About Janine

I have always loved education, as a student and later as a teacher. Having acquired three degrees in just six years, I truly believe education is the key to success and want to share my passion with others. My teaching philosophy is centered around four fundamental ideas: Diversity, Communication, Critical Thinking and Understanding, and Instructional Plan and Assessment. Each works towards creating an environment where I am able to work for and with my students to offer them the best chance at succeeding in the classroom.

I specialize in tutoring English (reading, writing, literature) for success both in school and on standardized tests such as the PSAT and SAT. I am also a certified Secondary Education teacher. My goal as a teacher and tutor is always to challenge students to think critically. I assign homework after each lesson to help students continue to develop the necessary skills to be successful on their own. I also provide periodic assessments to demonstrate growth.

When I first began teaching and tutoring, I believed my focus should be on becoming a better teacher. However, the more time I spend in the classroom and working with students, the more I realize it is not about me. Rather, the focus is on my students becoming better thinkers and learners. For this reason, at our first meeting we can discuss your goals and establish an individualized learning plan. I also welcome feedback and never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent is not completely satisfied.

I am very flexible with time and will do my best to accommodate any changes in schedule. Although I have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer makeup sessions.

In addition, to ensure that students are able to learn in a comfortable and quiet space and am happy to travel to locations that best suit students.

I look forward to hearing from you and working with you to help you be the best student you can!
