About Jesse

I have a lifelong love of teaching and eight years of tutoring experience. As a magna cum laude graduate of Brown University with specializations in English and History, I know I have what it takes to help you research, read, and write effectively!

I have just returned from South Africa on an English Teaching Fulbright where I led literacy interventions with high school students who were struggling with reading and writing in English. At Brown University, I was the Student Director of the Brown University Rose Writing Fellows Program, where I oversaw an extensive writing tutoring program. Each semester, I tutored 10 college students to improve academic writing by editing papers and holding individual conferences and I received extensive training in writing pedagogy. Furthermore, I ran a tutoring program that matched 125 Brown University students with refugee students to work one-on-one on English.

Whether I am tutoring college students in essay writing, working with high school students to develop skills in reading, research, and critical thinking, or working with elementary school students, I bring my deep love of writing and of teaching! I know that writing can be difficult, and sometimes, all one needs is a patient, caring, attentive teacher to work through complex ideas!

Writing is thinking, and I can't wait to think with you.

I am based in Brooklyn and willing to travel to convenient locations across the city. I look forward to hearing from you!

My accolades:
English Teaching Assistant Fulbright Scholar, Magna Cum Laude Graduate, Teacher at Cambridge Youth Enrichment Program (Harvard University, Phillips Brooks House), Student Director (Brown University Rose Writing Fellows Program)
