About Janine

I have recently relocated to the Pittsburgh area. For the past 10 years I have been teaching High School mathematics in Connecticut. In the regular classroom I have taught all levels from remedial pre-algebra through advanced statistics. I’ve also had the opportunity to teach test prep courses and credit diploma courses in mathematics and finance.

I spent several years as the Curriculum Assistant for the mathematics department of a High School. I also led the senior portfolio and advisory program during its inaugural years at Ellington High School; co-chaired the NEASC curriculum committee; participated in our loss of credit appeals committee; conducted a Saturday detention in Hartford; was a member of the NHS induction committee; served as class advisor for the class of 2013; and officiated home track meets.

I believe continued learning is vital for an effective teacher. Throughout the school year I actively seek information on new initiatives and teaching strategies such as Data Driven Decision Making, Scientifically Research Based Interventions, SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium, Common Core, and ways to incorporate differentiation and technology into my classroom. In the summer months I have been a part of the curriculum writing team for our department.

I am a highly motivated team player and as an innovative and dedicated teacher, who connects well with my students, am excited at the prospect of new challenges.

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

Praxis scores are only held for 10 years. Because I taught in CT for 11 years, I had to re-take this exam in July 2016. My score was 178.
