She's only been tutoring me for a little over a month now, and already it has AMAZED me how far I've come with writing essays. I was able to write almost a complete essay in about an hour, and all the while it felt easy to me. I never would have even dreamed of being able to do that before now!
My 16-year- old daughter had no confidence in her writing ability. Within only a few weeks, she was reporting to me that she was able to write sentences easily now. It's only been about six weeks, and my formerly writing-anxious kid is now working on an essay, and she hasn't come to me once for it. Writing used to be such a huge struggle, but she now has the confidence she needs to write well and do it independently. My daughter and I both highly recommend Jane.
Jane West works with my four children ranging in age from 8-13. She gives my children writing assignments to gauge what level they are at and to pinpoint where they need the most help. She tailors the lesson to each individual student's needs. I especially appreciate her focus on giving my kids a solid foundation. Before moving on to more complex writing formats she makes sure they have the basics down. Jane is incredibly patient and makes learning to write easy to understand. She also has extensive experience teaching. She knows how to make it fun and how to set up appropriate rules at the same time. I have never had a teacher from home using Zoom, and I was worried it wouldn't work for my kids. However, to my surprise, Jane successfully keeps my kids on track and learning. I appreciate not having to drive or travel in order for my kids to have a wonderful and high qualified tutor for English and writing skills.
Happy New Year, Jane!

Midway through 5th grade, my son's teacher held a conference with us to discuss my son's writing. He is very smart in many areas but he was struggling with writing. He was below grade level and falling further behind. I sought out tutoring for him and found Jane. What a blessing! We began seeing immediate improvements! Now 9 months later, we just had our 1st trimester conference of 6th grade. My son's teacher can't believe he was behind or even needed a tutor! Jane's kindness and sweet nature is apparent from the moment you meet her. She is very organized and I have seen her work with incredible patience and care. That said, my favorite thing about Jane is that I love how creative she is when engaging her students. She appeals to my son's sense of humor which makes learning interesting and he truly enjoys working with her. I have unwavering faith in Jane and her tutoring abilities!
