About Janet

The subjects that I tutor in are Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science and College Chemistry. I have been tutoring; along with teaching in a school district and as an adjunct at a local college; for 18 years. My students state that my best asset is how I explain items to them and help them to remember important concepts. One of my important assets is to help Earth Science students learn how to use those Earth Science Reference Tables. Most importantly I work on getting students to believe in themselves and that they can be successful. The subjects that I tutor in are Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science and College Chemistry.
