About Jessica

"I can't believe it has been a year since I started the full-time private academic tutoring business! This morning I was reminded why I love teaching as a private one-on-one academic tutor/teacher.

One of my biggest issues teaching in public education was that I spent to much of my time baby sitting and trying to convince those that did not want to be taught the value of learning. I rarely had the time or opportunity to refine my craft to become a better educator. It was an incredibly frustrating and soul crushing experience.

My job now 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.

Finally, it re-affirms my decision to home school and teach my children when that day comes. I know through this experience, I have the knowledge, ability, and resources to provide them with the best education that will allow them to achieve their own goals and dreams like their mom. Having my own small business has not always been easy. But, it has absolutely been worth taking the risk and seeing it through, because I get to experience days like today." - 02/01/2017

My educational philosophy is, Improvise, adapt, overcome, have fun. Supporting and teaching success-based values, attitudes, responses, and problem solving to everyday challenges together.

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 and design and secondary mathematics. I have private tutored secondary and post-secondary science, mathematics, and computer-aided drafting.

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!

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
