About Jan

Hello!

I have been an elementary school teacher for the past 25 years. My specialty is helping each child experience the joy of learning while building the skills and understanding for a solid foundation of growth. I have a strong background in Multiple Intelligences, using each child's individual strengths to bridge gaps. For example, a strength in reading could be used to develop a strength in math.

A self- proclaimed life-long learner, I delight in sharing the joy of learning with my students through an integrated approach. My love of music, math, dance, literature, and the environment is evident in all I do. I strive to create a learning environment that encourages imagination, problem solving, tolerance and perseverance.

Collaboration is vital to me. Working closely with teachers, parents, the community and each child provides a solid foundation for student growth.

I believe that all children can learn, grow and contribute meaningfully to the community. I hold high expectations for my students and myself. I am accountable to the state frameworks and for presenting the curriculum in a developmentally appropriate, engaging, meaningful and professional way.

Most importantly, I have heart!

Sincerely,
Jan

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 am a certified Elementary teacher (K-6) with 25 years experience in the classroom.

Elementary Math

I have 25 years of experience teaching Every Day Mathematics, TERC Investigations, and Math By All Means. I have an extensive personal selection of manipulatives, including cuisinare rods, unifix cubes, bears, inchworms, as well as a huge assortment of mathematical literature.

Reading

I have been an elementary teacher for over 25 years. I have used guided reading approach and took a week long training course from Irene Fountas (of Fountas and Pinnel). I also worked closely with the reading specialist in my school to develop a strong reading program that promotes reading enjoyment, the craft of reading, and comprehension.
