About Jessica

I can't believe that I am finishing up my second year as a full-time private academic tutor. I am constantly reminded why I love teaching as a private one-on-one academic tutor/teacher. My job allows me to develop and grow as an educator. As I develop and grow, I see the results in my students and their successes. I tutor ages 2-70 across all the major subjects. It makes me smile as I review and teach concepts, all the little Ah-Ha moments I experience as I fill in the gaps in my own knowledge. It inspires me as my depth of and appreciation for knowledge and learning grows with my student's knowledge.

Although I tutor all of the major subjects, my focus is tutoring students with an emphasis in STEM education including mathematics, science, and technical education. I have taught post-secondary drafting-design and secondary mathematics. I have experience substitute teaching all grade levels. I have private tutored elementary, secondary, and post-secondary science, mathematics, and computer-aided drafting. I also have significant experience tutoring GED prep, SAT/ACT prep, Pre-K, and reading/writing/grammar fundamentals. Outside of tutoring, I am writing a series of learning books for 2-8 year old children.

My educational philosophy is, Improvise, adapt, overcome, have fun. Supporting and teaching success-based values, attitudes, responses, and problem solving to everyday challenges together. I believe that it is one thing to be smart and knowledgeable in a subject matter. It is a whole other thing to be able to teach that subject matter in a simple and understandable manner and format. Customer satisfaction is my top priority!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ACT Math

All the students that I have helped prepare for the ACT/SAT have been successful in increasing their scores.

AutoCAD

I have a Masters of Architecture where I learned AutoCAD. I used AutoCAD while working for architecture/engineering firms for six years. I taught AutoCAD for a private university.
