About Jessica

For 3 years (2011-2014), I taught English to college freshmen as well as tutored college students in English. I continue tutoring individuals of various ages today. While my undergraduate and graduate education focused on English, I also have a great love for basic math and algebra. Also, I have familiarity with the ACT and an ever-increasing familiarity with the Revised GRE, the latter being an exam that I last took in August 2016 and on which I received an acceptable score. While my strongest subject is English, my primary method of tutoring is the same for any subject/exam: practice, practice, practice. Of course, I first show students how a given problem needs to be completed. After that, however, I like to give students a chance to grasp the concept on their own. Ultimately, I believe in having students practice while I act as support when needed. After all, as I have learned in my educational experience, trial by error is often the best teacher.

Currently available as early as 7:00 pm on Mondays, 7:30 pm on Thursdays, 5 pm on Fridays; and at 9 am, 10 am, and 4 pm on Saturdays. In-person appointments take place at the public library of the client's choice.

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

English

I have bachelor's and master's degrees in English. Also, I taught English Composition to college freshmen for 3 years.

I have been studying the exam closely for a while and have even tutored others in the subject.
