About Janelle

I am a student-focused tutor and teacher committed to providing a supportive learning environment for students of all learning and cultural backgrounds. I have a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing, and an accomplished background in academic-level reading, writing, and research. My research areas include: Composition Pedagogy, Empathy in the First-Year Writing Classroom, and Form and Theory in Fiction.

I'm skilled at building rapport, implementing motivational strategies to engage students’ active learning, and creating a trusting atmosphere through sensitivity to students' strengths, weaknesses, and individual learning styles. I am also quite passionate about generating and tailoring lesson plans to meet students' unique needs, and can adapt my teaching method in order to achieve maximum results.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught first, second, and third grade at a private Montessori school. I have also been trained in the research-based Lindamood-Bell program, which dramatically improves reading, spelling, comprehension, and math skills for students of all ages. Additionally, I am currently an Instructional Assistant at Texas State University and will be teaching English Composition at the undergraduate level in the fall of 2014.
