About Jeanette

I am an Air Force retiree of 22 years and have been with Broward College (BC) for 7 years; all of that time I have taught at the Downtown Center at Las Olas.

In the Fall Semester of 2016, I will be teaching my first class at the Central campus in Davie. At BC I teach Composition I & II, Professional and Technical Writing, and African-American Literature, online and in the classroom. I completed my undergraduate studies (English) with the University of Maryland Colleges, and my graduate studies with Kaplan University (Education) and National University (English). My next challenges include getting certified to teach English as a second language and becoming fluent in Spanish.

My interests include traveling, jazz music, reading, word games and puzzles, healthy eating, yoga, biking, and walking. I currently live in Pompano Beach, FL, have traveled around the world in the Air Force, and was raised in The Bronx, NY. An interesting fact about me: I am a 911 survivor; I was in the Pentagon when the plane hit.

I encourage you to contact me to learn more about my style of assistance. I am known for my empathy and genuine concern for each of my students. I am very organized and structured. None of your time will be wasted. Each person is an individual and is treated as such. It is important to learn to express yourself in the written form, as well as orally. Everyone has unique thoughts and ideas; we should learn to share our ideas with the world. You never know when you can make a difference!

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.

Grammar

I teach grammar at the college level, but can teach any age. I found many online games that will help your child with any grammatical situation. I speak Spanish, but I am not fluent; I have deep insight into the history of the English language and understand the problems that second language students experience. I know how to make learning grammar fun and the skills are permanent!

Public Speaking

I am qualified to teach this subject because I was trained by the Air Force to speak in public. I do have experience teaching public speaking; I worked as a General Education Instructor for City College where I taught more than just English.

Along with my Air Force briefing background and teaching experience, I also feel that organizing a speech is the same as writing an essay; I find both quite easy to do. In addition, I am good at providing tips for nervousness and on giving feedback for improvement.

Writing

I am quite adept at helping you write research papers. I use a very structured and organized approach to teaching writing skills. I can help you organize your thoughts and create a unified, cohesive, and clear paper. My strong suit is documenting outside sources: in-text references and creating citations. I am very familiar with both Modern Language Association (MLA) and American Psychological Association (APA) guidelines.
