About Jane

I have just returned from working for a year at an American School in Milan, Italy where I was the college counselor and a tutor of English. There were 52 countries represented in the school. I have a very diversified background in government,higher education and business. It is always exciting to influence and inspire students to be the best they can and to believe in lifelong education.

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.

Career Development

I have a Masters from The Ohio State University in Higher Education with a major in Career Development.

I was the Director of Career Development at 2 private universities for 10 years. I taught courses, developed programs, and implemented strategies and programs for internships, employer relationships, and career days.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a MBA with courses in economics, calculus, human resources, management, etc.
I taught classes in 3 school districts for K-12 as a substitute teacher for 5 years. I taught English for a year in the American School of Milan, Italy. I also tutored many students in high school of different nationalities.

ESL/ESOL

I am certified to teach English grammar. I am a substitute teacher in 3 school districts with emphasis on English grammar. I am from the old school of diagraming sentences and understanding all the verb tenses. I am happy to apply these rules to composition which is so important in communicating ideas.

Public Speaking

In my political career, I spoke on the behalf of candidates to audiences numbering 3 to 4 thousand. I have made many presentations in my role as Director of Career Services in two private colleges. Also, I designed a course in Leadership for undergraduates. I suggest the following principles to be considered by public speakers:
1. Determine exact purpose and subject of your presentation; determine if it is to inform or persuade. 2. Organize/outline major points with a beginning, middle, and end. Generally think of 1 major point and 3 sub points. 3. Deliver in a style appropriate to the occasion to establish a rapport with the audience. 4. Most speakers prefer an extemporaneous style of delivery which is not memorizing but following an outline. 5. Important information needs to be repeated at least 3 times for the audience to retain for future reference. 6.Supporting materials such as illustrations, anecdotes and jokes can be interwoven into the monologue. These are just a few principles I use when I speak in public.

Reading

I am certified to teach English as a Second Language. I have tutored several children and adults with English composition and grammar. I have a Master's degree in Career Counseling.

Study Skills

I assisted high school students to prepare to enter college as Director of Career Services at two private colleges. I suggested that students (1)study in one comfortable place, (2) prepare each day (3) use critical thinking as they read assignments and (4) take notes in class and rewrite them after studying the text. I advised students to ask questions and make him or her known to the instructor. Finally, I advised the students to meticulously go over the test results to improve their record.

Vocabulary

I have tutored the GRE, ACT, and SAT reading and vocabulary tests. I taught English as a substitute in the New Albany and Gahanna school districts.

Knowledgeable tutor

I am writing the review of Jane by way of feedback provided by my daughter's mother. I arranged to have Jane meet my daughter Lola because I just moved across country for work and Lola will be following in a few months. Lola has been attending a French Immersion school but will switch to an English school in the Fall. I wanted to ensure she doesn't struggle when she makes the transition and starts
