About Jeanine

In high school I was in Mu Alpha Theta and tutored fellow classmates to help prepare and pass the TAKS and STAARS exams. I like to write/draw things out to better help explain the subject, but in history I learned the best way is to tell it like a story! I had great teachers in high school and some in college, they have taught me what I know and I want to help others reach the same level of interest and curiosity. I have continued to tutor in college, it is more complex and requires more studying but where there is a will, there is a way. Each student requires a different approach, I like to show students the same idea in various forms so that each type of learning can be approached. Once the idea is taught then the students can be asked to complete questions about the subject, demonstrating the knowledge. However, I believe the ultimate and final test is to have the student be able to explain the idea to someone else. This shows the different levels of learning, understanding and comprehension and causes retention of the information. I do not like conventional methods: just reading and reciting a textbook. I prefer to draw things out on a whiteboard, play memory games, build your own guide, find new way to learn, play active games to help recognize ideas, in science I like simple experiments to explain ideas. Did you know you can build your own lava lamp with water, vegetable oil, food dye and Alka-Seltzer?! I like to say history is more of a bed time story than a class you can snooze through. There are different ways of looking at things and school does not have to be boring, I like to find the fun side of it and learn from it.

On a personal side, I currently work in Dr. Matthew Gdovin's cancer research laboratory and have gained skills and practice in explaining ideas to others. It is my job in the lab and as a tutor to relay information in various forms, different learning avenues provide opportunity for growth and learning. I have previously worked with middle school, high school, and college students- this is my experience level, not my limitations.

I have helped fellow students pass state exams (TAKS, STAARS) and become proficient in various subjects pertinent to the class. Math is a pyramid type subject, if you do not build a strong foundation there will be struggles, I want to help build this foundation. I have A's in my high school math, science and history classes.

Please feel free to contact me to set up a session or just ask questions, I am available most days and can meet you! You may find that learning can be fun and interesting!

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.

Prealgebra

I have been certified in multiple areas of math, including Prealgebra.

Knowledgable and fun tutor

My grandson is excited to see Jeanine. She makes math fun for him and best of all he's interested in learning. He comes home and shows off what he's learned. Is this the same kid? Lol
