I want to help students who are struggling with eLearning, especially those in their senior year and/or working on large writing assignments.

I love to help students write, and I have developed an outline and sample essay which guides student through the essay writing process. Let me help make your essay/research project easy. I'd love to help you earn that A you deserve!

If you're not needing help with a writing assignment, I can also assist you with the ACT and other test taking strategies/study tips. I earned a 35 on the Reading and English sections, and I'm a great test taker. Other students have greatly benefited from my tips to get through the Reading section quickly.

Still looking for another subject? Well, I can help you and your students with all math at the middle school level and below. At the high school and college levels, I can teach you and/or your student Algebra 1 and 2, Geometry, and some Trig. I teach each problem in multiple ways until I learn my students' learning styles so I can personalize my tutoring.

I would love to help and your children become even more successful! I have been tutoring independently for over 3 years, and I know the 12 students I've worked with on Wyzant's platform have had great success with my tutoring abilities! Will you be next?

Grammar,

Grammar

I have never received less than a A on a paper when it comes to grammar. In college, a professor touted she would remove points from scores due to grammatical errors. I found five spelling and grammatical errors in her syllabus that first class. I never lost a point to a grammatical error in her class or any other in high school or college. I excel at explaining the uses of commas, apostrophes, quotation marks, etc. Grammar is a subject I know backwards and forwards, and it's come in handy when writing papers, when editing others' work, and when taking standardized tests.
Proofreading,

Proofreading

Most people struggle with proofreading because they either find it boring or because they don't have the knowledge base. I LOVE to proofread. My mom is an English teacher. As such, I have had grammar rules drilled into my head since I was very young. This has given me the ability to never earn less than a B on a paper in high school or college. I'm competent with both MLA and APA styles as MLA was what I used in high school, and I used APA in college.

Elementary Education

Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have tutored math at the 7th grade level and up. Yet, some of the students have needed help understanding elementary math before progressing to math at their grade level. This is something I excel at because I have worked with students with learning disabilities that are sometimes accompanied by IEPs. This has enabled me to learn to teach concepts in multiple and varying ways until a student grasps the concept.

Reading

Reading

When I meet a student who hates to read, I do my best to discover the reasoning behind it. A lot of times, a student struggles to read, and I teach the student reading strategies he/she needs to come to enjoy reading as much as I do. I can tutor students who are just learning to read as well as students who are proficient readers and just struggle with comprehension.

English

ACT English,

ACT English

Increase your score in the English section with my help. I earned a 35 on the English section when I took the ACT, and students' English scores go up a minimum of 3 points with my help. Learn how to eliminate answer choices and choose the right answer. This is because I excel at teaching grammar, spelling, and vocabulary.
ACT Reading,

ACT Reading

Improve your ACT Reading score with my help. Learn how to get through the passages more quickly by only reading the "right" information. Learn what to do before, during, and after reading the passages. I earned a 35 on this section when I took the ACT, and a student increased his Reading score by 3 points after only one session with me. He's not the first nor will he be the last. This is because I know great reading and test taking skills. I have helped numerous students develop ways to get through passages more quickly if they are slow readers, and I have developed ways for students to better understand the material if they find themselves bored and/or distracted in this section of the ACT.
English,

English

English is a subject I have enjoyed for as long as I can remember. This is probably because my mom is an English teacher, and I have a strong knowledge base from grammar to essay writing to reading comprehension. I have been getting extra lessons drilled into my head for a very long time thanks to my mother. This has helped me since high school edit my friends' and peers' research papers and other projects/assignments. I love editing and helping students write everything from lab reports to research papers to simple essay questions as homework assignments.

Writing

Writing

Are you great at writing? Or, are you not a "writer"? I had an English teacher for a mom, so I never earned less than an A on my papers from middle school through college. I want to help you write an A-paper. Through WyzAnt and independent tutoring, students have seen their English grades increase with my help due to my proofreading and writing abilities. I excel at teaching students how to covey the message they wish to get across to their audience. I help students with organization, word choice, and conventions. Outlines and concept maps are essential tools I teach students how to create. I also thoroughly enjoy helping them proofread their work.

Homeschool

Algebra 1,

Algebra 1

Students have worked me one-on-one when I worked as a para at a middle school and high school and when I've tutored them outside of school. Students have been both general education and special education. No matter what, they learn their math material successfully because I take the time to individualize my instruction. I find out what type of learner my students are, and I adapt my tutoring to their needs. We break out the dry erase markers, we create graphs and charts, we tell stories, etc. Students get As on their homework, tests, and in their math classes when I'm involved.

Prealgebra,

Prealgebra

I have tutored math at the 6th grade level and higher. Plus, I currently work as a para at a high school after working at a middle school. This requires me to work-on-one with students in various classes, including prealgebra through algebra three. Being "back in school" has refreshed my memory on many concepts and reminded me how I much enjoy helping others excel at math.

Science

ACT Science,

ACT Science

I have a biology degree which makes it easier for me to explain the scientific concepts behind the graphs, charts, and data presented in the ACT Science section than tutors without a science background. Having experience creating various charts, tables, graphs, etc. and writing lab reports makes it easy for me to teach students how to interpret the information presented alongside the questions which I have successfully done with several students.
Physical Science

Physical Science

I have a biology degree and as such, I took many classes pertaining to the subjects contained within most Physical Science courses. Many of my classes went much more in-depth on the same subjects covered in Physical Science, so I know more than the basics. Science is a love of mine, and has been since elementary school. The high school student I currently tutor hates biology, but I'm slowly getting him to change his mind.

Special Needs

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD),

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

Last year, I worked in a middle school with special education children. All of the children in my program were autistic. Some could communicate while others were hard to understand or were pretty nonverbal. This year, I am at a high school working with Emotionally Disturbed students. I am able to work around the temper tantrums, frustrations, and distractions in order to help students learn. If I need to come up with six different ways to teach a student one concept, I do it. If a student understands how to do something on Mon, but not on Tues, we relearn it on Tues and practice it Weds.
Special Needs

Special Needs

I work in a special education classroom currently. I am familiar with IEPs after working with students with them every day and because I have tutored students independently with them. Plus, my sister was special needs all the way from elementary through high school.

Sports/Recreation

Softball

Softball

I played fast pitch softball during middle school and high school. My best positions were pitcher, first base, and right field. I have also dabbled in slow pitch softball. I have been both a player and a coach. My strengths are my ability to catch and to throw long distances. I have taught players the basics of the game and helped others to better their catching and throwing abilities.

Helpful and time worthy

Jessyka is very easy for my son to work with. They are working on ACT prep and he seems engaged and interested when session is over with her help. He seems more confident for upcoming test.

Beth, 3 lessons with Jessyka

Patient Tutor

We worked on some of my grammar skills and skills needed to know for the ACT. We had some conflicts pop up for meeting the first time but she was very understanding and make time for another date.

Jordan, 1 lesson with Jessyka

Jessyka is great!

Jessyka is tutoring my son in math. They've had great success together. With her tutoring, he's been able to raise the score on his most recent homework from 18% to 95%. Jessyka is patient and isn't at all deterred by the fact that my son has a learning disability.
