Janna's English Lessons
My service stands out because I am fascinated by languages. I speak three: English (native), Spanish and ASL (American Sign Language). I've been an avid reader since the age of 5, so I consider my vocabulary to be large. I read at a collegiate level and I'm currently enrolled in a Medical Assisting program. I am very serious about my studies so I expect nothing less from others. My attention to detail and calm/reassuring way of communication will certainly make a comfortable environment for those I tutor.
I am dedicated to making sure no questions are left unanswered and I am not afraid of making mistakes and correcting them. A large part of what makes me excellent at tutoring is my level of patience. I make room for error and celebrate it because learning from mistakes instead of hiding them makes me a better student and person. I stand out because I expect nothing but the best from my tutees and they can rely on me to assist them in that.

I enjoy the healthy balance I have when it comes to work and play. I like to joke around and lighten the mood, especially when coursework can be challenge or even boring. I love to help others and ease their burdens. Learning should be fun!

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
The typical process for me, personally, is to first get to know what kind of learner my student is. Everyone has their own unique way of analyzing, memorizing and conveying ideas/text. I get to know my student's strenghths first, before diving into the weaknesses. I give compliments before I give critique in order to maintain a healthy balance.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm a college student and I've written many papers in MLA format for persuasive, narrative, and descriptive essays as well as expository/research essays in APA for my clinical classes. I have plenty of experience in proofreading and essay formatting. I was raised in a very strict educational environment where I was expected and encouraged to read/write consistently. I've participated in several creative writing and poetry programs throughout high school as well as college. I am extremely detail oriented and not many mistakes slip by me. I am cautious yet creative with my words and I take that same approach with my tutoring style.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Depending on the level and workload, I usually charge between $10-$25 a lesson. I try to make it a sliding scale for special circumstances because I want to make myself accessible to people from different backgrounds.

What kind of learner am I (you can be more than one)?
