About Jessica


Bio

For 4 years (2011-2014, 2016-2017), 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.

For 4 years (2011-2014, 2016-2017), 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.

I'm available 3 to 8 pm Saturday and 2 to 8 pm Sunday. In-person appointments take place at the public library or bookstore/coffee shop of the client's choice.

ACT Prep

Jessica has worked with my daughter with ACT prep. She is very patient and kind and seems to explain things to my daughter in an interesting way! She has also helped her with writing assignments in the past and seems to help motivate her.

Great teacher

Jessica was really helpful and patient. She made sure that I understood each problem in the quantitative section of the GRE that we reviewed. I feel more prepared now.

Patient and Kind

I am a parent of a student who has in 2 lessons brought his math grade up 2 letter grades. I am pleased with her patient attitude, and knowledge. The atmosphere alone is well worth using her. My son is 10 and smiles and says he enjoys her compassionate way of teaching, and ability to teach him many things in different ways. For a 10 year old to express that I say it's a win win situation. Thanks, Jessica!
