All of Jessica’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about Jessica’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Algebra 1

While I was a Mechanical Engineering student at University of California, San Diego, I worked as an AVID tutor at San Dieguito Academy. I spent one semester tutoring in an Algebra I class, assisting the teacher, helping students with in-class assignments and answering questions.

Algebra 2

As a tutor, I strive for 2 main goals with my students. First, I want to encourage a deeper level of understanding of concepts so that rote memorization is no longer needed. As we strive for deeper understanding in our lessons, I work towards my second goal which is to teach students how to teach themselves. This is especially important so that they are not solely reliant upon the teacher for guiding them through the material.

Ear Training

I studied Ear Training intensively in private lessons throughout high school. When I was admitted to Georgia State University, I placed into the fourth semester of Aural Skills and earned an A in the course. I am comfortable with interval and chord recognition, rhythmic and melodic dictation, and sight singing.

Music Theory

I have completed 4 semesters of college level music theory, in addition to an advanced form analysis course. I have several side projects as well that involve analyzing sonata form in both 19th and 20th century compositions.

Piano

I am a current Piano Performance student at Georgia State University studying on one of their largest scholarships. I have been playing the piano for over 25 years, served in the Marine Corps as a pianist from 2004 - 2008 and was selected as the Marine Corps Musician of the Year in 2006. I have been teaching privately for over 3 years and have had between 1 and 25 students at any given time.

Sight Singing

I studied Sight Singing intensively in private lessons throughout high school with a "movable Do" system. When I was admitted to Georgia State University, I placed into the fourth semester of Aural Skills and earned an A in the course. I am comfortable with interval and chord recognition, rhythmic and melodic dictation, and sight singing.

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
