About Jo-Jeanne

The experience I offer is a practical one. With my degree being in music, it is having been a published writer for years that I base my teaching qualifications on. And it is with patience and kind determination
that I offer what is so wonderfully my passion.

The best way I learned anything was with someone who was excited about my betterment, my growth and was there to encourage and support me in all possible ways. So, I too offer that atmosphere to make it a time
that is looked forward to.

As I said my BA was in music and I taught elementary music history. And my tutoring ranged anywhere from elementary to college age students. I am a published writer of short stories and poetry and I have also written a children's book. Within the studios, I held the position of screenwriter, script analysis, editor, researcher and associate producer.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Film

I have worked within the film industry for 20 years, and having a degree in film is the exception to the rule as to what a college degree will achieve in this chosen profession. Unfortunately, with all the particular protocols and nuances of this business, it is the hands-on experience of the work done within the studios that gives one the knowledge needed for success.

Grammar

I have been a published writer of short stories and poetry and a screenwriter with several scripts at major studios for over fifteen years. In working at Disney for one particular project, it is, as it always is, imperative that we be our own editor as well. So, our grammar and proper phrasing (with an accepted amount of creative license) must be exact for it be accepted in its climb up the ladder from page to screen…or with more literary works, idea to hardback.

Handwriting

I have been studying calligraphy my entire life, and just naturally having excellent penmanship. The work I've done in this area of personal writing for others, I believe allows me to tutor others in this area. I feel strongly about perpetuating this skill because I see handwriting becoming a lost "art". Something that should not be lost, but encouraged. With the act of pen to paper being such a historical part of our communication, we should endeavor to preserve it.

Public Speaking

Beginning my life in Los Angeles as an actress, was the best possible teacher for gaining the confidence and knowledge I needed to present myself as a "public speaker" in all parts of my life. Knowing how to present yourself, whether it be a presentation for work or a passion you feel devoted to, the way in which that appearance is made, the words chosen and how you literally handle yourself, is the art that will define what you need to imbue your audience with and the successful outcome you want.

Writing

I have been a published writer of short stories and poetry and a screenwriter with several scripts at major studios for over fifteen years. At this time, I am creating a series of children's books for a much more enticing and interesting way for children to learn geography and language and in pre-production of taking a true life novel to script. As always, it is imperative that we be our own editor as well to be the kind task master and bring about that perfect pairing of right and left brain. Writing is not only an inspired work, but one of exactness. Essential in reaching our readers with not only our hearts and imagination, but with the design of words flowing in such a good and correct presentation that the reader is taken away to whatever "land" is presented on the page.
