About Jessica

I'm a recent graduate of the University of Nevada, Reno with a BS in Integrated Elementary and Special Education (with an ESL endorsement). During my time at UNR I worked with students one-on-one, in small groups, and in whole class settings in subjects such as math, science, and literacy. I've spent the last 18 months working as a teacher in 3rd and 4th grade classrooms at an elementary school in Reno. Before becoming certified, I worked as a substitute teacher in Washoe County School District. While substituting I worked in grades K-12 and learned a great deal about classroom and behavior management.

I love to learn and help others learn. I enjoy using games and hands on experiences to explain difficult concepts to students while using time in the most efficient way possible. When teaching math lessons I believe the use of manipulatives can be an extremely beneficial tool. By using manipulatives and building a strong number sense, students will gain a deeper understanding of concepts and become better problem solvers. While tutoring literacy during my practicums at UNR I used methods such as guided reading, analytical reading inventory (ARI), and Words Their Way. I have experienced success when working with students in the past using these methods and have the resources to continue to do so. I would also complete running records and qualitative spelling inventories, which provide helpful data to not only identify a student's level but also show growth.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

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.

Patient and soft spoken....

My daughter has really appreciated Jessica's form of teaching. She says she's soft spoken, which makes her have to listen closely and she feels like she's learning a lot. Math has been a really difficult subject for my daughter so we both really appreciate Jessica's help and knowledge which is allowing her to gain knowledge and confidence.
