About Jessica


Bio

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...

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.
