“**Highly recommended!**”

Mathematics can be intimidating to many people. I would like to put you, the student, at ease when teaching, so that you can more easily understand the subject without added stress. I have a special technique that I stumbled upon for learning abstract mathematical concepts. All difficulties in mathematics can be broken down into very simple pieces

Janet was extremely patient and thorough during our session. She patiently and methodically worked out each math problem, writing down every step, so that I could go back on my own and do the problems myself. I was nervous and tend to shut down when I don't understand something, but experienced none of those fears with Janet. She gave me the assistance I needed to prepare for a test I have coming up. Thanks, Janet!

Janet tutors/assists me with statistics in psychology. As an individual that is classified as significantly intellectually impaired due to autism-spectrum disorder--an extremely rare form in which the typical finding are reversed, meaning visual information processing is severely compromised while language-based processing is above average. Finding the proper teacher/tutor for statistics has been incredibly challenging for me due to the class being comprised of visually-explained information and forms of problem solving. Due to my disability, I have had numerous TAs, tutors, professors, etc. tell me that there is simply no way they can help me in this class because it's too visual and that I'm basically sort of screwed. Janet realized the multitude of ways in which the material is normally explained was in no way working for me very quickly and put as much of the course as possible into visually-excluding verbal explanation, while teaching me how to chart and make tables using Microsoft Excel as a way to bypass the written (visual) formulas that I had no way of comprehending after more than 10 hours of explanation from TAs and past tutors. I am happy to say that while there will be concepts of the course that my brain will never be able to fully process due to the way in which the information is presented, Janet has given me an understanding of the course and tools in which to solve problems that I have never had someone know to do before. I work full time in 5-6 grade special education myself but since my disability is the one in question, there is no way I could re-teach the material to myself in a way I would understand. Though we've only had a few lessons together I can't thank her enough for not only her understand of my disability, but the dozens of ways in which she's toyed around with methods of explaining the material so that I am able to comprehend it to the best of my abilities. I know have an additional accommodation through my university to be able to use Excel on stats and any other visually-based course with mathematic components. Though the grades aren't in yet I think I managed to pass my recent exam! Can't thank you enough, Janet!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER not only to students struggling with mathematics, but to those that struggle due to disability or learning impairments, as she has complete ability to play around with the problems until an explanation is reached that people like myself are able to comprehend in any way possible. Will I ever be able to understand the entirety of such a course? No. Is this the first time I've taken stats where my grade is not only above a 10 but I understand even some of the material? Yes.

In conclusion, I give Janet a tutor/teaching rating of 100%.

Excellent tutor! Janet knows how to break calculus down so my daughter understands all the concepts and succeeds. We are very appreciative of her.

She was extremely throrough and patient with everything that was hard for me to understand. I could definitely tell she was extremely knowledgeable and had my absolute best interest. I would not have passed my statistics class without her.

She is such a blessing. I have come so far thanks to Janet. She's the best tutor I have ever had.

Janet is very patient with Natalie. We appreciate her expertise in Algebra and her help with Natalie. Natalie is more confident and not so afraid of Algebra. Janet is wisely getting her into some Geometry.

Janet was wonderful. She was notified at the last minute that I needed help prepping for an upcoming test and she made time to come and help me despite the late notice. She was very patient and guided me through the problems and made Vectors easy to understand. This was for Precalculus.

Emily really enjoyed the lesson and I could see an increase in her confidence when talking about geometry. Thank you.

Janet helped me get ready for my upcoming stats test! She was extremely patient and kind and I look forward to more sessions with her. I highly recommend her!

Janet is Wonderful!!! She's working with our daughter that's going into 5th grade. We look forward to working with her through the upcoming school year also!!

Janet works diligently to listen to the students needs and stretch with the student. I am a grad student in higher order thinking courses and Janet has supported me all the way through four stats courses and now dissertation. So excited to work with her.

Janet B. is an awesome tutor. Not only is she very knowledgeable of the content, she is also very patient while clarifying any misunderstandings that you may have. I recommend Janet B. 100%. You will not be disappointed!

Janet probably has an IQ of around 200, but she never talks down to you. She's easy to understand and explains concepts well. She has been a great help to me in my doctorate program.

Janet has done an outstanding job with my 8th grade son. In just 7 sessions over the last three weeks she helped him get caught up on all of his late assignments and he brought his grade up to a 76. She has helped him gain a good understanding of Pre Algebra, something I was unable to do myself & something his teacher was obviously unable to do also.

