About Janet

I love teaching and learning, so I am a very enthusiastic tutor. I also have many years of experience teaching English to students who need to pass required English tests as well as to foreign students who want to improve their English. I began teaching English to students who came to the U.S. to increase their English skills during their school vacation. Then I taught ESL at a language institute for over five years. I am currently tutoring college students who need to pass required English courses and adults who need to pass the G.E.D.

I have a B.A. and M.A. with high honors from the University of California, Santa Barbara and have completed graduate course work in Teaching English as a Second Language at California State University, Sacramento, I have successfully passed the CBEST exam, a required test for teaching in California. I am a substitute teacher for the Clark County School District here in Las Vegas. Before moving to Las Vegas, I taught ESL for seven years at a private language institute in Washington D.C. and tutored there as well.

I am a very patient teacher with many years of experience with all ages and language levels. I will work with you until you pass that test and can use English with ease. I truly enjoy teaching and learning, so this really is my passion. I also love language and people from all over the world so you will have a great teacher in me.

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.

Bible Studies

I have attended an in depth Bible study class called Bible Study Fellowship for over 10 years. I have taken a one year class in Genesis, Minor Prophets, the Gospel of Matthew and the Life and Letters of Paul. I have completed an independent study of Exodus or the Life of Moses. I believe that I have sufficient background to qualify to tutor in these areas.

CBEST

I have earned a BA and MA from the University of California, Santa Barbara, CA and have taken graduate level course work in Teaching English as a Second language from California State University, Sacramento. When the CBEST became required in California, I successfully took that exam as well. I have over 20 years of experience teaching and tutoring English to foreign students as well as native speakers who need to pass classes or tests to further their education. I am currently tutoring students in preparation for the GED and English 101.
