About Jean

My name is Jean, and I have tutored math and science for 28 years at Community College of Allegheny County, La Roche College and independently. I majored in physics in college with coursework in mathematics. I have helped people with SAT and GRE preparation. I have also taught astronomy for 23 years. I love teaching and learning.

My tutoring style is to assist the student in coming to an understanding of the subject. I have a caring, compassionate nature and am patient and gentle with students. Sometimes I show an example, other times I guide the student to the answer or offer an explanation. I try not to give the student the answer, but help him or her to arrive at it, thereby building confidence.

I am willing to travel, and respectfully request an hour advance notice if you need to cancel.

Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to working math and science 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.

Astronomy

I taught at the local Planetarium for about 20 years. I also worked at the Observatory of our local Science Center for the same 20 years. My Bachelor's degree is in Physics with the Astronomy option. I am enthusiastic about helping people understand Astronomy and the night sky or how to use a telescope.
