About Janet

I have a degree in mathematics from Emory, and spent many years as a computer analyst. I prefer tutoring elementary and middle school math, as well as GED math preparation, but will also tutor high school level math. I believe that it is important to understand the concepts behind the problems, and work with the student to improve foundation skills when necessary. I use a "directed discovery" approach, and try to relate the math to something of interest in the student's life.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Although I more often tutor middle school and high school students, I also have considerable experience with younger children. While tutoring at a Sylvan Learning Center in Nashville for several years, I frequently worked with students from kindergarten age on up. I successfully prepared my own three children for school so that they were ahead of the game. I like to use a "directed discovery" approach, utilizing a lot of hands on techniques and games for younger children.

Prealgebra

I have a degree in math from Emory University, and have extensive tutoring experience, including prealgebra.
