About Jan

I taught high school for 25 years, doing early retirement so that I could write. I did begin my career in novel and creative nonfiction writing, but I also started teaching at Bradley University. That was 14 years ago, and I'm still teaching there. I teach Communication and also English.
While teaching on the high school level, I took students to Europe every summer for 15 years. Having lived in Europe, I love to travel there and believe that travel is the number one means of education. Thus, I loved sharing the old-world culture of Europe with young people. At Bradley, I've been involved in the Study Abroad Program for 5 years, and I have had the privilege of teaching English in London and Spain during January Interim and May Interim. It's such a thrill to watch the students as they learn of new cultures and experience the world.

I have tutored in Dunlap area for 5 years, helping students with their writing, grammar, and literature. I have always loved the one-on-one level of teaching because I am able to help the student with his/her individual needs.

I believe that I was born to be a teacher. I have always loved my profession and look forward each day to teaching and interacting with students. I am qualified and certified to teach grammar, literature, public speaking, writing, proofreading and editing.

I would look forward to hearing from you and becoming your tutor.

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.

Public Speaking

I am state certified by Illinois to teach public speaking in grades 6-12. I am currently teaching Communication 103 (the basic speech class) at Bradley University, Peoria, IL. I have been there for 16 years and taught English and Speech at Pekin Community High School for 25 years.
