About Jessica

It's wonderful to have your hobby as a job. My love for writing was so deep that I began tutoring in high school and continued doing so through my undergraduate years. When I first got hired as a tenure track educator of writing I had my first gig in a Writing Center. Then, when pursuing my Doctorate, I tutored and oversaw peer tutors in a Writing Center. Later on I would tutor online for a well known publishing company. Often times because my classrooms are so big, I miss the one-on-one and individualized attention you give a writer in tutoring.

I have taught writing at a wide range of institutions for almost fifteen years. What students will tell you is that I can offer strategies and truly believe that teaching writing through creative methods and strategy works and gives a student self confidence.

I am very observant of how someone learns and do my best in matching a tutee's learning style. In addition, I am very creative and often offer solutions that you can use in a variety of assignments. I am trained in teaching writing, and I have years of experiences that allow me to tap in quickly and offer solutions. I am also very good at reading what your educator and school is looking for in terms of assignments and academic achievement.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Public Speaking

I am trained as a Composition Rhetorician. As such, I also focus on rhetoric and rhetorical discourse strategies. I have taught on the subject matter as well as evaluated and had students do oral presentations. I have also given many presentations at local and national presentations for which I have received recognition.

I am also a spoken artist who has won poetry awards. In addition, I have prior experience working in the business industry.
