Janet has a calm demeanor and uses great analogies to help you grasp difficult concepts. Our lesson was brief, but most likely will call again. I appreciated that she made herself available on such short notice - very professional!

Janet is amazing! My daughter is 7 (almost 8) and in 2nd grade. I want to make sure she stays on target and interested in math. Janet is amazing at making sure she stays on target, interested and excited about what they are learning. Janet challenges her and keeps her learning. She is always very prompt, professional, and appropriate. My daughter is always very excited about her weekly times with Janet, which I think is wonderful. Janet has years of exceptional experience and is shows. She is one of a kind!

I was pleasantly surprised that Janet kept my ADHD son engaged throughout the session. I hope this rapport will remain strong so that my son can enjoy learning. Our first lesson was definitely a success.

Janet has been a great help to my daughter in geometry, chemistry, and improving study skills. She is very good at explaining and very patient.

Janet is great with children, she knows how to talk to children, it is clear that she has years of experience. Great sense of communication, she should give more homework but she wants to be nice to children.

"Janet is Great!"

Very patient, calm and reassuring, Janet really understands why a child cannot understand and solve math problems. She has connected on a personal level with Melissa and is able to patiently guide her through complicated Algebra problems, without making it stressful. An excellant tutor!

Janet is very patient and always attempts to meet me where I am. She adjusts her approach to ensure that I learn the material by not introducing too many approaches at once. I work full-time, so we are often meeting at my office in the evening. Before meeting with Janet, I have often worked 10 hours and when I greet her I am often ramped up and exhausted at the same time. Janet's calm and nurturing approach allows me to wind down quickly and the 2 hours we spend together flies by. I am able to stay engaged the entire time. I couldn't do it all without her and truly value her support.
"Janet has saved us!!"

I just need to say that we have the best tutor!!! My husband desperately needed tutoring for his Algebra college course. Janet has come through for him (for us) with flying colors. She is flexible with her schedule, she has made my husband feel very comfortable, and best of all, she is teaching him exactly what he needs to know to pass his tests. According to my husband, Janet has the ability to take very difficult things and make them understandable. Yeah, we are very happy.
PS. And even though I'm not in the session, she must be VERY patient!!
