About Jessica

Teaching and coaching have been two passions of mine that have developed into a profession. As a four-year collegiate scholar-athlete and honors graduate I understand the importance of time-management, hard work and true dedication. As an licensed educator for the past several years I have helped hundreds of students in both national and international settings realize the extent of their educational capabilities and meet their educational goals. In regards to teaching on an international level I have taught students from all over the globe while student teaching in Santiago, Chile! I was fortunate enough to work with ESL students from Korea, China, Australia, and South America. I thoroughly believe success is achieved when you are able to help others become successful themselves!

I specialize in tutoring History as well as the Praxis exam. The process of taking the Praxis exam is something I have lived and achieved myself. World History, Geography, American History and the Ancient Civilizations and cultures are just some of the subjects I seek to bring to life! Periodic assessments, as well as guided practice will be fully implemented so that the students will be challenged but not overwhelmed. Additionally, through worksheets, and homework activities students will be able to further understand key figures, events and dates.

Constructive feedback will regularly be a part of the tutoring process to help develop as well as encourage the student. Teaching History as well as serving as a Teacher's Assistant for the History Department throughout college has been an experience that has allowed me to effectively practice and develop these teaching methods . Whether we are preparing to be an educator, writing a historical research paper, or understanding cultures of the world my overall goal is to allow each student to realize their learning capabilities and implement them effectively.

I am a firm believer in constantly improving and developing not only students but also myself. This level of integrity welcomes constructive feedback from parents and students alike. If a lesson does not properly meet the expectation of the student and or parent I will not charge for that lesson.

While a 24 hour courtesy notice is encouraged I am fairly flexible when it comes to scheduling, and there is always opportunity to make up for missed lessons.

Learning environment is crucial when it comes to effective study time so tutoring locations may vary depending on the learning preferences of the student. Online tutoring is another option students may benefit from!

If you are ready to tackle those learning goals feel free to contact me and we will get started achieving success in your studies!
