About Jessica

Experienced mentor with elementary through college and graduate students in a wide variety of subjects. Some of my favorite subjects to tutor in are math (Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Statistics), science (Biology, Chemistry, Environmental), social studies (World and US History, Gov), Economics, French, English Literature and Writing, test preparation (SAT/ACT/GRE), as well as college and graduate school applications.

Throughout my education I developed worthwhile study habits and organization that led to great grades in AP classes in high school and Honors courses in college. Further, I provide help for applications to high schools, colleges, and graduate schools.

Additionally, 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!

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.

Political Science

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.

Social Studies

I have tutored students in middle and high school in Medieval and Modern World History and American History and Government. I also took AP World, AP European, AP US, and AP Government in high school. I was a Political Science and Philosophy double major at Santa Clara University which covered various Social Studies subjects including Psychology, Women's Studies, and various other courses on human interaction. Further, I have a Masters in Public Policy from Pepperdine, which included state, local, federal, economic, and environmental policy.

Study Skills

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.
