About Janet

As a young child I used to love reading because I could show my parents how "smart" I was. I really cared about pleasing my parents and so getting good grades was a big deal. Reading the newspaper with them and telling them about school was a highlight of my day after school. Also when I was younger, most spelling tests were on Friday and I would have an entire week of spending time with either my parents or friends practicing. All of these types of experiences were good for me because I had support. I was encouraged to learn. I became an independent thinker because I had positive feedback every step in my learning to become a better student and reader.

I like tutoring because I like helping students with "their" interest to improve or to learn. Helping with basic reading skills and remedial skills also ensures confidence in students because they learn to communicate as well. As their confidence increases and skills increase then they will become stronger students in comprehension and with further development better writers. My previous experience has been as a Reading Counselor for Summer Camps throughout Baltimore City Public Schools, Reading Tutor at Baltimore City Public Schools and volunteer Dyslexia Reading Tutor.

I am interested in supporting students build confidence in reading and comprehension skills.

Improving our reading skills one lesson at a time.
