I specialize in Geometry, Algebra I and II, AP Calculus, and all levels of high school math. I have taught high school math for over ten years and have 15 years of experience as a math and science tutor.

I have taught AP Calculus AB, Trigonometry, Algebra 2, Geometry, Algebra 1, Integrated Math II, and Integrated Math I, as well as AP Computer Science Principles programming in Python. I have also tutored Pre-Calculus, Chemistry, and Physics. I have degrees in both mathematics and computer science.

I have been successful at raising students' grades in math. I'm able to explain concepts in multiple ways until students understand. It's important to me that students can do problems on their own after we've practiced some. I assign homework when appropriate and expect practice problems to be completed outside of normal schoolwork.

I have great interactions with my students and I make math interesting. I am also very comfortable with administering lessons online and use a drawing tablet as a whiteboard.

I am fully vaccinated and comfortable tutoring in person.

Please note that I require 24 hours notice for cancellations, otherwise full payment is required.

I have been teaching AP Calculus AB for 7 years and my students average scores are around 4.0 each year, well above the national average of 2.9. Calculus is my favorite subject to teach because it takes all the math learned up until now and gives it meaning.

Excellent geometry tutor

Janet tutored my 9th grader on geometry and he found her to be kind, patient, and very good at explaining difficult concepts. She designed a multi-week curriculum to help him learn concepts that were not covered last year due to changes made to the math class during the pandemic. She gave him homework for each lesson and reported on his progress after every class which was very helpful. We would definitely use her again if our son needed a little extra help during the year.

Professional and Effective Calculus Tutor

My son will be taking AP Calculus AB next school year and we have asked Janet to give him a preview of the course this summer. It's been a month and 7 lessons, and my son has made excellent progress. Janet is knowledgeable, effective and patient. Her lessons are engaging and my son feels comfortable asking Janet questions. Janet gives appropriate amount of homework, quizzes and unit tests. She is easy to work with and can make adjustments to the lessons or homework load based on feedback of the student/parents. Janet's summary after each class provides the parents an overview of what was covered in the class and addresses any areas of concern. Overall, we are very happy with Janet!

Knowledgeable, paitent and professional.

Janet was very patient and understanding. I definitely recommend her for other students. She was able to address a lot of concerns that my niece had been facing thru the entire school year and now after working with Janet we know exactly how to address these concerns when the new school year begins. Thank you so so much!

Peace of Mind

With Janet's help our daughter was able to bring the sudden drop in her algebra grade (D-) she received in her 2nd trimester report card back up to a B before the end of the school year. In a very short time period Janet was able to sleuth out holes in her math comprehension; review and provide practice problems and put her on solid ground. She's so much more confident. The long tear filled nights when parent and child are struggling, frustrated, feeling hopeless over math were alleviated. If you're reading this I'm sure you can relate. Janet's the best. Patient, humble, not intimidating and a pleasure to work with. Our daughter was instantly comfortable w/ her. Thank you Janet!

very helpful and informitive

Janet was right on time. She got right to work helping me. She listened to my questions and didn't tire. I really like her as a tutor.

John, 1 lesson with Janet

great tutor

Janet has been working with our son for three weeks now and we have already seen a difference in the way she teaches him and the way he comprehends the lessons. She has zeroed in on two of his weaknesses and is addressing them. Because of her approach, he is more attentive and putting forth more effort than he has in the past with his other tutor. We are very excited to have Janet working with our son.
