About Jeanne

I'm Jeanne! I graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor's degree in Spanish, and minors in French and English Literature. I began teaching ESL my junior year of college as a volunteer and decided ESL teaching would be an important aspect of my life from then on. After I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder, I continued to teach part time for a volunteer adult ESL program in the evenings. Eventually, I was hired for a paid evening position with the Aurora Public Schools Adult ESL Program. I taught there for nine years while working full-time during the day in corporations. I have always found helping adults reach their goals to be highly rewarding and deeply meaningful.

I am currently tutoring international business professionals in Denver. I teach them ways to increase their reading and listening skills and build a powerful business and social vocabulary. I have also helped them to prepare for successful conference presentations. I use a multitude of interesting methods and resources customized to the needs of each student. Several of my students have seen marked improvement on their TOEIC scores after working with me for several months.

I am easy to reach and will always provide quick responses. Please feel free to contact me and schedule a lesson. I look forward to working with you!

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.

English

I have a degree in Spanish literature but also studied English Literature as a minor. I have a lot of experience helping students to improve their grammar, spelling, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing composition skills.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught ESL for over 20 years. I have experience teaching beginning through advanced language skills to adult students. My students have used these skills to find a new job or receive promotions and raises at their current jobs. I have also taught in an accelerated academic college prep program and have privately tutored Japanese business professionals in a tech company.

Public Speaking

I have been a multicultural oral storyteller at schools, libraries and special event centers for over 20 years. I was a member and club officer of the Lafayette Toastmasters Club, Speak with Ease, for over three years. While there I won an area contest, beating out nine other contestants for the trophy. I have helped business professionals prepare for conference presentations. I have coached second language speakers who were managers from a Japanese tech company.

TOEFL

I have recently prepared two business professionals for the TOEIC exam. They did extremely well receiving high scores that gained them respect in their workplace and positioning them for higher level management positions in their organization. My English grammar and writing skills are highly advanced and I have the ability to work with difference learning styles as needed. I am patient and encouraging, and will work with the students until their confidence and language abilities reach an optimum level.
