About Jessica

Since my early childhood, I have had a strong love for learning and teaching.

I grew up in South Florida, and accepted nothing but straight A's from myself. I participated in multiple mentorship/tutoring programs (Big Brothers Big Sisters, ER Ambassadors, Reading Buddies) during my academic career, because I loved to share my knowledge with peers and younger students. I graduated High School at the top of my class, and went to the University of Central Florida on a full scholarship, where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May 2015.

I began teaching as a junior intern in September 2014, became a senior intern in January 2015, and was hired by OCPS to teach a week before my graduation in May 2015.

My students are the reason I get out of bed every morning, and the world I revolve around. Their success, safety, and happiness are my top priority. The best feeling in the world is watching a student finally "get" something that they've struggled with, and I work tirelessly to get them to that point.

Before June 10th, 2016, I will be available most afternoons from 5:30pm-9:30pm, and I am willing to travel.
After June 10th, 2016, I will be available most days from 9am-9pm, and I am willing to travel.

Math has always been a love of mine, and come very naturally to me, but I understand that it does not come this way for everyone. Through my college education and career experience, I have learned many strategies to help students who are struggling with these subjects.

I am an ESOL endorsed teacher, and studied ESOL strategies extensively in college. I currently have multiple ESOL students in my classroom, and understand the basic needs of ESOL students, as well as how to identify their needs as individuals.

In the state of Florida, we teach the "Florida Standards", which are essentially an adapted version of the Common Core state standards with some changes. I understand how to read, decompose, and teach to these standards, and have access to supporting resources as well.

Elementary Education is my academic AND professional background! I am a Kindergarten teacher, but have experience as a teacher in many grade levels through service learning and internship opportunities. My coursework at UCF gave me extensive knowledge about the needs and goals of Elementary students.

I am excited to hear from you, and look forward to helping you meet your academic goals!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. I hold a valid teaching certificate in the state of Florida in K-6 Education. I am currently teaching Kindergarten in Orange County, Florida.

Handwriting

In Kindergarten, children learn how to perfect letter formation and develop their handwriting, and I teach kindergarten. I have many strategies and resources for tutoring and teaching handwriting, such as workbooks, dry erase materials, and other handwriting practice tools. I am also able to write in cursive, and would be able to teach/tutor it as well.

Phonics

I am reading endorsed in the state of Florida. I teach Kindergarten, where phonics is a huge component of our reading curriculum. I studied phonics instruction during my coursework at the University of Central Florida.
