About Jeanne

I have a Masters in Education with emphasis on Math. I have several years of experience in Math tutoring and over 20 years experience in the technical field of Engineering.

I also specialize in special needs tutoring, particularly ADD and ADHD. I found that I needed to work differently with these students and found a program to use that makes learning easier and also does brain training exercises that and simple and effective. I will be happy to explain the program more in depth.

In Graduate school, we learned about different learning styles and how to teach students in their own style. There are times when I need to use concrete examples and work up to the abstract. And there are times when I need to explain the language of Mathematics. I assess the students' needs and will sometimes go over some basics if needed. I will do what is needed to help the student understand the material.

I also tutor for the ASVAB math. I was able to help a student raise his score very significantly in order to be accepted into the Army. His father and he were very pleased.

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.

Special Needs

In 2015, I worked as a Personal Care Assistant in the schools, working one-on-one with special needs children, including the Autism Spectrum. I assisted the students in daily needs, helped to keep them focused on their task in class, and explained the lesson to them as needed. Duties also included helping them from class to class.

In 2015, I also worked at a Brain Balance Center with children from the Autism Spectrum as a tutor in reading and math.

I look forward to helping more students see that learning can be easy and fun and they can succeed.
