About Jeanie

With my Master’s in TESOL from the School for International Training in Brattleboro, Vermont, I received excellent training to be a TESOL instructor; I also have grades K-12 teacher certification in North Carolina.

As a long-time teacher of ESOL, I have experience both in K-12 and higher education, both in the US and abroad. I have a good deal of international teaching experience in France, Japan, Guatemala, Myanmar, Kurdistan, and Saipan. Within the US, I have taught students from all over the world, so I am familiar with their learning styles and needs. I have also tutored many people, both children and adults, from Korea, Taiwan and Japan.

My second language is French. My students have been at all levels from beginning to high in varying levels with the four skills. They have come from every habitable continent in the world, from so many countries. I have taught pronunciation, accent reduction, oral and written presentation skills, different rhetorical modes, writing, both remedial and standard, business English, reading skills, speaking, listening skills and TOEFL and IELTS preparation. I can offer all of these lessons. My students find me to be caring, organized, focused on their needs, and knowledgeable about how English works. It makes me happy to see my students' progress and success, and they are better prepared to achieve their goals from my teaching.

I am always open to how you think our lessons are going, so feedback is welcome. Depending on your schedule and needs, I will give you work to do on your own outside the lesson. If a scheduled lesson does not work out at times for you, we can reschedule, as long as you give me twenty-four hours' notice. I can meet with students/clients in an agreed upon place in the area where we live, in my quiet home in the mountains of North Carolina or online. I look forward to hearing from you and to helping you with your studies.

I teach all levels of ESL/EFL and can determine a client's level with assessment. I have taught TOEFL to many students in classes and also privately. At a university in Kurdistan, northern Iraq, I taught an IELTS class. I have proofread documents for doctoral and post-doctoral students and professionals in various fields. With in-depth education in grammar and writing, I can both edit/proofread documents with precision and teach students not only grammar and writing but how to self-edit.

I would be excited to her from you to discuss your needs in English. If you have just arrived in the US or if you have been here for a long time, I would be happy to see what your level and needs are in English and get started working with you!

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.

IELTS

I am qualified to tutor IELTS because I was trained to do so before I started teaching it with the aid of an IELTS textbook when I was teaching at the University of Duhok in Duhok, Kurdistan in northern Iraq. Having taught TOEFL preparation both in classes and privately helped me to teach IELTS. I would introduce a lesson from the text, students worked on that lesson, and then we checked their answers. I then clarified and explained any questions or items that they did not understand or on which they had made errors. I have also used online IELTS practice lessons and tests with students.