My son has a new level of confidence that I have never seen in him pertaining to school. Janet not only helped him with math but her influence has seemed to have helped him in all of his classes. He had his best report card of the year for this six week period.

Janet has shown a sincere interest in helping him and I will definitely recommend her services to anyone in need. We plan on keeping her around for a while to help him stay on top. I am confident that the next report card will be even better. I believe that she would have helped him make an A for the six weeks if she had more time to work with him and if he wasn't so far behind when she started.

Thanks a million Janet! I am a proud parent!

Janet tutored my son before his 5th grade year in the summer, to catch him up. He had not passed the TAKS 4th grade Math and then by 5th grade, he had no problems and was commended for 5th grade TAKS math. I would recommend her!!

Janet is a great tutor and very patient! My daughter is doing great in Pre-Cal and is no longer failing her class. My daughter adores Mrs. Janet and is learning a lot. Thank you Janet!!!

Janet came in and got right to work with my son, who has been struggling with Algebra I. I was able to directly observe the tutoring session and was pleased that she didn't do the work for him, but expected him to do the work and explain it to her so she could make sure he understood each step of the process. She is very confident of her skill set and is very flexible regarding dates/times that she is available. I thought she was positively wonderful and was disappointed that my son's feedback... she was "OK". He stated that he did understand her and she explained things very well, but he did not feel a connection to her personally and prefers to keep looking for a tutor that is a better fit for him.

In spite of this, I would highly recommend Janet to anyone struggling with Algebra. I was pleased with her and think she is an excellent, patient tutor with a commendable skill set.

I have not taken math since my physics course for my undergrad. I do not like numbers or math. Janet is patient and understanding. She really helps me at my pace (slow) to learn step by step how to once again do algebra. I am 55 and math is a challenge but I need to get this right for my current PhD program requirements.

No matter what Janet will find her way around to make your tutoring experience awesome. You will certainly love it. She helped me understand a couple of exercises I could not understand that well. I will recommended to anyone in need of a great tutor for College Algebra.

Thank you Janet for helping me out this afternoon.

Janet has tutored my grandson (high school) and my granddaughter (college). She is very knowledgeable in helping them with algebra, geometry, and statistics. She is detailed in helping them understand each step in order to logically solve a problem. She is very pleasant and timely responds to emails. She definitely warrants an Excellent score in knowledge and availability.

My 15 year was really amazed at how 'easy" Janet made math seem! We have worked with Janet before with our older daughter and sought her out for the younger one, as we knew she is the VERY BEST.

She is patient and sweet with the students. She is the only Math Tutor for us.

Janet is an EXCELLENT tutor. I cannot express my sincere "THANK YOU" enough. My daughter loves her sessions with Janet. She actually understands her work now and I can tell that her fear of pre-cal is fading. She has confidence in herself and her ability since working with Janet. She has expressed to me how thankful she is for Janet. Thank you Janet for your patience and exemplary dedication with my daughter!!!

I want to thank Janet for everything she has done for me. She is very patient and will make sure you know what your doing before going to the next level. I would highly recommend Janet. I don't know where I would be right now without her help. Believe me I needed alot of help! I feel good about myself and I feel smarter!! Thank you so much!

The day before our first tutoring session with Janet, I sent her the problems my nephew was having trouble with. Janet not only worked out each problem, she made a copy for him to take home as a review. I am very impressed with what she did with my nephew in just one hour. Janet will be the first tutor (and the last tutor) that we call on when we need more help. Thanks, Janet!!!

Is very patient with me and makes me feel at ease to calm down and focus on learning. I appreicate her helping me to get a better understand of my math needs.

My son had his first session with Ms. Janet B. yesterday evening, and from what he's told me, it went great! We're looking forward to his next session.

Janet is very knowledgeable, helpful, and kind. She has great patience with me and is a pleasure to work with each week. She is the only reason that I am going to be passing my statistics course instead of failing badly.

Janet is very kind and extremely patient with JD. My child was afraid of math and didn't even want to try. The teachers wouldn't give her individual time and attention which made her feel left behind. Thanks to Janet my daughter is a stronger student. JD has confidence in Algebra and it shows in her grades. She was an "F" student and now I'm proud to say she has an "A" average in math. Thank you, Janet, for showing JD that there are other ways to conquer math!

