About Janet

I come from a background of Film, Theatre and American Sign Language. For the past ten years I have been interpreting and tutoring at various colleges. I have a great love of the creative arts! I love tutoring and helping students find a way to improve their grades and confidence by encouraging an appreciation of learning and how to apply it to each subject. My favorite part of tutoring is watching students confidence grow when they see their accomplishments. I would like to see each student's session be an enjoyable learning experience.

I have been a American Sign Language Interpreter for over ten years. In that time I have tutored both hearing and Hard of Hearing students in ASL, ESL (Eng. as a second Language), Theatre, English, Art, and Math. I have also tutored actors when they needed to learn ASL for a role. I have tutored many HOH students in learning ASL and in learning ESL as well. I've tutored many students in English, Computer, Math and Art.

I started my career in television and worked for 25 years as a producer on various television shows. I have a vast knowledge of both Film and Television and can be a valuable asset in this area as I have an enormous amount of experience in both behind the camera knowledge and in front of the camera knowledge.

I am available Mon. - Fri. 8:00am - 4:00pm. and Sat./Sun. 10:00am - 3:00pm

My rate is $55 in person. I do offer discounted (per person) group rates. For Hard of Hearing no more than three in the group. Please contact me for details. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!!

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.

Film

For over twenty-five years I worked in the Entertainment Industry. I was a producer on various television series for the there major networks, NBC, ABC and CBS. I loved what I did and would love to tutor a student in this field of study. I have vast experience in the field of film and television and could be as asset as a tutor for someone needing extra learning assistance in this area.

Hard Of Hearing

I have worked for over ten years as a Sign Language Interpreter at various colleges in the Los Angeles area. I deal with Hard of Hearing students on a daily basis. And, I have also tutored many students in learning American Sign Language as a second language.

Sign Language

I have been a Sign Language Interpreter for over ten years. During that time I have worked exclusively at the college levels. I have tutored hearing adults privately who wanted to learn Sign Language.
At various colleges I not only tutored deaf students who were learning American Sign Language as a second Sign Language, but in other subjects such as English, Math, Film, Art and Computer Science.

Theater

I've been involved hands-on with Theatre from elementary school, middle school, high school, college and even to the point of producing a play several years ago in West Hollywood.
I have extensive knowledge about Theatre and all it entails. As a tutor I use that experience to help you learn all the facets about play production and being on stage while making the process a fun one.
