Bio

In every job I've had, I've taken on the role of an educator: from training new employees and educating consumers, to my current employment as a high school teacher. Helping someone to learn and understand something is my passion, as is my own quest for life-long learning. I have recently accrued hundreds of hours of professional development courses to increase my knowledge on teaching methods, with a focus on struggling students.

In every job I've had, I've taken on the role of an educator: from training new employees and educating consumers, to my current employment as a high school teacher. Helping someone to learn and understand something is my passion, as is my own quest for life-long learning. I have recently accrued hundreds of hours of professional development courses to increase my knowledge on teaching methods, with a focus on struggling students.

I also have experience working with students enrolled in online courses. If you are completing a course for credit recovery or for graduation requirements, I can be the "teacher in the room" to help you understand the material.

Biology and Algebra can be very difficult courses for students, especially students who are also transitioning to more rigorous high school course work. Since these courses are both graduation requirements, with an End of Course Exam, they are critical for your success in school! I can work with you to develop a customized set of sessions throughout the summer to help students to gain necessary background knowledge prior to enrolling in a course to ensure academic success throughout the course.

While my "first love" is biology, I have also taught many other science courses, both in the classroom and in private tutoring. Because science is linked with math, I am very comfortable tutoring math including Algebra and Geometry, and have the knowledge, materials, and strategies to help students prepare for high-stakes End-Of-Course Exams. Additionally, I have obtained my Reading Endorsement and understand that reading is embedded in all content areas and something that I am very passionate about teaching. There are many strategies that I would love to share that can help students to understand the course content, improve grades, and prepare for exams.

I offer after-school tutoring during the week and on weekends, as well as throughout the summer, and I can be flexible to accommodate your needs. I do require 24-hour notice on cancellations, but can offer make up sessions. Introductory sessions can take place in a local library or other public setting.

I look forward to hearing from you to begin our journey to greater success!

Geometry - first tutoring lesson

Jessica helped my daughter feel comfortable with the process of tutoring and helped her not to be intimidated or feel "stupid". After Jessica left, my daughter said, "I think she will be helpful" :) which is very good for a teenager who does not like math and did not want a tutor in the first place. Thanks Jessica, I think this will be great!

Melanie, 8 lessons with Jessica

Knowledgeable tutor

My daughter liked her lesson with Jessica. She is very detailed and easy going. After class she informed me in details what they did during the class and what will be the next step. So far we are satisfied with Jessica.

Nuci, 21 lessons with Jessica

good instructor!

She was punctual and explained the material in a way that my daughter could comprehend it and Jessica also asked questions to "prod" her critical thinking and not merely regurgitate what she had learned. Patient and carefully planned the lesson so that it was geared to what my daughter specifically needed to learn. We look forward to more sessions with Jessica in the future!
