My goal is to teach my students *how* to learn so they no longer need to rely on me. In addition to three Clear California Teaching Credentials (Math, English, and Multiple Subject), I have many years of experience as a teacher. My primary love is language, but I consider that to include math.
As Mrs. B., my high school algebra teacher said, "Math is the universal language." I have experience tutoring English, geometry, algebra, AP-Euro, AP-US, AP-English, and test prep for PSAT, SAT, ACT, the Subject Test in Literature, GRE, ISEE, SSAT, HSPT, CAHSEE, and the GED. I have also created and taught a grammar course.

Was hesitant to have my granddaughter tutor with Jeanie because the cost is high. We have been through three tutors and were ready to give up and l decided to try one last time. After two sessions with Jeanie my granddaughter begin to "get it". she is so thrilled that she now understands. Has confidence and we are looking forward to her finals this week. Thank you, Jeanie.Susan, 9 lessons with Jeanie
Flexible and knowledgeable
Jeanie was able to tailor my daughter's ISEE learning needs. She was receptive to feedback and adjusted wonderfully. Thank you!Darlet, 2 lessons with Jeanie
Great help with the CBEST test
Today Jeanie and I worked on Math for the CBEST test I am going to be taking. She was great. She is passionate about helping your learning strengths and weaknesses. I am horrible in math and she told me simply go with your gut and don't second guess myself. Something my mothers always taught me but hearing it from a tutor I just met meant something to me. She was also the student and what I mean by that she wanted to learn what I didn't know and a lot of the stuff that we were doing, I couldn't remember and she slowly brought it back to my memory. We covered a lot of material in our session and trying to find what will help me solve each problem easier. She helped me come up with strategies to figure out equations and in addition took it upon herself to send me material for me to study and look at. She is great. I was able to be myself and not shy, I was able to get things wrong and she helped, I was able to figure out things by myself it was just a well all around session.Julian, 2 lessons with Jeanie
My teen really enjoyed her!
My son found her to be funny and easy to understand. She taught in her edits of a paper he was writing and my son felt he learned something from just one session. Looking forward to continuing relationship for ACT prep.Chanel, 2 lessons with Jeanie
Jeanie helped us with a review of the parent and student essays and gave some excellent feedback. She also helped Wiliam with test strategy. We will be meeting with her again.Lynn, 3 lessons with Jeanie
After my son's first tutoring session for the ACT exam with Jeanie, he said, "Mom, Jeanie gives me hope." He's feeling really confident that he will do well when take the exam on September 13th. THANK YOU MS. J, YOU are GREAT!Freda, 5 lessons with Jeanie
My daughter worked with three very capable WyzAnt tutors and Jeanie was by far the best! She was accommodating, extremely knowledgeable, and very easygoing in her instructional style. My daughter loved her, and brought her SAT scores up 200 points.Diann, 12 lessons with Jeanie
Great Investment of Time
Jeanie was very quick to identify which test my son should take (ACT versus SAT) then went on to identify my son's areas of weakness. Instead of focusing on areas where he had a solid basis of knowledge, she honed straight in on areas of improvement. My son found her to be really good at giving specific information about which questions on the ACT he would be tested on, and giving him strategies to deal with those different types of questions. His confidence and motivation have increased greatly after just one session and he is looking forward to working with Jeanie this summer.Ruth, 10 lessons with Jeanie
In coming to Jeanie, my daughter was in serious jeopardy of failing geometry. I felt confident that my daughter was able to learn the material but her teacher could never explain it in a way she understood. We find in Jeanie not only a different way of teaching where my daughter blossoms but she's been extremely patient and values that all children learn differently. Jeanie quickly built a rapport with my daughter and has even helped her communicate to her teacher better in class when something isn't understood. Her hourly rate is a little on the high side but it has been worth every cent. We highly recommend her for your child, especially the girls.Cristin, 8 lessons with Jeanie
Jeanie is a genius. Even after the first lesson, my son was hooked. Not sure how she does it but I'm glad she does! Thank you Jeanie.Craig, 24 lessons with Jeanie
