About Jeaneen

Hello,
My name is Jeaneen!
I have over 20 years experience working with students in the general education setting Pre-K thru 5th grade and individuals with special needs birth to adult. I have a BA in Elementary Education and MA in Special Education (Multi-Categorical). My area of expertise is determining what instructional strategies work for your child and using those strategies to help your child succeed academically. I worked in the public education setting for two decades. I know what test formats they use. I know why common core (especially math) is confusing to some kids. I know how teacher's assess students reading and comprehension using Fountas & Pinnell's leveled books. If my tutoring sessions help your child perform better in school then I know I've done my job.

Thank you for your consideration

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Aspergers

In 1995, an individual with Asperger's was placed in my class. At that time, I had no idea that this child would change my life. Given the unique characteristics of an Aspie, I received intensive training from CARD (Center of Autism and Related Disorders in Tampa, FL) and was mentored by Dr. Kevin Murdock. He was a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and Professor at USF. His training included Applied Behavior Analysis, collecting data, monitoring progress, and making changes to instructional procedures based on data. I continued to work with individuals on the spectrum throughout my 22 years in the public schools as a teacher, behavior specialist, and program consultant.

Autism

My area of expertise! I have worked with individuals on the spectrum for 18 years. I am eligible to sit for the BCBA Exam. I am certified in Applied Verbal Behavior. AVB is using the principles of applied behavior analysis to teach non-verbal individuals to make sounds and then gradually (trial after trial) shape the sounds into words. I currently work with families that need assistance with language acquisition, behavioral, sensory, and academic related needs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BA in Elementary Education and a MA in Special Education. I am certified in teaching individuals with intellectual, behavioral, and learning disabilities. My teaching certificate is valid until June 30, 2019.

Elementary Math

I've been a certified Elementary Education Teacher for over 20 years and tutoring individuals with special needs for the last 5 years. These roles required daily math instruction. I find the Touchpoint Math Method extremely helpful in helping my clients reach their goals.

Phonics

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education (K-6th). I took several courses in reading, including how to help teach reading to individuals with special needs (Corrective Reading). As a teacher, I have received training in Fountas & Pinnell and running records.

Special Needs

I received my Master's in Multi-Categorical in 2001. Therefore, I am certified in Specific Learning or Learning, Emotional, and Intellectual Disability. I received a passing score on the PRAXIS; therefore, I am considered a "Highly Qualified" special needs teacher.

Speech

I was selected to attend a week-long (40 hours) conference on Applied Verbal Behavior. AVB is used to teach students to talk by breaking speech down to its smallest component (morpheme). A child is shown a reinforcer (cookie) and the child says, "c." After "c" is used consistently by the child you raise the bar to "co" and then continue to shape the word approximations until the child says, "cookie."

Best tutor we've ever had!!! — We can't say enough wonderful things about Ms. Jeaneen! We've tried multiple tutors within our school system and privately, by far Jeaneen is the best. She's used various comprehension strategies to improve our daughter's connection to the material while also expanding her vocabulary. The positive reinforcement that my daughter receives has also improved her self confidence and overall desire to r ...
