About Jessica

I have five years of experience working as a reporter for a daily newspaper and hold a bachelor's degree in journalism. My writing and editing experience is extensive and I would love to share my skills with students who need help with writing, reading and English.

My most recent tutoring experience was working with a native adult Spanish speaker once a week for a year to help her learn English. I also have experience tutoring fifth and sixth graders in all subjects. I am the oldest of three, so I have gained a lot of patience over the years while helping my siblings (now in high school and college) with their schoolwork.

In addition, I have helped countless friends and family members write and edit cover letters, college essays and personal statements. This is probably the best service I can offer as a tutor. I am confident in my ability to help students hone their writing skills, by picking apart sentences with them and showing them how to rearrange sentences and paragraphs so their ideas are clear and concise.

I also minored in Spanish and have undergone 18 hours of training to teach English as a second language to adult learners, so I am open to helping students who are beginning to learn the language.

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.

Writing

For the past five years I have worked as a reporter for the Daily Herald. Aside from my job, I have helped many friends and family members improve their writing for school and work. I am also somewhat familiar with the type of writing assignments high students are presented with today, as my younger sister is currently in her sophomore year.
