About Jane E. Smith
Jane Smith has a Bachelor’s degree in English from Winthrop University in South Carolina and a Master’s of Fine Arts from Southern New Hampshire University. She has taught public school grades 7-12, private school grades 9-11 and homeschooled two of her own children for several years.
As a former homeschooler, Mrs. Smith understands the challenges and rewards that homeschooling offers families. A home education done well is just like having your own private teacher. However, some parents may not feel equipped to teach a college-bound student English skills all the way through high school. A well-rounded education will include modern classics, nonfiction and fiction. Mrs. Smith can help you to design the highest quality English curriculum to ensure your child will be college-ready.
In California, Mrs. Smith worked with Chinese exchange students and students who came to live in the US with their parents. She visited many cities in China when she was there to adopt her two daughters. Shanghai, Nanjing, Nanchang, and Guangzhou are some of her favorite places in China. She has hosted Chinese exchange students during the summer and has worked with visiting students from age 12 -17 involving them both in language studies and cultural field trips.
