Hi!

I am a Washington state certified teacher (preK-8th grade) with dual endorsements in elementary education and ESL. I have years of experience in working with children and adults who need help in reading, math, writing, and English as a second language (ESL).

I have been tutoring students/adults for about three years now, many of whom have special needs (e.g., dyslexia, ADHD, Aspergers) or a combination of needs (e.g., special needs and English language development). I am available days, evenings, and weekends and conveniently come to your home. I look forward to discussing your child's needs (or yours) and how I can help her/him to become a successful student in school.

Jana is an excellent tutor.

Jana is very responsible and structured. She helped our son tremendously. Five starts for Jana. My son needed tutoring in multiple subjects and Jana put him on a schedule that helped us catch up with homework and focus on asserting his learning in key elements that were required by the school. I'd recommend her to any kid in need to focus and structure himself/herself.

Excellent ESL tutor

Jana was exactly the teacher our 8 year old daughter needed in order to improve her English. Our daughter had just moved from Thailand and needed an experienced teacher that could quickly assess our daughter's skill level and develop an organized lesson plan. We only had 5 weeks before the start of the school year and the 2 hour sessions were fairly intense. Needless to say, our daughter did great because Jana was able to incorporate fun activities into the learning lessons. The improvement in our child's grammar and vocabulary were remarkable. I would not hesitate to recommend Jana as a ESL tutor. She was a professional in every aspect.
