About Jeanne

My first love is teaching writing because I love teaching students to find their voice and express who they are as they come to realize that they have hidden talents that they just need to discover within themselves. English isn't all about rules, it's about learning who you are, what you believe, and how to search your own soul to begin to learn self love, self respect, and independence of thought. Writing is taking a blank page and painting any kind of world you want to create on paper and learning the art of getting the "A" continuously throughout your academic career by understanding how you will be graded.

Not only will I teach you how to "Ace your Exams," but I will teach you how to write impressive essays that will be good enough to publish. Being an English major has changed my life.

I've traveled all over the world, to Italy, Greece, England, Germany, Mexico, Turkey, and numerous other places. I've written directed, and acted in plays, Mystery theaters, and skits all over the world because so my abilities in English. I've written seven books on English and TOEFL TRICKS AND TOOLS, which are the essentials of passing every exam in high schools and universities. I've been trained by the College Board and Pearson as an essay scorer for SAT exams, and I know how to help you score high.

I will evaluate every student's abilities and create lessons to improve your strengths and weaknesses to help you excel in every area of English. I've also been specially trained to help students with a variety of learning differences and can help you understand the best times to study and how to study to maximize your potential.

My students averaged 100 on TOEFL exams and I've written several books on ESL and exam techniques that are highly successful. I taught all ages from grade school to universities, including Cal State Los Angeles, Cal State Northridge, Kadir Has university in Istanbul, and top officials in Turkey including the Cheif Justice, three Supreme Court Judges, the President of Turkey's pilot, secretary, and top military officials, They heard about me and sought me out because of my reputation as an English instructor.

In addition, SAT written exams are a piece of cake once I teach you the secrets they are looking for in your exams. Grammar is simple, and I have fun ways of helping you remember forever. In addition, I will teach you simple, easy tricks to expand your vocabulary quickly and score high on the vocabulary in both SAT's and TOEFL exams, as well as college entrance exams.

Not only can I help you in all aspects of English, including literature, writing, grammar, and creative writing, but I can also assist anyone who is applying for college, college entrance exams for writing, and grants. At College of the Canyons and Antelope Valley College, I assisted students who were applying to get into universities and who needed scholarships. I can help you with all your needs from A-Z for all groups, all ages, and all learning differences. I also received a "Service to the College Award" from College of the Canyons due to my effortsin ESL, English, and Learning Differeneced students as well as students with Acquired brain injuries.

If you are serious about success, call me!~ It will be a life changing experience. My students are highly successful, and you will be too. The road to success is only a phone call away!~

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.

Sign Language

I taught ASL for two years in Texas High School and Texas Junior High School in Texarkana, Texas. In addition, I used to interpret and use ASL for my students who are learning English as a Second Language. At church, I do ASL to songs on occasion and assist with Deaf members when needed.

Turkish

I lived in Turkey for seven years, and my husband's family only speaks Turkish. I've been speaking Turkish for several years, and can teach speaking only. In addition, I know the grammar structure because it assisted me in helping my students learn English as well.
