About Jessica

I graduated from Allegheny College, a small liberal arts school in Northwestern Pennsylvania. Here I earned my Bachelor of Arts in English on the Creative Writing track. I minored in Women’s Studies and submitted a poetry composition as my undergraduate thesis. In 2008 I moved to New York City where I studied at the New School for two years and completed a Master of Fine Arts program in Poetry. Currently, I am an Associate Media Editor with Macmillan Higher Learning textbooks. I have previous experience as a tutor with a professional company where I tutored middle school English and Math. I am currently assist high school students with their essay writing skills and common applications for college.

I also have served as a writing judge for the Scholastic Writing Awards, an annual event in which I help to rate short stories and poetry written by young adults grades 7-12. I served as an intern/volunteer for the Director of the Children’s Room at Poets House, a poetry library in Tribeca, one of the most expansive and well-renowned poetry libraries in the United States. I am passionate for learning, the creative arts, and for helping students with reading comprehension, grammar, essay building, and communication.

Throughout my academic and professional careers, I have gained extensive knowledge in writing--essay, journalistic, and creative forms, along with publishing in psychology, engineering, and general fiction genres. Through these experiences (and my tutoring sessions) I have fine-tuned my skills in essay writing, creative writing, proofreading, copy writing, copy editing, grammar, reading comprehension, and literary knowledge.

I am confident that I can assist students with an ability to tackle any of their essay writing needs, whether it be for their current classes (I have experience tutoring in essay writing for English courses, Psychology, Architecture, History) or school applications. I also have extensive experience with my peers in editing, organizing, and proofreading their resumes, cover letters, and applications for jobs, schools, and art programs. Furthermore, I have experience working with younger students in middle school with their reading comprehension, spelling, and grammar skills. I am excited to work with students of all ages! I do my best to keep my students engaged, with encouraging and efficient sessions, so that they can carry on this knowledge with their every day responsibilities.
