About Jessica

I often feel that teaching chose me, before I chose it. I have an indescribable love and passion for helping others learn. When taking on a new student or group of students, it's important for me to get an understanding of their interests so that I might incorporate those things into their learning. I believe when you make something relevant to the individual more information can and will be retained. Furthermore, my approach is far more interactive. Tutoring should not look like how a child is being taught in schools. More often then not, I will bring materials with me or take lessons outside to show students their real world applications. My goal, is to help students realize their own potential and reap the benefits of improved grades and test scores.

With a B.A in Literature, my specializations include: Literature & Composition, Grammar, Comprehension, and Analysis for success in schools and standardized testing. I also received a minor in History and do qualify for a teaching certificate in this subject matter in the state of NJ. I am also certified to teach English Language Arts and ESL for grades K-12

I'm also happy to help with college visitations, applications, available scholarships and the financial aid process. I have worked in a university admissions office before and have a unique perspective. I can help you find a university within your budget, area locale and offers your course of interest whether that be pre law or volcanology or anything in between.

My fundamental belief is that the learning process should be fun and enjoyable; at the same time however, I will challenge students to exceed their own expectations. To ensure growth, I will periodically assign homework, assessments, and progress reports. Furthermore, I value feedback and will often ask students and parent/guardians to provide it in order to guarantee satisfaction.

While I do ask for 24 hours in case of a cancellation, I can be flexible and will offer make up sessions.

I genuinely look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve all of your academic and personal goals!

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.

Study Skills

As a high school teacher, equipping students with the study skills they need to succeed is something I do on a daily basis. To ensure students are receiving the study skills that will work best for them, it is important to observe the type of learner they are and capitalize on their strengths and interest. Through organization and time management as a foundation, every student can access necessary skills to not only learn but also retain relevant information.
