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.

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

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.
Homeschool,

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.

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. Janet W

Test Preparation

CBEST,

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.
ISEE,

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.

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.

Knowledgeable and Patient

Helped explain some concepts presented on the GRE. Was very thoughtful and patient in her explanations. Does not make student feel dumb which is important. It helps to know what you want help with when meeting with Janet.

Best Teacher

Thanks Janet! Today you have made two parents the happiest on earth. The fact that to see the kid coming home with a smile and confidence that was never seen before is nothing short of magic. This is precious and the biggest gift that parents have never dreamed to receive from you. Thank you!!

Chem Tutor

Janet has a calm demeanor and uses great analogies to help you grasp difficult concepts. Our lesson was brief, but most likely will call again. I appreciated that she made herself available on such short notice - very professional!

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!

Kept my son engaged

I was pleasantly surprised that Janet kept my ADHD son engaged throughout the session. I hope this rapport will remain strong so that my son can enjoy learning. Our first lesson was definitely a success.
