About Janet

Teaching elementary students for 26 years has given me a great opportunity to learn how to meet the needs of each individual child. After retiring,
tutoring has given me the opportunity to use my skills and experience to help children improve their reading, math and writing skills. To provide you with a sense of my flexibility, I have tutored 2 year old children in preschool skills, a fifth grader in writing in preparation for the seventh grade STAR test, two different dyslexic children to improve reading and spelling skills and a second grader in math.
When I work with your child we will sit down and discuss your goals for your child, then I will begin by working to find at what skill level your child is working. We will then discuss areas of strengths and weaknesses. I prefer to work with your child's teacher, as much as possible, to find how I can help your child be more successful working within the curriculum of his/her school. Each lesson is personalized to meet your child's needs. If your child needs more practice on a concept, then that is what we work on until the concept is mastered.
I am happy to come to your home to tutor. We will need a quiet place to work and what ever tools are needed.
Teaching is a great joy for me and you will find me to be very patient. I look forward to working with your child.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's degree in K-8th grade. I have 26 years of experience teaching elementary in public schools.

Homeschool

Twenty-six years of elementary school teaching and five years of tutoring qualifies me as a home school teacher. As an elementary teacher, I taught all subjects each day. Then as a tutor, I teach math, reading, spelling and writing daily.
