About Jeb

I'm a married, 55 year old French-American who's recently returned to the US after living 23 years in Paris. Born in the US, both my parents were teachers, and I've always loved working with students. I'm a communications consultant with my own company, allowing me to split my time between my business and teaching.
I've taught at the high school level (mini-courses at my former prep school) & colleges (part-time teaching Marketing & Digital Studies in several MBA programs) in the US and in France, and I've raised two boys, both of whom are attending top universities in France

I have a passion for social studies, history, geography, business studies, and political science. I've managed to become fluent in French despite having very little natural talent for languages, so if you're having a tough time with your French, I know what you're going through! We can get you going in conversational French by supplementing book learning with discussing subjects you're really interested in, and making it fun.

I'm also a musician, and can work with starting-level and novice guitar players, concentrating on learning chord progressions, building confidence for accompanying singers, and jamming with friends. We'll practice on songs you like & want to learn to play.

Message to potential students - sure, I want to help you do better in school. But I also want you to discover how great it feels to learn something for yourself, gaining confidence in your own ability to work through challenges, to learn research skills so you know where to go to find out what you're curious about, and to appreciate your unique gifts and character.

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.

English

Having earned an MBA from the top international business school in the US (US News & World Report), and made a career in international marketing, I have used the quality of my writing professionally as a copywriter, editor, and creator of hundreds of corporate presentations. Working in the communications office at Alcatel, I proofread and edited hundreds of business and technical articles before submission for publication. As a teacher in 3 top French MBA programs, I was called on to teach in both French and English, and received top 10% evaluations from my students.

French

I lived in France from 1990 to 2013. In 1995 I earned French (dual US) citizenship, for which qualifications include mastery of the language. I also raised my two sons there. For 23 years I worked and taught using French, and am considered completely fluent by my French friends, including having an excellent understanding of the French culture.

Guitar

I have been playing guitar for nearly 50 years, both acoustic and electric. I have performed solo and in groups, in genres from classical to jazz, blues, and rock. I am best suited to teaching beginners and intermediate level students.

Marketing

I have an MBA in international marketing from Thunderbird, one of the top graduate schools in the US. My career in the US and in France for 23 years has been built on these skills. I have taught marketing courses at the graduate level for two French MBA programs.
