Writing is a fundamental skill needed to succeed both in school and in the business world. I promote a careful series of writing steps, from brainstorming through the polished paper, to enable students to achieve their best possible work. I have had success with even the most reluctant writers. My approach is individualized, and I work with students to help them learn lifelong writing strategies. I believe that following the six traits of writing is an essential strategy to producing a paper of which any student can be proud. ... More

Even at the first meeting, she prepared contents & lecture. And while having conversation, she noted down what she would correct about my English and tell me the better expression at the end. I figured she is very talented at teaching and has a great attitude. It was a very impressive first meeting. I was a little suspicious about the second meeting if it would not be as great as the first meeting. But the second meeting was even better! And the more time I meet her, the more I like tutoring with her. Jane not only corrects my English but also always comes with perfect examples of expression to explain that I had a question about and I could understand right away. She's always so passionate and patient. You can talk about anything with her. She listens very well. She can be casual but never loses professionalism. Also very energetic and positive attitude with good sense of humor. I learn not only English but also I'm influenced by her great positive energy and attitude which I value highly. And the review from her by email after the class is amazing! Elaborate and very detailed, so I won't forget what I learned in class. I just feel so touched by her effort and passion. I always can't wait to see her next time.
