About Jessica

I have been tutoring for a while now. Mostly, I have tutored college level students at Grand Rapids Community College in the Language Arts Tutorial Lab. I usually tutor students who struggle to keep up with their coursework, need help with grammar, punctuation, technical, creative, structuring, planning, and comprehension, as well as those with reading difficulties. I also tutor ESL (English as a Second Language) students. I'm great with research papers and MLA citations. When I was in high school, I was a Student Educator and Listener in the SEALs program where I tutored a seventh grade special education class at Crossroads Middle School for a year every other day. I've learned to tutor students in ways that meet their learning styles and comprehension levels. For some, I focus more on global issues more than local writing and reading issues. I also have written for the Collegiate newspaper at Grand Rapids Community College as a journalist and proofreader. My majors are English and Secondary Education, minoring in abnormal psychology. I graduate in May, and then I start at Grand Valley State University in the fall for my bachelors' degrees. I strive to one day become an English teacher for high school level and then higher education, as well as work in publishing. I also write fiction novels as a hobby. To date, I have written ten novels since I was eighteen. I am highly motivated, a good listener, have excellent people, leadership, and communication skills. I am also patient, compassionate, a diligent and goal-oriented worker dedicated to helping others accomplish their goals and improve their abilities as independent learners.
