About Jess


Bio

Hi, I’m Jess! I’ve been tutoring for about 3 years and I love working with my students because I learn so much from them AND I get to see them progress! I hold an MFA in Poetry and an MA in English, so I’m best at tutoring in those subjects, though I have tutored most subjects. I find that it’s not necessarily about the subject material, but more so about the methods that I use for student success—such as various proven strategies for making ANY assignment easier. Your child will hopefully be...

Hi, I’m Jess! I’ve been tutoring for about 3 years and I love working with my students because I learn so much from them AND I get to see them progress! I hold an MFA in Poetry and an MA in English, so I’m best at tutoring in those subjects, though I have tutored most subjects. I find that it’s not necessarily about the subject material, but more so about the methods that I use for student success—such as various proven strategies for making ANY assignment easier. Your child will hopefully be able to use these strategies to develop life skills for the long run!

I’m an outstanding English tutor because I have experience with both the technical aspects of the English language and the more creative sides of English, such as poetry and literature.

Feel free to contact me to set up a time for tutoring! My schedule varies, but I will check messages often and get back to you ASAP.

Reading

I have always loved reading, and also spent most of my undergraduate and graduate years reading thousands upon thousands of pages of poetry and modern and contemporary literature. I have also spent some time reading classics and much older literature, such as The Canterbury Tales. Even though I am not currently in school, I still read every week for fun.
Study Skills

Study Skills

Most of what I offer as a tutor is in Executive Functioning, which are functions of the brain that help the person plan, remember, focus, etc. I am currently tutoring for a company which specifically focuses on this and has trained me on how to tutor executive functioning skills and strategies. I really enjoy this form of tutoring because it helps the whole student for their whole life -- not just in the 1 subject they need help in at school for the time being.

I graduated from Salem State University with an MA in English and a concentration in Writing in 2017. I graduated from the same university with a BA in English in 2015. I also hold an MFA in Poetry from Lesley University, where I graduated in 2020. I have tutored at a couple of different companies, on my own, and through my undergraduate and graduate programs.
Literature,

Literature

I hold two masters degrees--in English and in Poetry. I have spent countless hours reading contemporary, modern, and classic literature, as well as much older literature, such as The Canterbury Tales and Beowulf. I took a medieval literature specific course in graduate school, and I also took an Expatriates literature course, which focused on 1800s and 1900s literature. I have also spent countless hours reading various contemporary, modern, and classic poetry books.

Writing

I have written countless poems, papers, and short stories. As a Masters in English student, I wrote papers on medieval literature, 1900s expatriate literature, and contemporary as well as class literature. As an MFA student, I wrote many poems on those who touch me in seemingly connected, important ways. I have been published in 10+ magazines and journals.
