Hi!

I am a Washington state certified teacher (preK-8th grade) with dual endorsements in elementary education and ESL. I have years of experience in working with children and adults who need help in reading, math, writing, and English as a second language (ESL).

I have been tutoring students/adults for about three years now, many of whom have special needs (e.g., dyslexia, ADHD, Aspergers) or a combination of needs (e.g., special needs and English language development). I am available days, evenings, and weekends and conveniently come to your home. I look forward to discussing your child's needs (or yours) and how I can help her/him to become a successful student in school.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified k-8th grade teacher with dual endorsements in elementary education and English as a Second Language. (Trained to teach!) I tutor mostly in reading, language development, and writing, but can tutor in all elementary subjects. If your student needs additional support in any of these areas, please don't hesitate to contact me. References upon request.

ESL/ESOL

I am a Washington state certified teacher with dual endorsements in elementary education and English as a Second Language (ESL). In conjunction with effective curriculum, I use a supportive approach to teaching English that includes the use of music, visuals, and gestures, which not only makes English comprehensible for beginning learners, but also creates a non-threatening environment in which to learn for children.

Grammar

I teach grammar within the content of teaching reading and writing, using a discovery method that helps students to understand and retain its meaning. I am a certified K-8 teacher with a second endorsement in English as a second language. I am trained to teach!

Phonics

As a trained and certified k-8th grade teacher, I teach a balanced approach to reading that includes phonics in conjunction with the four other essential elements to becoming an effective reader: phonemic awareness, fluency, comprehension, and practice in sight recognition of high frequency words. If your child is experiencing reading challenges, I can give him/her the boost they need to becoming a better reader.

Reading

I am a Washington State certified K-8th grade teacher with a second endorsement in English as a Second Language. I teach reading with an approach that covers the five important elements of reading: fluency, phonics/phonemic awareness, sight/high frequency word recognition, vocabulary, and comprehension. If your child is struggling with reading, my approach to teaching can help him/her succeed.

Spelling

As a trained and certified k-8th grade teacher, I teach a balanced approach to reading, spelling, and vocabulary building that includes phonics in conjunction with the four other essential elements to becoming an effective reader/speller: phonemic awareness, fluency, comprehension, and practice in sight recognition of high frequency words. If your child is experiencing reading and/or spelling challenges, I can give him/her the boost they need to becoming a better reader/speller.

Writing

I'm a certified elementary/ESL teacher with experience in literacy developmnet. For writing, I use a program that takes students through the stages of developing successful writing skills in all genres of writing (e.g., report, expository, narrative, etc).

Jana is an excellent tutor. — Jana is very responsible and structured. She helped our son tremendously. Five starts for Jana. My son needed tutoring in multiple subjects and Jana put him on a schedule that helped us catch up with homework and focus on asserting his learning in key elements that were required by the school. I'd recommend her to any kid in need to focus and structure himself/herself. ...
