Qualifications & Experience

As a tutor, I focus on different learning and teaching styles to reach every one of my students. I also incorporate 21st century skills to teach effective communication in both traditional and digital settings. Some of the skills I work on are reading comprehension skills such as annotating effectively, close reading skills, analysis, and synthesis, and writing skills such as writing fluency, organization, voice, word choice, structure, vocabulary, research skills, gathering information, evaluating information, identifying credible sources, proper citation using MLA format, college essay writing, literary analysis, rhetorical analysis, poetry analysis, persuasive essays, argumentative essays, and narratives. I also find speech and language very important. Oral communication skills, presentations, and interview skills are all skills that are necessary for college and career readiness. Both the student and parent response has been very rewarding. I like to promote a high-level of critical thinking, and believe that I have played a vital role in the student’s academic, social and emotional success that will take them beyond their high school career. I was also a nationally ranked figure skater, and was a professional ballroom dancer. I have a lot of experience in the dance, skating, and performance world. I coach figure skating as well, and understand students have to manage their time effectively in order to be successful students and successful in their extra curricular activities. I want to teach your child how to love learning!

Janine is not only passionate about helping students learn, but teaching them to enjoy the process, which can sometimes be hard for students struggling within a certain subject. She never gives up and is so patient and funny.

My son could not get started writing his papers at all. He had such writer’s block, but Janine took him through a step by step process and now he is able to get started on her own. She taught him how to break down the question, and search for textual evidence to help support his claim. She even created graphic organizers for him. He has so much more confidence now!

My son never talks about academics or school. He barely even talks to us at home. He was so excited about how well he was doing in English class that he brought it up at dinner. Janine helped spark a conversation with our son about school, and that means so much to us as a family.
