About Janice

I have had the privilege of teaching students from preschool through college in the classroom and as a private tutor. This is my seventh year as an educational assistant in a local elementary school as a reading instructor and special education instructor.

During the years that I was completing my Master degrees in Special Education and Reading, I also had the wonderful opportunity to teach as an adjunct instructor for Walla Walla College.

As a tutor, I start by assessing the student's strengths and then help them improve their performance in a concise, step by step manner. I strive to be approachable and positive in my interactions with students.

I prefer to travel to a location that the student prefers. I am also willing to work with you my e-mail.
I have a four hour cancellation policy by voice mail and e-mail.

I look forward to helping you with your learning needs.

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.

Bible Studies

Since 1976, I had the joy of preparing and presenting many Bible study courses, with books and study guides and with study guides that I have prepared myself.

My special areas of expertise include worship, intercession, Esther, the blood of Jesus, covenants and the kingdom of God.

Dyslexia

I have a Master's of Education in Literacy Instruction and Special Education from Walla Walla University (2002 and 2003). For my position as Intensive Reading Para-educator in Walla Walla Public Schools, I was trained in the Lindamood Bell Phonemic Awareness program and Seeing Stars for instruction with dyslexic students. I worked in that program for three years and am currently using Seeing Stars in my position at Edison Elementary School.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been certified to teach K-8 Music, P-2 Early Childhood, K-12 Reading, K-12 Special Education. I have a BA in Music Education, AA in Early Childhood Education, MEd in Literacy Instruction and MAT in Special Education. I taught Music in the Milton-Freewater School District for three years. I am currently working in the Resource Room at Edison Elementary School as a para-educator.

Phonics

I have a Master's Degree in Literacy Instruction. I was also trained in the Lindamood Bell Phonemic Awareness program, Seeing Stars and Signs for Sounds. I am currently teaching Lindamood Bell Phonemic Awareness, Seeing Stars and Signs for Sounds in the Resource Room at Edison Elementary School.

Piano

I have a BA in Music Education and taught general music and band in an elementary school for 3 years.

I taught beginning piano and some intermediate piano for about a year. I have tutored students since 1981. I am a para-educator in an elementary resource room.

Special Needs

I have a Master's Degree in Special Education and currently work in the Resource Room at Edison Elementary School.

I have taught students with learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, autism/Asperger's Syndrome, and many other special needs.

Study Skills

I have Master Degrees in Literacy Instruction and Special Education. During past tutoring sessions, I have helped teach students how to take notes, or diagram paragraphs that they are reading. I help students prepare to write stories using graphic organizers. I use flash cards, computer programs and learning games to help students learn basic skills such as letter identification and sounds. I was a teaching assistant for Walla Walla Community College helping students learn materials for their GED tests, including using practice packets and tests.

Writing

I have Master Degrees in Literacy Instruction and Special Education. I teach writing at the elementary school level on a regular basis. I have also helped university students with their college writing assignments. I would be happy to assist you with your writing projects.
