I have experience teaching students from kindergarden through college. My favorite subjects to tutor in are math (including Algebra, Geometry and Pre-calculus), writing, science, social studies/political science and test preparation. I am also knowledgeable in many other subjects including French, science, government, economics, literature, history and English. Throughout my education I have learned study habits that lead to great grades and test scores from AP classes and SAT and ACT tests in high school to Honors classes and GRE tests in college. Throughout my education and work I have seen the success of one on one tutoring over group classes.
Further, I recognize that each student learns differently including through auditory, visual, and kinesthetic styles or a combination of the techniques. Additionally, I focus on increasing confidence in my students to help them prepare for their future endeavors. I am passionate about creating individualized lessons to enhance comprehension, raise grades, increase test scores, and help them get into ideal future schools!

Jessica tutored my daughter for a few months to help her raise her SAT scores. Jessica had great ideas/tips to raise scores. She worked hard with my daughter in math and English. We got the SAT results and her math increased 90%. Jessica is very detailed and great help to my daughter.
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.
I took AP World, AP European, AP US, and AP Government in high school. I was a Political Science Major at Santa Clara University, where I did an Honors Thesis on Palestine and Israel's relationship. I also have a Masters in Public Policy from Pepperdine, which included state, local, federal, economic, and environmental policy.
I have learned great study skills through my experience with the Honors Program during high school, college and graduate school. Specific tests include AP tests, SAT main and subject tests, and the GRE. I also have prepared other students successfully for college and high school tests, the SAT, and the GRE.
