Within 2 years, Janice has really helped me to develop and grow my English reading and writing skills. Not only have I made significant progress, but I also feel more confident with my abilities. Janice really knows how to hone in on a specific topic you are struggling with and guide you on the right path. Not only is she intelligent in basically all English skills, but she is also patient by assisting the student to come to the right answer rather than feeding us the answer. This way the student feels more confident and has acquired new knowledge with their own abilities. With Janice's constant positive attitude and compassion, practicing for the SAT started to feel more fun and engaging rather than boring and arduous.
Janice is an excellent tutor - professional, kind, and knowledgeable. We feel so fortunate that she has tutored our two high school sons through 10, 11th and 12th grade honors and regular English where they have made tremendous progress as writers under her guidance. With her thoughtful and individualized approach, Janice excels at helping each student clarify their thoughts and ideas, dig deeper into these ideas, and then express them in organized and well edited essays. My boys have all positive experiences working with Janice. She’s made a world of difference in their thinking and writing skills, and their English grades.
I worked with Nick for over three years, and I can’t say enough how wonderful it was working with him! He is an excellent counselor who really takes the time to get to know people, learns more about their goals, provides insightful advice, and pushes them to succeed. On top of all of that, he is personable and comfortable to talk to. Look no further for your counseling needs!
