About Jessica

I am a recent graduate from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Linguistics and a love for teaching some of my favorite subjects! Grammar, writing, foreign languages and science have always been my best subjects throughout my academic career. In the past, I have worked with the Scottish Rite Brain Gym teaching children how to operate a language improving software called FastForward as well as tutored peers in English and science subjects.

I am currently finishing up a few classes before applying for a PhD in Audiology. Until then, I would be happy to help you with your tutoring needs in any way I can. I have no problem explaining things as many times as it takes and in as many different, creative ways needed.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I would love to help you with your English! I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Linguistics, received A grades in all of my English classes, and scored a perfect score on the SAT English/Writing section. I am currently applying towards a PhD.

Proofreading

Throughout my academic career, I was always one of those few, strange people in my English classes that always looked forward to a new grammar or writing lesson. Here are some facts that I hope may help you choose me to be your next English tutor!

- I received a perfect score on the English writing/grammar section of the SAT in 2012.
- I studied Latin for 5 years and scored above average on the National Latin Exam 3 years in a row. (Because a large portion of English words used today derived from the Latin, studying the language can be a very useful tool to improve English and grammar skills.)
- I have received an A grade in every English writing class I have taken in college (UC Santa Barbara).

-With my degree being in Linguistics, I was able to take several classes which analyzed semantics, discourse, and syntax on a deeper scope.
-Finally, because this is a subject I truly love, I will be happy to help you so that you may reach your English goals!

Writing

I graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Linguistics, received A grades in all of my English classes, and scored a perfect score on the SAT English/Writing section. I have scored above average on the National Latin Exam 2 years in a row and can also speak and write in Hindi and Punjabi.

Throughout college, I have tutored children with difficulty with speech using a facilitation software, FastForward.
