About Janys

I am a retired teacher; I taught Speech, English and Journalism for many years. I taught 6th grade through university level.

I have taught foreign students who knew no English when they arrived and who excelled quickly. I believe in showing the student where the errors are and leading them to make the corrections. I do not do the work for them. One only learns by doing with guidance.

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.
