About Jane

I love teaching! Most of my professional life has been spent helping novelists and screenwriters make their work better through the process of breaking stories together, refining written work and copy editing. I have experience as a private Language Arts tutor, several years as a certificated substitute teacher in the Los Angeles Unified School District, and a few years as an elementary all-subjects teacher in a private girls school under my belt. I have taught children and adults to read and write and better formulate their thoughts on paper. It is a joy for me to see my students progress and embrace the amazing world of the written word.

I love language! I am also a writer and therefore understand the frustration that comes with knowing what you want to say but uncertain of the best way to get it down on paper. I have had many, many gratifying sessions with students and colleagues where I have aided them in bolstering their language, making their speech, vocabulary and writing stronger and better.

I am free Monday through Friday from 9 to 4 for tutoring or teaching. Special arrangements can be made for afternoon and evening sessions. I rarely do weekends but if it's the only time possible for us to meet due to your schedule, weekends can be arranged.
