My name is Jeanette, and I am the perfect English tutor for students ages 12 and up. I have a passion and enthusiasm for the English language that I share with others.
I graduated from Millersville University of PA with a Bachelor's degree in English, with a minor in print journalism. I was a copy editor for the school newspaper for two years, and worked as a freelance writer after graduation. I was a proofreader for two years for Clipper Magazine, and have a love of grammar. I am skilled at tutoring language arts, with a specialty in essay writing and test preparation. I can help students with everything from increasing their vocabulary, improving reading comprehension, and writing a thesis.
I was a tutor in my spare time during my junior and senior years at college, and have also done so at several employers in the past ten years. My primary experience has been in proofreading essays for spelling, grammar, and content. I have also tutored high school level students in thesis writing and sentence structure.
I find that the best teaching approach is "one on one" with the student, looking for a student's areas of interest in order to inspire their enthusiasm for the English language. Once her energies are focused on the assignment, a student usually finds that basic examples, encouragement, and personal attention can help achieve any academic goals.
I look forward to hearing from you!
