I thought writing essays and personal statements were the toughest part while applying for graduate school. However, Janelle has helped me a lot through my application process. She brainstormed with me and gave me suggestion on what should be included in my essays. She also assisted me with the organization of my statements, words choices, and improvement of sentence level. Most importantly, she is very patient, nice and efficient. I will definitely recommend her as a tutor to anyone who need help in writing.
- Wanjun W. from Columbus, OH
Our daughter wanted help to create a college essay that would allow her to capture who she is while standing out from the many other applicants. Although our daughter had great ideas and knew what she wanted to relate, college essays have word limits and require finesse. Janelle guided our daughter helping to keep focus and not loose sight of her goal while infusing what was needed, discarding what was not, all while helping her to grow as a writer. Janelle was also able to provide some insight into the college admissions process from her professional background that was also very helpful. Now done, our daughter has a strong essay that she feels great about submitting. We would highly recommend her for anyone needing writing or editing help.
- Jeannette E. from Dublin, OH
Janelle is a very talented tutor. She uses time very wisely and my child enjoys lessons with her. She is a very nice, considerate person and is very easy to talk to.
- Alicia K. from Dublin, OH
It was the first lesson, so I can`t tell yet how much my English will progress. We introduced ourselves and she also told me about some funny festival in Ohio,(the Greek festival). She also suggested many ways to study English. I'll need some time to digest them, but I`m looking forward to the 2nd lesson.
- Mei Lin T. from Lewis Center, OH
My son is going to be a 7th grader in the coming fall. He loves reading, but not writing. That is why we have Janelle as his tutor during the summer. Janelle is a very structured and energetic young lady with many teaching strategies. She is very familiar with the middle school curriculum. After one lesson, my son told me he likes her, since she made writing fun. After seven lessons, he has even started to like writing and his summarizing skills are improving. We will continue to have Janelle as a tutor for the coming school year. We are very confident and expect my son's continuous progress in language art studies. Thanks Janelle!
- Hongyan W. from Dublin, OH
My wife came from another country a few days ago. She doesn't have enough knowledge about Ohio life. Janelle gave us the valuable tips through the lesson. We will have a great life here!!
- Toshiaki S. from Columbus, OH
Janelle is an excellent tutor. After taking the PSAT, I realized that I am struggling in the reading and writing sections. Janelle helped me to understand what the questions were actually asking and through that, I learned even more about the English language. She was able to identify my weak points and helped me to feel stronger in those areas. She is also very understanding and flexible when it comes to my busy schedule. I feel that through Janelle, I have learned how to approach the questions on the PSAT/SAT and answer them more efficiently and confidently. I am very glad to have her as my tutor and I highly recommend her!
