"Good Day! My name is Janice and I have taught and tutored for over 35 years in a variety of subjects from Pre-K thru College level work. I currently tutor private and small groups in Math, Reading, English, Science, History, Psychology, Public Speaking, and Theatre. I am available for proofreading papers and research projects. I also teach test prep classes for AP exams, the SAT and the ACT. Every child is different and unique both as a person and a learner. I have taught special need learners as well as children in gifted and talented programs. In addition to my work, I have homeschooled my 4 wonderful and very unique children, each with different strengths, interests and learning styles.

I love learning, exploring, experimenting and teaching. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. I earned my Masters from George Washington University and completed my doctoral training from Johns Hopkins University. I have degrees and minors in Psychology, Biology, Criminal Justice, Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Public Health. I also have 15+ years of working in the Theatre, teaching acting and dance in New York, and performing and casting National Tours of Broadway shows. To me, there is no better feeling then working with a person, child or adult, and witnessing the “lightbulb” go on! Sharing knowledge is as important to me as having mastered it myself.

Learning, however, should be fun, not monotonous or rote. I try to relate topics to your child’s interests and make sure that we have plenty of examples and exercises to practice what we have learned. Whether we work online or in person, we will work on a white board and may also use manipulatives, flash cards, sing songs, play games, or explore videos and other online resources. Working and communicating with parents is also very impo" less...
