About Jessica

I have been passionate about reading and writing since I was a child. I truly enjoy helping individuals of all ages learn how strong reading, writing, and comprehension skills are important, and helping to turn those skills into passion. Seeing students learn, grow, and reach their full potential is an exciting and joyful experience.

I have the most experience with elementary-level and college-aged students. I tutored fourth-grade students at my local elementary school over a period of one year with a focus on reading and vocabulary/spelling. I also tutored unofficially on my college campus. There, my focus was on assisting students with academic papers, especially those for English courses. I helped students complete papers step-by-step, from their critical thinking of the text, to the structure and language/grammar used in their papers.

Though most of my experience is with the youngest and eldest of students, I am also comfortable working with middle school and high school students. Being the oldest of a family of six, I am very familiar with the English skills needed for all ages.

I graduated magna cum laude from Frostburg State University, where I earned by B.S. in English with a concentration in Professional Writing and also minored in Women's Studies. My grammar and writing skills are strong, and I am very familiar with many of the classic texts taught in our schools.

I am an avid reader and I enjoy analyzing texts and writing critical essays. My professional experience includes writing for magazines, newspapers, and working on newsletters and social media posts for one of the area's largest hospitals.

I look forward to hearing from you! I am very flexible with my schedule and would love to help you master your reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.
