About Jean

I am a retired biology professional. I have taught levels of biology from high school to medical school.
I have been tutoring biology for nine years in my Potomac neighborhood and in several schools in the northern D.C. metropolitan area including:
Connelly School of the Holy Child, Georgetown Visitation, Gonzaga, St. John’s College High School, Landon, The Potomac School, Walt Whitman, Langley High, Bethesda Chevy Chase

When I retired I wanted to continue teaching the subject I love. So I started tutoring the subject in my neighborhood and in several private schools in area. The results have been great---two of my students decided to major in biology!!! Parents express gratitude for my work with their student.

Biology is a difficult subject and I tutor it in a way that facilitates understanding it and makes it enjoyable.

I use the same text that the student's course is using and direct our sessions based on exactly what is being covered in their class and homework.

It is important to realize that biology is a subject that builds on itself, meaning that what is being covered in the beginning, and all along, will be used later. So start as early as you can with a tutor.

I remain aware that the students always have other courses, other tests (sometimes unexpectedly) and extracurricular events they participate in. I stay as flexible as I can with each student.

I will provide references.
