Jeanne has an extensive background in art with national and international shows of her art and both lectures and classes through colleges and museums as well as schools and private tutoring at all age levels. She brings a tactile and creative bend to successfully guide students to problem solving skills in all their subjects. Jeanne starts with determining a student’s current knowledge in an area and breaks down mastery of a subject in a step by step method that is enjoyable and successful. She incorporates games and handcrafts into an active student learning process. Although Jeanne believes that education can be fun, proficiency is necessary to produce competence. That means students must learn vocabulary and math and language facts and methods. This requires drills and repetition. For example, she has found much success using phonics to develop reading skills. Jeanne has found great satisfaction in leading students that are behind in their communication and math skills into major jumps in achievement.
