About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessie. Some basics about me: I graduated with two majors in philosophy and the history of math and science, and two minors in classics and comparative literature. It sounds crazy, right? I have also studied Latin, Ancient Greek, and French.

As a former Peace Corps Volunteer, I lived and worked in Senegal for three and a half years as a Health Education Volunteer.

In addition to some current tutoring work with a non-profit in Chicago, I've also taught in small classrooms. I worked for Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth as a Teaching Assistant during the summers of 2005, 2007, and 2008. CTY is a very fast-paced academic program in which students spend about 40 hours in the classroom every week to cover a year's worth of material in one three-week session. Working at CTY was a great way to develop methods of working with many different kids, and many different learning styles.

I've been lucky to have some amazing teachers in my life, and so education is very important to me. But learning is also very fun for me (you may have guessed it by now, but I'm a little bit of a nerd). I don't think I'm doing my job as a tutor if I can't make it fun for you, too!

My guarantee to you is that your child will enjoy our time together. He or she will be more curious about school, life, and the world in general after working with me. And if you and your child are not satisfied, I will not accept your payment.

Hope to hear from you soon!

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 have tutored children as young as 1st grade and through high school in the past. I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth programs for years, including time in their programs for younger children and well as high school students. My responsibilities often included working with students who were either struggling or advancing more quickly than their peers. I am warm and personable, and I believe very firmly in allowing children in this age range to explore their academic abilities.
