About Janet

Do you or your child need help reading or writing in English? If your child is struggling with reading comprehension or basic writing skills, I will help. Perhaps you would like personalized direction with a private tutor who is knowledgeable in English composition, grammar, syntax and vocabulary. If English is your second language, you may wish to have someone like me with whom you can practice your writing and/or conversational skills, someone who is patient and supportive.

Although I have a B.A. in Psychology, I consider myself a lifelong learner. This is the attitude I like to bring to my students, that we are learning together. I know that I will help you or your child with English studies. Who knows what I will learn from you?

Other services: I will provide proofreading as a service for your academic or professional papers. I am familiar with both MLA and APA citation formats. Or, if you need help with English literature studies, I will provide additional support so that you fully understand and appreciate what you are reading within its historical context.

I have always been a bookworm, but I enjoy working with people just as much!

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.

Writing

I have used a number of methods to organize my own thoughts when preparing to write a paper. These include brainstorming sessions, index cards, mind mapping and the traditional outline.
I will encourage your daughter to explore different ways to organize and present information and find out which methods suit her as well as her subject matter.
