About Jean


Bio

I recently retired from my teaching position at a private high school in south Florida and have relocated to join my family. However, I love teaching and in particular teaching mathematics. So, I would like to continue working with students. I did some tutoring in the past and loved the one-on-one approach and the ability to meet individual student needs. Thus, I am interested in continuing to help students achieve their academic goals by tutoring students once again.

I recently retired from my teaching position at a private high school in south Florida and have relocated to join my family. However, I love teaching and in particular teaching mathematics. So, I would like to continue working with students. I did some tutoring in the past and loved the one-on-one approach and the ability to meet individual student needs. Thus, I am interested in continuing to help students achieve their academic goals by tutoring students once again.
I love teaching and helping students to see and to understand the mathematics. I believe that in order for a student to truly understand mathematics, the student must be engaged in his/her learning. While I have set up a lesson with learning goals for the student, I do allow the student to drive the lesson. I encourage the student to ask questions and to answer questions that I ask, and to solve problems either the student or I propose. If I see that a student is struggling, I will ask leading questions to help the student solve the problem and provide varying degrees of difficulty in the problems I present, starting with a problem I believe the student would be able to successfully solve and working towards having the student solve more complex problems.

During the last thirty four years of teaching, I have taught the following math classes: Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, Pre-calculus, and AB and BC Calculus. I co-wrote the Algebra 2 book that the last school I taught at is currently using. The students that I taught in my Advanced Placement Calculus classes over the past fifteen years have consistently averaged a score of 4.6 on a 5 point scale. I hold a Bachelor's of Science degree in mathematics.

I want to help students learn, to succeed at, and to appreciate mathematics. No questions are too small! Whether I can help you through a homework assignment, to prepare for an assessment, or to explain a concept, please know that I am available, willing, and able to help you achieve the results you are interested in achieving. Feel free to contact me to ask me a question or to schedule a lesson.

Trigonometry

I have taught a Pre-calculus Honors course for the past twenty years. As a part of this course, I taught a full semester of trigonometry. The topics included the trigonometric values of the special angles, proving trigonometric identities, graphing the trigonometric functions, sinusoidal functions, applications of the Law of Sines and Law of Cosines, polar points and graphs, and DeMoivre's Theorem.

Amazing Algebra 2 tutor

Ms. Jean is an excellent tutor. Because of her, my son has been able to raise his algebra 2 grade from a C to a B in just 4 weeks. She wrote a textbook that is being used by the school my son goes to.
