I'm an experienced tutor and coach in English (reading, writing, grammar, composition), government, political science, law and LSAT prep.

I can help you improve your grades or advance your career. I have a great deal of experience working with ESL learners, including speakers of Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Arabic, and other languages. For the time being, I work exclusively online but will also consider in-person meetings in the Berkeley/Oakland area once the public health environment has improved.

I can teach you how to write effective essays, academic papers, business presentations, website copy, marketing material, correspondence, emails, business plans, executive summaries, resumes, and many other types of writing. I have helped my students prepare successfully for the TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, the verbal portions of the GMAT and MCAT, and a number of other exams. I'm also available for quick editing and proofreading assignments.

If you're a law or paralegal student, I can teach substantive legal topics, legal writing and research skills, and exam prep.

Contact me, and I'll design a tutoring plan that best suits your needs!

Proofreading

Proofreading

Do you need someone to help you with your homework, essay, resume, article, or other document? I can help! I proofread and edit a wide range of documents, including essays, academic papers, business documents (business plans, website copy, white papers, marketing material, etc.), letters, legal documents, books, articles, and much more! I work quickly and accurately, and I can show you what I corrected so that you can improve your own writing. I can also help you during the research and writing process, if necessary. I am familiar with typical stylistic and citation formats, such as MLA, APA, Bluebook, CMS (Chicago) and AP. I’m happy to work with short deadlines!

I have a J.D. in Law from UC Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall). I have worked to help students improve on each section of the LSAT (reading comprehension, logical reasoning, and logic games).

Law

She is the ideal tutor. Gently and patiently tutoring. She acquires significant experience and a broad perspective on law, particularly on litigation and the United States legal system. I strongly recommend her to anyone who wishes to quickly become familiar with the US legal system.

Murat, 6 lessons with Janet

LSAT Tutor

It's always pleasant to join a tutoring session with Janet. She is very helpful and patient with my understanding which I appreciate. I always leave my session feeling more confident and have learned alot in a short span of time.

Victoria, 2 lessons with Janet

Excellent explanations, patient and very helpful.

I have had 3 total sessions with Ms. Janet. In all the sessions she has helped me learn things I did not know about the type of questions we were solving. I have picked up some good habits from her about how to attack specific questions. She is very patient and allows me to get my thoughts out before helping me get to where I need to be. I 10/10 recommend her. Her schedule is quite flexible from what I can tell and she is also quite accommodating on meeting times.

Kevin, 2 lessons with Janet

LSAT Tutor

Janet is a great Tutor who helped me understand the process of two different logic games. She's patient, attentive, and makes it easy to understand. I'm really looking forward to my next tutoring session with her.

Victoria, 2 lessons with Janet

Qualitative LSAT prep

Janet is a very knowledgeable person who knows how to explain things simply and clearly. I like our lessons because my results are improving and also Janet creates a cozy atmosphere. It’s a nice person to talk with and to ask the questions regarding LSAT prep, as I did

Veronika, 7 lessons with Janet

Knowledgeable, encouraging and patient

Janet is an exceptional teacher. She has the ability to help me understand the complexities of the LSAT which has been a real challenge for me. I’ve only had a few sessions with her and already have a much better grip on questions I found extremely difficult to solve. She’s one of a kind!

LaToya, 12 lessons with Janet

Amazing first session

I gained a more clearer way to attack sufficient and necessary assumptions in the LSAT. She was very patient and really sought to understand how I was going about the strategy to solve them

Anthony, 9 lessons with Janet

Patient and well informed tutor

We went over logical reasoning practice questions in our lesson. Janet explained each problem well and had useful advice for test-taking. She was clear in her explanations and ensured I understood before moving on.

Samaha, 1 lesson with Janet

proof reading documents

She did an excellent job! She was prompt in responding to my email request for proof reading. She completed the task ahead of schedule. In the past, when I request a quick turn around for proof reading, she never failed me.

Jennifer, 33 lessons with Janet

Extremely knowledgeable and patient

This was my first lesson and it was amazing. She was very patient and helped find what weaknesses you have in order to succeed. She helps you be more confident and carefully analyze every option!
