Hi, I'm Jessica. I am currently an ESL instructor at Miramar College, MiraCosta College, and UC San Diego, where I teach reading, writing, grammar, conversation, and mechanics and spelling to international students at all levels. I have taught and tutored many different levels and academic subjects: writing, reading, math, science, research skills, debate, etc., in addition to academic and informal ESL. I've tutored children as young as kindergarten and adult students as well. I have an M.A. in Linguistics and Teaching ESL from San Diego State University, where I also worked as an ESL instructor. I have an undergraduate degree from UCLA, where I tutored students in writing and taught ESL classes for international students. I love to tutor because I believe the one-on-one interaction with a student is the best way for the teacher and student to become comfortable with each other, which is when real learning takes place.
Some information about my policies:
1- I tutor any student of any age. All education levels, ethnicities, and backgrounds are welcome.
2- If the student is a child, an adult (preferably a parent) must be present at the tutoring session as well.
3- Tutoring takes place at the student’s home or in a public place such as a coffee shop or library. I will travel 10 miles from 92103 (my home) or UCSD (if it works with my schedule). If we meet outside of that area, I will charge for one-way extra driving time.
4- If you must cancel a session, please inform me by phone, text message, or e-mail at least 10 hours before the scheduled session. If you cancel within 10 hours of a scheduled session, the late cancellation fee is half of the session time.
5- If I must cancel or reschedule, I will tutor 30 minutes of the next session for free.
