About Janice

I have taught English as a Second Language to students of all ages in the United States, France and the Congo for over 25 years. My last teaching job (I am retired) was with the Bellevue School District where I was an ESL Instructor/Facilitator. Prior to that I worked in the Highline and Northshore districts and taught ESL at the college level in Los Angeles.

Although I have many years of experience teaching in the classroom, working one-on-one with a student is a real strength of mine...and I love it. As I learn about my student's instructional style, I adapt my approach to best support him or her. I can support the student in speaking, listening, reading and writing. In addition to my ESL endorsement, I am credentialed to teach Social Studies from elementary to high school. My tutorial approach is low-tech, supportive and caring.

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.

Social Studies

My undergraduate degree was in Sociology; education was my minor. I am endorsed to teach Social Studies to grades 6 through 12. As an ESL teacher, I taught Social Studies, US and World History to middle school and high school students. I have also tutored native-speaking English secondary students in Social Studies.

Writing

I have taught writing and all its steps - from brainstorming ideas to final draft - to students of all ages and levels. In addition, I have served as editor on a literary publication.
