About Janis

I am trained as a Special Education Case Manager and also as an Elementary Educator. I have a MEd also in Early Childhood from Bridgewater State. As a Special Education Case Manager I spend most of my day tutoring students or groups of students in the classroom. I have 40 hours in training in LindaMood Bell Phonics and am trained in the Wilson Reading Program. I have access to texts in both of these programs. I am able to tutor Math Their Way in grades 1-3. I am interested in working with students who are invested in their learning. I have experience modifying curriculum for children with Learning Disabilities and ADHD.

Last year I worked as Literacy Coach in the Middle School. I am fluent in teaching reading and writing, stressing vocabulary development and understanding paragraph construction. To be a good writer, a student needs to be a good reader with interesting life experience. I am trained in techniques for paragraph and essay writing.
