About Jessica

"To teach is to touch a life forever (unknown)" this is just one of my favorite mottoes. I'm so proud to have the opportunity to mold so many young adults and create lifelong learners. I am excited with my new tutoring endeavors so that I can focus on a one-to-one basis with students. I look forward to the students' realization of their success!

I'm a certified middle school teacher with endorsements in science, social studies, and language arts. However, I specialize in study skills and homework assistance in all subjects. I believe having a variety of these skills creates and boosts student confidence so that he/she can tackle anything that comes their way in education.

It is important to me to have open communication with the student, parent, and teacher. The student strives the best when we all work together to meet the student's need. I will try to be as flexible as possible (evening hours are best for me) but appreciate a cancellation call in advance and am happy to offer make up sessions.

To ensure the student has a comfortable study space to work I am happy to tutor at the library or in another location that is convenient.

I eagerly await your reply and having the chance to work with you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 taught grades 5 through 8 for almost 10 years. I have my elementary degree from Illinois State. Furthermore, I have an endorsement in middle school science, language arts, and social studies.

Study Skills

I have been an elementary / middle school teacher, who, on a weekly basis, taught my students test prep skills for the ISAT. Furthermore, while teaching non-fiction science text, I emphasized study skills strategies. Specifically, I employed a variety of note-taking skills that focused on learning strategies (i.e. main idea and details, cause and effect, sequencing, etc.).
