I teach English/ESL to students of all ages, nationalities, and levels of competence.
About Janice A.

My students are of all ages and levels and come from countries such as Armenia, Central and South America, China, Egypt, France, India, Iran, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the Netherlands, among other countries. I also speak Spanish, which has helped in tutoring Hispanic students, as I can explain grammatical similarities and differences. In addition to basic ESL, my students are encouraged to learn American idioms, accent reduction, business English and proper American office etiquette, cultural differences between the US and their home countries, conversational speaking, and reading comprehension and writing. With my more advanced students, we engage in conversations in which they express their views on world events, philosophy, and other topics that interest them.

Excellent teacher! Jan has been tutoring our 12-year-old son in ESL for a few months now, and we have seen great improvement in his reading, writing, and verbal skills. Jan is always punctual and prepared. She brings visual aids and handouts suitable for his age and has introduced a fun word game to help him with his spelling, vowel and consonant combinations, and vocabulary. She is a great communicator and very pleasant to be around. I highly recommend her as a tutor for any age. Kazushi T, Beverly Hills

Great English Teacher Jan is a great teacher, she understands what you need for making your English language better. I have been her student for about six months, and she taught me so much and now my English is really good. With Jan you save money and you learn in the best way ever. She loves what she is doing and she is very smart. I shopped a lot for a private teacher on the internet and in social media and I am so happy I found her. My English now is great and I loved my classes with Jan. The time went very fast and I learned more and more with her about the English language. Sam S, Los Angeles

Thank you, Jan! We would like to thank Jan for her professionalism and her kindness. My wife and I had great English lessons with Jan for one month in LA. Jan managed to make the lessons very interesting, mixing general conversations and specific grammar rules, idioms, and vocabulary teaching. We were so happy with our experience with Jan that once back home, we decided to continue our lessons remotely via Skype, a way to benefit from Jan's great teaching experience anywhere in the world. We strongly recommend Jan.
