Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ADHD

Because I have owned and operated college preparatory schools for several years, I have been able to accept and help students with ADD and ADHD. I have found that, with one-on-one instruction and clear explanations, students with ADD and ADHD are able to achieve in line with their innate intelligent and talents. The extra attention assures that these students are able to remain in the main stream, rather than be shunted off to special classes.

CBEST

I am a credentialed teacher and, therefore, have qualified to pass the CBEST. My credential is in mathematics, science and English, so I have a broad base of knowledge in most academic subjects. I have been tutoring students to prepare to take other tests, such as the SATs, the GRE and the GMAT.

Chemistry

I have a teaching credential in science and have been teaching and tutoring for years.

Elementary (K-6th)

Hello,
After 25 years of teaching K-12 all grades and all subjects, I believe I am qualified to tutor any subject in the kindergarten through sixth grade level. My credential is in English, math and science, but I believe I am qualified to tutor any subject. I have a way of figuring out if a student is stuck and get him or her past that place. I have a way of explaining a difficult subject on a simple level. I am patient.
Thank you for your interest.
Janet Wherry

Elementary Math

I am expert at identifying where a student is stuck. I explain things very clearly. I know how to explain the methods of all basic math very well. I have been very successful in helping a student who is struggling with Common Core. My life teaching credential is in mathematics and I have been teaching and tutoring for years.

ESL/ESOL

My experience teaching ESL is as follows: I worked as an English teacher at The Discovery Center American School, Taiwan. 2007-2008. I also taught math and science there. From 1983 on, I have taught ESL in Redwood City at Wherry Academy. At one time I had a class with students from Taiwan, Mexico and South Korea. My English skills are strong. I am a published writer of young adult science fiction. I am currently enrolled in a doctoral program at the University of Phoenix. My grades in writing there are always A level. I have a way of explaining things clearly, which helps when speaking with a student with English as a second language.

Homeschool

I have run small private schools since 1983 and am very good at teaching all subjects, especially on a one-on-one basis. I have classrooms in Redwood City and San Francisco for the student's convenience. My California teaching credential in science, English and math additionally qualifies me to homeschool. Specifically, I taught a single student for one year at home in what the father called Belmont Academy. I created the program, gave reports and report cards and handled all matters as if Belmont Academy were a large public school.

ISEE

I administer the ISEE for students wishing to enter private school in the Bay Area, so I am very familiar with the test. I also tutor and teach how to take the test, giving students tips on how to approach the test and familiarize them with test questions. In addition, I am credentialed to teach the subjects covered in the test because my credential is in math, English and science. My experience as a published writer is valuable on grammar and writing.

Prealgebra

CA teaching credential. Years of experience in both the public and private sectors. A clear way of explaining things. Success!

Study Skills

I want to offer my services to help with study skills. I am a credentialed teacher in math, English and science, with years of experience in all areas. I have often helped students with study skills.

Wonderful tutor for my son!

I would highly recommend Janet to anyone looking for a great Math tutor. She has been working with my son for the past two years and really helped him understand the fundamentals of middle school math and increase his confidence in the subject. Janet's teaching experience and clear interest in her student's success make her a patient, knowledgable and effective tutor. She has helped my son study
