About Janet

I've worked as a teacher and as a writer, so I'm especially interested in helping students of all ages sharpen their reading and writing skills.

If you're a parent of an elementary or secondary student who needs individual attention or if you're a college student or professional person who could use some assistance with your writing skills, I'll be happy to help.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's degree in elementary education from Buena Vista College, now Buena Vista University, where I earned a 3.43 grade average as a non-traditional student. I have worked with students in grades K-12 as a substitute teacher. From October through May, I worked as a tutor with A+ Learning Solutions and tutored seven children in reading or math. I worked with most of the children individually. Of the seven, six made very substantial gains from pre-test to post-test and attained grade-level skills or slightly better. I used the assigned curriculum which I supplemented with games, books and activities. I have an excellent reference from my supervisor.

English

I have a degree in education with an emphasis in English. I've worked as a teacher for ten years and as a writer for ten years.

Grammar

My degree is in elementary education with an emphasis in English and social studies. In addition to my work in education, I have worked as a writer and have written more than 1,000 articles for print and online publications. My editors often complimented me for writing clean copy, so I guess my grammar skills passed the test!

Patient and nice

Janet is very patient. Every time, she prepares well with the teaching material based on our previous conversations of what I need. She pronounces slow and clear. I enjoyed talking with her and learning from her.
