About Jeannie

I am an experienced teacher with 13 years of teaching high school English, reading, drama, art history, and speech communication. I also have five years of teaching middle school and high school reading to students who struggle with comprehension and fluency. I implemented the reading program at Reed-Custer High School in Braidwood, IL. I currently teach remedial reading and career development and run the Speech Center at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. I have a bachelor's degree in communication and two master's degrees: one in curriculum and instruction, the other as a reading specialist. Not only can I help you with a variety of your English skills, but I can also help you with note taking, computer skills, proofreading, grammar, vocabulary, test prep, and study skills as well.

I value teaching that fits individual students' needs and learning styles. I believe that all students who want to learn can. Many students struggle with reading comprehension, test anxiety, spelling, writing, and vocabulary, no matter what their age. I work closely with students to uncover their academic needs, then work with them to discover what strengths they can use to overcome their struggles. I can also apply standardized testing to help identify reading levels and deficiencies.

Intuitive and knowledgeable

This was our first session with Jeannie. She was very intuitive to our sons learning habits and gave a plan to enhance his test anxiety. We will continue to have sessions this summer and move into a PSAT testing plan. Our son had positive comments after the session. Thank you Jeannie!
