About Janee

My passion has always been teaching.

I adjust my teaching approach to your learning style. 39 years ago my grade school teachers began assigning me to tutor other children of all ages. They recognized my ability to assess the student's learning styles and implement customized teaching approaches with understanding, inclusion, and optimism. I have been joyfully teaching and tutoring reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, phonics, spelling, and writing since then!

Learning a foreign language is most effectively accomplished when simultaneously learning about the culture and perspective which that language grows hand-in-hand with. Having spent 25 years immersed in the German culture, I acquired their way of thinking alongside my American one and enthusiastically include this in my instruction. Likewise, as with English language arts, I customize my teaching approach to match your learning style, interests, and talents. Expand your horizon in more than one way!

Sometimes dance or ballet basics are needed at a later age, so that one can enter more comfortably into a course with participants of the same age. I had four years of ballet as a young girl, a year of jazz as an adult, and instructed dance courses for children ages three to twelve for eight years. I'm glad to offer you or your child the basic skills and confidence to take that next step!

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.

Ballet

As a child, I took ballet for four years and as an adult, for one year. Self-employed, I began teaching dance courses in 2003 and was successful in this through 2011. I had to end this career, since I moved to Ann Arbor. I teach ballet and dance basics, including technique and strength, in both English and German.

English

I adjust my teaching approach to your learning style. 39 years ago my grade school teachers began assigning me to tutor other children of all ages. They recognized my ability to assess the student's learning styles and implement customized teaching approaches with understanding, inclusion, and optimism. I have been joyfully teaching and tutoring reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, phonics, and spelling since then!

German

I lived 25 years in Germany with the goal of understanding the typical German perspective and cultural influences. My entire private and business life were marked by the German culture and language, which I quickly learned to speak, read, and write fluently. I still have contact with my German friends on a monthly basis. To compliment this, I have always been a skilled tutor in language, studying learning styles, grammar, structure, mindsets, and, more currently, teaching methods for those with learning differences.

Reading

Customizing my lessons to each of my students' learning styles, I was teacher-assigned to tutor ages five to twelve with the age of nine and have continued sharing this talent since then. In fact, in later years, I volunteered at the European School of Karlsruhe in Germany, tutoring children from all over the world. Again, my tutoring techniques helped many children accomplish their English language goals.

Writing

Writing is a process with clear steps and structures. With a 3.5 grade average during my college years, writing was my strong point. I understand the process because this is how I see and experience the world. Simultaneously, I have the creativity necessary to expand thoughts and knowledge to answer numerous, diverse questions and satisfy required page count.

Janee is a very good and knowlegeable tutor

I liked Janee's method of tutoring. She finds out what the student knows and then she goes from there. She is very knowledgeable concerning the German culture and the way people in Germany actually speak the language today. She is very personable and helpful. She worked with me on my accent and it was very helpful.
