I am a Master's level Certified Secondary Mathematics Teacher, and also teach math on the college level. I have been tutoring students in all subjects of middle, high school and college mathematics for 18 years, and have seen many students greatly improve their understanding, confidence, and grades in math as a result of my individual work with them.

I believe that students who understand the "why" underlying the mathematics come to appreciate its value and are therefore more successful. I work closely with each student to identify the keys to his or her comprehension, and then concentrate on helping his or her mind make the connections necessary for understanding and mastering the subject.

My subject expertise includes pre-algebra, algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, college algebra, statistics and calculus. I can also support your preparation for the SAT or ACT. Please feel free to contact me to help you be successful.

Disappointed...

I was disappointed to learn tonight that Janet can't continue to tutor my daughter because she doesn't know the material. We switched from a previous tutor and was hopeful to build a lasting relationship with a new tutor to to finish up the semester. But after several lessons she can no longer teach my daughter anything.

Tutor responded:

I am sorry that you were disappointed, but I had previously explained that depending upon the specific pre-calculus curriculum, there were some advanced topics that I could not help with. I made your daughter and wife aware of this as soon as I realized it but they opted to continue with a short lesson.

knowledgeable and very patient

Very knowledgeable in all aspects of mathematics. Was able to help me learn not only what I am good with but my limitations and what I need to focus on for future visits.

Russell, 1 lesson with Janet

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

My daughter had her first tutoring session with Janet last week right before her test. Janet did an excellent job of helping her understand the basics of Algrebra problems she was facing. As a result, my daughter did better in the test.

Krish, 9 lessons with Janet

We are very pleased with Janet

Our daughter is so happy with her and her math scores are better when she is with Janet. Fully recommend her.

Zina, 40 lessons with Janet

Sweet and knowledgeable

Janet and I worked on homework for precalculus. I like how she took her time to help me understand.

Caroline, 12 lessons with Janet

Great teacher, would definitely use again

Janet was a great geometry tutor! This was my first experience with tutoring and she was very good at explanations and gave good analogies for me to remember definitions which helped tremendously! I would defiantly recommend her.

Selecia, 11 lessons with Janet

Very Professional

Janet was exactly what we were looking for in a tutor. As a certified teacher she knows how to address the situation at hand. We are looking forward to working with her throughout the school year.
