About Jessica

Recent graduate holding a BA in Child & Adolescent Psychology with a 3.3 GPA as well as a lifetime membership to PsiChi and Sigma Alpha Pi honor societies. I graduated from my AS program in Criminal Justice with a 3.25 and maintain an A/B average. I feel most confident with tutoring English, Religion, Criminal Studies, Psychology and K-12. I am comfortable with children with disabilities, ADD/ADHD, Autism and Asperger's. I especially work well with those on the Autism spectrum as I have two family members who fall on the spectrum. I am patient, kind and willing to work with a student to cater study habits to their needs. I currently work as a special education instructional assistant through a local school district. I also spent time over the summer learning new skills and techniques to assist children with social and behavioral issues as a summer psycho-therapeutic day camp support staff.

I would like to work in Contra Costa County between the cities of Martinez, Pleasant Hill, Concord, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Moraga and Lafayette. I will travel if necessary; we can discuss the arrangements further. I prefer to work at the student's home in a quiet and undisturbed room, library or book store. Pets do not bother me, but they can often be a distraction. I simply ask that pets be placed somewhere not to disturb us.

If I sound like a good fit for you and your child please send me a message. I look forward to speaking with you more!

Approved subjects

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