She is very pleasant and timely responds to emails. She definitely warrants an Excellent score in knowledge and availability.
My 15 year was really amazed at how 'easy" Janet made math seem! We have worked with Janet before with our older daughter and sought her out for the younger one, as we knew she is the VERY BEST.
She is patient and sweet with the students. She is the only Math Tutor for us.
Janet is an EXCELLENT tutor. I cannot express my sincere "THANK YOU" enough. My daughter loves her sessions with Janet. She actually understands her work now and I can tell that her fear of pre-cal is fading. She has confidence in herself and her ability since working with Janet. She has expressed to me how thankful she is for Janet. Thank you Janet for your patience and exemplary dedication with my daughter!!!
I want to thank Janet for everything she has done for me. She is very patient and will make sure you know what your doing before going to the next level. I would highly recommend Janet. I don't know where I would be right now without her help. Believe me I needed alot of help! I feel good about myself and I feel smarter!! Thank you so much!
The day before our first tutoring session with Janet, I sent her the problems my nephew was having trouble with. Janet not only worked out each problem, she made a copy for him to take home as a review. I am very impressed with what she did with my nephew in just one hour. Janet will be the first tutor (and the last tutor) that we call on when we need more help. Thanks, Janet!!!
Is very patient with me and makes me feel at ease to calm down and focus on learning. I appreicate her helping me to get a better understand of my math needs.
My son had his first session with Ms. Janet B. yesterday evening, and from what he's told me, it went great! We're looking forward to his next session.
Janet is very knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. She has great patience with me and is a pleasure to work with each week. She is the only reason that I am going to be passing my statistics course instead of failing badly.
Janet is very kind and extremely patient with JD. My child was afraid of math and didn't even want to try. The teachers wouldn't give her individual time and attention which made her feel left behind. Thanks to Janet my daughter is a stronger student. JD has confidence in Algebra and it shows in her grades. She was an "F" student and now I'm proud to say she has an "A" average in math. Thank you, Janet, for showing JD that there are other ways to conquer math!
Janet had a way of breaking down the information in a way that I could understand. She is perceptive in that she knows when to back up and explain again when I get lost. We work very well together. I particularly appreciative of her love of math which keeps the lesson interesting, not dry and boring.
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.
I have helped many students prepare for taking the mathematics portion of the ACT and SAT. First, I mix sessions, so the student doesn't get bored or lose focus. There are key topics that are reviewed, mini-quizzes and tests given to find areas of improvement and also to emphasize the students' strengths with particular problems.
I have prepared many students for the quantitative sections of other tests, including SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, and ASVAB. My educational background is in mathematics as is my entire professional career - including scientific programmer/analyst (worked in the aerospace industry supporting the US Airforce on secret research and development of new fighter aircraft - including the best of the F15 and F18 with additional features). Of course teaching and tutoring pure mathematics is also part of my professional repertoire. Additionally, I worked with and created functionality using numerical methods. I believe I am highly qualified to tutor/teach students in preparation for the AFOQT quantitative exam.
I have tutored several students in biostatistics. The applications of statistics in the biological sciences parallel the mathematics used for the statistics in psychology and business. The use of formulas is not standardized throughout all texts - so, I normally will request a student to send problems prior to our sessions so that I can prepare. I never request extra money for my preparation time. So, it is always to the students' advantage to send ahead of time prior to our scheduled lesson.
I have helped many students with their calculus problems. They have thanked me much, and some had already gone through several tutors before settling in with sessions with me. Nothing is too difficult to tackle. Also, sometimes our subconscious minds can help in solving problems (I learned this when first learning theoretical calculus). It was amazing. Sometimes we work way too hard consciously, when our minds can do some churning in the background. Receiving much needed help in a more relaxed manner, our conscious minds are made aware of possible solutions!
I have taught 6th grade math through 12th grade advanced math, and have tutored many students in 5th and 6th grade (through college and graduate school). It's so important for students to have a solid foundation in math, and these are the grades that are key.
In the past, I was a mathematics editor for GRE math preparatory materials. Also, I have tutored students in preparation for it. All problems can be broken down into understandable queries and then answered. Also, there are strategies for test taking that help when the problem indeed appears too complicated.
Praxis is a teacher's qualification test for various subjects - similar to the Texas TExES 135 Math exam - which must be passed for math teachers to teach mathematics in public high schools in Texas. I passed this 5 hour exam the first time taking it. I was told many people had not passed it even after taking it multiple times. So, preparation is key to ensuring competency for this important exam.
I have taught pre-algebra in High School and tutored many students as well. All concepts can be broken down into very simple facts, and then built into mathematical solutions.
I have taught and tutored precalculus for years - along with so much other math. I love precalculus in that it covers trigonometry in detail, advances algebra to new heights, and covers new ways of thinking about arrangements of numbers using polar coordinates. A great foundation in precalculus allows students to confidently continue their studies into calculus in the future.
I have tutored many students in statistics - from beginners to people requiring bio-stats, criminal justice and psychological testing for PhDs and students receiving masters degrees in business, science and medical fields. For each application, there are special needs and constraints to consider. I am excited to help all students with their concerns in statistics.
I have tutored in pre-calculus and calculus - both include the knowledge of trigonometry and advanced algebra as foundational support. All can be broken down into simple steps for solving - and there are multiple ways to solve, so choosing the one best for you is important for saving time and eliminating stress.
