My name is Janey, I'm a senior at Sarah Lawrence College, and I am passionate about helping each child I instruct achieve their goals and sharpen their strengths! I have over 7 years of combined camp and tutoring experience, from traditional day camp, to academic coaching, to summer school. Though my degree focus has pivoted to Planning and Community Development, I initially began my undergrad in Child Development. I follow a child first approach: centering their needs, strengths, and desires in all aspects of instruction. Regardless of ability, class, or educational experience, my goal is to help each child grasp difficult concepts, reinforce their strong suits, and most importantly, have fun! Especially with my younger students, play is a central aspect of my philosophy. When a student is struggling with a homework assignment, play can be used to reinforce topics and bring abstract ideas into the real world. I am open to working as a homework assistant to supplement a child's school experience, tutoring in particular need based areas, or instructing small groups in a pod environment.
