Qualifications & Experience

Hi! My name is Janey, I have a Bachelor of Arts from Brown University and am currently studying for my MFA in Fiction at Columbia University. I specialize mostly in standardized tests and writing (including editing college essays), but am also open to teaching several other subjects, including Statistics and Biology. I believe that every student learns at his or her own pace, and that different methods work for every individual. I would love to help you design an education that works for you or your child!

I loved working with Janey, she was a life-saver. I would not have made it through the college admissions process without her. Writing is not my strong suit, and my personal essay was in rough shape. She immediately knew what I wanted to come across, and patiently edited my essay more than ten times, just to make sure it was completely right. Now, I'm at Stanford University. I highly recommend Janey as a tutor!

Janey is amazing! I've always been interested in creative writing but did not know where to start. My current job has no creativity, other than writing work emails (no fun). I found Janey and immediately noticed improvement in my writing. She started by planning out weekly exercises to help me get into the creative mindset. After a few months, I finally finished my first short story that I am very proud of. Since then, I've continued to write short stories. I still meet with Janey regularly to edit my work and brainstorm on ways to improve my writing. She is definitely the best tutor I've ever had!

Janey was an excellent tutor. She helped me through several of my college courses, including Statistics and my English literature requirement. She was always patient and kind, willing to explain concepts several times in several different ways until I understood it. She's very sharp and clearly is invested in her students' success.

Janey is a very effective tutor who helped my daughter address her struggles with reading and writing. She is very nice and good with children. Would definitely recommend her.
