I have 3 boys ages 7-12. Somehow Janis manages to make time to teach and read with all three before she leaves. The kids love her and more importantly respect her.
If you can get her I highly recommend it.
She covers all subjects and specializes in science by making it fun and entertaining.
5 Stars all the way!

Janis first tutored our son in math. I was impressed with her admission to me that our son was smart enough to do the math on his own, but needed only motivation. She allowed us to be the ones to decide if we wanted to spend the money on tutoring after having this knowledge. We did continue, and she was really great with him. His grade was raised before we knew it! We then found out she gave guitar lessons and hired her to teach my daughter. She was incredibly patient and made the lessons fun. Both my son and daughter developed a strong relationship with her. I highly recommend her to teach anything!

My son is the legacy of both a world-famous composer Grandfather and of a Great Uncle widely known as a musical genius.
Unfortunately the opportunity to nurture any of that genetic musical talent passed me by, but it absolutely lives within him.
Janis has been remarkably subtle at freeing the music within my son's heart.
This is not only a gift for me, and our family, but it's a lifetime of unending self-expression for him.
I cannot recommend Janis highly enough.
Jeff H. Los Angeles, CA

I have ameteur guitar skills. I can teach you all of your basic chords, power chords, and bar chords. Also I can teach you how to read sheet music and guitar tablature.

And I can show you how to play tons of Beatles songs!
