A certified TESOL/ESL teacher since 2011, I have 10+ years experience as a tutor/teacher to young adults and adults in France and Canada. My speciality is "English for Specific Purposes." I will custom design a course for you based on your particular goals: business, professional or academic advancement, or fluency for daily life; you decide your priorities. My services include preparation for English language proficiency examinations, as well as editing/proofreading documents. With a few exceptions, all class materials are supplied. A discount of up to 8% is possible with a commitment to 10 lessons. The first class is free. I tutor students 16 years of age and up, and have experience teaching people from many linguistic backgrounds, including: French, Mexican, Iraqi, Korean, Japanese, Russian, German, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, Italian and others.
University Degree, BA in English from University of Illinois. Later, TESOL Certificate from Vancouver Community College.
Ten years experience as a private English language coach:
Six years in France where I taught fluency in English at IPSA Toulouse, an aeronautical engineering college.
Five years coaching intermediate and advanced level students here in Canada with a focus on professional and career advancement
Volunteered as an English language tutor for new Canadians with the Cowichan Intercultural Society
My approach is centred on the student. After a general levels and pronunciation assessment, I work with the student to begin with the most immediate priorities. We take it from there. If the student is willing to make a longterm commitment, I will develop a longterm lesson plan strategy for that student.
My time is flexible; I can adapt our lesson time to your schedule.
Until the Covid-19 crisis is over, I'm meeting with my students online only, but with the understanding that later we may switch to in-person classes if the student would prefer it.
The location of classes is negotiable.
Jeanette is an excellent teacher who helped me greatly with my English for both business and personal situations. She customized the classes that fit my needs and she really spends time preparing before each lesson. I appreciate her knowledge and would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to improve their English skills.
Jeanette is extremely professional and prepared. She is so nice and friendly. She worked hard to help me with my English--building a course that was specific to my needs. Working with Jeanette never felt like a class--our time together was always very interesting. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their English.
I am an engineer with an executive role. I moved to Canada last year and I decided to improve my English to be more efficient in my meetings (I'm doing Zoom calls all day). Jeanette is an excellent coach: she set up a custom training program that fits my specific needs: better phonology, better time use and better clarity in my writing. We combined theoretical lessons and exercises / talk improvisation to ensure I was improving. What I really appreciate is Jeanette’s adaptability to what I need for my daily work. I often shared some presentations and emails from my work in advance, and she was correcting me and preparing the next lesson based on these real life examples. I am now more confident with my English and I am more productive at work. I highly recommend Jeanette.
I have had some amazing learning experiences with Jeanette. Her classes are calm and chill, while she guides me through the difficulties I had. Overall, she is an amazing English Tutor that I would totally recommend.
I met Jeanette when I lost my confidence in my English after moving to Canada. English used by native speakers was different from English that I used to use with non-English native speakers at work and it made me timid and demotivated. At that time I was unsure if I was a right person to work here. Jeneatte's way of teaching English was different from other teachers in my home country. She was good at identifying what I needed to improve and she listened to my needs very carefully. She is a very passionate and professional teacher. Also, she is a very kind and nice person. The thing that I like most is her effort to prepare every class. She always prepares materials only for me and she spends a lot of time searching topics/articles that are relevant to my job or will be useful for me. I've taken about 40 classes so far and I got back my confidence. I've never been bored of her class over one year. I highly recommend her!
I took English class with Jeanette and it was a really good time. Jeanette is a very patient and friendly teacher. I really had a good time during classes. She is a very organized teacher and every class she is always ready. I totally recommend Jeannette as a tutor.
I took English class with Jeanette and will continue after an practice break. Jeanette is a very serious but friendly tutor also. I really had a good time during classes. My favorite one is the class with british tea time. We laught so much during courses. It was just amazing. As I am high level politician from my country, professor at university, she let me asked questions and explained my ideas and my opinion. She was listen and correct me with delicatess in regard of pronounciation and grammar which was our focus. I recommend my tutor and become friend Jeanette if you want to learn English in different way. See you soon dear Jeanette!
It was a great challenge for me to speak english and to be graduated from the TOEIC. Jeanette gave me all the assets to succeed. TOEIC : 875 /990 ! Thanks to Jeannette I was able to enroll in a business school and change my future! She is really kind and patient and a really interesting person. I recommend you Jeanette if you want to learn english!
I took English classes with Jeanette before taking an exam (TOEIC) and before going to Australia. It was for me very rewarding, and it helped me a lot to get ready ! As I am French, I had some difficulties with pronunciation and we focused on my weaknesses. Jeanette is a very attentive teacher, she always took in consideration my needs and my wishes. She prepared all the lessons rigorously and supplied all class materials. She made every classes sound different by bringing new topics which were very interesting and relevant. I enjoyed my classes a lot and I really had good time learning English ! I would definitely recommend.
