About Jesse


Bio

Hello, my name is Jesse! I am a graduate of the University of San Diego where I received my B.A. in English. As an undergrad, I had the good fortune to study abroad in Oxford, England. It was there that I had one of my most significant educational experiences while studying poetry with Dr. Robert Osborn. It became clear to me that education was not only important in my life, but it was truly enjoyable, it was magical. Dr. Osborn inspired me to do what he did--to broaden the minds of you...

Hello, my name is Jesse! I am a graduate of the University of San Diego where I received my B.A. in English. As an undergrad, I had the good fortune to study abroad in Oxford, England. It was there that I had one of my most significant educational experiences while studying poetry with Dr. Robert Osborn. It became clear to me that education was not only important in my life, but it was truly enjoyable, it was magical. Dr. Osborn inspired me to do what he did--to broaden the minds of young people and to influence them in a meaningful way. And even today, I still reflect on my time in the classroom with Dr. Osborn as I tutor my own students. I do everything in my power to make our sessions both educational and entertaining. I firmly believe that this combination is the key to successful scholastic interaction.

I have significant experience in teaching test preparation (SAT-Verbal MC and Essay, ACT-English and Reading MC and Essay, PSAT-Verbal MC, and GED-All Sections). I focus on a blend of skill and strategy-based instruction in this area. I also specialize in aiding students in the creation of unique and effective College Application Essays as well as College Athletics Recruitment Letters. In addition, I am a knowledgeable English instructor. I tutor English and AP English students and teach basic writing instruction (both academic and creative). Furthermore, I have worked with countless students in developing Study Skills. I find that when my students, their parents, their classroom teachers (when applicable), and I have established clear communication and expectations, there is no limit as to what my students can achieve.

After completing my undergraduate studies, I worked as a writer (both technical and freelance). I also have over a decade working with students of all ages. I have worked as an English and GED Instructor with the SDUHSD, as a Self-Employed Private Tutor (English, Test Preparation, and College Application Essay Creation), as a Director of the Tutoring Club, LLC in Encinitas, CA, and as a SAT/ACT Reading/Writing Instructor and College Essay Editing Partner at Hamilton College Consulting in San Diego, CA. I currently reside in Clairemont with my wife Rose and our puppy Rudy. I am so blessed to do the things I am most passionate about professionally--to work as a freelance writer/author and to guide young folks as a private tutor.

I offer free consultations as well as a one-hour trial tutoring session in person in your home or at a local library or via webcam to confirm that I am a good fit for your student. I also offer group tutoring (maximum of 3-to-1) at discounted pricing. This is ideal for siblings, friends, classmates, and teammates. Please contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule a free consultation and/or session. I look forward to assisting your child on his or her academic journey and sharing my love of learning!

Knowledgeable and patient tutor

Jesse comes on time and with a great positive attitude. He truly cares about not only your writing but your story behind the writing. He also taught me life lessons and I am so glad I chose Jesse to be my tutor; he made the essay portion of college applications much less stressful.

Ashley, 4 lessons with Jesse

Really wish he'd move in....

Jesse is The Best! My son loves him and works with him in a way I've never been able to get him to. We look forward to every session, and he's getting better at writing and more independent each time.
