About Jeanne

I have an undergraduate degree from Boston College (graduated with honors) in English, an MS in education from Sarah Lawrence College and an MFA in painting from the New York Academy of Art. I have worked as a teacher in private and public settings.

I am a tutor for children and adults. My specialty is to help with reading, reading comprehensive and language arts. I also teach computer design and fine arts. For adults, I have experience teaching English as a second language. I have experience teaching painting and digital arts to children and adults.

In addition, my paintings have been shown in numerous galleries and within many group shows. In addition, I worked as an art director working in digital advertising creation for over 13 years.
I am able to help students, young and old, tap into their innate learning ability. Please contact me for additional information and I look forward to helping you bring forward the best in yourself!

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.
