About Jesse

My tutoring experience started as a volunteer adult literacy tutor at Literacy KC. I worked with my student in a variety of subjects, developed a wonderful bond, and achieved spectacular progress. I employed various learning strategies with my student to find the approach that best suited his learning style. I take great pride in my efforts to teach and I often went beyond the program's expectations to help my student.
I love tutoring because it is mutually rewarding. I like to see my students succeed because I can see a sense of ability, confidence and pride develop over time. I have a had a life-long enjoyment of academics and great success in a wide variety of subjects. Throughout all grade levels my teachers and professors have praised me for my engagement, thoughtfulness, and excellent work in subject matter.

As an adult literacy tutor I helped my student increase his reading, writing, and grammar skills by three grade levels. My second major at Northwest Missouri State University was Spanish, so I have awareness of many of the problems that non-native speakers confront in learning English. My degree in psychology has given me many years of experience writing within science, research, and technical styles. Also, I have continued my English writing skills with more coursework at UMKC. Thus, I also have experience reading, analyzing, and composing in literary and aesthetic fields. My coursework at UMKC was all upper-level, so I am very confident working with the most difficult fiction, non-fiction, and poetic works that the English language has to offer.

Whatever the age level of the student, I am excited to work with any student. I am a fun, positive, patient, and knowledgeable person. Also, I have a talent for empathizing and connecting with all age levels.
