About Jean

I have a degree in Elementary Education, with a minor in Reading. I have a lifetime Texas Teaching certificate, and a new certificate Core Subjects EC-6. I have taught hundreds of children how to read over the years. I have tutored second through eleventh grade. I have scored the STAAR test for Pearson. I most recently passed the Core Subjects test for EC-6. I love to read and feel this is my greatest strength as a teacher and tutor. I love to help students unlock their potential, and see the light in their eyes when they "get it". My feeling is that if you can read, you can learn any other subject.

I am an avid reader, and for me, grammar, vocabulary and understanding literature come very naturally to me. There is so much to be inferred while reading. When you teach someone how to see it, understanding literature becomes so much easier. It's sort of absorbing the book, rather than reading it on the surface. I am good at making things relevant to young people, so reading becomes more interesting.

I am mature and easy to talk to. I have helped so many students over the years. We all struggle with something, and we all have our strengths, too. I can help you with the areas that you are struggling with. I am very patient and empathetic. I have taught for so many years that I have learned many ways to help you become a more successful student.

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.

Common Core

I am a highly qualified teacher in the Core Subjects. I hold a lifetime Texas Teacher's Certificate which certifies me to teach grades 1-8. I hold a renewable Teaching Certificate for Core Subjects grades EC-6. I was granted the Core Subjects certificate after passing all subjects on the Texas Core Subjects 291 test.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a degreed teacher. I have a lifetime Texas Teaching certificate, and a new certificate Core Subjects EC-6. I have years of teaching experience. I know how to encourage children to really engage in learning.

Phonics

My minor is in Reading. I have tutored Reading up to the eleventh grade. I have taught Reading in grades 1, 2 and 4. Reading is about establishing basic skills and then building upon those skills. Once you have taught or reinforced those skills, it is about honing those skills to become a more successful reader.
