About Jessica

I am a certified teacher with three years' experience in middle and high school. I have a Bachelor's degree in History with certifications in history, social studies, and English.

I have proctored ACT/MME many times. I have a great deal of experience helping students with ACT prep. If you are looking to improve your score, I can help you!

I have worked with many students with grammar and proof-reading. Having someone look over your paper can make a big difference in your final grade.

I also have a wealth of experience tutoring elementary-age (K-6) students in many subjects, especially reading and math. It is very rewarding to watch my younger students learn, discover, and grow.

My philosophy is that a good education is the best investment you can make, and it is never to late to learn!

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.

ACT English

The ACT exam can be scary for many high school students, but with a little preparation and practice, any student can succeed! I have a lot of experience working with ACT prep. students. I have proctored the PLAN and ACT/MME tests, and tutored ACT Reading and English students on a one-on-one basis. I have also worked closely with high school teachers as they prepare their students for the ACT/MME. (Not to mention, I took the test myself not too long ago!) I have access to lots of great ACT resources. Sometimes all a student needs to succeed is a little individual attention and instruction that doesn't come from a boring ACT prep. book! I try to make my ACT lessons fun and enjoyable for students. I know I can help your child succeed!

ACT Reading

The ACT Reading test is daunting for many high school students, but with a little preparation and practice, any student can succeed! I have a lot of experience working with ACT prep. students. I have proctored the PLAN and ACT/MME tests, and tutored ACT Reading and English students on a one-on-one basis. I have also worked closely with high school teachers as they prepare their students for the ACT/MME. (Not to mention, I took the test myself not too long ago!) I have access to lots of great ACT resources. Sometimes all a student needs to succeed is a little individual attention and instruction that doesn't come from a boring ACT prep. book! I try to make my ACT lessons fun and enjoyable for students. I know I can help your child succeed!

I am a certified Social Studies teacher (RX certification). That includes Civics/Government, Economics, Geography, and general Social Studies. I have lots of experience both taking these classes, and also tutoring students in these subjects. I'd be happy to help you with any of your Social Studies problems.

English

English is a wonderful, but sometimes confusing language. A good knowledge of English is also necessary for success in all other subjects. As a certified English teacher, I have experience in grammar, writing, literature, and reading. I have worked with students in every subject from ESL (English as a second language) to ACT English preparation to basic grammar and proofreading. I would love to help you achieve success in English as well!

European History

"History is a pact between the dead, the living, and the yet unborn." ~Edmund Burke

History has always been, and always will be my passion. It helps us understand the present and appreciate the past. I've been fortunate to have great teachers who inspired me and instilled in me a love and appreciation for the past. That's why I received my B.A. in History and am now a certified history teacher. I find it very rewarding to help students discover connections and themes in history, and to teach them how to analyze and synthesize history for themselves.

Government & Politics

Grammar

I a certified English teacher, so whether it's proof-reading a paper, or more formal English grammar like diagramming sentences, I'd be happy to help you out.

Literature

I am a certified English teacher, and a lover of literature. I'd love to help you!

Political Science

I am a certified Social Studies teacher with two years of experience teaching U.S. Government and Politics. I also minored in political science. So, whether you want someone to explain the differences between the Republican and Democratic parties, or you need help in a high school or college class, I'm the best person for the job!

Prealgebra

Math can be daunting for many students, especially when they reach pre-algebra and things start to get a bit more complicated. I have about two years of experience tutoring pre-algebra. I will explain concepts to your child in a simple way that they can understand and patiently work with them until they can do it on their own.

Proofreading

I am a certified English teacher with lots of proof-reading experience. So, whether it's proof-reading a paper, or more formal English grammar like diagramming sentences, I'd be happy to help you out.

Reading

Reading is the foundation for success in every other subject. As a certified English teacher, I believe it is important to integrate reading into every other content area. As a life-long reader, I know how reading can open doors to new experiences. I have a lot of experience tutoring students at every reading level: from those who are just starting to learn their alphabet, to those who are preparing to take the ACT Reading exam. I have great programs and resources for every level, and I'm sure I can help your child build (or rebuild) that important reading foundation!

Social Studies

I am a certified teacher with more than two years of Social Studies teaching experience at the middle and high school levels. I am the best person to help you with all of your Social Studies needs!

Study Skills

As a certified teacher, I believe that organization and good study habits are the keys to success in school. I will give you and your child simple ideas that I have found to be useful for my students and myself, such as planners, manageable goals, and accountability. I have also taken education classes such as Educational Psychology, which provide me with a background to help develop effective habits. Developing good study skills is not a one time fix, however. It takes time to develop. Little changes can make a big difference!

World History

History has always been, and always will be my passion. It helps us understand the present and appreciate the past. I've been fortunate to have great teachers who inspired me and instilled in me a love and appreciation for the past. That's why I received my B.A. in History and became a certified History teacher. I find it very rewarding to help students discover connections and themes in history, and to teach them how to analyze and synthesize history for themselves.

Whether you just need someone to polish up and important paper, or you need to start from the ground up with the basic mechanics of the English language, I'd love to help!

Writing is the foundation of effective communication. As a history and English major, I've written my fair share of papers, and have learned a thing or two about how to communicate effectively.
