I love working with ESL students! I have been teaching and tutoring in ESL for over 27 years, both here in the U.S. and overseas. As for education, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Inter-Cultural Relations, a California Teaching credential for English with a Supplement in TESOL, and a Master’s degree in TESOL. I have taught beginning to advanced students in all ESL subjects such as Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, Pronunciation, and Grammar from high school to adult and especially college levels. I have also done quite a bit of tutoring of both native and non-native English-speakers in Writing and Grammar. Finally, I am experienced in using Zoom for teaching.

I enjoy getting to know every person individually and helping them advance in their English ability in order to succeed in their goals. I love seeing a student finally understand something and be able to use it effectively. The “ah-ha!” and the smile on his or her face is worth it all!

    Jean helped my sons reading comprehension and writing tutoring for over half year. She recommended the materials for our specific needs, and was very well prepared for each lesson. Her sessions helped my son improve his both reading and writing skills, thanks Jean!

    I have to say that I liked working with Jean as a tutor when I was her student at Sacramento City College for many reasons. First of all, she never gave me a grade for free. In fact, I had to rewrite my essays several times in order to improve not only my grade but my abilities as a writer. Second, I really admired how Jean always had a huge smile on her face when she got to the classroom. Third, I will never forget how understanding, flexible and supportive she was when I struggled with some writing assignments due to personal difficulties. Last but not the least, beyond being my tutor Jean was an active listener, always ready to facilitate and guide me through the available resources that were in Sacramento City College to address my needs.

    I am so thankful for what she does in the sessions. It has been a great experience! Her lessons are engaging, useful, and she is very patient and supportive with me. She is always on time and at the same time very flexible about our schedules. She provides both writing and grammar to me every session based on my need. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning English.

    Jean was my grammar tutor, and I was also in her grammar, listening, and speaking classes at college. She helped me truly learn the English language and allowed me to be one step closer to being fluent. I owe it all to her, and I am thankful for everything she has taught me.

    Jean is a very, very good teacher. When I studied with her, I got a good foundation in grammar. She could always find good materials to put together for me. I like Jean as a teacher (tutor) because she is always attentive to my work and always helpful.

    Frequently asked questions

    I always talk with students to get to know them a little bit first. Then I find out what they want to work on and propose a program that will fit their goals. For example, if they want to work on writing, I give them a topic to write on for the next session so I can see any weaknesses or areas they need work. Then we talk about their mistakes and possible ways to correct them, including more accurate vocabulary. Lastly, I ask them if our session has been helpful, and recommend the area for us to focus on the next time.

    I have a BA in Intercultural Relations and a CA Teaching Credential for grades K - 12.  I also have a Master's degree in Teaching ESL. 

    I offer a free consultation, and then each one hour lesson after that is $30.

    I have over 27 years of teaching experience, including junior high, high school, college, and adult, with additional experience teaching English overseas. I have tutored students from grades K - 12 in numerous subjects, and I am currently home schooling my own children in 1st - 12th grades. I have recently tutored students from elementary to adult.
