About Jessie

Are you ready to excel in English? Do you find grammar and writing to be particularly challenging? I can help you. My 20 years of professional experience includes working in a variety of educational settings over the past 20 years as an ESL teacher and tutor. I have also trained teachers and designed instruction. Throughout my career, I have helped students just like you master the English language and become better communicators, readers, and writers in English.

Learning involves thinking and strategizing. Therefore, my approach to tutoring clients involves working with them to help them identify the knowledge and skills that they need to master in order to succeed in academic settings. I am particularly skilled in facilitating students' acquisition of English reading, writing, and grammar skills as well as student success.

I hold a Masters of Science degree in Applied Linguistics/English as a second language and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy. I have also completed 18 graduate semester hours in Instructional Design and Technology. In additional to my 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience, I have also designed and developed curricula and instruction for a variety of instructional programs and purposes including online instruction. I am also proficient in German.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Masters of Science Degree in Applied Linguistics/Teaching English as a second language. I have taught ESL for over 14 years. Specifically, I have taught English for Academic Purposes, the goal of which is to prepare students to the reading/writing/oral communication/academic skills required to succeed in college level courses.

I have taught ESL in 2-year and 4-year colleges in the United States and in the Middle East. I have also tutored ESL students for the TOEFL. I have worked with students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. The vast majority of my students have been successful in meeting their academic goals as a result of my teaching/tutoring services.

General Computer

I have extensive experience in the use of several computer software products that enable students to enhance presentations of their work. Over the years, I have helped students acquire proficiency in Microsoft Office products such as Word and PowerPoint in order to showcase their writing and to enhance their oral presentations. Additionally, there are web 2.0 tools such as Google that offer students a wealth of options for storing, retrieving, and presenting their work. Some of the web 2.0 tools that I have facilitated students in using are Google Documents and Spreadsheets, Google Sites, Blogger, Filamentality, Word Press, 4shared, and WebCT. I delight in assisting students in finding a technological tool to enhance both their learning and their learning products.
