About Janae

I specialize in Spanish tutoring. I studied Spanish in high school and graduated with AP Spanish level 5. I majored in Spanish in college at Christopher Newport University and in my second year transferred to a Spanish-speaking college in Puerto Rico. I lived in Puerto Rico for a period of one year perfecting my Spanish. I speak Spanish on a regular basis. I have previous experience tutoring those in Spanish. I tutored a girl who came to me with a "D" in Spanish, and she finished the year with a "B."

My tutoring method is very straightforward, and I expect students to do their part as well. Learning a language is about engaging oneself. It is impossible to learn a language by simply looking at a book. I work on pronunciation, spelling, and grammar. I work with students to find how they learn the best. Some need strict guidance, while others prefer repetition. I like to "assign" additional activities for students to ensure they are in fact learning the language and not simply memorizing. I am very patient and will explain things in 20 different ways if I must. My goal is to ensure a student is comprehending the material and feeling confident.

I teach ages 6-65. You are never too old to start learning a language and you are never too young to begin. So jump right into Spanish and have fun while doing it. I tutor those who need help with Spanish in school and I enjoy teaching those wanting to learn just for fun.

BONUS! **I will take $5 off what I charge hourly for any student able to do sessions at my house**

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 was a substitute teacher for nearly six years at the elementary school level. I have been a math and reading tutor for students mainly in grades K-4. I studied elementary education in college.

Spanish

I am fluent in Spanish. I put great emphasis on grammar as this is essential to learning the language. I have 8+ years of studying Spanish in high/middle school and college.

Violin

I have played the violin for 13 years. I started giving private lessons when I was just 16 years old. I played for the orchestra while I was at Christopher Newport University and was a part of the Youth Orchestras of Prince William County and the Virginia Regional Orchestra.
