About Jessica

My name is Jess and I recently graduated from East Carolina University with honors. I have received awards and scholarships based upon my academic achievement at the undergraduate level.

I have informal experience tutoring; I have helped many of my former college classmates succeed in a variety of classes, such as Spanish, sociology, philosophy, college algebra, and anthropology. I have also tutored high school students in Spanish, algebra, and English (writing, grammar, vocabulary, and book analyses). I have tutored at the elementary level, but not as extensively. At the elementary level, I have worked with students on reading skills, writing skills, and math. I would like to note that it is difficult for me to teach children how to tell time.

I love teaching people new things and helping them understand difficult concepts. I am constantly pushing myself to learn new things as well (right now, I am teaching myself Japanese, tennis, and how to crochet) and I hope that my love for learning and education shines through in my teaching.

My goal is to help you meet your goals. Please contact me to learn more and to schedule lessons.


***********Why choose me? (Categories by Subject)

--Sociology
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Applied Sociology; I am a member of a Sociological Honors Society (AKD); I received a scholarship based upon academic achievement in sociology courses.

--English/ESL
By studying other foreign languages both in a classroom and on my own, I know how to progress through learning a new language. I also have experience helping students of all grade levels learn vocabulary words that are assigned to them. On top of this, I have taught students the roots of words so that they can decipher almost any unfamiliar word thrown at them in the future.

--Spanish
I studied Spanish for four years (four semesters in high school and two in college) and was consistently either the top of my class or in the top 5.

--GRE Test Prep
My scores almost qualify me to teach a GRE class through Princeton Review (Quantitative: 160, Verbal: 162, Analytical Writing: 3.5)

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.

Sociology

I have a Bachelor's degree in Applied Sociology. I graduated with a 3.7 GPA, an academic award, and during my time as an undergraduate received a merit-based scholarship solely because of my academic achievement in my sociology courses. I am a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, which is a sociological honor society. I have experience tutoring other sociology majors, as well as students who majored in other disciplines.
