About Janet

Reading Tutor Janet BeatriceHi! I’m Janet Beatrice. I’ve been working with children from ages 6 months to 15 years in various capacities for over 20 years. It wasn’t until I started working as a one-on-one reading tutor for children who were struggling to learn to read that I found my true calling.

In 1999, I completed training to become a registered Music Together facilitator. I planned and led fun, developmentally appropriate early childhood music & movement classes for infants through kindergarteners. I also created a fun, lively curriculum for my church’s K-1 Sunday school class. In February of 2019, I began tutoring Chinese children in English as a second language through VIPKid. These were one-on-one classes with children aged 4 to 12. I continued to tutor these wonderful children almost every weekday morning until November 2021. Once I started tutoring kids who are struggling to learn to read, one first grader gave me the best testimonial I’ve gotten yet: “You’re the best teacher in the universe!” I like to believe this is completely accurate, but I suspect he was biased. 😉

As you can see, I’ve made a point of working with children and youth. Why? Because I really like young people and I think that they are often underestimated and even disrespected. In my classes, my top priority is creating safe places where students are treated with kindness, respect, and patience.
