About Janice

I love teaching and have a lifetime of experience at it. If you have a desire to learn, I can help you. As a tutor, I develop lessons that are substantive, challenging and geared to the individual's learning style. At the same time, I try to make my classes interesting and enjoyable. I have excellent writing skills, organizational skills and critical thinking skills, all of which enhance my performance as a teacher. I have been working with WyzAnt for the last four years and have successfully tutored students of all levels in Language Arts, Writing, Pre-Algebra, Math, ESL and Test Prep for the SATs, ACTs, and GREs. Professionally, I have worked as a museum educator for the past fifteen years and I have taught an advanced adult ESL class for the last ten. Before this, I taught Philosophy at the university level, Social Studies at the high school level, and I home-schooled my own children for a few years when they were in elementary school and in high school. I have also had experience working as an editor and doing market research for a textbook publishing company. I love teaching and have a lifetime of experience at it.

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.

ISEE

I have recently familiarized myself with this test and have already been privately tutoring a few students. In addition, I have tutored many students in ACT and SAT prep via Wyzant. I have also had a lot of experience working with middle school students.

Social Studies

I have a Master's Degree to teach Social Studies from Teachers College, Columbia University. I also work as a museum educator at a historic site. I have led classes there for a Teacher's Institute for social studies teachers.
