If your student is generally struggling in school, or would like to develop proficiency in a specific academic subject, I will help them to achieve their scholastic goals!

I am available for tutoring all subjects taught in elementary and middle schools.

I am also available for tutoring high school students in English Grammar, Writing, Literature, Spanish 1 and 2, Math and ACT Preparation.

My name is Jessica. I am a mother, a published author and a graduate of the University of Minnesota. I hold a Bachelor's in Political Science with a concentration in Middle Eastern Culture, Politics and History. Additionally, I had strong elective focus on World History, World Geography, American Government, American History and International Relations. I have consistently been in the top 10% of my class, received academic scholarships and have been a Dean's List student. Additionally, I have coached high school forensics.

Prior to finishing my degree, I was employed as a travel agent and spent a few years as the producer and co-host of a nationally broadcast political talk radio show on SiriusXM. I have strong communications skills and can help with writing, speeches, presentations and almost anything you can come up with--I am most definitely a Jill of all trades.

Currently I am a graduate student in the political science department at Virginia Tech.

American History

I spent three years as producer and cohost on a political talk radio show. Part of my job was to be well versed in American History for the sake of discussion.


I am a freelance writer who is published on multiple websites. (I can provide samples, if necessary.) Additionally, I'm a stellar academic writer with a good handle on grammar. I am also well read and can help tutor literature topics.


In addition to formal college classes in geography, I started out as a travel agent and airline employee. I am well-traveled and extremely worldly.


I have strong math skills, especially for a social science major. I am able to tutor geometry and trigonometry.


I have strong math and algebra skills and can help with prealgebra. These skills are the most important because success in future classes hinge on a student having a strong prealgebra base.

Public Speaking

I coach high school forensics (public speaking) in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin.

Social Studies

Political Science major with many undergraduate electives in the social sciences including anthropology, psychology and sociology.


I coach high school forensics (speech) in St. Croix Falls, WI, which means I regularly aid high school kids in writing speeches. Categories include 4-minute speech, public address and oratory. Additionally, I spent approximately three years as producer and on-air sidekick on a nationally broadcast radio show. This experience has prepared me for speeches on the fly in addition to persuasive speech and rhetoric.


I am a published writer (on USA Today, Travels, and wiseGEEK websites) and received straight A's in all writing intensive courses at the University of Minnesota.
