About Jessica

Hey there! I am a 28 year old recent grad that has lived in southern California for the past two years. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree from Kaplan University just last summer. I am not immune to the plight of the student, I know all too well just how difficult it can be juggling between school, work, and having anything that somewhat resembles a social life.

I began tutoring during my junior college days with students struggling with the subject of English, assisting them through the process of understanding the prompts for essays, creating the outline all the way to proofreading to ensure a properly constructed paper. I’ve often tutored my fellow students with courses that challenged them while attending college for my Bachelor's, also. Specifically, subjects that dealt with general education such as English and the ones related to my major. I’ve tutored students in how to create a website from scratch using HTML and CSS, create and edit original images in Photoshop, along with using Microsoft Office productively. Additionally, I’ve been approached by non-traditional students and adults interested in learning new computer skills and have mentored them as well.

My qualifications include my B.A. in Information Technology, which has to deal with the development, implementation and maintenance of both hardware and software. I have been able to take courses and study in depth on almost all things computer related. I design websites freelance, as well as create logos and other various graphical images for clients. Writing was a major part of earning my degree and with my added experience as an English tutor, I feel confident that I can help in increasing a student’s confidence and ability to compose papers that they feel proud to have written.

As for my instructional style, based on the student’s specific needs and background, I will break down the task at hand with a specific end goal in mind. Taking each obstacle as a stepping stone to the finish line all the while supporting the student as they work to accomplish what they have set out to do. Expect a very supportive and patient tutor, I want to take the time you need to really learn, to help on future endeavors with the knowledge you have gained, not just simply finish the assignment.

Please contact me if you feel I am a good fit your tutoring needs. I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Microsoft Windows

Some of my courses were explicitly for understanding how to garner the most productivity as possible out of Microsoft Windows as well as troubleshoot and maintain Windows operating systems. IT133: File Management, Desktop Administration, and IT190: Foundations in Information Technology all center around Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Web Design

I graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology from Kaplan University. Some of my courses there included IT117: Introduction to Web Design, IT460: System Analysis and Design, and IT499: Capstone Web Development. Most of these related courses involved design web sites from scratch. Additionally, I freelance web design as well as offer graphic design services.
