Hello and thank you for taking the time to view my profile!

My name is Janet, and I am a highly qualified teacher with over a decade of teaching experience teaching multiple subjects. I've taught regular classes and worked with small groups of special needs students, the gifted, and EL students. I have also been working with students who are too ill to temporarily attend their neighborhood schools since 2008 through the Home & Hospital Program at Irvine Unified School District. In addition, I provide quality in-home tutoring services to students in Orange County.

I am a graduate of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, CA (Cal Poly Pomona) with a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies. I've earned two teaching credentials: a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, K-12 and a Single Subject Teaching Credential in Biology. I do speak and understand some Korean. I am highly organized, energetic, and ready to help your student succeed!

I teach all elementary school subjects and all middle school subjects. At the high school level, I can teach English, Pre-Algebra, Transitional Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, History, American Government, Biology, General Science and Life Science. Contact me about your student’s particular needs!

I can meet you at your home and we can discuss and pin-point the academic areas your student needs the most help. By taking a look at your student's information via the school's website or by previous report cards/ progress reports and old tests/assignments, I can better determine how to best support your student. After we set a schedule, we will then use their homework and textbooks as a guide to increase your student's understanding and retention in their academic subjects. Your student will learn how to set goals and reach them, how to study effectively, how to achieve and maintain organization, and how to manage their time to reduce stress and "cramming," so that your student will become a more independent, responsible, and confident student.

I recommend at least a minim

Wonderful, knowledgeable teacher

Ms. Janet is an excellent Biology tutor. She is so Knowledgeable, patient and understanding. She helped my daughter a lot to study the genetics chapter in middle school and pass the tests. She was flexible with us and accommodated our schedule. Definitely a great teacher who we will continue with in high school. I highly recommend her.

English class

Recently, we have Janet to help our kid with her online English classes. Janet is a firm, knowledgeable and passionate teacher. In the first class, she was able to connect and build trust with our child. We recommend her to any high school student who is serious about his/her studies

Outstanding tutor that exceeds expectations!

Janet has worked with my 12 year old daughter since 3rd grade and has had several sessions with my son over the years, who is now a freshman in high school. Initially, Janet worked with my daughter on reading comprehension. At the time, she was below grade level in reading. It was within several weeks where we saw strong improvement. Janet was very effective at helping my daughter raise her reading level by teaching her to not just read to read but to read to understand,infer where appropriate, and help the student to open up their mind to see what is really involved with the whole story or content, even non fiction. This comes easily to some students but when a child struggles with this Janet does an excellent job of connecting with them and also holds them accountable for doing their best. We also had Janet work on grammar and writing. She is an exceptional tutor in this area as well. About half way through 6th grade my daughter tested at an 8th grade reading level. My son worked with Janet a number of times from about 7th-current 9th (honors level). Specifically, it was on writing and some grammar. Janet was an extremely valuable resource in this area for my son. She guided him on some assignments by not fixing his work but talking through how and why you should approach a writing assignment a certain way. She was able to help him see more clearly what the teacher was looking for. Janet always took the time to really review the rubric for the assignment to ensure her student was on the right track to complete the assignment to their highest potential. This is so critical so they can use the same thought process on future assignments. Janet is an outstanding tutor that will exceed your expectations!

Extremely disappointed

Janet has tutored my daughter for weeks, until she suddenly dropped her. It came as a shock to us! On the night before my daughter's next tutoring session, Janet abruptly changed the tutoring time starting the following day. Apparently, she took on another student. We were stunned since Janet did not ask us to switch the time, instead she made a declarative statement. When we mentioned that the new time would conflict with my daughter's bedtime, Janet said that she will no longer tutor her anymore. Another odd incident is when Janet never showed up to tutor. Later that evening, I received a text from Janet...she was busy tutoring another student and forgot about my daughter's session. Be forewarned...Janet may suddenly give you a new schedule, and tutoring services will be terminated if it conflicts with your schedule. Also, she may never show up because she forgot about you! :(

Tutor responded:

I'm sorry to have disappointed you but you've canceled over 50% of the tutoring sessions scheduled and I never knew if I was working with your daughter until a couple of hours before our scheduled session. It makes it very difficult to schedule any other sessions because of this. I would have been happy to keep her on for a session later in the day so I could accommodate one of my former students who asked me to come back to tutor four times a week but it did not work with your schedules. I'm sorry to have disappointed you but I hope you are able to find a tutor on WyzAnt with a more flexible schedule.
