About Janelle

I love helping students succeed. As an honor roll student, I know what it takes to do well in classes and on tests. Now, I have a degree in secondary education, and I am a certified teacher. I want to help others attain their own success in academics.

I have experience tutoring reading (elementary and secondary), math (elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra, and Geometry), and also test preparation (SAT and ACT). I have helped many students improve grades and test scores, and their success is important to me.

I pay attention to how my students learn and adapt my own teaching to fit their needs. I am a strong believer in the ancient saying from Maimonides, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." I am dedicated to helping students learn the tools they need to help them excel in school. I am not going to just give them answers; instead, I will help them discover answers on their own.

I prefer to tutor in public settings such as libraries or quiet cafes, but I am flexible. I am willing to travel to homes, as long as another adult (at least 18 years old) is present.

I have also taught beginning piano in the past. I do not have a piano in my home, but if you have access to one, I could teach you beginning piano.

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.

Praxis

I took two Praxis tests (Spanish and History) to receive my undergraduate degree and teacher certification. I have experience tutoring math (SAT math, Algebra, and Geometry) through a different private company, and I am skilled at helping students understand math concepts. I have done well on standardized tests myself, and I have studied and taught techniques for test taking (SAT and ACT).

Study Skills

I have tutored several students throughout this year in various subjects (math, reading, writing). I have helped students organize their notes and assignments, and encouraged good study practices. I have helped students prepare for exams or quizzes by helping them understand main concepts and then details.

Before I worked with Wyzant, I had a Geometry student who was failing. I not only helped him with Geometry concepts, but I taught him how to study for tests. I showed him how to review concepts in the chapter reviews, and the importance of repetition in studying for tests.

As I tutor students I emphasize study skills such as organization, asking questions in class and writing down the answers, taking notes in class, always completing assignments, and reviewing main concepts and then focusing on smaller details (big picture first, then details).

I am a certified teacher and I have been an exemplary student. I have been an organized, and conscientious student, and I can teach my study skills to other students.

Janelle was excellent with my 7th grade daughter who was really struggling to grasp the various lessons and concepts being taught to 7th graders these days. She was exceptional and I would highly recommend her!