Janet had a way of breaking down the information in a way that I could understand. She is perceptive in that she knows when to back up and explain again when I get lost. We work very well together. I particularly appreciative of her love of math which keeps the lesson interesting, not dry and boring.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have helped many students prepare for taking the mathematics portion of the ACT and SAT. First, I mix sessions, so the student doesn't get bored or lose focus. There are key topics that are reviewed, mini-quizzes and tests given to find areas of improvement and also to emphasize the students' strengths with particular problems.

I have prepared many students for the quantitative sections of other tests, including SAT, ACT, GMAT, GRE, and ASVAB. My educational background is in mathematics as is my entire professional career - including scientific programmer/analyst (worked in the aerospace industry supporting the US Airforce on secret research and development of new fighter aircraft - including the best of the F15 and F18 with additional features). Of course teaching and tutoring pure mathematics is also part of my professional repertoire. Additionally, I worked with and created functionality using numerical methods. I believe I am highly qualified to tutor/teach students in preparation for the AFOQT quantitative exam.

I have tutored several students in biostatistics. The applications of statistics in the biological sciences parallel the mathematics used for the statistics in psychology and business. The use of formulas is not standardized throughout all texts - so, I normally will request a student to send problems prior to our sessions so that I can prepare. I never request extra money for my preparation time. So, it is always to the students' advantage to send ahead of time prior to our scheduled lesson.

I have helped many students with their calculus problems, including engineering, abstract and business applications. Nothing is too difficult to tackle. Sometimes our subconscious minds can help in solving problems (I learned this when first learning theoretical calculus). It is important to study definitions and accompanying problems, noting new patterns within them, and absorbing visual pictorials given in explaining the concepts. Then, relax and allow your mind to take what was studied and rest. Sometimes we work way too hard consciously, when our minds can do some churning in the background. Receiving much needed help in a more relaxed manner, our conscious minds are made aware of possible solutions. Calculus makes much of the previous math studied much more easy, and applications in dealing with physics such as finding the slope, velocity and acceleration of an equation, representing the motion of an object, are far less tedious to find.

I have taught 6th grade math through 12th grade advanced math, and have tutored many students in 5th and 6th grade (through college and graduate school). It's so important for students to have a solid foundation in math, and these are the grades that are key.

In the past, I was a mathematics editor for GRE math preparatory materials. Also, I have tutored students in preparation for it. All problems can be broken down into understandable queries and then answered. Also, there are strategies for test taking that help when the problem indeed appears too complicated.

Praxis is a teacher's qualification test for various subjects - similar to the Texas TExES 135 Math exam - which must be passed for math teachers to teach mathematics in public high schools in Texas. I passed this 5 hour exam the first time taking it. I was told many people had not passed it even after taking it multiple times. So, preparation is key to ensuring competency for this important exam.

I have taught pre-algebra in High School and tutored many students as well. All concepts can be broken down into very simple facts, and then built into mathematical solutions.

I have taught and tutored precalculus for years - along with so much other math. I love precalculus in that it covers trigonometry in detail, advances algebra to new heights, and covers new ways of thinking about arrangements of numbers using polar coordinates. A great foundation in precalculus allows students to confidently continue their studies into calculus in the future.

I have extensive experience helping students at all levels of statistics. In particular, I have helped many graduate students in their advanced statistics classes. PhD candidates preparing their dissertations have relied on me to prepare analysis every step of the way; from re-coding existing data using applications such as SPSS and Excel to running statistical tests and interpreting the results. The writing of hypotheses and stepping through the written communications needed to express the findings for professional and academic research are also included. Unlike most mathematics subjects, statistics is not fully standardized - so, there is much more variance in the manner that this subject is taught and applied. Many students find this very frustrating. I help many students to get through the difficulties of misunderstandings that exist within statistics. I very much want the students, and professionals, to understand that though statistics is tedious and daunting at times, the purpose of its use is multi-fold. I am here to help you, the student and/or the professional, succeed in using the proper procedures and tools necessary to complete assignments, research projects and dissertations.

I have tutored in pre-calculus and calculus - both include the knowledge of trigonometry and advanced algebra as foundational support. All can be broken down into simple steps for solving - and there are multiple ways to solve, so choosing the one best for you is important for saving time and eliminating stress.
