About Jessica


Bio

“It is not so much tutoring that the mind needs, but clearer recognition and better use of what it already knows.” I love this quote, it really embodies my style of teaching and tutoring. I try to avoid reiterating an idea that an individual doesn’t fully understand. Instead, I prefer to give a new point of view, a new way to understand the idea, a clearer picture of it.

I have tutored before, I tutored second graders in reading; recently though, I have been teaching. I realized that tutoring has a certain appeal because working one-on-one with an individual really allows for more exploration in explaining ideas; it has the ability to really find the exact method to teach a person exactly how they need to be taught.
Tutoring is a great resource, and I love the ability to help students when they need it. The best moment for me is when the tutor and student figure out together what works for the student. It’s a moment of hope (I know it sounds corny) because that student feels understood and together the student and tutor know what works and they can continue on to success.

In May I graduated from Whittier College with my degree in Art and Art History. I also took courses covering education, child development and social work. Since graduating, I have been working for a non-profit organization as an art teacher; I travel around Los Angeles to a variety of schools and implement an art program after school.

My schedule is flexible, I look forward to hearing from you!

Drawing

I have studied art for years, and throughout those years I learned that no matter what type of art it is (painting, sculpture, graphic, etc.) it all comes back to drawing. Drawing is the most basic foundation of art and it is extremely important. I would begin by establishing form (shapes), then basic objects (fruit, mugs, flowers, etc.), still life, the human form, and this would lead to an individual being able to draw things from reference pictures and imagination.
