About Janet

As a certificated high school teacher in social sciences, an elementary school art teacher, and most importantly, a mom, I understand the process of learning, and I love teaching. I taught at the elementary and high school levels, and I have tutored individual students. I currently teach art at a private art studio.

I love the "lightbulb moment" in teaching and tutoring. My high school history students said they learned more from my classes than any other history classes they had taken. I make an effort to connect with each student, and to make my explanations clear and understandable.

I have undergraduate and graduate training in social sciences, as well as a deep love of history. I have a secondary teaching credential in social sciences and art, and I taught world history to middle school students and U.S. History to high school students. I have also tutored students in history.

I have been an artist nearly all of my life, and I have an AA degree in art and art history. For the past several years, I have been a docent at the San Diego Museum of Art, which entails a two year training process - the equivalent of a masters degree in art history. I have a multi-volume library of art history books, and I have traveled throughout Europe and Asia visiting art museums and public art sites.

Please contact me to learn more about how I can help you succeed in art or social science classes. I can also show you some great approaches for studying, and for absorbing and retaining written or visual materials.

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.

Drawing

I have been taking drawing and painting classes almost continuously for 42 years. I have exhibited my artwork in juried shows and have won several awards. I have a degree in art. I taught art classes as a volunteer in an elementary school for 10 years, and as a professional teacher for a year. I am now teaching drawing and painting in a private art studio.
