About Janee

My passion has always been teaching and dancing.

I have the capability of helping others discover themselves, their capabilities and weaknesses and, in that, providing the necessary motivation for further success. I have attended two dyslexia workshops. There I discovered the value of my approach: I not only motivate the students, I also analyze their learning techniques and creatively help them find solutions, their strengths that complement their weaknesses. I pass on that which my teachers were for me.

During my 25 years of living on the German economy, I not only taught German children English, I learned the German language. I am fluent in reading and writing and my accent is not that thick.

Being that I was a freelancer in Germany, I also taught ballet and creative dance for ages three to twelve. I myself took four years of ballet as a child, stopping after my first six months of toe dance. In 2010 I took and successfully resolved the first half of an education toward dance pedagogic.

When tutoring, my approach is quite simple. I begin by working on the subject at hand, observing the child's techniques and capabilities and increasing their awareness of the same. Then I analyze with 'tests,' the order of their learning methods (audial, visual, kinesthetic). From here, remaining on track with the given schoolwork, I offer a variety of learning methods possible within their strengths. Together we not only find how they can learn most effectively at home, but also what can be implemented into their classroom environment. We practice and enjoy these solutions, making them a part of their everyday lives.

Remember! Agatha Christie was dyslexic. I believe it's not so much what life gives to us, but what we make of it. And everyone was given some sort of valuable tools!

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.

English

The heart of my lessons is building the student's self-confidence and motivation and self-motivation. In high school, I was counselor-assigned for just this kind of work. Concentrating on these issues while providing support in subject matters, meant an increase in motivated, successful students. Take the time to see the difference self-esteem and motivation can make in your life!

German

I lived 25 years in Germany with the goal of understanding the typical German way of thinking and cultural influences. My entire private and business life were marked by the German culture and language, which I speak, read, and write fluently. I still have contact with my friends and family over there on a monthly basis. To compliment this, I have always been a skilled tutor in language, studying grammar, structure, mindsets, and learning methods.

Reading

As a young girl and as an adult, I was often chosen by teachers to tutor students with speech and reading difficulties. I have the unique talent of identifying why the student is not able to succeed and the tools he/she needs. I offer these tools in a manner that, like a ladder, builds one tool upon the other, leading the child to the top in a very effective manner. Teachers have always known why they recommend my tutoring and place me with those students few others can help.

Writing

Teaching various subjects with the intent of building the student's confidence and providing motivation and self-motivation skills is a job I love. In high school, I was counselor-assigned for just this sort of work and I have been using this innate skill since then. Take the time to see the difference self-confidence and motivation can make!

Janee is very knowledgeable about the German language, as well as common mistakes that flow from "American thinking." She has been very helpful so far, and I'm excited to keep working with her. She's also very pleasant and enjoyable to learn from.
