About Jessica

I am PASSIONATE about creating a meaningfully Tutor/Student relationship. I graduated from Elmhurst College Magna Cum Laude with a degree in English/Theatre Secondary Education. During my time at Elmhurst I was a Tutor for the Elmhurst Writing Center. As a tutor I know the importance of building up a trusting relationship in a comforting environment where students feel able to open up, make mistakes, and get on track for success. I am a certified teacher in Indiana and Illinois 6-12 grade English/Theatre. In addition I've also had experience work with Sylvan Learning Center. During my time there I was able to help students pin-point their weak areas in order to turn them into strengths. I know what it takes to help a student decipher and decode complex passages in a 1:1 setting through my time as a tutor. I graduated with highest distinction from Valparaiso University Graduate School with a Masters in English. I also hold a Juris Doctorate from Valparaiso University Law School.

I am about co-creating the learning experience. I want my tutoring to match your personal learning style. I love working in the tutoring setting because it allows me the opportunity to work 1:1 with a student to personalize a learning experience that is going to help them engage with the subject matter in a way that is approachable in order to achieve their desired results. Everybody has the heart of a writer and a love for literature they just need a guide to show them the way! I am great at helping students brainstorm and mind-map when it comes to organizing topics for papers. I am willing to meet students where they are at skill wise in order to stand in the gap and fill in deficits.

I am flexible with scheduling and I am willing to work with your schedule for you to get the most out of our tutoring sessions together. I look forward to working with you in the near future! Feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions.

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.
