About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica T. I graduated from UC Davis in 2002 with a dual major in Psychology and Biological Anthropology with a 3.9 GPA. As an undergraduate student, I tutored several students and earned credits as a Teachers Assistant in Biology, Primate and Human Evolution. Post-college, I worked in the research industry concentrating on animal behavior and neuroscience. I love writing, data analysis and have several peer-reviewed publications. I have mentored many graduate students and have helped them complete their dissertation work. In addition, I have presented my own work at several academic conferences. I specialize in psychology, anthropology, zoology, writing, spelling and vocabulary.

My personal style of tutoring centers around patience and explaining concepts clearly. My main goal is to work with you in a constructive, individualized way, and believe with guidance, a positive attitude and perseverance, success is possible! Personally, I have a great love of animals and simply enjoy helping others.

I have a flexible work schedule and offer make-up sessions. I am happy to travel to your home, or meet at a third party location.

I look forward to the opportunity to help you advance in your studies!
