After graduating with a BA from UC Berkeley, I have always worked with students, whether tutoring privately, teaching piano, or teaching in a classroom. I am very patient, positive and motivating. I have taken private piano lessons since I was 6 years old and have had 5 wonderful piano teachers throughout the years.
*** Specialties ***
I teach private piano lessons. Students learn to read classical and pop music from piano scores or chord charts, and play with proper technique and artistry.
I taught the 4 core subjects (Math, English, Social Studies and Science) for middle/high school students. The setting was a one-to-one academic environment.
I taught middle school students with mild/moderate disabilities as a case manager and resource specialist.
I taught English to Chinese students, ages 3-17 in Beijing, China.
California credentialed special ed teacher for students with mild/moderate disabilities. (Expires October 2018)
Certificate in teaching English as a foreign language
We love her
Janice makes my daughter feel very comfortable. She looks forward to her lesson each week. She is very patient and kind.
Doing a great job. Very patient and works well with kids!
Janice has instructed our 10 year old daughter for about a year. When we began lessons, our daughter had no experience with piano. A year later, our daughter loves playing and says that Janice is patience, kind and motivating. Janice is professional, yet personable and relates well to her student. We are very pleased with Janice and would highly recommend her.+ Read More
