About Jane

I teach and tutor students in English, writing, humanities, test prep, and study skills. I have a BA in English Literature and Linguistics, and an MA in English Literature. I have taught English, writing and ESL courses at Phillips Exeter Academy's summer school program since 2010, and have worked as a professional tutor for over 10 years with students of all ages, backgrounds, and learning styles.

Simply put, I LOVE what I do! I am creative, reliable, flexible, and fun--I invest fully in every student I work with. I enjoy preparing and personalizing materials and assignments to suit your strengths, needs and interests. In return, I expect you to be prepared and committed to working together. I want you to succeed, and I KNOW you can, as long as you are willing to make the effort and stick to the goals we set together.

I work with most of my students online, but I am also happy to meet at schools and libraries in Boston and Cambridge. My hourly rate includes all materials I create for our sessions and weekly progress reviews with my session notes and recommendations. I am available most afternoons, evenings and weekends.

If you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them—teachers love questions! :)

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.
