About Janet

You will progress nicely with my tutoring. I've tutored for a number of years, and each time the student did much better. My specialties are English (writing, spelling, grammar, correcting yourself [aka proofreading], composing a well-thought paper. French - reading, writing, verb construction and use, daily conversation, a bit of history of France. I love teaching reading, and I specialize in English as a Second Language.

While I have my MS in educational psychology and my undergraduate degree in French, I have had such varied life experiences that I bring all that to bear in teaching you. I have taught school, been an instructor at Berlitz, conducted language training to corporate employees, and worked at Berlitz teaching English to expatriates and their families.
I'm keeping my price affordable for you, and will be happy to watch your confidence grow daily with each lesson.
