About Jessica

Hello!

My name is Jessica and I am a licensed English and Spanish teacher currently working in the corporate world. I've known I've wanted to teach since I was a Junior in high school, but with the job market being what it is, I'm looking for other opportunities to do what I love!

I have worked extensively with students with learning disabilities and have taught a really wide range of classes at the Junior High and High School levels, including Speech, Writing, and both Advanced Placement and Essentials level courses. Throughout college, I had the chance to teach reading to kindergartners, Spanish to elementary students, and volunteered extensively with different organizations, including the YWCA, that focused heavily on providing after school tutoring opportunities to students with limited means at home.

Every day, I work until 4:30 PM. All tutoring opportunities will need to begin after 6 PM, just to ensure that I can make appointments on time. I am also available on weekends, if necessary.
