About Janelle


Bio

I love helping students succeed. As an honor roll student, I know what it takes to do well in classes and on tests. Now, I have a degree in secondary education, and I am a certified teacher. I want to help others attain their own success in academics.

I have experience tutoring reading (elementary and secondary), math (elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry), and also test preparation (SAT and ACT). I have helped many students improve grades and test scores, and their success is...

I love helping students succeed. As an honor roll student, I know what it takes to do well in classes and on tests. Now, I have a degree in secondary education, and I am a certified teacher. I want to help others attain their own success in academics.

I have experience tutoring reading (elementary and secondary), math (elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry), and also test preparation (SAT and ACT). I have helped many students improve grades and test scores, and their success is important to me.

I pay attention to how my students learn and adapt my own teaching to fit their needs. I am a strong believer in the ancient saying from Maimonides, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." I am dedicated to helping students learn the tools they need to help them excel in school. I am not going to just give them answers; instead, I will help them discover answers on their own.

I prefer to tutor in public settings such as libraries or quiet cafes, but I am flexible. I am willing to travel to homes, as long as another adult (at least 18 years old) is present.

I have also taught beginning piano in the past. I do not have a piano in my home, but if you have access to one, I could teach you beginning piano.

Study Skills

I have tutored several students throughout this year in various subjects (math, reading, writing). I have helped students organize their notes and assignments, and encouraged good study practices. I have helped students prepare for exams or quizzes by helping them understand main concepts and then details. Before I worked with Wyzant, I had a Geometry student who was failing. I not only helped him with Geometry concepts, but I taught him how to study for tests. I showed him how to review concepts in the chapter reviews, and the importance of repetition in studying for tests. As I tutor students I emphasize study skills such as organization, asking questions in class and writing down the answers, taking notes in class, always completing assignments, and reviewing main concepts and then focusing on smaller details (big picture first, then details). I am a certified teacher and I have been an exemplary student. I have been an organized, and conscientious student, and I can teach my study skills to other students.

I took two Praxis tests (Spanish and History) to receive my undergraduate degree and teacher certification. I have experience tutoring math (SAT math, Algebra, and Geometry) through a different private company, and I am skilled at helping students understand math concepts. I have done well on standardized tests myself, and I have studied and taught techniques for test taking (SAT and ACT).

Excellent & Highly Recommend!

Janelle was excellent with my 7th grade daughter who was really struggling to grasp the various lessons and concepts being taught to 7th graders these days. She was exceptional and I would highly recommend her!

Shawn, 3 lessons with Janelle

Knowledgeable, great attitude, and patient

Janelle has been great with my 9 year old. She builds confidence and still challenges her. Kennedy looks forward to spending her time with Janelle every week. I couldn't ask for a better person to guide my daughter to not only understand math but to learn to enjoy it.

Nicole, 7 lessons with Janelle

Very organized and flexible

Janelle helped my son with his fractions and reading. She seems pretty great and pretty willing to find out where his weak areas are that he needs to work on and also she is very open to communicating with the teacher to better help my son. And she definitely goes above and beyond to find out what she needs to do so she can be prepared for every tutor session. My first impression of her is that she can help my son get back on track in school.

Candice, 8 lessons with Janelle

Exceptional Tutor

Janelle is excellent at making my child feel comfortable during their lessons. She takes time to go over items with him thoroughly and ensure he understands the material. She is also great to work with as far as scheduling.

Brendolyn, 31 lessons with Janelle

Above and beyond

Janelle went above and beyond to assist my son complete a major project for his reading class. She does a good job with my son and he actually enjoys tutoring. I can see a huge boost in his confidence since he began working with Janelle.

William, 14 lessons with Janelle

Patient, knowledgeable, smart and hardworking tutor

Janelle is an excellent tutor. She prepares topics and materials for every class. We never run out of topic, and I enjoy the class from the beginning to the end. she is very knowledgeable and I have learned a lot from her. she customizes my class into the way I like. She is the best English tutor that I have ever had.

Outstanding Tutor!

We hired Janelle to tutor our son in Geometry. He had a 35% in the class and his other classes were falling behind as well as he was feeling the pressure from his teachers, (who should have been helping him instead). Then we found Janelle, she worked with my son and gave him the confidence and ability to raise his grade to an 80%. This had a rippling effect on his determination, and his work in his other classes soared. He completed all of his classes feeling proud and confident. I will be using her again next semester for both my daughter and my son. THANK YOU JANELLE!

Susan, 32 lessons with Janelle

Explained things easily.

Did a complete chapter review in Geometry with my daughter, explained things easily and my daughter was able to walk through the math steps without feeling frustrated or overwhelmed!

Rebecca, 3 lessons with Janelle

Janelle is very knowledgable and patient.

Janelle is working with our son to prepare him for the ACT. She has worked diligently on helping him with his Math skills. We have been impressed with her professionalism and her passion for teaching.

BRYAN, 25 lessons with Janelle

Efficient, effective goal-setting and communication.

Janelle is professional and reliable. She has superior listening and communicating skills. Like most teachers/tutors, Janelle is knowledgeable, but what makes her a great tutor is her ability to teach what she knows. Because of that my daughter gained a first time understanding of some material in less than two hours. The same material her teachers just couldn't seem to explain to her in class. Janelle is patient and goes beyond the role of other tutors, taking the initiative to really talk to my daughter, create a whole new homework schedule for her, and even assigned her additional homework from another resource that has been tremendously helpful. My daughter feels more confident and motivated after working with Janelle. But what I most appreciate about Janelle is her reliability. I can count on her. That's so rare these days. We are so thankful for Janelle's help.
