About Jessica

I have a passion for teaching and love tutoring. It is the best feeling in the world when you can help a student to understand something that he/she didn't grasp prior to seeing you. I have a strong background in teaching Special Education and Language Arts (English). I am currently a STARS teacher, which involves teaching students test-taking skills, study skills, note-taking skills, reading comprehension skills, and writing skills.

In the past, I have tutored several students one-on-one after school and have seen successful results in not only their overall grades but also with their self-esteem. I try to give all the students I tutor a feeling of confidence that they can do anything that they put their minds to. I think it is imperative for all students to feel good about themselves and what they can achieve in order for them to succeed in learning. Sometimes all you need is someone to help a "light to come on".

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

The class that I teach in a middle school is called STARS, which stands for Study, Testing, and Reading Strategies. I teach study skills on a daily basis. There are endless ways to learn how to study. The trick is to find out what type of learner you are and then choose the study strategies that would work best with the type of learner you are.
