I am a graduate of Florida Southern College with a Bachelor's degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry plus a minor in Psychology; in addition, to having obtained a medical degree from Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine. The approach I utilize towards tutoring is based on understanding knowledge and not just memorizing the information. When I was a student, I took countless exams and realize how overwhelming and frustrating learning can be.

I tutored students while I attended Florida Southern College where I enjoyed assisting with the learning process. I love helping students discover ways to strengthen their weaknesses by determining how they best comprehend information through tactile, visual, auditory, or a combination of the aforementioned methods. Ascertaining the optimal way to learn based on each students' own needs and also reviewing test taking skills during each session aid to sharpen the ability to demonstrate proficiency in a given subject.

I am willing to meet students in public locations or their own homes. I do have a 12 hour cancellation policy so I can adequately prepare for sessions. I look forward to guiding and explaining how to achieve your academic goals.

Great Tutor

My son has been struggling with Biology class. Jessica, in a few sessions, was really able to connect with my son. She created a study plan and explained the material in ways that finally made it meaningful to my son. We were very lucky to find Jessica as tutor for my son. I highly recommend Jessica, she is a great tutor.
