About Jean

I'm a dedicated educator. My enthusiastic and dynamic teaching methods help to build a child's self-esteem and nurture a lifelong love of learning. I have been teaching since August 1996. I have taught most of those years in first and second grade, but I have also taught fourth and fifth grade as well as science lab for K-12. I am an experienced tutor. I have been tutoring children for about 15 years. I want children to realize they can do the work and achieve better understanding and grades.

I specialize in Elementary Education. Phonics instructions and decoding, reading comprehension, and math are the subjects I tutored the most. Developing study strategies tailored to your child is also a service I provide. Helping children feel success in school is my main goal.

I try to be flexible with my time. While I do need 2 hours in advance to cancel, if you are able to give notice sooner, please do so. I will be happy to schedule a make-up session.

I look forward to hearing from you to help your child achieve success.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Master of Arts in Education from Spring Hill College, Mobile, AL and am a Certified Louisiana Elementary Teacher

Handwriting

I have a masters degree in education. I am a certified Louisiana teacher. I have taught both first and second grade for six years. In first grade, I taught students to write on the lines correctly with proper spacing as well as correct formation. In second grade, I had to teach cursive writing. By the end of second grade my students were writing everything in cursive.

Phonics

I have a masters degree in education. I hold a valid Louisiana certification. I taught both first and second grade for six years. Phonics is the key to reading any word. In first grade, we continue reinforcing short vowels and teach long vowels, r controlled vowels, blends, etc with application. In second grade all these rules are reviewed, practiced for increased fluency, as well as adding additional skills.

Excellent tutor

Jean is working with my son on handwriting. Her previous experience as a teacher made her the perfect tutor. My son was initially leery to try tutoring but after his first lesson with Jean he was so excited to learn and "loved" tutoring. She is knowledgeable and patient and I would recommend her to anyone.
