My name is Jessica, and I am a private tutor and certified classroom Language Arts and special education teacher with experience teaching and tutoring K-12, college, and adult students. My love of teaching comes from a passion for reading and writing and a compassion for helping others become confident and successful learners.

I am a certified English teacher with over ten years of classroom experience in middle school and high school settings. In addition to working in the classroom setting, I have fifteen years of experience tutoring students in all levels of middle and high school English, including advanced and AP courses, college level literature and writing courses, as well as 4th and 5th graders in reading, writing, and vocabulary. I am also certified and experienced in teaching students with learning disabilities in both co-taught and resource room learning environments. I have received extensive training in the Columbia University readers and writers workshop model and advanced methods of multi-sensory instruction.

My wealth of knowledge and experience teaching students of diverse cultural backgrounds and various learning abilities has made me an expert at tailoring my instructional approach and strategies to meet the needs of each individual learner. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

Flexible and knowledgeable Tutor

Jessica has been meeting our daughter in person to help enhance some area she wanted to work on in English. She has adapted to some other topics on essay writing as well. She is patient and takes time to listen to her key needs and her best learning style.

Highly recommended English tutor

Jessica has had 4 session with my son. In this time frame, she had done a fabulous job breaking down what his strengths are and what he needs to improve upon. She has provided him with solid tools to improve his writing skills and analytic skills. In order to find the best fit, my son met with two other tutors. His response to his first session with Jessica was, “I can tell she really cares, unlike the other tutors.” I highly recommend Jessica!
