ESL/ESOL,

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.

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.

Reading

Hi. I am a classroom teacher and I own and operate my own private school. As part of the English curriculum, I have taught reading for many years. Reading aloud helps the student with pronunciation and vocabulary as well as animation and pace. An important part of reading is comprehension. Feedback such as answering questions and discussing the material is an important aspect of reading comprehension. Reading is informative and fun. I was born in Sacramento, California so my accent is local, and that helps a lot, also.

Encouraging teacher

Janet worked through some Maths problem with my daughter, and did a little essay writing within 30min. Time well spent. My daughter was happy about her first lesson. I'm hoping she will continue to be happy with her lessons and have increased confident in her work.

Tin, 21 lessons with Janet

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 for other subjects and her approach has really worked in those other areas as well.

Very Patient!

Janet is amazing! My daughter is 7 (almost 8) and in 2nd grade. I want to make sure she stays on target and interested in math. Janet is amazing at making sure she stays on target, interested and excited about what they are learning. Janet challenges her and keeps her learning. She is always very prompt, professional, and appropriate. My daughter is always very excited about her weekly times with Janet, which I think is wonderful. Janet has years of exceptional experience and is shows. She is one of a kind!
