About Jesse

I am a lifelong learner eager to share my passion and experience with others. I see teaching as more than simply the reciting of knowledge, but as a challenge to understand how to present that knowledge in a way to most effectively communicate it to the learner.

I attained my B.A. in Theatre Arts with a minor in Japanese Language at Earlham College, a prestigious liberal arts school in Richmond, IN. I have worked full-time at the University of Michigan for the past 10 years in the field of instructional support.

I believe success in mathematics relies just as much on understanding learning as it does remembering concepts. I worked for several years supporting research projects that focused on the idea that understanding how individual students think about math is crucial to being able to helping them to learn; that pointing out wrong answers is not as useful as understanding how students came to that answer and using that as a launch point for correcting misunderstanding.

I love the English language in all it's complexities and intricacies. I am voracious reader, one who enjoys a well-constructed sentence almost as much as a well-told story. As the son of two English majors, language arts has always been an integral and natural aspect of my life.

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.

Theater

I have spent the majority of my life involved with Theatre in some capacity or another. I obtained my B.A. in Theatre from Earlham College in 2004 and followed that up with a year-long apprenticeship at the Purple Rose Theatre, founded by actor Jeff Daniels. I have worked with professional theatres across Southeast Michigan for many years, mostly acting and stage managing.
