About Jackie

I have my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Lafayette College and my Master's degree in Family and Child Studies from Montclair State University. Currently, I am working toward my PhD in Family Studies from Montclair State University. Over the past five years, I have worked with young adults as a Teaching Assistant (both in-person and online).

Writing is a huge part of my life. On average, I estimate that I write around 20 pages a week as a research assistant and student. I have completed multiple research reports, an undergraduate level Independent Study, and a 100+ page Master's Thesis. I edit student papers as well as my own, frequently, and love to brainstorm ideas about paper content. I am able to write both research papers and creative writing papers. I both teach and write using APA format however, I also have experience using MLA. I am happy to work one-on-one with you or your child to generate ideas and provide hands on help with your writing process. Or, I can act as an editor to look over a paper to see where improvements can be made.

Psychology has always been a passion of mine. My love for psychology and related social science fields started in high school, where I chose to make psychology one of my HL requirements for my IB diploma. I then continued my passion; my bachelor's degree was in Psychology and my master's incorporated areas of psychology as well as other social science disciplines. My understanding of the field is very well rounded, as I have a strong understanding of research methodology, statistics, theory, and writing. I have excelled in classes such as statistics, cognitive psychology, gerontology, abnormal psychology, social behavior, applied behavioral analysis, psychology of gender, developmental psychology, organizational psychology, health psychology, and educational psychology. I took the GRE Psychology subject test and scored a 660 on it. I have an abundance of experience with APA style writing and research paper writing. I understand how to interpret statistics and incorporate findings into research style writing. I have both taught APA style as well as used it in my own writing, and I understand the challenges that may accompany it.

I am more than happy to tailor my teaching style to accompany your needs. I have a very flexible schedule and can usually work around what work best for you and your family. I am excited for this opportunity and look forward to working with you!

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.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have used Microsoft PowerPoint in numerous projects and presentations throughout my undergraduate and graduate career. I feel very comfortable on both Macs and PCs.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft word is one of my favorite programs, probably because I use it daily. I am very comfortable with the program on both Macs and PCs.
